Here are some ...: Without a direct look at glans penis, It's hard to offer an accurate Dx for effective Rx. But, clinically, long tight foreskin is still the most common underlying culprit leading to fungal / bacterial infection, which may be temporarily treated with applying topical antigungal - steroid cream 1-2 times lightly daily after gentle cleansing for 3-4 days & see. If not getting better, see Doc timely. ...Read more

I have a male friend who has a glans penis and i noticed that he don't seem interested in sex, could that be the problem?

Please rephrase?: The glans penis is the most distal portion of the phallus, it is the so called "head of the penis", thus most men that have a normal penis will have it. You may be referring to something else, please re-ask your question. Irrespective, " interest" in sex involves a lot more than anatomy. ...Read more

Hi.I am having red inflamed glans penis.1 mm sized 2-3  dots on frenulum.No other problem.When touched it feels discomfortable.

Penis is red : Hi without seeing this directly the most common diagnosis i see with my patients having the same symptoms is that this is either a staph or a strep bacterial infection. It is most likely not an std. But, in most cases it will require antibiotics. So, please go see your trusted medical advisor today or soon. ...Read more

Is it normal to experience dry skin on the glans of the penis either from friction or use of soaps? What are some suggestions to remedy the problem?

Reduce irritation: Sounds like your body is trying to tell you something. Avoid friction and minimize use of soap. This is a sensitive area, and it's not a particularly dirty area either, so it doesn't need much washing. Avoid irritating the area and it will likely get better. ...Read more
