If someone has any ideas regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated. I am a 40 something female: For the past two weeks, my partner has been suffering from the following: The skin just below his head, when you pull the skin back is very red and shiny....no bumps, no blisters, no cuts. Just very red and he says that when he gets erect and his clothes bump him, it is very very painful. I have been tested for STDs and am clean and have no irritations, infections, or otherwise. We use latex condoms on a regular basis. I have heard that too rough sex, (which is frequently the case) could be the cause. I have also heard that too frequent masturbation may be the cause. Or even dry masturbation. In other words, it's just plain irritated. Any ideas as to what might be going on??View Thread
