Suggest treatment for dry penis head after circumcision

Hi I am 16 and I am cut but I don t want to be, because with out the forskin my penis has formed little cracks that run from the base of the head to the tip. Its only on one side of my penis though so Im thinking that its from lack of moister. From what Ive been reading the reason why there is a lack of moister is because the forskin protects the head from dryness and I was wondering if there was a way to make a fake forskin I know that there are websites that sell them but Im too young to buy them and It would be okward to receive them in the mail with out my parents finding out. So is there a way to make a homemade one or is there a easy way to stretch out the forskin, I know that there are also devices for that but again I am too young to buy them.

Foreskin have many purposes including it keeps the penis head moist as well as protected to maintain its sensitivity. It is not a necessity to use artificial foreskin because it will not be useful for you. Dry skin on the penis is not typically a sign of a serious condition. Common causes are allergies to chemicals in soap or detergent, too much friction, psoriasis, or eczema. If a person experiences dry skin on the penis and does not know the cause, they should see their doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
