Brief Answer: Apply moisturizer and wait... Detailed Answer: Hi, You seem to be developing frequent cuts / tears on the foreskin. In the absence of redness, itching and any other symptoms, I believe there is no signs of inflammation. In this circumstance, I suggest you not to handle the affected area. Apply a thin layer of regular moisturizer over it and keep the region clean. Watch the symptoms progress. Itching, more random breaks, redness or any other symptoms develops over the next few days need to be reported to the doctor. Usually the pain and cuts go away in a few days. If the cuts persist, you need to get your blood sugar checked. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

Sir

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise

This past summer I had a white patch of skin under the top part of my penis tip. It was milky in color and looked like dry skin. It did not hurt at all. A week later I had the urge to urinate and a slight tingling after I urinated. I went to the clinic and the doctor told me that I had a large amount of protein in my system which had most likely caused an infection. She told me the white patch looked like a friction rub. I had been masturbating a lot.
I met a girl in September and we are still together now. We had unprotected sex in October in November the symptom came back there was a tiny bump on the shaft of my penis with no pain and it again bothered me when I urinated. I went to the Dr. to get a full blood work. Everything came back negative except for Herpes 1.
Its now Feb and I see another pimple like bump on my circumcision line. It does not hurt but looks very pale. It is close to where the first abrasion was located (this are is now darker). I have been paranoid and been putting ointments and rubbing alcohol on my penis to get rid of any germs. Again the bumps never hurt, never flake or fill up with puss like a typical cold sore that I've had years ago on my lip.
Could this been a skin issue due to my girlfriends vaginal fluid (she just went on the pill), hygiene ( i work out 5 days a week), or an STD that hasnt shown up. I have also never seen any discharge from my penis. It takes several weeks for it to go away and normally there is just one.

I'm 19 yrs old..& NOT circumcised. Wednesday nigh my girlfriend was giving me oral sex & I started to bleed A LOT! I was very afraid. I went to the hospital that night & all they said was that I had 2 lacerations on my penis.I was bleeding up until I got onto the room bed in the hospital.I think I snapped the frenulum. I'm not too sure at all. I feel no pain or anything like that. The doctors sent me home & said that all I needed to do was apply neosporin & stuff like that for about a week and also abstain from sex for a week or 2. I want a better outlook on this matter because I don't know what to do. Can you help? Also there is a tiny black scab right under the urine slit. It doesn't burn or anything I just want to know how I should remove it & when I can resume sexual activity.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
