Penis hurts when not covered by foreskin. What could be the cause?

My boyfriend has expressed to me that the head of his penis hurts really bad and that it has always been like that. If his foreskin is not covering the head of his penis he is in a lot of pain, its to the point that even when taking a shower he dreads pulling the foreskin back to clean him self because he is
in so much pain, why does it hurt him so bad? It even hurts him during oral sex and intercorse but only if the head of his penis is exposed if its covered by foreskin he is fine.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern. I am glad you bring this up in a public forum. What you have is secretions from glands surrounding the glans of your penis. I hope you have good sexual hygiene and clean your genital area by pulling the foreskin back everyday. This should prevent any balanitis which is infection and inflammation of the skin surrounding the foreskin and prevent the bad odor as well. You may also have phimosis which might be the reason you are having pain when the head of your penis is not covered by prepuce. I hope you consult a surgeon for possible surgery. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
