hi
in erectile stage if u feel no pain and it easily slide over head of penis-glans then its normal and u need not to worry.
but if u feel pain every time and frenulum become tight ,then u need to consult surgeon.
use lubricant jelly during sex or masturbation to avoid trauma .
circumcision if u need is very minor operation and will cure ur problem for life time.
it can done at any time

Can I lead a normal healthy life&have a good sex life after marriage with tight foreskin problem(Phimosis)? I am 28 years old and I have a tight foreskin problem (Phimosis) of the penis. I cannot pull back my foreskin totally to reveal the head of the penis even during complete erection. I have seen the foreskin roll down completely in **** movies, but its just not possible for me to do the same even during complete erection. Moreover, the head of my penis (under the foreskin) is very very sensitive, so I am scared to pull it back completely. I am planning to get married soon, so I am even more worried now that it will affect my sex life after marriage. Is this normal for guys my age? Will I be able to lead a normal and healthy life without any complications with this problem?

Hello sir I am a 29 year old male. I got recently married and having a healthy sexual life. Two weeks back, I was not able to retract my foreskin. I tried it forcefully and it was very painful. White colour discharge was there under the fore skin. The condition did not resolve and I approached a general physician, who said that I am suffering with phimosis and he has given soframycin cream and phexin as medication. It s around three weeks now. If I wash my penis and slowly retract the skin back there are no issues but when it gets erect it s really painful. The foreskin is very dry and if I try to pull it back, inflammation occurs causing irritation and pain. Please help

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....
