Consider a circ: If you have pain or discomfort from the foreskin with erections, you could try to soften the skin with a course of steroid cream or have a circumcision to remove it entirely. I would not retract foreskin entirely as it might predispose you to paraphimosis if you have difficulty reducing it back over the glans.
