Re: Red/Sore Penis and Foreskin
With an erection, you should be able to retract your foreskin so that it is behind the rim of the penis head (that is, behind the corona). When I do that, my foreskin bunches up behind the corona and stays there until I push it forwards. During sex (with or without a condom) the penis head is completely exposed and the foreskin is behind the head.
Your foreskin is tight, so you can't retract it fully when you have an erection. That's fine: eventually, you will be able to. Yes, you should be careful not to get it "stuck" behind the corona, although it's easy enough to solve that problem if it happens. Just squeeze your penis head between thumb and forefinger so that you lose your erection and use some lubrication (saliva is ok) to help push your foreskin back over the glans.
To stretch your tight foreskin, find the sticky headed Stretching To Fix Tight Foreskin (Phimosis) at the top of the Men's Health Message Board. Follow the instructions. It takes time, so you need patience and you need to do the stretching exercises regularly. Be persistent. You will be happy with the results. When I was your age, my foreskin was like yours but now it's easy to pull it back when erect.
The redness you described in your original post is because of the tightness and because of the action you use when masturbating. Eventually the redness will disappear. When you shower and your penis is soft, pull back your foreskin and wash that area. After you shower, dry it thoroughly. Retract your foreskin when you urinate. Your glans will be very sensitive: try to touch it as much as possible (for example, when you are cleaning it in the shower) so that it loses the sensitivity.
You definitely do not need to be circumcised and you don't need to see a doctor. Many guys have been in exactly the situation you are in and they have solved the issue with a little effort. You will be ok, mate.
