Question: Have sore on inside of foreskin and smaller one on head of penis. Have lasted now for nearly five months. Will seem to be healing and then will come back. Very painfully. Occasionally will go all the way to an open blister with a small drop of moisture coming out, then heal again. As have had yeast infections in past, treated it as such at start. Refused to heal. Dr suspected herpes, although I have not been in a position to be exposed to herpes in 30 years. 30 days on Milan-valacyciovir has made NO change at all. daily use of Calmoseptine cream, during last 40 days, seems to control pain-and prevent new sores from forming, however does nothing too cure existing sores which continue to contract and expand at their whim?

Hello
Thanks for writing to us.

The problem that you have concerned now is what is called as Chronic Balano Posthatitis, which has been embarrassing you over a period of years .
In view of the chronic nature and repeated episodes of infection, I would advise you to get circumcised .This is a very small day care surgery carried out under local anaesthesia. Please consult qualified a Urologist or Surgeon for evaluation and surgery.This will solve your problem for forever.
Hope I have answered your query.Let me know if you have any more questions
Regards
Dr.Patil.

I am a 40yr old male. 5'10" and weigh 165lbs.
I have protected sex with different women. I have started noticing a red bump after intercourse. It is generally painful, but goes away after a few days.
Recently another painful bump has appeared and just after intercourse I started feeling a burning sensation when urinating and discomfort that same day. It has been 4 days since the intercourse, but the area is still painful to touch when I clean it in the shower. I am not circumcised.

Frenulum Breve and treatment
I'm fifteen and my frenulum/ banjp string is short, I remember tearing it awhile back
. I could not forget that much pain. I went to my doctor after it naturally healed and now as I get a erection it hurts and is causing discomfort. especially if i trrty to pull the foreskin back also if I try and lay it out flat when flaccid it bends and this ia concerning me greatly, my doctor said to wait till I was sixteen and that's in less then half a year. I have been researching some treatments like frenulumplasty and stretching and circumcision, I am wanting a referral to a urologist/specialist to see their opinion but I don't know if shell give me it, so will I have to wait a few more months or can I get it now since I've been waiting for over a year! and what treatments are available. can I chose a procedure such as frenulumplasty or circumcision first? or will I have to do stretching exercises? I highly doubt the exercises will work considering it broke before and I had to let it naturally health since I was to embarrassed to tell anyone... I need answers...

how long must I wait for a referral?
how do I ask for one?
and what will the specialist likely do first? exercises then surgury or can I chose surgury straight of the bat and pick which one I want and need??

I'm around 90 I sh lb's
Im on anti psychotic and anti depressants minor head injury in a past event and have attempted suicide and self injured. Doc I ain't so much concerned for my mental health right now. I'm more concerned about my manhood...

i recently had a circumcision at 43, i have had it done for certain partners are more agressive and grab foreskin so hard it tugs frenulum and a noticeable red vein appears which make eredtion painful and i have to abstain for several days until i heal then have to inform partner to touch me gentler...anyway my soft penis is rather small, but erect grows to 7.5 8 inches with a good amount of girth....at least i and my partners were happy. anyway i had circumcision and noticed immediately that underside of my skin below the head was stitched to the testicles...this is causing me difficulty getting erection, and when i do my testicles are all way up the underside of my shaft making penetration difficult, and also size is considerably smaller which is totally frustrating for both me and mygirlfriend...prior to circumcision my testicles were at bottom of my shaft allowing full penetration and also the enjoymeny of testices making contact with my girls butt....help me can this be taken care of? i want my normal size back and to be able to penetrate fully....help me!!

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....
