In Reply to: Dry foreskin produces tiny cuts on foreskin. posted by alejo on October 30, 2000 at 20:30:37:
: I'm a 39 year old male. For the last 5 or so years I've experienced a drying out of the skin around my penis (I'm uncircumcised). Sometimes it gets so dry that having even a slight erection will make the skin break (several small 1/16"-1/8" cuts) around my foreskin. My wife and I have been using lubricants to help during intercourse. She's also, in the past few years, begun to experience some drying of her own. Sometimes during sex, even with lots of lubrication, the skin around my penis, and sometimes even the skin around the base of the head, will get these little cuts. When she performs oral sex on me is not so problematic, but sometimes, even with the extra moisture, I will get the cuts, specially at the moment of ejaculation, when my head expands. Is this normal? Is there something I/we can do to prevent this?
I think I might want to consult with a doctor on this. One suggestion may be to use a hand cream or moistening lotion on your penis all the time, not just during sexual intercourse, but be sure that its one that is OK for that area.
