Hello,
Tight foreskin is due to phimosis. It is usually present by birth. People with phimosis cannot move their foreskin and cannot clear or wash under foreskin of penis. You must not try to pull it back as it will cause pain. You must consult a doctor who will prescribe you some lotion or gel and if does not helps then it has a simple surgical treatment known as circumcision. It is very common operation and doctor will make a cut on your foreskin and it can be cured easily.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi,thanks for taking time-out to reply and I will follow your advice if what I am trying fails.For 4 days now I have bathed the problem area with white vinegar and water ( 1 part vinegar-3 parts water ) it seems to be working !  But will let you know when and if it clears up.

I'M 46 AND I WASN'T CIRCUMCISED AT BIRTH BY MY PARENTS. I DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS UNTIL I WAS 27. I WENT TO A UROLOGIST BECAUSE THE FORESKIN WOULDN'T RETRACT FROM THE PENIS WHEN I TRIED TO WASH UNDERNEATH IT ON THE PENILE HEAD OR DURING SEXUAL ENCOUNTERS INCLUDING MASTURBATION. IT CAUSED EXTREME PAIN FOR ME. SMEGMA ACCUMULATED AND THE ODOR WAS BAD. THE UROLOGIST HAD TO CIRCUMCISE ME THEN. FOR THIS REASON I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE IN PAIN FROM IT, CIRCUMCISION IS A PROCEDURE YOU SHOULD CONSULT WITH A UROLOGIST TO GET DONE.
