I really need everyones help...

First, some info on me:
- not circumcised
- sexually active with a virgin (before she met me)
- I always use a condom (except the time i got balanitis)
- i tried anal sex for the first time and thats how i got balanitis...

I recently got over a "balanitis" infection and it doesnt seem like my penis is all the same anymore...
(my g/f says it does but i dont think it does)

i keep it dry and clean now everyday and i think maybe thats part of the problem...

there is no more inflammation on the head of the penis but it seems like after it went away, my penis head didnt look the same as it did before....it looks more dry and maybe red (i dont know cause i dont remember what it looked like before).......or maybe its a little red cause its so dry.....

but in any case, i really would like some help on what to do about this other than going to the doctor...

maybe a picture of a balanitis infection that cured up or something like that...

thanks alot,
worried guy

PS - After having sex (even with a condom) it gets really red until i wash it and give it a little while to calm down... :-(

Re: I really need everyones help...

If I recall, your "problem" wasn't that long ago. I would imagine that it would not be uncommon for it to take some time for your skin to be all healed up and back to it's usual state. Maybe at night, you could rub a little vitamin E or evening primrose oil on your skin and see if that helps. Otherwise, try to put it out of your mind so you aren't obsessing and washing it within an inch of it's life! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Re: I really need everyones help...

It sounds as if your penis is still recovering from the infection and I don't think you have anything to worry about. Some Vitamin E cream or even something to keep it moisturized may help, sounds as if its just a bit too dry. Also, remember that erections and intercourse created increased blood flow and friction, perfectly normal for some increased red color to be there for a while after some action. Give yourself a bit of a break and stop worrying so much. Sounds as if your buddy just needs a little time for complete recovery!
