Painful cuts and tight skin around penis area before and after sex, heal after a week of abstinence. What is the cause?

Painful cuts and tight skin around my penis area. I have a slight problem around my penis area. For around 2 weeks now, I have been getting quite a lot of pain around the base of the head of my penis. Before and during sex. Once my foreskin is pulled back where the skin rolls up I have been getting small cuts kind of like paper cuts but a little wider around the outside of my penis. These cuts are quite painful and sting quite a lot. They heal after a week of no masturbation or sex. But the the skin becomes very very tight and once i try to pull back / or my foreskin comes back these cuts break through again ( like cracked lips ) and the area becomes quite swelled and red for a few days. Im wondering if theirs anything i can do. This has never happened before and only occured in the past few months. after sex with partner

hello Vijay

You most probably seem to be suffering from phimosis.
It is a surgically curable problem. You may need circumcision for this problem.

But before this you should consult a surgeon, so that you can be examined and final diagnosis can be made.

Hope this helps
