Extremely Dry Skin

About a month a go I started noticing that the skin on and around my penis began peeling off, which caused any type of workout or even walking to be painful, Iv'e tried all sorts of moisturizers and nothing seems to solve the problem. There have been a few times where I will actually start to bleed since all layers of the skin are gone. If anyone can point me towards a treatment I would apreciate it.<p>[This message has been edited by UNLVBoxer (edited 02-09-2002).]

Re: Extremely Dry Skin

Sorry to say, but it sounds like an incurable case of peely penis disease. JUST KIDDING. ( I know it was in bad taste, I'm sorry)
Sounds like jock itch. There are many products out there to treat it. <IMG SRC="">

Re: Extremely Dry Skin

Never heard of this condition and certainly isn't a good thing to have dry, peeling, cracking and bleeding skin on a penis. Too much risk of infection there because of bacteria, urine, sweat etc. I'd be seeing a doc for the proper treatment...and soon! By your name does it imply that you are a college athlete? If so you might start with your athletic trainer or doc and see what they have to say. Good luck, but take care of this asap!

Re: Extremely Dry Skin

Somebody posted about this a few months back and I told about what I'd experienced. When I was in college I had a bout of skin peeling off my dick and it was very sore and red and irritated for a few months(too raw to even jack off), and I tried everything I could think of to stop it. The skin would even stick to my underwear and it hurt like hell to separate them. I eventually decided it was the water in the dorm I lived in, since it stopped after I moved to an apartment. It was bad at the time, but it stopped when I eliminated the thing that was causing it. See if you've started a new soap, lotion, or anything lately. It could also be jock itch. Have you had it before?

Re: Extremely Dry Skin

Thanks for the replies. No Iv'e never had Jock Itch before, but I'm not experincing a rash at all and it doesn't itch. Iv'e been reading up on jock itch and it says 90% of the time it will be a rash where the thigh meets the pelvic area. Foosball fan the way you decribed your symptoms is exactly what im experincing and I cant think of anything new that Iv'e started using.

Re: Extremely Dry Skin

As it sounds like a dry skin condition, you may need to treat it with a dry skin cream. In the UK, we have 'E45 cream', which I have been using to good effect on my shaft. I have lots of small bumps where the hair follicles are at the base, and scaly skin which have been getting worse for ages.

I realised it must be due to very dry skin, as I never moisturise it. And I don't always have time to wash as often as I should! (Well, every other day, instead of twice a day - lazy I know!). The E45 cream has helped to return the skin to a less bumpy texture. Failing that, you could try vaseline intensive care or something similar.

Also, for jock itch, I use Daktarin cream (for athlete's foot) at the top of the thighs, as this contains micanazole which is the best thing for jock itch. Works better than anything else (including Lanacane powder).

Good luck, hope things improve
