Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin of the penis is tight and cannot be pulled back. It is normal in uncircumcised boys, but resolves with age. It is of concern if there is pain and swelling during urination or erection. If an infection develops, it is advisable to consult a urologist. The doctor may treat it with a steroid cream or may suggest going for a circumcision.
