Swollen foreskin under Gland

I'm a 18 year old boy, I masturbate regularly and for the first time i managed to retract my foreskin all the way.

However, i did not put my forskin back over the gland/bellend after and the following day under the head the skin was swollen.

There's no pain just more discomfort. I don't know what it is and hope it will go down over time but it has been a few days now. Is there anything i should try?

It is more worrying because i've just got a girlfriend and obviously i do not want her to see this.

Thank you.

Re: Swollen foreskin under Gland

It's probably gone down by now. This is quite a common effect of leaving it retracted.
Try doing some stretching once all the swelling has gone down. See my sticky at the top of the Mens Health board. Sounds like you have a very mild case of tightness which should be fixed very quickly with regular gentle stretching.

Re: Swollen foreskin under Gland

The foreskin is back over the glans though?

No it is painful to try and move over the glans.

Get to a doctor or ER immediatedly. That's very serious.

Re: Swollen foreskin under Gland

Good luck. See the section on paraphimosis in my stretching instructions. Don't let them circumcise if there is any other way. They should be able to get it back over so the swelling can go down. Then you can let it heal and stretch so it doesn't happen again. I stress that this is an EMERGENCY. Go now!
