Tight foreskins do not cause dryness and soreness. You may have a yeast infection which is causing all three.
Tell us how long your foreskin has been tight. How far can you retract it? How long have you been experiencing the dryness and soreness?
Are you sexually active with a partner? If so, have you always used condoms?

I dont think I have a yeast infection because there is no swollen...., It is dry when I am not playing with it! otherwise its not .... It is very very painful when my finger or anything is in contact with my gland when I am dry, It is only sour when I am hard and not dry... I have been this way since I was 5 years old.... My father and the doctor were trying to force my foreskin back, it was a nightmare for me, it was so suffering and painfull so at the age of 8, I move to My mother's house and I then nobody try to retract my foreskin... so my gland as stay cover all until teenager ... when I first have sex, it was very tight like picture 26... the streching is now like picture 19 since around 4 month. I am now 28. I am active sexually, always with condom (everyone should to avoid aids...)but Its always sour when the tip of gland the part that can be uncover toutch something....when the gland is recover it is no sour.... sorry for the english... I am french speaking so ... thank's for helping...
How about trying a treatment for yeast just to be sure? You can use any over the counter preparation ordinarily marketed to women.
The progress you've made so far is good, so don't give up on this. I suggest trying the treatment and continuing the stretching. In the event the dryness doesn't change, we have at least eliminated yeast as the problem.
Are you writing from France?

Ok I will get some canesten tomorow... Can you tell me how to use it? His it possible that I have yeast since I was a little boy? Do I just put this cream inside and move the foreskin a bit like I can? no I am not in france, I am in quebec....
By the way thank's for the advice....
I have been reading this forum all night maybe 6 hours since 2 day... My english will improve a lot
I don't think you have had any yeast problem for that many years. When you were young, your foreskin probably wasn't developed sufficiently to be retracted. In some boys, retraction isn't possible till late teens.
You don't exhibit other signs of yeast, so it isn't certain that's your problem. The dryness is a possible sign.
The product should come with some directions. Any possible area of infection should be covered.
Hi, here are some pics of my penis. I can retract more an more day after day...I was wonder if you could tell me how come the tip of glan, were is the opening, is red? is it yeast? If my frenulum is ok or if it need to be stretch to? and if you think my stretch technique is good?...
By the way I did not found canesten yesterday but I found "loprox" (witch is ciclopirox olamine 1%)
Can it do the job?
I also found Emla an betamethasone o.1% (dont know what will I do with that but it might help when I will know how to use it!) Can you tell me more about those ointment please?
Your technique is good. I can see in the second picture that work needs to continue.
Redness on the inside is normal. It should look the same as the inside of your mouth, because the inside of the penis is the same kind of tissue as that which lines your mouth. It's called mucosa, or mucous membrane. I don't anything unusual about the color displayed.
Is the newly mentioned preparation designed for yeast problems with genitals? That should be your guide. In regard to the second product, let's wait for a comment from Paul.
Hi, I finnaly found clotrimazole 1% I use it since yesterday no change.... with the picture you saw, you guy think's I have yeast??? than'k a lot Jim for all the advice I was pretty anxious about all that and now it seems to be a solution to this probleme.... before I tought only about two solution circuncision or suicide .... the first solution was far to much painfull for me.... and the second was because I was so afraid to have to go to hospital and that they would put me a cathetere in there... so I was decided to take lorazepam iv then insuline until death at 50 years old.... still 22 years left lol now I found my probleme so small ... and ridiculous when the solution look so easy the way you talk about it....
And paul if you can comment the other ointment I have and their use..
-- Emla (I know it will help me with the pain when toutching my glans)
-- betamethazone 0.1 % (I have read other post when you say to apply only at a precise point were skin is tight why what is the bad effect of this ointment)
-- Loprox ciclopirox olamine 1% (I know its an anti fungal but not if its ok to put there on my penis or pertinent to)
if you wonder were I took those ointment without prescription ... it was just sample that I found at work (I work in hospital) sorry to shy to go see a doctor about that ... will never go...
I went once, 3 years ago, and it was a urologist ... she terorise me(scared me to death) ... an before go I had taken lot's of benzodiazepin to stay calm and dont panic.... even with that I was so scared an anxious... I ask her not to toutch me ... she was angry she said wath can I do if you dont let ne toutch... an I reply - I will show you ... finaly she said I could cut you but the pain will be even more high after...
So I left with my two solutions mentioned before.....
I THINK'S THE SITES who host my pics... photobucket dont like penis pics... the ban my profil...for TOS reason...what is TOS???
That's why the pic are not there I just open another... if you know another place to place pics,,, were they accept penis...tell me!
HI Jim and paul, I have now to take a break maybe for a day! because my glans and foreskin is very sore because of to much stretching 4 times day 5 min and it is very uncomfortable.... I use canestin cream since 3 day's even if I dont think yeast is my probleme... I can now retract 3/4 of glans when flacid... I try to toutch my glans with lots of lub... it ok but I cant move so I can't imaging having sex now? I need do desensibilise a little just to be able to move inside a lubricated vagina!
And paul if you can comment the other ointment I have. and their use..
I dont have instruction because I take sample directly in a doc office...
-- Emla (I know it will help me with the pain when toutching my glans... how to use it ? do I put it directly on glans?)
-- Valerate betamethazone CREAM 0.1 % (I have read other post when you say to apply only at a precise point were skin is tight! why? what is the bad effect of this CREAM? Also you said to use ointment not cream... I only have cream can I use it?)
