Penis foreskin problems

Patient

Q: Hi my penis seems to have changed. the foreskin seems to be thicker. I cant get hard properly. the foreskin I can get back ok but it wont saty back even when I am hard

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Thickening of foreskin suggests that there is some infection of the foreskin. It could be a fungal infection or a bacterial infection. This may impair the erection as well. This will require careful examination of the penis for identifying the type of infection.
Do meet your doctor and get the penis examined.
Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
