Why is my foreskin having slight tear with intercourse

Brief Answer: Trauma vs infection... Detailed Answer: Hi, The tear is most likely due to trauma from a rough sexual experience. Inflammation of the foreskin is the second most common cause of tearing. However infection is generally associated with other complaints such as swelling, redness, burning sensation and so on. (I hope you do not have diabetes). If there are no accompanying symptom, do not be concerned. Apply simple moisturizers on the affected areas and avoid sexual activity until the tear heals. Off course if the tear is large, it may need repair at your doctor's office. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
