Abrasion In Glans Penis

Abrasion of the penis occurs with activities like vigorous sexual intercourse or masturbation, trying to pat dry the penis with a rough towel, and wearing tight-fitting clothes. Tiny scratches, pain, swollen penis skin, and redness can be present. Wearing loose-fitting clothes and using lubrication while masturbation or sex helps prevent penis abrasions.
