Hello
Thanks for feedback .

It is mostly due to infection of the foreskin ( Posthatitis)
Take following medications for a week
1) Antibiotic Augmentin twice daily
2) Anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily
3) Topical antibiotic ointment like Neosporin to be applied over foreskin and underneath it .

Avoid sexual encounters till it gets cured completely .

Ensure to wash and clean genitals with warm water twice daily .By the way do you have difficulty in retracting foreskin over glans penis ?

It should get resolved over a week .
