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.

A while back a tore my frenulum during intercourse, i have had sex since and it was sore but not as bad, the first time it happened (tore) i had a sharp pain but carried on only to notice what had happened when i saw a small amount of blood in the semen in the condom and there was no more blood only soreness, i can retract my foreskin fully but can be sore if i did it whilst erect, i can see no scarring but looks healed and the tear looks to have rejoined, help please as i am insecure in-case it happens again.

I have the condition hirsute penis while erect because I'm circumcised. I shave it off regularily (about every 2 days), but its getting annoying and shaving causes some itching and sometimes red bumps. Is there any other safe way of removing the hair from the shaft?

There are alot of very tiny pus filled white dots right beneath the head of my penis when then foreskin is pulled back. The skin there is red and a bit of mild pain is there while on intercourse. It doesn't bother or irritate me, but it is pretty freaky... it is ALOT of white dots. perhaps this could have something to do with it? Any medicine or cream?

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....
