This : This may be a condition known as phimosis, where the foreskin is inflamed and may become difficult to retract. When the glans, or head, of the penis is engorged during an erection, the tight ring of inflamed tissue may not allow the foreskin to retract. It is typically treated by circumcision, or in some cases topical steroid creams or ointments. You should be examined to your physician to confirm this diagnosis.
