Hi Welcome to Heathcare Magic

The swelling of the fore skin of the penis is due the retension of fluid during erected state.. it happens in some individual .... nothing to worry, it will subside by a day..

I masturbated last night, twice in fact, and this morning whilst urinating I noticed that my foreskin has swollen up completely overnight. This has never happened before, and quite frankly, I am scared sh*tless! I have no Idea why this has happened! I m paraniod that I may have been bitten, had an allergic reaction with something that I ve eaten or perhaps come into physical contact with. The Foreskin appears to have bloated up and is bulging over the head of the penis . It s rather freaky to tell the truth. Please reply soon. I don t want it to turn black and fall off!

above a month ago i started to have a itchy feeling over my forehead of my penis.I didn t care much about it that time and I used to masturbate frequently.one day i examined inside of foreskin and saw 3 small tiny dots and I ignored it and masturbated next morning it seemed to have aggravated and I have a strong itchy feeling.After 3 days or so the itchy feeling started to recede.I consulted a doctor (dermatologist). he said he will be treating me for blantitis and prescribed diflucan (150mg) 1 pill and ninazol (ketconazole) shampoo and asked me to apply over my foreskin. As I my forehead itch receded. I didn t took that pill but the next week end I got aroused and i had a slight itchy feeling and I examined my foreskin it seemed to be normal but i still can see that tiny dots but 4 or 5 in number. I kept examined my foreskin more frequently by stretching it and that action seemed to aggravated my itchy feeling again. I took that diflucan and applied that ninazol shampoo only once but it doesn t seemed effective. symptoms: 1.tiny dots in the inside of my foreskin 2.itchy feeling over my foreskin 3.white scaling over my forehead of penis 4.whenever i rub my penis the itchy feeling to aggravate. male : 27 years old

My penis is swollen from the foreskin after masturbation. This happened a while ago and it still has not returned to normal. It does not hurt and does not irritate me. I have been masturbating with it like this and it seemed to get better after I bust but then goes right back to being swollen. Any tips besides seeing a doctor?

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....
