A 28-year-old member asked:

I keep getting dry, cracks on the foreskin what could cause this? It gets very uncomfortable.

Get checked out.: With any cracking or fissuring we worry about things like fungal infections. Sometimes people with sensitive skin or mild eczema can get dry, cracking skin on the foreskin too. I'd see your family doctor - they'll most likely try a topical antifungal cream or other emollient. If you're sexually active, it'd also be a good time to get a std screening test. Cheers!

A 37-year-old member asked:

I am seventeen and still have my foreskin. Can it stop the growth of the organ?

No: The penis, under homonal stimulation will continue to grow. The foreskin is very elastic & will accommodate penile growth. The foreskin could be come tight with erections & cause some discomfort & may not be easily retractable or retractable at all. Should you have a prblem with the foreskin, see your pcp or see a urologist and discuss this. The foreskin is normal, but you may need some help.
A 20-year-old member asked:

How do I know if my foreskin is too small? Can it burst?

If uncomfortable: Your foreskin is only too small if it is tight when retracted to the extent that it is painful or uncomfortable. A tight foreskin is called phimosis and in adults is best managed surgically. A phimotic foreskin can certainly tear if retracted with force. Steroid cream can be tried in prepubertal boys. A short foreskin by itself is no problem provided it's loose.

What causes loss of sensitivity in the foreskin ?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Moez Khorsandi
Urology 27 years experience
Several causes: There are many causes that lead to problems with the foreskin such as diabetes, traumatic retraction of the foreskin, frequent infections, and sexual activity. This is generally not treatable but poses no significant medical problem. If problems with the foreskin, a circumcision will be required.
