Lesions on foreskin, no discharge, tight foreskin. What is this?

Hello- Doctor
I am in a relationship with a man that is uncircumsized. He, since I began dating him, has complained that the foreskin is too tight. As time passed he began to get lesions in the very tip of the "hood" . I asked him what this could be. He thinks that it is that his skin is too tight and that in pulling it the skin is sensative and split. They are 4 identical slits on the tip of the gathered skin right where it is too tight for him to pull back. He goes through this daily. There is no discharge and there are no odors or sores or any symptoms other than the leisions that re-open every time he pulls back. I can't imagine what this could be. I ask him to go to the Dr and he says that they are going to circumsize him. That they have no other recourse. I gues what i am trying to ask is that is this normal? I cant seem to get literature on it.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern. I am glad you bring this up in a public forum. What you have is secretions from glands surrounding the glans of your penis. I hope you have good sexual hygiene and clean your genital area by pulling the foreskin back everyday. This should prevent any balanitis which is infection and inflammation of the skin surrounding the foreskin and prevent the bad odor as well. You may also have phimosis which might be the reason you are having pain when the head of your penis is not covered by prepuce. I hope you consult a surgeon for possible surgery. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
