I ask my doctor a week ago about what might be causing severe pain when my penis gets hard. I told him that you do not even need to touch it. It gets hard it feels like it is going to explode. It feels like it has over inflated and there is no excess skin and the head turns purple and starts to tear. It is very painful. He suggested raising my blood pressure medicine thinks that will help. Been 2 weeks on the new dose and last night I woke up with and erection and as usual it was sore and bleeding. After 3 days it is healed and no signs of any problems until it gets hard again and it starts all over. I am to the point that I will even take med's to prevent any erection as the pain is so bad. Anyone have any suggestion or advise?

  • sorry this reply is months late. maybe others reading this can find this post useful. Are you circumcised? if so its possible that too much of your natural foreskin (and total penile surface skin) has been removed. it is possible to restore shaft skin with certain methods and devices. unfortunately it is not a quick process but surely could help to improve this condition in a quick enough timeframe. best part is you wont need to swallow a bunch of pills that wont wind up helping you.

  • Raising BP to help your issue dont sound at all right to me. I dont know if its a strange coincidence or not..but my partner has high BP and I can actually tell by his penis size when up if he's taken his blood pressure pills or not. When he dont take them and his BP is high, his penis seems to be bigger (not smaller). (someone please tell me if that is some kind of weird coincidence.. i swear he's smaller when he takes his BP pills)........... Go and see another doctor.

Well the Doctor wanted to raise my Blood Pressure Medicine to lower the blood pressure thinking that is will make it not as erect maybe if the blood pressure was lower it would not fell like it was going to pop like a balloon. Did not work so I seen another specialist in Urology and what a quack. Told me to rub hydrocortisone cream on it several times a day and after a week it should be better. He said when we get older the skin around the rim gets thiner and this would correct it. Did not help at all. I believe your partner was doing what my doctor thought would help me, by taking the pills lowers his blood pressure hence making him not as hard. Thanks for your reply.

Yes I am circumcised. Please tell me the methods and or devices. It seems to be getting worse. The other day it got so hard so quick that it looked like it was caught, well it was. It had to have help coming out all the way. I had to pull the skin back and when it popped out the rest of the way the pain was so bad. It now seems to be in the shaft skin and the head or rim no longer gets sore, just the shaft. It fells like it is over inflating. Thank you for your reply, I will try anything. 2 Specialist and still no relief, had an appointment with the third one today, You know the Ole saying "Three times a Charm" I just wish someone knew what they were doing.

Anyone have any suggestion or advise?Hello,If you are NOT already circumsised then perhaps this may be the problem. Your foreskin is not expanding as it should and therefore when you get an erection it tears the foreskin as it is not elasticated enough. If you are not circumsised then I would suggest you get it done. In the meantime, use LOTS of lubricant and massage into your foreskin at the first hint of an erection. I would also suggest you do this before going to bed to sleep. THis will help enormously. Try KY jelly. It is waterbased and the best on the market. Hope all goes well for you...
