Hello Kapil,

Most adult videos which are made by commercial adult video makers use a lot of organ enhancement methods, which are most of the time unrealistic. Hence you need not worry too much about what you see and feel inadequate.

The normal prepuce ( skin like covering of the glans penis), is usually mobile and can be pulled back to varying extent. In case, you are not able to retract the prepuce even to a little extent or it results in pain, or discomfort , you may be having a condition called PHIMOSIS. This is a very benign condition and may be treated with a minor surgical procedure called circumcision, where a small incision is made in the prepuce, increasing its mobility.

You might consult a urologist or a general surgeon, who might examine you and guide you accordingly.

Hey Kapil.What you see in videos is post circumcision.Hindus do not have this culture so you may be tempted to think that you are abnormal.In case your problem persists, you will need a minor surgery and you will be discharged within one hour from the hospital after circumcision.

Hi doctor, My name is Satyanarayana and I m 28 years old...Recently, I have participated in sex with a girl who washed my penis before sex and at that time she pulled my foreskin backwards.... I have never tried to pull my foreskin backwards in the past, so this is my first incident. I got a little bit of pain and after wearing the condom I have completed my sex... The main thing is after sexual participation my penis erect came back to normal, but my foreskin was folded like a thick ring at the tip.. the ringed foreskin is not going upwards or downwards... It is also very sensitive to touch both the skin and the tip. The foreskin and tip are both became red. What is the next step to do. Should I consult the doctor? please do the needful as I m mentally disturbed about this situation and unable to tell anyone. Please reply me as soon as possible. Regards, Satyanarayana

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.

Starts with irritation at the penis foreskin for about 3-4days then 3 or 4 rush-like swellings (3-mm wide about 3mm apart) show in a group (in a line). After a about 2 days they become woulds so painful lasting over one week. I also have a growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin.

Seen Doctors:
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.

Doctor 2: 3 weeks ago:
Thinks I have genital ulcers with herpes + Warts and gave me viral treatment. The wounds healed but I fealing the symptoms for irritation at the penis foreskin starting again (6days now). The penis and area around it now also itches.

My partner was also treated in both cases.

What should I do next?

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....
