welcome to healthcaremagic forum
you have no problem except foreskin
it is logical that in erect stage size of penis is increase but skin remain the same .thats why you have problem
you are right you have partial phimosis and circumcision is the only solution
better to consult surgeon and get it done
apply good lubricant improve movement
i hope i have answered your question

Hi Saurya,

Welcome to HCM.
When you forcibly try to retract the foreskin, minor skin abrasions take place which leads to inflammation and swelling.
Repeated minor tears in the foreskin will lead to worsening of the problem as healing of tears is accompanied with contracture.
Best would be to consult a surgeon and on examination if his opinion is that circumcision is necessary then I suggest you go for circumcision.
Wish you all the best.
