Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello Dr.
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   I have a strange problem which I noticed recently. My foreskin does not come down. Also, the internal part (the tip which is covered by the foreskin) is extremely sensitive.
I think this problem is called Phimosis.
User :   Could you please advise me on this?
Doctor :  
It is called Paraphimosis
Doctor :  
If the foreskin cannot be retracted over the glans ( red part of the penis)
Doctor :  
it is called Phimosis
Doctor :  
If the retracted part does not come back then it s called Paraphimosis
Doctor :  
as in your case
Doctor :  
Were you able to retract prviously?
User :   No
User :   In my case its Phimosis because I am not able to stretch the foreskin downwards
Doctor :  
Ok first the foreskin is to be seen how far it can be stretched
User :   Ho can I do this?
Doctor :  
First the general surgeon checks the skin over it
Doctor :  
and if can be stretched he can do a minor procedure to correct this
User :   whats is the procedure that is followed? Is it Circumcision?
Doctor :  
Circumscison is for phimosis and to cut the extra skin
User :   Is there any other alternative to surgery?
User :   I am asking this because its not that my foreskin does not come back even slightly
User :   but the issue is that it does not stretch to expose the complete head which I have seen in the movies
Doctor :  
Ok I understand now
Doctor :  
But it is not a problem tht you have
Doctor :  
Do not compare to what you see in the moview
Doctor :  
Those are the procedures done by men for the sake of acting in it
Doctor :  
as far as a person is able to penetrate and able to do the intercourse without pain
Doctor :  
it is fine
User :   Thats right Dr. but the thing is that I have never had sexual relationship and now I will be getting married in 6 months, therefore I am concerned and I would like to know if I am suffering from any problem
User :   I am able to masterbate without any issues
Doctor :  
so you are able to mastrubate without any problem than most probably you need not worry
Doctor :  
as the sexual relation will also be fine
User :   Logically speaking when penis enters vagina, then the foreskin should slide back. But how much I do not know and if my foreskin does not slide back, then it indicates a problem
Doctor :   it is not true

User :   Dr., could you please have a look at the first picture of this URL?
Doctor :  
the skin will retract back when it gets erect not
Doctor :  
when it enters vagina
User :   when erected, my foreskin go back slightly more than this
User :   while in actual, it should be like the second picture
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
the second picture is the normal one
Doctor :  
if you are able to get the skin back like what it is in second picture than it is more than sufficient
User :   Then what do you suggest. Should I see a doctor because my dick is similar to the one shown in the first pic
Doctor :   For what you wanna see a doctor? when every thing is normal
Doctor :   the first picture will be like when it is not erect
User :   In my case it looks like this when its erected
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
than i suggest you to see a general surgeon
User :   I stay in India. Do you recommend anyone in Delhi/Noida?
Doctor :   one minute..
Doctor :   Dr AAAAAAA dev, C-537 , Sarita Vihar , Delhi- 110044
Doctor :   area is Badarpur Road
Doctor :   you can consult him
User :   Dr, I have a couple of more questions
Doctor :   yes please..

User :   The head of the penis is quite sensitive and sometimes I feel burning sensation whil urinating
Doctor :  
User :   does this indicate any other problem?
Doctor :  
because of the tight skin there might be difficulty in free passage of the urine resulting in the local irritation
Doctor :   also there may be some infection also
Doctor :  
not to worry
Doctor :   all the effects of tight skin will be reversible with treatment
User :   and what about the sensitive head of the penis? is it normal?
Doctor :  
it is normal
User :   or is it due to the tight skin only?
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and the sensitivity of skin is necessary for the sexual act
User :   ok
