Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.

Further to our discussion I would like to know whether you are able to retract your foreskin completely over glans penis or not?

If you are unable to retract it completely , the discomfort that you have is mostly due to what is called as Phimosis .

However this can be confirmed only on clinical examination by a qualified General Surgeon or Urologist .If it turns out to be positive(Phimosis) you will need to get circumcised .

This is a simple surgery done under local anaesthesia as a out patient procedure and offers permanent cure and helps to have enjoyable sex for rest of the life.

Thanks and Regards.

Hi yes.. I can retract it, but I notice that as the penis grows it seems to become more comfortable. I would not say it is pain just mild discomfort

If it is partially retractable you may use lubricant like Xylocaine jelly while masturbating .

Brief Answer:
Do not use steroid cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for follow up.Using steroid cream or any other cream may cause injury to foreskin resulting into scarring and thickening of foreskin that will cause more discomfort .

Get examined by General Surgeon and follow his advice
