hi recently in the past month ive noticed my p enis has gotten a "cut-like" dry skin on the edge of the tip, i am uncircumsized and still have not had sex or head so im fairly sure its not a STD ive been looking at the forum
for any information but i was wondering if somebody has found anything new about this, it may have started from a rough... night im not sure i just woke up one day and there it was a nice cut of dry as i can describe it, ive been using Cortaid cream on it daily for the past 2 weeks and i barely see any imporvment infact a smaller dry cut has appeared next to it, slightly connected i just ordered
and will see how it works in the next few days when it comes is there any more information on this im pretty concerned because im about to lose my virginity but its pretty embarassing and unattractive haveing dry.. cut-like things on my p enis i have not been to a doctor but am planning to soon
if anyone has any information on this or any help this would be greatly appricated, thank you

The symptoms you describe are very common in uncircumcised men. They could indicate a minor fungal infection, or they could be caused by contact with soaps, detergents, or other irritants. They could also be caused by dry skin or aggressive masturbation. If you are worried about the symptoms, you really should see a doctor, especially before you become sexually active. You can also help the “cuts” and dryness to heal by cleansing the area carefully (be sure to pull back the foreskin and wash underneath) and applying a penis vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) with natural moisturizers that are designed to keep the penis skin smooth and supple.

Good luck!
