I have cracks on my foreskin, 2 cm long and on the top side, along the axis of the penis. The cracks appeared this morning and I could see blood inside, though it is not bleeding. At the same time, also noticed some reddish rashes on the head of the penis. the cracks are painful when I tried to retract the skin. I had to stand in the shower for some time to make the foreskin well moisted before I could pull it back.
I had in the past had these rashes on the head of the penis and I used a cream with ingredients: Beclomethasone Dipropionate, Clotrimazole and Neomycin. After applying for 2-3 days, the rashes would disappear and it will reappear after a month or so. this has been happening for the past 4 months. I am married and I never have sex with any one other than my wife and my wife also have sex only with me.
Can you please suggest what is wrong and what should be done to solve this cracked foreskin and rashes
Such cracks on the penis skin can be due to dry skin, chafing skin, psoriasis or eczema. Use mild soaps like Dove and 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. If it is eczema, then emollients and topical steroids are needed.
