Brief Answer:
Use hydrocortisone cream.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service. I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you first should be checked for infection.
If your foreskin is red and itching and you have discharge you should do an urine analysis to check for infection.
In this case you may need antibiotics.

If you don't have infection but your foreskin is tight you should use hydrocortisone cream. Massage the skin and retract it twice per day will help you relieve fibrosis.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
