What could be the underlying illness of cuts on my foreskin?

Balanitis?: It may be that your foreskin is just too tight; but it could also be balanitis, a skin condition affecting the head of the penis. This is not necessarily a sexually transmitted disease.

If the problem persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

Balanitis?: It sounds like you have balanitis, the medical term for inflammation of the head of the penis and the foreskin, especially if in addition to "cuts" there is redness, whitish patches, or odor. It might be "nonspecific"; or possibly a yeast or bacterial infection. See a doctor. Once healed, prevention is usually just normal hygiene, i.e. retract foreskin and wash once or twice daily. ...Read more

I'm using Daktarin for cuts on my foreskin but I have many scars and the cuts heal slowly or not at all. How do I heal them both without circumcision?

? Prepucioplasty: Foreskin keeps splitting because you have a degree of phimosis (it's too tight to retract easily) Now unlikely to respond to steroid cream due to scarring. Next most effective treatment would be prepucioplasty. Vertical incision is made thu constricting area on upper surface & sutured transversely. Skin will now be loose & retract easily & avoid further splits once it has healed. ...Read more

Phimosis: Your husband probably needs to be circumcised. Those "cuts" will eventually be replaced by scar tissue and he won't be able to retract the foreskin.

I have a cut in the tip of my penis foreskin and is swollen?

Probably a split: Doubt you actually have a "cut".

Worth using some antibiotic ointment such as bacitracin, neomycin etc. Need to see dr. If swelling extends down penis which could signify cellulitis needing antibiotics. See urologist if you have phimosis. ...Read more

Need circumcision...: Up to this degree of having such trouble with long tight foreskin, you need circumcision as its definitive long-term care. Further topical care with wait and see would not help.

See below: Phimosis in general means that the foreskin cannot retract to expose the head of the penis. If symptoms are present, it is usually pain with retraction or manipulation of the prepuce, sometimes with bleeding or cracking/fissuring of the penile skin. Circumcision will cure this problem. Topical steroid creams can also work well. ...Read more

Red mottled blotches on tip of penis, and small cuts on foreskin. What could this be? Only one sexual partner.

Red mottled blotches on tip of penis, and small cuts on foreskin. What could this be? Only one sexual partner.

Balanitis: If you are uncircumcised, probably balanitis -- i.e. inflammation of the head of the penis. Most balanitis is due to yeast, perhaps especially if your partner is female and carrying yeast in her vagina; or "nonspecific" balanitis, which often clears with increased hygiene, i.e. soap & water twice daily. See a doctor if that doesn't clear it up within a few days. ...Read more
