Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have tight foreskin and itching of the foreskin.

This is most likely to be due to infection of the foreskin (Posthatitis)

Since this is sometimes a presenting symptom of Diabetes get your blood sugar levels tests done to rule out diabetes.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .

Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.If problem persists even after taking antibiotics you may need to get circumcised .

I m 25 turning 26 I ve never had a problem with my foreskin on ny penis till now. It all of a sudden shrunk and the skin is very tight I m used to pulling it back several inches and cleaning it and in intercourse it goes back automatically. Recently the tip is small that my gland struggles to come about. What is going on or what medications can,I use?

Hi I have never been shown or told that i should pull my foreskin down and now im 30 and cant I try and can only get it down a very small amount before its too tight It seems that as i do it it starts to look like its pulling my glands in like a waist and it cant pull it back anymore

Basically, i have a tight foreskin. When i pull back,i can see 35% of the glans. But, I see the inner layer of foreskin is stuck at the gland and cant be pulled down further. I m uncircumcised and I thought uncircumcised male should have flexible and movable skin on the shaft. The skin of my shaft is kinda tight because of the inner layer of foreskin stuck on the glans I think. Help Please..

For Urologists:

Like two weeks ago I was experimenting some pain when having sex with my girlfriend, I didn't put attention, as the pain was soft, well, actually the pain was when trying to penetrate her the first time, after that all was good. WE had sex this week, last Tuesday to be sure and the pain was stronger. In the night when I was in the shower I noticed that the top of the foreskin was a little red and swollen (The pennis was erectus at that time) and I try to pull back the foreskin and I felt pain, then I looked a detail and I saw some little cuts on the top of the foreskin, they were minimal, almost visible, I washed whole pennis and when the water was falling it actually hurst even more, like any other cut on the body. I searched and searched the web to found a reason before to go to doctor and my conclusion it was that I have some kind of phimosis, I don't know why, this had never happened to me before. Now the pennis is fine, actually I try to avoid any erection on the day, which is almost impossible but I saw that the cuts gone, but I'm worry that when having sex again they appear. Any advice to know if I will heal quickly, or I have to do something else? Is this serious?

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
