What causes sharp pain at the tip of penis?

default
Posted on Tue, 13 Oct 2015
Question: I am experiencing a slight steady pain in the tip area of my penis. No sores or discharge, no outside the house sexual activity, but a lot of masturbation. It almost feels the opening of at the head of the penis has been stretched and is just sore.

Brief Answer:
penile hygiene is essential.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i can understand your concern.
I should assure you ,there's nothing to worry about.
If you're applying Neosporin ointment occasionally, it's alright.
Don't keep applying it daily.
Maintain good penile hygiene.
Avoid moisture over the tip, especially after urinating.
If pain is more, avoid masturbation for few days.
Instead exercise in other ways, like brisk walks,cycling,or music,reading, etc.
Enjoy life while in good health.

Brief Answer:
masturbation and kidney stone not related.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
Kidney stone doesn't develop just like that, neither related to masturbation.
Three days isn't a long time.
Try to avoid masturbation for few days. It resolves very fast.
