No steroids: The betaderm part of the cream you're using contains a steroid, which can cause problems when applied to delicate tissues like the foreskin.

Is it normal for penis foreskin when pulled back while dry humping with erection to be very sensitive and painful?

May need reduction: If the foreskin of an uncircumcised penis gets pulled back and cannot be reduced (meaning returned to its normal position covering the head of the penis), this can be a problem. Often the foreskin will swell and not be reducible. This is called a paraphimosis. If this is the case, and you cannot reduce it with gentle pressure, you may want to be evaluated by your physician who can do so. ...Read more
