Yesterday when I woke up I felt this weird feeling near the top of my penis. Later that day it really started to frustrate me so I went to the bathroom to check what was going on, and I saw that the top of my foreskin (I'm uncut) is swollen. I pulled the foreskin down a bit and saw that it was red and swollen from the inside. Before going to bed I rubbed the tip with this antibiotic ointment hoping that it will get better in the morning, but it didn't. Today it's still swollen, but now it has this mixture of a burning/stinging/itching sensation from time to time. In the shower I pulled the foreskin all the way down and saw that there was quite a bit of stegma down there. Could that be the cause? I washed it clean, but the foreskin is still red and swollen from the inside, the tip is also red and more sensitive. Also the part where the foreskin and the head of the penis kinda connect, is really sensitive to touching. It's also swollen and red.
I really don't know what to do, I hope you can help me
Sounds like your problem is from the smegma building up under the foreskin.
Do you have any diaper rash cream in your area stores? That should work. If not the diaper rash cream, use some corn starch for babies, on the baby isle in your super market. Any corn starch will due. Apply it, or the cream over and around the infected/sore area once a day. Be sure and pull back foreskin daily and clean when you shower, applying the corn starch or diaper rash cream. There are other medicines you can use, but these two that I mentioned doesn't cost very much, and you can purchase them any where.
It will take a little while for the swelling to go down, but your problem should go away with better cleaning/hygene.
The foreskin kinda went back to normal, though there's a bit left but it's a lot better. But now I have this really itchy/stinging feeling in the upper half of the tip almost all the time. Is there a way to make it go away?
I've tried the baby rash cream and it worked so well!! Just after like 4 hours the redness is going away, the itching/burning stopped, the swelling is going away, it worked, thanks so much!
Umm.. Just this one thing. I don't know if this is normal, and I don't know if it has anything to do with the minor swelling, but: I can pull back my foreskin to just bellow the tip, I mean the foreskin stops right bellow the tip. If I try to pull it back more, well it hurts, and also doesn't really that far. Is this normal?
im going through the same thing... its been a week and its still the same. I clean it everyday and its starting to scare me. I did have unprotected sex with my girlfriend like 2 weeks ago and was fine until my head was all extra sensitive. i thought noting of it that night and went to bed. the next day my foreskin was so swollen that i couldnt peel it half way down
today i pulled the skin all the way down and had a bunch of stegma. cleaned it up and now it feels better. still swollen and my head is very sensitive still
also when i pulled my skin back while swollen. i got som "rips" on my foreskin that hurt like hell
gonna have to take a trip to the doctor to get some of that ointment you guys are talking about
swelling and tears are gone. still have an overly sensitive penis head though. also noticed my head is like "shedding" some skin.... it washes off on some spots only.... what can i use to fix this? LMK ASAP
What about supplementing the monostat regime with giving a boost to the good bacterias in your system. I've been reading up about probiotics and it would seem that yeast infections signal an imbalance in the "microflora" in your body. Acidophilus supplements, reducing the refined sugars and processed foods, cutting out alcohol, increasing your fibre intake, etc. all seem to be diet recommendations to combat rampant yeast.
