Hi there

I have had a red and swollen foreskin for coming up a few months now. It is sometimes difficult to fold back because it has swollen quite a bit, and the waist may have gotten smaller :/ Sometimes its easy enough to retract, other times there's a bit of pain involved - depends on the swelling, which is usually accompanied by an itch.
When folded back, there is often some wet, yellowish discharge present, at the base of the glans and over the retracted foreskin. I try to clean it up twice a day. It seems to seep from breaks/lesions in the foreskin, and smells pretty bad...
Possibly occurred initially due to masturbation, I don't purposely retract the foreskin - maybe this caused a break?... The glans doesn't look too unhealthy, just a slight colour variation (a few red spots/patches).

Could be balanatis? maybe a yeast infection... not sure really... Can't be an STD, never had intercourse.

any help in diagnosis/treatment will be well received!!!
