Why i am not able to retract my foreskin ?

OK for months now i have been able to retract my foreskin , however, i cannot retract it further than the base of the head . when retracted there is a symetrical roll of the inside of the forekin that is simply fused to the side of my penis head on both sides meaning that the base of the left and right side of my penis head is unable to be seen. i do not think its phismosis and or frenulum breve as i can roll it all the way to the base of my penis but there is still a ring of foreskin that wraps around just above the base of the penis and connects to the frenulum. does anyone know what it is? or how i can fix/what i can do??

hi,thanks for query.Normally foreskin should be able to retract up to base of glans penis and it is attached to at one place that is known as frenulum.If you any difficulty in doing this you may have some infection or tight skin.Just visit your primary care physician and get diagnosed.If there is some infection you need to proper treatment for this.
wishing you good health.
