Male 38 years old. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning my foreskin is retracted and has not returned over the head of the penis. Is this normal?
JA: What are all the 38 year old's symptoms? Are they taking any medication?
Customer: No medication
JA: Got it. Have they seen a doctor about this?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in their medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have been using steroid cream to loosen the foreskin after having an infection left it slightly tight

Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am reviewing your question and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Do you get pain as well or just retraction?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Before using steroid cream a few months ago I did get pain and woke up sometimes. I don't wake up because of it now.

Thanks a lot for your patience and I appreciate it. Please wait, I am typing an answer and it may take a few minutes to write a detailed answer. In the meantime, if you have any specific questions, please let me know.

Okay thank you

Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation. The foreskin can give rise to balanitis and that can lead to the symptoms that you had. Since there is no pain, there is no problem and I will consider this retraction to be normal but to be on the safe side, you can use over the counter available Clotrimazole cream twice daily around the foreskin for 10 days but I reassure you in the same way as I would have assured some of my family members that there is nothing serious behind this so please don't stress yourself.
