: : : somebody please help me!
: : : i am a 27yr old guy who had sex for the first time with my gf 1 1/2 weeks back. we actually did it the very next day after her periods were over and did not use any condoms.
: : : i am seeing something strange happening to my penis.my penis is uncircumsized. recently since 4 days, the tip of my foreskin feels very itchy and it burns. i am applying body lotions to sooth it but i dont know if that is going to help me anyways or not. when i try to pull back my foreskin, i see that my glans is all dry and looks scaly white.
: : : i am really worried if i caught something. i am too embarrassed to go to a doc.
: : : can somebody tell me whats going with me? help please!!
: : I'm uncut also so lets think through this a bit. Sounds like this is something you've not experienced before, you're sure its not smegma? Is the head itching also? How about any discharge from the penis? Obvious sores or lesions? Any pain, redness or swelling? Did you use any lubrication that could have caused this? Was the intercourse too dry (not very lubricated?) This could have caused a friction type burn or abrasion. I think I'd try a neosporin type ointment on the foreskin and just under and around the glans area. It may help us if you can answer the questions I asked. Sounds like just an irritation to the area that can be treated fairly easy, but unfortunately a visit to the doc may be needed if it doesn't go away. What I'm hearing doesn't sound like an STD but very well could be. Keep in touch!
: :lance, thanks for replying back.
: in answer to your question, yea, this is the first time i ever saw this kind of thing on my penis. to give u even more clear picture... when i pull back my foreskin completely back.. my glans looks like as if it was powdered with some after shower talk or something.. some kinda powdery.. white flaky stuff all over it and right around the bridge between the glans and the shaft.
: there is no pain or swelling or any discharge.. atleast so far(and i hope not in future too).
: the only discomfort that i am having is a little itchy sensation at the edge of the foreskin and some burning sensation... thats all...
: i wonder sometimes... is it just cos of some over abrasion of my foreskin over my glans or what?.. like i said.. it was my first encounter.. and to be honest..i think we over did it.. the long weekend was really a very very long weekend for us :-)
: right now i am just applying neosporin over the glans and the foresking and just hoping that it clears up soon.
: any insight will surely help me...
: thanks again...
Thanks for being so honest about whats happening. I really wish that I could help more but I think that time is going to prove that this is nothing major. I suspect that the "long" weekend could have resulted in a friction type situation and that what you may be experiencing is some overworked or dead skin on the glans, since this was a first, there may have been just a bit of "stress" to your friend. Sounds like you're doing the right thing. I'd give this a few days and see how things are going, be careful not to create more of a problem (be careful with masturbation or intercourse for a few days) Watch for ANY change in the situation and don't be too fearful of seeing a doc if anything changes (swelling, redness, discharge or etc) Write back and let me know how things are going, I'm on the board a good bit! Also, just be sure to keep the area really clean of urine and sweat etc, this could increase the chances of an infection. Hopefully, this hasn't made you weary of future sexual opportunities....it really is a great thing!
