Why does the foreskin of my penis overlap the head of my penis ?

Sometimes my foreskin of my penis overlaps the head of my penis and becomes somewhat painful so I go to the bathroom to pull the skin back. this happens about 2-3 times daily, also my foreskin is a little sticky. I do wash it everyday. Do I have anything to worry about? what should I do?

Hi,thanks for query.You might have lax foreskin and some infection due to that.Normally when you retract the foreskin you can see some white stuff collected,this known as smegma,this needs to be cleaned on regular basis,at least once a week,this can lead to infection and pain etc.Please visit your primary care physician.
wishing you good health.
