My partner has been having trouble with his foreskin, was wondering if anyone has had similar issues. The foreskin chafes and splits after sex, to the point it's painful to pull back and sometimes even cracks open. Under the foreskin (on the glans) there are sometimes red specks, like petichiae almost. The skin sheds sometimes, leaving it red and sensitive underneath. When the cracks heal on the outside foreskin, it looks like they have maybe scarred a bit. He said it's been that way a long time (early teens at least), but it seems to be getting worse. He went to the doctor for it in the beginning of our relationship. They diagnosed it as balanitis, and sent him home with a cortisone/antifungal cream, which hasn't helped much at all. I treated myself at the same time, and we have switched back to condoms because it's less painful for him that way. We have both been tested regularly for the usual STIs, and neither of us has ever had one. He has eczema elsewhere, I don't know if this could be related? The doctors didn't think so, but they didn't seem particularly helpful in general. Or if it's due to his size plus the tight foreskin plus more frequent sex? He didn't have sex often before our relationship even though he's had a few 6+ month relationships . . they were petite girls who had never had sex and basically said they weren't willing to try on account of his size. It would be nice to be able to have sex that wasn't painful for him. Any advice, or ideas on what might be the problem?
