Hi, for the past three years i have been getting cuts on the tip of my foreskin and hurts. They take a while to heal. Went to the doctor when this first happened and he gave me 2 creams, one to help it heal and the other to help it stretch and relax the foreskin. It helped a little but continued to happen and have noticed that it is tightening. I have tried the stretching exercises as well but still continues to happen when i masterbate or engage in intercourse. It has halted my sex life and as a result ending my previous relationship. I have since relocated to a new city after the treatment. I would like to start dating again but do not want this issue anymore. Thanks for your advise

Thanks for posting your query and sharing pictures.

The common causes of this kind of problem are:

>Recurrent infection
>Tight foreskin.

Infection can be very well being treated with antibiotics which were already given to you. In case of tight foreskin repeated stretching leads to skin tightening, formation of scar and recurrent problem.

Please consult a Surgeon/Urologist for this and get your self examined. After examination he may advise some treatment, in some cases removal of foreskin is advised to cure this.

There is nothing worry, please see your doctor.

In mean time use of condom will help and provide relief during sex.

I hope this helps.
