Brief Answer: May be due to inflammation by bacteria or fungi Detailed Answer: Hello, Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic! If there is no recent pulling back and retraction of foreskin, then a bacterial or fungal infection can be suspected as cause. This if confirmed needs antibiotic and or antifungal creams. If there is recent pulling back and retraction of foreskin, then a paraphimosis can be suspected which needs urgent urological evaluation. However, a Physical examination is mandatory to assess this since there are variety of other causes that needs to be ruled out. Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future. Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied.
