I was circumcised last year for a tight foreskin and yeast infections. Not all the skin was removed. It covers my corona when flaccid and there is a wad of scar tissue on the underside of my penis. Do I need a revision?

In the meantime, I agree attempts to stretch your foreskin are more likely to cause harm than benefit. Stop trying.
