    You are an obvious candidate for lube.

    Anything slippery, from spit to Crisco to snail snot (well, when you're horny... :D )

    In the meantime, a little Neosporin will heal up the problem almost overnight.

    This is sounding more serious! Do you mean that your penile skin is actaully tearing loose from its attachment to the head and leaving an open wound all the way through the skin? If so, you need a doctor as soon as possible. (Am I over-interpreting your description?) The only thing I can figure (assuming that you're cut) is that your circumcision healed together very thin and fragile. Now that your penis has grown (maybe making the skin tight when you're hard) and you're jerking it (maybe too roughly), it's tearing loose. A urologist should be able to fix it without too much trouble, but it could easily become infected if you don't get some help. I hope that you have a parent with whom you can talk to get you to the doctor.

    When you get over this, continue to enjoy masturbation, but please be gentle with yourself. This is the only dick you'll ever have!

    Your last description makes me think your foreskin does not fully retract yet. If that's the case, you're doing yourself a favor by jacking off, :) as the foreskin will continue to pull away from the glans until it can be stretched along the shaft with no resistance.

    You can also help this development along by pulling it back (stretching) in the shower or the bath.

    In the meantime you might think about asking your dad or a male family member (or even a friend if you're close enough.)

    Not to worry, blahblah23. I had the same thing when I was around your age, and in looking back, I think I went at masturbation with a bit more enthusiasm than I should have. Anyway, there was no permanent damage done.

    First of all, were you circumcised? I'm not and this happened to me when I was around that age and I was probably as freaked out as you are. I do remember the area being very itchy just prior to the skin detaching and the itching stopping once everything was done. If this sounds familiar, don't worry. It's perfectly normal. Like someone said in an earlier reply, it's just the foreskin fully retracting. Just keep at what you are doing and everything will work it's way off in due time. However, if there is a significant amount of pain and discomfort when the skin pulls away, stop what you are doing and go see a doctor.

    Two People you'll want to see when you need to use duct tape to hold your dick on; a dermatologist, and/or a urologist. Now get up off your ass, call either one of them and go! Sheesh!! You really need someone to just blurt that out for pity's sake??

    Are you circumcised? If so, it's possible that it's just you growing up and not having enough skin for the erect penis.

    well mate

    First i think that you are uncut...

    some guys could have some remain of skin adherance...

    can you describe more clearly the kind of 'peeling' you have ?

    Is it a sore or the skin underneath is healthy ?

    Don't forget than some guys have some pinpoints glands fairly visible on the corona of the glans (located on the ridge of their penis ... ) This is normal, they call it papules (papulae)

    You can check theses urls for a dermatologist description : (beware it is a medical description with dermatologist pictures... )

    http://dermatlas.med.jhmi.edu/derm/IndexDi...ageID=650879942
    http://dermatlas.med.jhmi.edu/derm/IndexDi...ageID=891685625

    Pearly penile papules occur in at least 50% of men. When elongated lesions may be mistaken for genital warts.

    Some uncut men who tend to neglect themselves can have some secretions located at the base of their glans, or on their foreskin + glans : It is called the smegma ... (commonly named 'cheese' ... with a strong musty odour...)

    well uncut guys must wash their foreskin at least daily ... with a gentle soap respecting the PH of the genital area (midly acid) don't use strong soap which can make some skin problems due to the tensioactives ingredients which can destroy the chemical balance and fragilize the skin (destroying the lipid film protecting the skin).

    It can happen to on some guys who tend to masturbate very heavily for a long period ... (too eager maybe...) so the skin can crack and making a sore wound...

    If it happens, clean the wound with water, let it heal, and do not recover the sore with something (4skin for example), prefer using trunks instead of tight brief in order to let the moisture go more easily... Do not masturbate for a while... a mild antibiotic can help but due to the nature of the genital area you can't use a regular antibiotic cream... but u can apply some mild disinfectant based on IODINE

    But we need in order to help you more descriptions of the problem you have.

    Don't worry to talk about sex with your dad, because he owns a penis too and he may have experienced the same problem when he was younger ;-)

    Mothers can over react (maybe by children protection...) but they don't know really how a penis works ;-) LOL

    Some of us are telling you to rush to the doctor, but others are telling you that this is a normal and positive development. The reason that you're getting such widely differing advice from us is that you haven't told us if you're cut or uncut.

    If you're cut, your circumcision scar is tearing away from the sulchus (grove behind the head), and you need professional attention without delay. If you're uncut, then your foreskin is just coming unstuck from the surface of your glans (penis head) father out toward the end from the sulchus. That is something that typically happens at a younger age is is overdue for you at age 14. (I'm uncut, and I can't remember mine ever being stuck, but it varies in different people.)

    You're lucky to have a father with whom you can talk. Get his advice.

    Hey, be nice. The kid is young and he can't exactly go to a doc without the aid of his parents, which is a bit embarrassing. Of course, he needs to tell him anyway, but be nice about it!

    The mom in me kicked in.... I know guys banter roughly to 'toughen' each other up, but it still kills me.

    Well i think you should talk with your father about that problem you have.

    Some uncircumcized guy may have skin adherances left from childhood... some skin maybe be left between the glans skin and the foreskin...

    It happens sometimes when child were not obliged by their parents to pull the 4skin down while cleaning or taking a shower...

    Ask you father if he had that kind of trouble, don't be ashamed tell him that you have a little problem that is worrying you... It will show your dad that you are respecting him and you have trust in him and that you are in the way to be a responsible adult very soon.

    Take care of you, and don't let the things worrying you, keep yourself reassuring.

    Keep us inform of your progress and i hope it would be ok very soon.

    BigCKhead's advice in the immediately preceeding post is excellent.

    Are you takng any medication?

    I had a similar problem and it turned out to be a "fixed drug reaction" to an antibiotic I was taking (tetracycline, for rosacea, a common skin condition). As I continued to take the antibiotic, the peel got worse (it grew back and no harm done, other than while it was happening).

    By all means, ask your Dad for help immediately.
