You may be having the beginning of Phimosis, a tightness of the foreskin.
There are three main treatments for phimosis, the last is circumcision.
The first treatment is simple. You should use stretching exercises after application of a steroid cream like 0.05% betamethasone or 1% hydrocortisone, this is available OTC at all pharmacies.

In most cases, this will remove the tightness of the skin.

If it persists, you should show to your doctor. The second treatment which avoids circumcision is also surgical, but it is not complete removal of the foreskin. It is called preputialplasty. This is like Z plasty and avoids total removal of the foreskin as in circumcision.

If this is not possible, then circumcision is the final answer.

If you have to go for surgery, your doctor will decide whether you need preputialplasty or circumcision.

But first, you can try the stretching exercises at home. This is enough in most cases.

Hopefully this will solve your problem. I do hope I was able to help you in resolving this issue. If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.
Thank you and I wish you the best of health - stay safe!
