Hey Johnpaul. Being unable to retract your foreskin is not a huge problem as far as hygiene is concerned. A healthy male's urine is sterile, so peeing with a tight foreskin causes no problem and actually helps to clean the area. You can also clean the penis head by using a squeeze-bottle filled with water: jet the water into the gap between the foreskin and glans. Yeast infection should not be a problem unless you are susceptibe, in which case an over-the-counter cream will clear the yeast infection if used according to the instructions. If you have a yeast infection, do not attempt to stretch your foreskin as this may result in splits at the tip of the foreskin.
If you have followed the stretching exercises in the sticky at the top of the Men's Health Board and you have not seen significant progress in two months, you might need to consult a doctor. As I have already said, you might have frenulum breve and this could explain the inability to retract your foreskin. In this situation, only a doctor would be able to examine your penis and give a definite explanation. Of course, you need to be careful of a doctor's advice because not all doctors are uncircumcised themselves and, therefore, do not have personal experience of tight foreskins and/or frenulum breve.
My best wishes, Johnpaul. I hope your difficulties will be resolved soon. Don't worry: many guys have been through this sort of situation. You will be ok.
I hear the beat of a different drummer
