    I'm 18 on Friday and have had a problem with my penis for ages. During puberty, my penis never grew. I developed quite early with pubes and hair. My penis is really small, it is so hard to pee. I do not think it is the micropenis condition as i'm not really overweight. I have another problem, when my penis is erect, it is quite sore. I have never been able to retract the foreskin. Only the tip is exposed when erect, when i am flaccid all there is is foreskin. The head is so sore and sensitive. I can't even wear a condom as it was too sore. I just touched it with my elbow slightly and it hurt for ages. I don't know what's wrong with me. It makes me feel not like a guy. Please help.

    It sounds like you could have an infection, but the glans is extremely sensitive on uncircumcised men so it may be ok - only a doctor can tell you for certain. I also had problems with a tight foreskin (phimosis) when I was a bit older than you. I eventually found the courage to visit my GP who referred me to a surgeon for circumcision. I think there are alternative remedies these days (it was a long time ago) such as steriod ointments for stretching the foreskin but I have read that the cure is only temporary - probably worth a try, though. In spite of this, I am very pleased to have been circumcised because it cured my problem once and for all - I only wish it had been done earlier. Mt penis looks and feels much better without a foreskin. Don't believe all the anti-circ bull you read on the web, and don't delay in getting this problem fixed - see your GP!!

    ye i had that problem so i went to the doctor. he sent me to the hospital to get a circumcision. the best thing to do really is to go to the doctor and get some help...

I am in my 70th year and following a Circumcision 12 months ago, I am still have serious problems, where the cut took place and the tip of the Penis is still very sore, in fact just where the cut took place it has bleed. My wife and I do not have intercourse anymore but once a week she tries to Masterbate me but this is very sore and has to stop. I have tried to use Fucidin Cream prescribed by the Dr. but this has not worked, I still get a normal erection and it is very frustating not to be able to proceed, my wife is very understanding and is quite upset for me, the Consultant that performed the procedure has examined me at least twice and tells me all is ok but because of the where the cut took place being very sore indeed, also the Penis head, even my underclothes make it difficult, what can I do

    Since you have already seen the two specialties of urology and dermatology and you aren't getting any better, then it sounds like you need ultra-specialized services, such as you might find in a university school of medicine, but not just any old university school of medicine. I would suggest that you research the various schools of medicine or research centers in your country and talk to specialists in these two fields to see which university school of medicine or research center is held in the highest esteem among colleagues.

    firstly i dont believe the 19 inches. even john holmes didnt manage that. secondly if its bleeding then you need to see a doctor.

    Hi. for the past year i have had a red, sore penis. i went to the doc and got some dark tarrin cream and the smegma went away. however the penis is still sore and red. i can pull down my forskin when fully erect however it is very tight and is imposible to have sex with out the frenalum bleeding. the forskin is also red and tender. i have just started bathing my penis with salt water. i am wundering why my penis is still red and sore after the cream??? is getting the frenulum (bow string) cut a simple procedure??? this might seem bad but is it ok to have sex with a condom even if your penis is red and sore???

    Go back to your doc. The first time talking to them is the most embarrassing so you're passed that. The foreskin tightness may not be related to the frenulum but yes, it sounds like your problem could likely be fixed by a simple quick surgery (if that is needed) You don't want to be hurting yourself so go get it checked but a condom and lubricant can be useful to reduce friction. Best to rest a little while first to let the little guy heal up.

    A few days ago I noticed my penis was sore and slightly itchy, pulled back my foreskin and all looked ok, just a tad red. A day later it was still sore so I pulled it back again and I noticed little red lumps all over the head on the penis. Also the skin below it is red and sore. The thing is, I had unprotected sex for about a minute before I put the condom on. All was fine the morning after, I then had a shower and I don't why but I sprayed antiperspirant down my boxers. I believe its that, that has irritated my penis. So I'm pretty sure I have Balanitis. Will an antiseptic cream such as TCP cure this or do I need something different/stronger?

    After having sex for the first time in a while whilst on holiday (multiple times/partners) my penis became sore ( I assumed over use/friction) I carried on having sex even tho it was very painful afterwards due to the soreness. At the end of the trip I couldn't even touch it. On my return I seemed to shed a layer of skin on the tip of my penis. Now (2 mnths later) my penis is still quite itchy and sore (especially after I have masterbated). I am pretty sure that I had protected sex on all occasions. To be honest, it feels like thrush but there is no build up of smegma and canisten doesn't seem to help. I have no discharge and nothing that especially resembles herpes and my penis is always kept clean. I have has some experience of std's over the years but nothing like this. Can you help explain my itchy red penis tip that won't go away?

    it could be. it depends what lube it was. if you're sure that he's been faithful then i think the best thing is to go back to your doctors and get some variety of hydrocortisone cream - that clears up most rashes.

    I have small red spots on the end of my penis, they are more distinct when my penis is erect. My penis comes really red(but not sore) after sexual intercourse. My girlfriend says its just friction causing it, but im not sure. There is no burning sensation and its not ichy. I also have a clear discharge from the penis usually once i have had an erection and havn't ejaculated. Could this be thrush or something worse?

    I am a 23 year old male and i contracted thrush from my partner over a year ago which resulted in the tip of my penis becoming sore and red and 'dry' skin (i say this in inverted commas as the skin looked but wasn't dry but moist), which i could rub off in the shower. The 'dry' skin cleared after a course of hydrocortisan cream but the tip of my penis stayed sore and red which affects my sex life as i now ejaculate prematurely and also find it difficult to keep an erection. If anyone knows of anything that could help please post a rely. Thanx..
