I just recently pulled the foreskin back and it is currently stuck behind the head and won't go back to its normal position. I've tried pushing it back forward but it won't budge. Is this an emergency?

Somewhat: There may be a problem called phimosis which prevents normal retraction of the foreskin, but if it gets stuck behind the glans penis it should be addressed by a physician or a urologist. If applying cold applications to the penis doesn't allow you to bring the foreskin over the glans to its normal position, head to the hospital emergency room to avoid complications. ...Read more

I pull my foreskin back far back and I noticed that there is a small flat very smooth lump you have to look very close to notice it I mess with it but it doesn't hurt or itch it's just there it's been there I believe for like four or more months now?

Get it checked.: The skin of the penis can develop bumps, pimples, and cysts like skin elsewhere on the body. Most of these skin lesions are benign. You must get this checked though to make sure it's not a penile cancer, which is extremely rare in this country, but has a much higher risk in uncircumcised men. Delay in evalution is common, and worsens the prognosis. So see your doctor as soon as you can! ...Read more

I can't pull me foreskin back at all and the head of my penis hurts a lot when it touch it. Help?

See ur Dr/Urologist: There is a chance the tightening is due to a fungal infection or skin change that may be amenable to topical steroid and/or antifungal. Pain suggests infection/irritation.

I can't pull my foreskin back either soft or erect. Is that Phimosis? If it is can I get a cream at a local pharmacy or online?

Yes, but...: Yes, you have phimosis and it is a severe one, which would be very unlikely to retract manually even with the aid of topical steroid cream. Eventually, circumcision is the choice of care; of course, there are risks since nothing is free. So, discuss the details of circumcision with the intended surgeon.

My foreskin around my penis keeps on spliiting and now the skin feels different on my foreskin to the point where I cannot pull my foreskin back.?

Possible Intertrigo: It is difficult to give a definitive diagnosis based on the information you have provided. However, as a general rule, those who are uncircumsied are more likely to develop "intertrigo", a condition where the trapped moisture underneath the foreskin predisposes the skin to yeast overgrowth and inflammation.
Please consider paying a visit to your local dermatologist to evaluate for this condition. ...Read more
