Can circumcision stop the problem of painful sore foreskin on the penis which keeps coming on and off ?

Hi, Im a 23 year old male. I recently saw a urologist about a possible case of trush which he determined was not and that the fissures on my foreskin , im not cercumsized, are being created from strain in the area which will eventually scar over and create a tightness in the area which could potentially cause the same issue to arise again later. He recommended a possible circumsision. This problem, like he said has occured before which at the time i did not go see a doctor. I took care of it myself until it healed up which is did just suddenly go away i feel like before. During all this i tore my frenulum i think he said it was, the piece of web skin connecting shaft to head of penis. Anyways that all healed up and scarred a bit, the urologist was impressed on how well it healed considering i took care of it myself. The problem im having now is this. The tips of the foreskin that were open before did reopen and its quite painful. They ve healed up for the most part now, a little bit more time and i should be ok there but while all this was going on it seems like a small cut developed around the bottom edge of the penis head right where the shaft meets head. A sore has opened both where the piece i wripped healed up before and then on the other side randomly. The one area has started to swell some and is very uncomfortable to even just lay on my stomach. It doesnt appear to be infected but i have been putting neosporin on it just incase. Ive been trying to keep it clean and dry as much as possible considering im uncercumsized and it just gets covered up naturally. I think the swelling might be going down but im just a bit concerned. It seems like all these problems started happening all at once and went away and now they re back at a very unpleasent time in my life... What should i do?

welcome to healthcaremagic
from the long description of events it seems that you should go for circumscission operation and get rid of perpetual problems

I am 28. My penis is fully covered with the foreskin when in erect position also. I have to pull the foreskin from the penis head manually with hand and it can be pulled up to the head ring but the ring of the pulled skin sticks there. And the penis is tightened, sequezzed up with the pulled skin ring which accumulates at the penis head base. it is painful too. I don t want to get the entire foreskin circumcised. Can i get the half foreskin from the penis head circumcised, is it possible. In that case, when the penis will erect the skin will automatically come back with the increase of the length of penis in erect position. plz suggest.

I am suffering from Acquired Phimosis since one year. I am unable to retract my foreskin which I was able to do earlier. How can I fix this without having to go through circumcision? I never had any problem in pulling back my foreskin earlier. However one day I masturbated many times and my penis tip got sore and then I had sex even though it pained and since then I am sufferring.
