I've been having a seemingly non-serious problem that has been bugging me for a month. The main symptom is that of mild pain/numbness in the upper corona of penis. The penis just doesn't feel a 100% right. It seems a bit dead. I am having no problems getting erection or ejaculating.
It started a month back due to rough masturbation. I probably used a hard grip, no lube and went back-to-back, probably thrice.
Anyway, went to a doc and told him everything. He discovered another problem and gave me an anti-fungal. However, it flared up (turns out it was candidal balanitis) and I had to change the anti-fungal, and 10 days later the infection was gone.
However the pain and the redness/purplish coloration on the corona is still there. My doc tells me there is nothing to worry about, but I'm afraid he's not probing enough.
In summary: Pain/numbness in corona of penis. The corona is redder/purple. Penis feels lifeless. (it doesn't rise when I pull my legs in) No problems with erections/ejaculation
