Sore, itchy, penis with white gunk especially in the mornings

For a few weeks now, I have had an ongoing painful problem with my penis. I haven't had any sexual intercourse for about 6 months or more now, and this problem just started out of the blue. I have been having a very itchy sensation on the top and around the head of my penis, it has also got little cut like slices on the foreskin and when I urinate, I have to sit down on the loo, as I can't pull the foreskin back correctly as it becomes so painful and sometimes the cuts bleed. I'm am so worried to go and see my doctor about this as it is highly embassaring. I'm also feeling depressed through this ongoing problem.

does anyone know what this could be? and maybe give me some advice on what I should do next?


Thanks

Could be yeast infection. Happens sometimes to men, especially uncircumcised ones. Go to your doc, if that's the problem he should have a cream or something to clear it up quickly.

Then go home and wash all your shorts in hot water, so you don't get it back.

you need to go to the doctor. The doctor has seen it all.

I am presently getting over a case of yeast infection and you are describing the same symptoms.
the doctor gave me an antibiotic and a tube of salve that I apply to my foreskin and glans three times daily.
I saw the doctor yesterday and it's almost cleared up but he told me to continue using the salve for another week. Hope this helps you, go for it!!

circumcised men get yeast infections, too, and in about the same percentages as uncircumcised men.
I agree, it has the classic signs of a yeast infection...especially the tearing.

Re: Sore, itchy, penis with white gunk especially in the mornings

If this is not treated properly you could end up with scarring on the foreskin that will prevent your foreskin being retracted and then surgery might be the only option, so get down the doctors. They will have seen this many times and are used to dealing with "embarrassing" problems so worry more about your penis and less about going to the doctor!
