Foreskin Sore Vein
I have a tight foreskin, there is a white bump on foreskin size of a coin, not sore. I masterbate and can also feel veins? Penis blue
Not sure: This is tough. A non painful white bump without tenderness and a purple, non paiful penis. Infection, if u are not having sex is low probabily. Could it be trauma with a blister from overuse? I guess it depends on what ur looking at. If its really purple and a big white coin sized bump is looking back at you, it can't be good. If not from personal overuse, I would go in and get checked out. ...Read more

I pulled back my 2 year olds foreskin back to clean in side and noticed it's very purple and it seems to be sore to him as he was crying and riggling?
See answer : A purplish discoloration to uncircumcised penis is quite normal. Often, within the first 3-4 years, you may notice an accumulation of a whitish, cheesy-like substance around the base of the head of the penis (coronal margin) which may also be associated with some redness. This is the body's normal response to help separate the adherent inner foreskin from the coronal margin. Continue good hygiene. ...Read more

Foreskin is red all the time but after masterbation it gets even more red and sore, uncircumcised.?
Lubricate: Retract the foreskin and wash the area with a mild soap a few times a day. When masterbating use enough lubrication.

If needed see the doctor. ...Read more
