Re: little cuts...

It could be a yeast infection. You both need to be treated with a cream. She could have it not from sexual contact with no symptoms. It's nothing much to worry about but it can cause this sort of problem. There are other possible causes though.

Re: little cuts...

Re: little cuts...

anything over the counter for womens' yeast will work on a man.
yeast is far and away the most common cause of the small cuts.

Re: little cuts...

I didnt know that men could be treated for yeast infections. Can it be passed back and forth between partner's? Are you sure it isnt an STD? I have heard that herpe's can start with noticing little cuts or a scrape of some sort?????

Re: little cuts...

yeast infections can be passed from female to male, and male to female. circumcision status makes no difference, either.

Re: little cuts...

Just in case it's not yeast, please know that herpes can also manifest in the form of "little cuts". Not to freak you out, but it's another possiblility. A vast number of people with herpes get these and other "atypical" symptoms instead of the textbook blister and sores.

Re: little cuts...

well... i can rule out herpes. I was and am the only person my current gf has been with. we have been with each other for nearly 2 years. i haven't cheated on her. she hasn't cheated on me. so i'm sure it will prolly be the yeast infection. thanks.

Re: little cuts...

If she shaves the pubic area maybe the sharp hair is cutting you when she needs another shave.

Re: little cuts...

I would like that thank everybody for their input on this. I believe i know what the problem was. My girlfriend shaves, however the times i noticed the cuts she hadn't shaven for a little while. her hair was longer and it was pokey. one of the last replies to this made me open my eyes to this as a possibility. Me and my girlfriend had sex on friday and i had no cuts afterwards or even today. she was shaven nice and clean. so this is why i believe that i had cuts down there. Thanks again.
