Foreskin problem. Please help.

Greetings. This is going to be a bit long and embarrassing story. So please bear with me.
I am a 35 year old male who grew up in a really traditional family in a really traditional country where talking about sex, or anything related to genital is a big taboo or stigma. So until a couple of days ago, I did not know that boys needed to retract foreskins and clean it daily to prevent infection. But my genital never felt itchy or pain  or discomfort. This is how I stumbled into this: I have never had sex before, but I was desperate to find out what I missed out. So I bought a sex doll and applied lots of lubes before trying it on. The first time I thrust my genital into it, the toy pulled back my foreskin. Since the glans was never exposed before, it felt really sensitive. I did some online searching and it turned out to be normal. I could retract and put back my foreskin with no problem. After a couple of day, especially my glans started to feel natural when exposed, I decided to try the toy again. But this time my glans became big all of a sudden (within a few seconds) and it literally looked like a mushroom head. So even after my penis became flaccid I couldn't pull the foreskin over my glans. I was finally able to do that after maybe 15 minute of trying. Now I am scared and embarrassed. Could you please let me know what has happened to me? Greatly appreciate it!

So, this could be a friction reaction would be my guess.  Something new and your tender skin became inflamed and you had some swelling. Is everything back to normal now?

I'm so sorry you weren't taught proper care of your body.

How are you feeling now? Is everything okay?

Here's some information about caring for your penis -

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/phimosis/ - there's some info here about paraphimosis, which is where the foreskin can't be returned to the natural location. It can often be corrected, like yours was, but it can cause your glans (the head of your penis) to become swollen.

If you have phimosis - a tight foreskin - here are some things you can try - https://www.healthline.com/health/how-to-stretch-foreskin

Above all, be gentle with yourself. You weren't taught this. It's awesome that you are taking the time to learn now. Be gentle, physically and emotionally. There's no need for embarrassment. :)
