If this is persistent, get seen and find out if there is an allergic reaction, infection or other issue. Poison oak and ivy are common to get on the penis.

When my penis is in normal size foreskin is easily pulldown but when penis enlarges foreskin becomes tight?

When my penis is in normal size foreskin is easily pulldown but when penis enlarges foreskin becomes tight?

It's normal.: The foreskin on an uncircumcised male typically covers the head of the penis when there is no erection. With an erection the penis grows in length and girth, and the foreskin "retracts" and gets tight, covering only the base of the penis and leaving the head uncovered. You're okay, that's the design plan! ...Read more

Underside of penis gets red and irritated after masterbation? Std?

Underside of penis gets red and irritated after masterbation? Std?

Not unless hand: Is infected. Force of stimulation, lack of lubrication, 'friction-burn' all more likely. If you were to repeat the action you use on your penis to your arm, you would likely see a less severe, but similar result--simple friction. The tissues of the penis are very sensitive (but you already know that!) and loaded with small blood vessels that can be injured when abused. ...Read more

Cant retract foreskin with erect penis although it can be done when flaccid, So can I first retract my foreskin and then make the penis erect ?

Yes, you may...: yes, you may try, but there is still no guaranty that the whole glans penis will be fully exposed if the length of foreskin is longer than erected penis can expose. However, the opening of foreskin is small enough to become a tight constricting ring, which may potentially develop a so-called paraphimosis; so, if occurring, always pull the foreskin down to return its shape at flaccidity so to avoid ...Read more

Head of penis constantly moist. Painful when touched below head ie under foreskin.

Balanitis: The most important thing is to be sure no urine incubates under the foreskin. Keep the skin back when you pass urine, blot or wash when you are through. Wash daily under the skin, preferably in the shower. Castellani solution (phenol) is excellent for this. OTC miconazole may help. Circumcision is a cure and is easy to do.The older you are, the more you tend to leak a little urine which stays unde ...Read more

Is it normal for penis foreskin when pulled back while dry humping with erection to be very sensitive and painful?

May need reduction: If the foreskin of an uncircumcised penis gets pulled back and cannot be reduced (meaning returned to its normal position covering the head of the penis), this can be a problem. Often the foreskin will swell and not be reducible. This is called a paraphimosis. If this is the case, and you cannot reduce it with gentle pressure, you may want to be evaluated by your physician who can do so. ...Read more

No, but just...: What described strongly suggested tight long foreskin is the culprit to cause the problem you have now. Short-term solution is good topical hygiene; long-term, circumcision. Either way will not affect your sex life but recurrent local discomfort. So, see and talk with urologist, and you decide what is reasonable for you. Best wish... ...Read more

My b.F has got his foreskin attached to his penis head. Can condom help to go for intercourse. Is circumcision only the option? Its painful

No/maybe: A condom is unlikely to help, since the traction/stretch caused by the erect penis triggers pain. He should visit with a urologist who can evaluate the specific attachment. A circumcision would be a possible solution but there may be a more limited procedure that would sole the problem. ...Read more

Sometimes, they may just diagnose based on exam. Treatment is available and effective for this, but herpes is not curable. Bottom line: go be evaluated. ...Read more
