phemosis with a circumsized penis

As a child I was circumcised, but as an adult from time to time I seem to develop phemosis, where my foreskin is smaller around than the glans (glands), and pulling it back causes tearing.

Well you are probably asking the first question is, how can you have phemosis if you've been circumcised already?

With my penis for some reason, I don't know why, instead of mine being like most males and dangling while flaccid, mine actually goes into hiding, which in turn gives me a foreskin even though I was properly circumcised.

So, my question is what is causing the phemosis, why doesn't my penis dangle when flaccid, and is there a permanent fix to stop the phemosis?
