Brief Answer:
therapeutic circumcision it is

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Circumcision has its benefits.hygiene and no complications like this are some of them.
What you are having is called prepucial adhesion secondary to phimosis and paraphimosos. All the conservative approaches like topical antibiotics and blah blah yata yata yata are just temporary silencing of issue and it recurr after some time. Also this leads to penile malignancies if recurrent and odds are increased.
Let me give you a simple and one step solution.
Get a circumcision. Therapeutic circumcision is the treatment modality of choice for such issues. There is no shame in it.and it will fix a lot of issues.
As they say it is never too late for a therapeutic circumcision.
I hope it helps. Seek a urologist or a plastic surgeon and let them take care of this 5 minutes procedure and spare you alot of trouble.
Take good care of yourself and think about it and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
