Just phimosis?

I've had this problem for a while, pretty sure it's phimosis.

17 years old, when i try to retract the foreskin only the tip of the glans comes out before it becomes to tight to pull back anymore.
It looks ok when not stretched but when it becomes tight my foreskin becomes red and slightly dry sometimes and has tiny spots that just look like raises in the skin not actual spots.

I also have what looks like a weird scar (a long, thin, slightly raised line) running down the left hand side.

Just wondering if anyone has any advice or solutions, i've done research and found out about stretching and the like.

I have read this and understand about it, i was just wondering if there was anything else wrong?

Thanks for any help

Re: Just phimosis?

My best guess is that you have regular phimosis. The stretching instructions in the sticky at the top of the Men's Health forum will fix it, if you follow them regularly and gently.
As far as the scar, it sounds like your raphe is a little off center. This is common, and of no consequence at all. We all start out female in the womb. In those of us who become male, the vaginal lips grow together, leaving a scar that runs from the anus to the tip of the penis.
Good luck with the stretching.
