Dear Doctor, I am a 38 years old uncircumcised male. The glans of my penis is very sensitive. I can t touch it with bare hands b coz on doing so it hurts a lot. Hence I can t even enjoy sex (which I tried enjoying for the first time at this age!). I have no problem stretching the foreskin below my penis head. I have tried applying Lox 2% gel but in vain. Please help

Hello,

Thanks for posting,

If your foreskin is very sensitive then it is either there is notion of serious trauma (probably due to vigorous masturbation) or due to infection (which is very likely given an uncircumcised adult male). If you really want to have a healthy penis free of worries of the foreskin, I suggest you go in for circumcision except of course your religion/personal believes will not permit.
To get some relieve you will need topical antibiotics and maybe topical steroids to treat the infection. In this period of treatment you should avoid sexual contact or masturbation until complete healing. You should seek a doctor's opinion first.
Circumcision will be the best treatment option.

Hope this helps
Dr. Bernard
