lacerations on penis

Hi, we are at our wits end now!!.. my boyfriend of 2 years keeps getting lacerations after sex.Its on the top of his penis all around like paper cuts which irritate him, i have been to a GUM clinic twice to be checked, but everything has come back clear...he is not circumcised, never had problems before with any partners , just with me, he has noticed that im `ribbed` inside, would that make any difference?, he has to keep on using creams to sooth things, itsmaking us both iserable now and we just want to enjoy sex.. what could the matter be???

Did you find anything to help?  My boyfriend got a laceration on his penis after having sex with me 4 months ago.  He says he thinks it's from where I shaved -- leaving a little stubble for him to cut himself on.  Anyway, he's tried everything, but the cut won't heal.  He's been to an MD and a urologist.  They've told him to try neosporin, bacatracin, vaseline, etc.  Nothing helps.  We're so frustrated.  Has anything worked for you guys?

Hi,

This could be balanitis. Balanitis is inflammation of the glans (glands) penis. When the foreskin (or prepuce) is also affected, it is termed balanoposthitis.

Inflammation has many possible causes, including irritation by environmental substances, physical trauma, and infection by a wide variety of pathogens, including bacteria, virus, or fungus—each of which require a particular treatment.

Retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. Apply bacitracin  if bacterial infection is suspected.
Apply topical clotrimazole for adult men with probable candidal balanitis.

If the symptoms persist, you would need to consult your doctor.

Let us know if you need any other information.

Regards.
