I am 25 years old man I have been suffering with sexual weakness and erectile dysfunction for almost 2 years , in the beginning it was just about seminal emission after urination. But now I feel severe pain in my stomach during and after erection, I also feel pain in the areas surrounding my genitals organs and premium during erection and after ejaculation … I don’t ejaculate too much and it takes me days or week to recover from the weakness caused by the ejaculation. In the past I used to masturbate a lot, but I have almost stopped it now and mostly do it once a week but I feel extremely weak after ejaculation as I mentioned earlier and it takes me week to recover. I have been to different doctors who have run tests on me and they say that I have no infection of any kind and it’s just weakness. My hairs have got thinner due to this condition and my whole facial look has changed as I am aging prematurely. Can you tell me what’s wrong with me ?? Please help me I am in great deal of trouble

On the frenulum of my penis I get tears after any sort of masturbation or friction. I am circumcised but it bleeds a very little bit. It usually heals within one or two days but I am a guy and don’t want to wait for it to heal to do stuff and when I finally do it again it tears again. Sometimes it is dried and starts to be flaky and sometimes it is moist and I can use my fingers to rub the upper level of skin off. Lately It rips just from an erection. I don’t even have to use the erection. SYMPTOMS: •     Tearing and ripping cuts in my frenulum •     Scarring •     Flaking skin •     Moist, soft, soggy skin, clammy •     Light bleeding •     Looks like road rash but not infected •     No pain •     Swelling in certain areas, raised like poison ivy looking bumps COMMON EXPLAINATIONS: •     FRENULUM BREVE: I am circumcised already and I am 29 and this problem has only been going on for 4 months. •     STDs: I have been tested before and after my current relationship and came out clean. •     FORE SKIN: I am circumcised. •     YEAST INFECTION: It is possible that my girlfriend did have a yeast infection and passed it on. •     FRICTION: It tears a little occasionally during sex but I have not had sex in months since I am in Iraq. I do masturbate but when it is bad I stop and when it is very minor I try not to even touch the spot. But no matter how light my touch is, it still creates cuts. •     BACTERIA: Unknown. •     JOCK ITCH: I don’t have any of the symptoms of jock itch except the skin becomes soft and moist occasionally. •     ROUGH SEX: I am not having sex right now. •     PROMISCUOUS BEHAVIOR: I have been in a faithful relationship for 9 months. She has also been faithful and the issue got worse after we separated. Before that it was over a year since my last sexual experience. •     SIGNIFICANT OTHERS POSSIBLE SEXUAL DISEASES: My girlfriend has only been with one other man, only once before me. There is a chance he could have been infected, but she shows no signs of any sort of disease and she would have had it before me. •     FINGER NAIL TEARS: I am careful not to use nails or dig in. •     SKIN OVER THE HEAD OF PENIS: This does happen sometimes like when I sit but not often or long enough to cause this effect. •     ENVIROMENTAL: My work place uses Port – 0 – john toilets and I know they have a ton of bacteria in them and sometimes my penis rubs the edge of the seat. The area mostly infected is the area that touches the front of the toilet seat. •     BALANOPOSTHITIS: •     MONILIASIS: •     PHIMOSIS: REMEDIES USED SO FAR: •     Jock itch spray •     Athletes foot spray •     Hydrogen peroxide •     Neosporin •     Baby powder •     Hydrocortisone cream •     Abstinence •     Air dry •     Clean with soap and water OTHER NON RELATED MEDICAL ISSUES: •     Asthma •     High blood pressure •     Liver disease, possibly Wilsons disease •     Foot pain with nodules •     Bacteria in an infected toe nail on my right big toe •     Overweight

I am 55 years old and never had this problem until a year ago. I have seen 2 Urologist and they both say I do not see anything wrong I told them that my penis skin on shaft tears when getting and erection and sometimes it feels like it is over filling with blood. Like you blow up a balloon to normal then overfull it and it tears and takes about 3 days to stop hurting. I also notice that sometimes I will get this ring of tight skin that forms like a collar around the shaft near the rim of the penis and it hurts extremely to try to roll the skin down and most of the time it will not move but the pain is intense. At one time it would have red bumps on the rim on one side and felt like the erection was crooked and leaning to one side and over hard if that is possible. My regular doctor increased my blood pressure Medicine to see if lower my blood pressure would help. Not a chance. I can not find out what is causing the problem. It only does it when and erection occurs. I am circumcised but it also feels like after and erection is achieved there is no skin movement, for example if you try to masturbate and pull the skin back and forth there is none or very little movement and the rim gets very tight and hurts but the tearing is near the base and midway up the shaft. Someone please help because even when having a dream and getting and erection while I sleep I pay for that for 3 days of pure pain.

Doctor 1 - Three Months ago:
Thinks it is a bacterial infection and treated with antibacterials, Symtoms disappeared. By then then the growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin was not there but other symptoms described were there.

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

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....
