This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans.

BXO or Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans

To diagnose BXO or LSA: "The glans demonstrated sclerogenous ivory colored patches located perimeatally, which is the classic manifestation that determines diagnosis." (Meuli)

LSA can often be caused by the abrasive effect of a primary phimotic ring against the coronal ridge of the glans and/or often result in the development of a secondary phimotic ring.

The lichenoid form of ring is difficult or impossible to stretch. Please read the basic 3 sentances of information in the abstract from Treatment of Phimosis before continuing here.
