My penis skin remains retracted a bit on non flaccid state as well, exposing the head glans? i have never even had circumcision but my penis skin has been like that since my puberty years. it results in dryness of head area, what can i do to hydrate?

After bathing apply Aquaphor sparingly and rub in gently and completely. After going to the toilet, if again dry then repeat the Aquaphor

In order to make the foreskin supple use baby oil and gradually retract your foreskin a little every day then pull it forward to cover the glans till gradually it becomes supple enough to be retracted and brought forward with ease. This will save you a circumcision. When it will be supple enough to cover your glans you will not have the problem. Good luck
