You can have phimosis in which there is difficulty in retracting the foreskin over glans.

The inflammation of the glans penis called balanitis is the cause of it. You can apply a topical steroid cream to help in phimosis.

If no improvement than daycare surgery that is circumcision should be planned.

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

Take care
