Tears in end of foreskin - very painful

I have small tears all around the end of my foreskin that are incredibly painful when the skin is pulled back to urinate or wash.

I have recently begun a course of antibiotics for a completely unrelated skin issue and wonder if they could have caused this as a side effect.

I have stopped taking the antibiotics but this has had no efect to date. The problem is getting worse and I cannot see my doctor for 4 days.

Ant ideas.

Cheers

Ged

ANTIBIOTICS absolutley can cause this. Its called balanitis. Probably caused by yeast/fungal infection
