Brief Answer: Seems to be candidial infection. Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for sharing your problem with us. The most likely reason for such recurrent painful cracks involving foreskin is candidial infection. This condition is treated by : 1. Clotrimazole containing cream locally 2. Washing daily with soap and water, followed by drying. Condoms should be used during intercourse.
