Hi Saurya, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You are having Phimosis where you will have scars and wont be able to retract the foreskin. Since you have consulted a Urologist, may be you can try Pulling it slowly and gradually after applying a heat pad. Do it twice or thrice daily and apply Fucidin Ointment regularly. Try it for a week, if it is not helping, may be you can opt for Circumcision. Do not pull it forcefully.

Good Luck.

I'm an 18-year-old male, not sexually active, virgin. I have good hygiene, shower at least 3 times a week. But I suspect I have some sort of penis infection. There is no pain or itchiness, but only those microscopic bumps at the edge of my penis's head, which worry me. They're mainly on top, but I have a little on the bottom as well. I'm also uncircumcised. Can you please help me what to do?
