In the Fall of 2006, after a few months of frequent sex with my partner, the majority of which was unprotected, I had a little bit of "damage" on my penis. It's difficult to explain, but basically what was happening was that she was a "little too tight" and my penis did a lot of scraping during sex. At the time, I wasn't worried about it, and during the sex, there was no pain whatsoever, I was of course able to tell that things were a little bit snug, but never feared any dermatological damage would come out of it. It eventually got to a point where we decided to take it easy for a little while because I didn't want to create any permanent damage. I ended up having a doctor visit around that time (not a dermatologist) and brought it up to him. He said to grab some antifungal cream and give that a shot, I think it was Lotrimin. Anyways, I explained to him that I was completely positive that an infection was not possible, and it was due to frequent sex (scraping) with a partner who was "too tight". After a few days of using that cream, there was no real change, which didn't surprise me being that it wasn't any sort of infection. So I did some research on good moisturizers because that's what I felt I needed to use (not the antifungal stuff). I ended up using some Eucerin Lotion/Cream and after a few days, everything was as good as new. After all of this, we were more careful with the sex, we used some lubrication and the scraping never really happened again. Since that time, we have broken up and there has been a few more partners, and some periods of strictly masturbation. I don't know if I just never really thought of it again or what, but the past few weeks, I have noticed that the head of my penis is either a little bit bright red, or a little bit darker than what it should be. There is no open sore or ulceration, no cut, no pain, no bleeding, no thickening of the skin, just the coloration/discoloration. There was never any of these things aside from the coloration/discoloration. Physically, sexually, I'm fine, no problems, it's just a mental thing. I just want the discoloration to go away. Obviously, after periods of sexual activity, the "bright" redness shows up, when there's not much activity, the "discoloration" is much less obvious. So my main question here is there anything I can do? Since this first occurred going on 2 years ago, I fear the discoloration may be here to stay. Is there anything I can do? I've had a few days with no sex, no masturbation and it seems to do the job, but what good is that? After sexual activity the redness will be there again. I do want to stress that when this all started, the head was taking the brunt of the scraping, there was a slight scraping on the shaft but the signs of that left long ago.

Thanks,

  • Why not go for a complete STD screening with some blood work? Have them check you for syphilis and herpes 2 while you're at it. Could have gotten tiny warts but I believe a dermatologist would have to check for that. I would think that you picked something up from her that she didn't know that she had rather than just rough friction burns.
