Foreskin Stuck after doctor retracted it.

Patient: My doctor pulled back my foreskin for the first time yesterday but now the foreskin is kinda stuck. It’s about an inch below the head and i can’t move my foreskin back over to just below the head because it’s so tight. What should i do?

 

 

Doctor: The foreskin may be stuck due to the development of inflammation and edema. You may have to get it examined by your doct or and prescribe you anti-inflammatory medication if there is swelling present.
