Question
I am circumcised and I have a raw area at the top of my shaft and into the head of the penis. Raw, tender, different color, and it has been this way for a month or so. I have tried normal household creams but there does not appear to be any improvement. The skin feels thin and tender. I am not sure if this is just from vigorous sex (likely) but doubt it is any STD as I am monogamous. It is aggravated by continued sexual activity. Is there a remedy or a cure, or any recommendations?
