Thanks for the reply dr.I have upload the pic kindly see it. Is there any ointment or cream can cure it or what to do for such a case. Does it create any problem in future age of my life.

Dear Sir,

You seem to be having tight frenulum. This is not a rare condition. If this is troubling you the best option will be to go for Surgery. The surgery shall be frenuloplasty and there are no long term consequence. You shall be able to resume your normal life the same evening and shall have to avoid intercourse for 3 weeks.
