Very top of penis exposed.

So about 2 days ago my penis retracted expose my penis head and when I lost my erection, the foreskin came back up but I didn't cover the entire head like it usually does. Instead, the top part of the head is exposed (Not all of it) I was wondering if there was anything I should be worried about as this has been bugging me. Do I need to do anything? Is this normal? Should I be worried?

Re: Very top of penis exposed.

The foreskin is double-sided and sometimes, particularly with a dry penis head, it sticks and doubles up when pushed forwards. Retract your foreskin and apply some lubrication (spit is ok) to the head and shaft. This should make it easier to push your foreskin forwards over the penis head so that it covers the head as usual. If this doesn't work, apply more lubrication and move your foreskin back and forth over the head. Eventually it should return to the normal position.

Re: Very top of penis exposed.

Others said what I would. I agree with what's been said. The only thing I would add is more about specifically what happens.

As you must have noticed, the foreskin doesn't just rub onto the skin beneath it, it's actually rolling and unrolling in a fluid "gliding" manner. Sometimes it can get positioned so that more is rolled to the inside than the outside. This can make it sit further back than usual. That is what happened, isn't it?

This is nothing to worry about. It doesn't hurt anything. It's also really easy to fix if it's bothering you. All you have to do is retract the foreskin and reposition it forward again. It usually goes back forward the right/normal way.

For me, it only gets positioned this weird way if it catches (in an unusual way) while rolling forward.
