The care for all long, tight, retractable or non-retractable, foreskin includes: palliatively, try proper cleansing and drying with good ventilation with or without using antifungal agent with/without steroid; definitively, circumcision is the answer to long-term care.

See below: Phimosis in general means that the foreskin cannot retract to expose the head of the penis. It may or may not be symptomatic.

Foreskin is tight: Symptoms can be an inability to retract foreskin or foreskin /penis is painful because retraction is difficult because foreskin opening is too small.

Can be an emergency: Phimosis refers to narrowing of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted over the glans penis (head). Paraphimosis is the state in which a narrowed prepuce, foreskin, is forcibly retracted over the glans and now cannot be un-retracted. If the prepuce opening is too small, it may block the blood supply to the glans, necessitating emergent surgical correction. Phimosis - needs circumcision. ...Read more
Here are some ...: What you have is probably just a long redundant retractable foreskin, to which topical application for infection / inflammation is possible.

But for long overall health, don't ignore practicing low-risk healthy lifestyle without obsession. Best wish. ...Read more
Possibly: Phimosis is a tightening of the foreskin making it difficult or impossible to retract. You may have pain with erections because of the tight foreskin.

Probably yes it is: Circumcision will certainly take care of the problem. Alternative would be to try a course of prescription strength steroid cream such as Betamethasone or Kenalog (triamcinolone).

It is certainly possible but depends ona few things. Was this a newborn circumcision or a circumcision performed as an adult? Did they leave a lot of skin behind? Was there any other surgery performed at the same time? There are some strange diseases that can cause this like balanitis xerotica obliterans

May be or ...: If circumcised, your bothersome event from foreskin would be post-circumcision adhesion onto glans penis, which is usually not bothersome but may usually be corrected easily, or still redundant foreskin, to which recurrent balanoposthitis may still occur. So, likely, it is not a real phimosis. To confirm, see Urologist for confirmation and decide what you may need realistically. ...Read more
Phimosis: Not likely. Phimosis that is now of "pinhole" diameter usually requires some type of procedure (dorsal slit or circumcision) by a urologist.
