Question Sensitive skin below the head of the penis?

Ok.. I have this red spot on the side of the head of the penis. I am circumcised and it is right below the head in that area. It is really red and sensitive at times. When I have a lot of contact with the area it makes it more sensitive. Other times it just goes away. I had a urologist and dermatologist look at it they said that is normal. I got my std tests and they all came back negative so I conclude that it probably not std. Is it from being circumcised? What could I put on it to maybe heal it or make it not as sensitive?

Re: Sensitive skin below the head of the penis?

Was your circumcision done recently and is the spot near or part of the scar? A friend of mine (and no, it is not me ) was circumcised at age 10 and one of the sutures never completely dissolved. He was well into his thirties and this spot within his circumcision scar would occasionally become red and itchy. He said it always looked like there was some hard pus in it. Eventually, on one occasion when it was particularly inflamed, he squeezed the hell out of it and this stuff the consistancy of toothpaste came out! That was the end of his problem.

It is odd that his doctor also told him it was normal, but clearly it was not. Does this sound at all similar? Your description reminded me of my friend's story so I thought I would suggest it as a possibility.

Hope this helps.
