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! ...Read more

Here are some...: Clinically, you have long-tight foreskin, that is, phimosis, for which circumcision is a long-term of choice. To decide if it is necessary, see a urologist by following suggestions in articles listed in How to Handle Sickness in http://formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html. Best wish to health... ...Read more

Cracked and sore foreskin. How do I treat these symptoms?

If uncomfortable: Your foreskin is probably too tight when retracted to the extent that it cracks. A tight foreskin is called phimosis and in adults is best managed surgically. A phimotic foreskin can certainly tear if retracted with force. Prescription strength steroid cream can be tried if you want to avoid surgery. ...Read more

Foreskin can be retracted over the glans of erect penis (7.5"), however it's uncomfortable & sex is more pleasurable when I do not. Should i? Why/not?

Your choice: If someone has told you that you should retract your foreskin over your glans for sex, i'd ask "why?" i'm not aware of any reason to think this is something you'd want to do. I've asked for consults from the urology team. ...Read more

I am uncircumcised. My foreskin towards the top is dry and cracked. I have been using bar soap lately. Can this be the reason? Should I use lotion

I am uncircumcised. My foreskin towards the top is dry and cracked.  I have been using bar soap lately.   Can this be the reason?  Should I use lotion

Do U have phimosis?: You should be able to use soap if your foreskin is nice & loose & retracts easily. Most common cause for foreskin to crack is because it is tight (phimosis) causing you to develop small splits in it. Unfortunately these splits/cracks tend to scar & circumcision becomes necessary because steroid cream can not loosen a scarred phimotic foreskin. Suggest you see a urologist if problem continues. ...Read more

Phimosis: This sounds like "phimosis" which is the development of scar tissue on the foreskin of uncircumcised men. It cracks and can bleed when attempts are made to retract the foreskin. Treatment involves keeping the area clean and dry, topical steroid cream, and if severe or progressive scarring is present, circumcision. A physician should examine you to establish the diagnosis. ...Read more

Cracked foreskin skin red spots on penis. Whats the best and worst possibilites and solutions?

Penile eruption: The best possibility is that this is an allergic reaction to clothing or a condom or some vaginal cream contacted during intercourse. The worst is that this is malignant and needs amputation. Neither is reasonable and as recommended earlier needs to be seen to be diagnosed and recommended for treatment. ...Read more

After intercourse, i found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, i would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma. ...Read more

My back cracks all the time and it doesn't hurt or feel uncomfortable in any way, in fact I feel better afterwards but i'm worried I might be overdoing it. Is this a good or a bad thing to do?

Dr. can check if ok: Cracking a joint moves the parts of the joint, with the cracking noise coming from cartilage surfaces sliding, from movement of a little air-space from one place in the joint to another, or from some other non-traumatic event. A person with no joint pains before or after cracking a joint is probably not damaging the joint. However, a doctor can check to see how usual or unusual one's cracking is. ...Read more
