Patient: My foreskin turns red when I retract it, there is no pain or irration. I am also very clean so I don’t know why it is turning red, can you please tell me how to get rid of the redness, thank you

Doctor: It is difficult to comment on the cause of redness without a clinical examination.But this could be a possibility of the following reason.A tight foreskin may cause redness as an attempt to retract it. Some redness may just be normal! Please have this examined by a doctor.Hope this is helped!
