Unhappy Sore, swollen, red foreskin and penis head.

So, i woke up this morning and i noticed that when i grabbed my penis that it hurt, i got up and pulled back the foreskin to see what was wrong, there was a white substance covering the head (it wasn't sperm) so i wiped it off.

After a shower i checked it again because it still hurt and its all red and sore, both foreskin and head, except the very tip of the head for some reason, and the foreskin is pretty swollen. The last time i had sex was about a month ago with my virgin ex. I'm only 16. Should I go see a doctor, wait and see what happens, or is there something i can do without anyone finding out?

Re: Sore, swollen, red foreskin and penis head.

It sounds like it might be a yeast infection. This can cause the head to peel, producing the white skin you've been seeing, and redness, dryness, and soreness.
A yeast infection can be cured, with anything over the counter, for yeast, for women. In the US, monistat, vagisil, etc. In Europe, canesten.

Let us know how it goes. For every one who posts, there are many with the same thing, who don't.
Good luck.

Re: Sore, swollen, red foreskin and penis head.

My wife constantly has yeast infections and passes them onto me. I get the same symptoms as the OP and use a yeast infection topical as mentioned and it usually clears up within 3-4 days
