Brief Answer:
Might be infection or inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you Theo for being with HealthcareMagic!!!

Penile pain and pain in the glans is a very broad topic. If it is swollen and the skin covering it is also swollen then it is called balanophosthitis or infection of the glans penis and the preputial skin. This condition needs antibiotic treatment and NSAIDs.

If there is no obvious visible swelling then it could be inflammation due to excessive ejaculation and masturbation. You should abstain from sexual activity for one to to weeks or until the Pain goes away.

Drinking vitamin C and plenty of fluids would also help alot. I hope I have answered your question satisfactorily.

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.
