Brief Answer: May be due to inflammation by bacteria or fungi Detailed Answer: Hello, Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic! If there is no recent pulling back and retraction of foreskin, then a bacterial or fungal infection can be suspected as cause. This if confirmed needs antibiotic and or antifungal creams. If there is recent pulling back and retraction of foreskin, then a paraphimosis can be suspected which needs urgent urological evaluation. However, a Physical examination is mandatory to assess this since there are variety of other causes that needs to be ruled out. Stay healthy and thank you for consulting!
