Uncircumcised, frenulum rips, healing, neosporin. Can have sex?

Hi, I m a 20 year old male, who is sexually active, and I am uncircumcised. I have noticed that when I try having sex, My frenulum always rips and this has been the second time it has happened. I need to know why this is happening. It is currently still healing , it kinda looks like a little whole, or skin was ripped out and is slowing healing. Should I go to the doctor? I have been washing it, putting neosporin on it. any suggestions on how to heal it faster? and also, how can i have sex without it ripping?

You have what is called a frenular tear. If its a complete tear, bleeding is likely to be severe. What you are experiencing is possibly a partial tear, which heals slowly though.

Prevention- Use lubricants OR oil, to be smeared over the penis just before insertion, try more foreplay so that lubrication is better before u can do the actual act.

Permanent solution- circumcision.

All the best.
