Photo might help: Brown patches skin on penis head after circumcision at 17 years old. Probably just a hyperpigmentation as you grow older. If that is the case you don't have much to worry about.

Thank you and good luck !!! ...Read more

Nonetheless, without a detailed history about its onset, duration, degree, progress, evolution, and sequence of events of all symptoms + a direct look at, it is hard to offer accurate diagnosis and advice.

Penis skin not coming out of head?

Phimosis?: I am assuming that you mean the head, or glans, of your penis is not able to be seen, or that you can no longer retract the foreskin over the glans to reveal it. This is a condition known as "phimosis". It usually requires treatment to correct, either topical steroids or a formal circumcision, because it can become a hygeine issue, or worse, get stuck in the retracted position. Go see your doc! ...Read more
