Hi. How long have you had this problem? Any redness or pain involved?

Around six weeks fore skin sometimes splits and bleeds and is sore with redness occasionally

OK. This is called phimosis. It sounds like you also have balanitis--a yeast infection of the penis and foreskin. For now you can try Lotrimin or Lamisil cream applied three times a day followed in ten minutes by over the counter calendula or Eucering cream for a week. If that doesn't resolve the problem you need to see a doctor for prescription ketoconazole cream Let me know if you need any more information please
