Question: swollen foreskin

 Illi - Tue Feb 14, 2006 12:47 pm

I am a 19 year old male and I woke up this morning and when I took a shower i noticed that my foreskin was swollen up, it was not pushed down behing the head of the penis but I am not sure if I should wait a few days and see if the swelling goes down or see a doctor.

PS: there is no pain or discomfort, and the foreskin is not stuck behind the head or stuck above the head.
