Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi I am 17 year old boy I have a problem from my childhood i did not notice that at that time. While I get erection the foreskin does not move back it is to tight to move it . Even If I move It by using hand It pains me a lot and again the it comes back to the original position If I touch the head of the penis it makes me feel horrible so kindly say me whats the problem and what is the treatment for that. Thanks in advance



Hi Guest,

You need to stretch your foreskin.  Using your fingers, spread the opening as far as you can comfortably.  Do this as often as you can, OR, get an erection and pull down on the shaft skin so that the head of your penis spreads the opening. 

The more you do this the faster the results.  Don't hurt yourself although there may be some discomfort.  Don't force your foreskin back.  Just apply gentle pressure.  It may help to do it in the shower as the water can help loosen the skin.

The head IS going to be sensitive at first.  It has always been protected so the nerves aren't used to being touched.  NORMAL.

Good luck.



I would do what Medic-Dan said.



"stretching" the foreskin may help but it may not... if you were NEVER circumcised (foreskin removed) and have not been taught growing up to push the foreskin back for cleaning etc you may have adhesions- which are basically scar tissue or where tissue on the glands penis has adhered to the foreskin tissue making it difficult to pull back.

If you were circumcised the foreskin can actually reattach around the head of the penis making it hurt everytime the foreskin is attempting to retract.

I don't know which category you fall under, but as a boy coming into adulthood, i do know that this is important and the erections will continue whether or not they are comfortable.. however you need to speak to a pediatrition or your doctor prior to trying to stretch the foreskin because if you do have adhesions at the tissue of the glands penis you can incur some bleeding which maynot stop easily and would be more damaging (and embarassing) than the foreskin issue. There are creams that can be applied to the foreskin to help ease the skin over the head of the penis but again that comes from the doctor..
my son (6) was not circumcised and his foreskin wouldn't retract, we tried the creams it still wouldn't retract, the doctor sent us to a urologist (doctor specializing in problems with urine, urinary tract, and genital structures) who found the "lumps of adhesions" all around the glands penis basically "stitching" the foreskin to the glands penis.. and he ended up doing a circumcision, which eleviated the problem, Im not sure of your religion or culture if this is possible for you, but the doctor would be able to offer you the best answers and the safest way to proceed with handeling the problem


You are blessed with an erogenous, highly-innervated foreskin. Many guys would envy your foreskin even though it does not retract. You display great wisdom in wanting to avoid circumcision. Do not be worried. You are normal for your age.

To retract the foreskin, one must grab the foreskin on the shaft and pull it rearward, but do not force it. If the foreskin will not retract then you must consider leaving it as it is or doing stretching exercises to make it retractable. You are fortunate to have a choice.

Having sex with a non-retractile foreskin depends on just how tight your foreskin is. If it is really narrow and absolutely won't retract, then you can have penetrative sex without pain. On the other hand, if it just a little bit tight, then it is likely to be forced back during sex and that will hurt because it is tight. It only hurts when a tight foreskin is forced back. In that case, it probably would be better to stretch your foreskin until it glides easily back and forth

It is not necessary to have a foreskin that will retract. Some men live their entire lives with a non-retractable foreskin. They can masturbate, have penetrative sex, get married, and father children with a foreskin that does not retract. Some
believe that a penis with a non-retractile foreskin has more sensation and that sex is better. One just needs to see that your partner is well lubricated before you attempt penetration. One may need to add some personal lubricant if she does not lubricate.

Almost all boys are born with a foreskin that does not retract. This is normal. It takes years for the ability to retract to develop. About ½ of boys have a retractable foreskin by 10.4 years of age. Many adolescents still have foreskins that have tips that are too narrow to pass back over the penis head. These foreskins may be gently stretched over a period of time to cause them to widen. About 98 percent of foreskins become retractable by age 18.

It is normal for teens to have a foreskin that does not retract. One’s foreskin is still developing. If you want your foreskin to retract (not everyone wants a retractable foreskin), then you can help it develop ability to retract by stretching it.

If you choose to stretch your foreskin, then the goal is to have a foreskin that glides smoothly back and forth so as to provide maximum pleasure.

When your penis is erect, gently pull your foreskin back against the head of the penis. As the head attempts to pass through the foreskin it will stretch the skin a little. Do this several times a day and in a few weeks or months your foreskin will widen and you will be able to retract your foreskin. Do NOT force retraction. Do NOT cause yourself pain.

It works by tissue expansion. Stretching skin induces “mitosis” which is a word that means “division of cells”. New skin cells are formed and the skin expands but it takes some time. The increase in size is permanent. Be patient and give mitosis time to work.

The important thing is to put the skin under tension every day so that it will grow wider.
