Me and my boyfriend have been in a monogamous relationship for 8 months. Occasionally when we have sex he has troble with the foreskin of his uncircumcised penis... he gets small cuts (very tiny) right at the edge of the foreskin he says or take 4 to 5 days for it to heal. After sex the foreskin is over the head but red and very inflamed nothing else is effected just the skin. We recently went and purchased some lubricant and he says that helps it to not hurt during but continues to complain afterwards I don't know whats going in and get won't ask because hes embarrassed that hes uncircumcised any help or advice is very much appreciated
It looks like your boyfriend has chafing skin due to friction rub during intercourse. First of all indulge in plenty of foreplay or use water based lubricants. If the rashes appear, then he can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Also wear cotton undergarments. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful.If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thank you so much for replying. We haven't had sex in a week due to I'm scared to bring the inflammation back. We use a KY.. a lot. But he still complains on the one time we forget to use it. I have never been with anyone that isn't circumcised. I'm starting to feel bad about hurting him every time we get intimate. He won't talk to anyone because he feel embarrassed about being "un-cut" even though I tell him its nothing. Are tiny cuts normal with friction?
