If its it typical: Dryness and not some underlying skin disorder or sexually transmitted disease it is not a major concern. Hydrate well and use a body lotion once or twice a day to the area. Good luck.

A 26-year-old female asked:

What can cause the skin to rip in the penis?

Force: Obviously, any type of force, like severe forceful sex, can cause skin trauma. Activities like "dry humping" would increase the risk of cuts/abrasions too. Sometimes, the skin just gets dry itself and lacerations can occur as well. If any discharge, no non healing areas, than see a dr. For an evaluation of the area, best wishes.
