Hello doctor,

After I had sex for the first time, there is a piece of skin on the side of the penis. Is it normal? It is very sensitive and uncomfortable. I have attached a picture.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Though the picture is not very clear (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it appears that it is normal. If there is any swelling or tenderness over that area, visit a doctor for help. If not, there is nothing to worry.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for the reply. I have attached a clearer picture. It is paining and uncomfortable. Does the swollen part under the head look worrisome?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • If there is pain or tenderness, you should visit a surgeon immediately. The swelling is clearly visible. This probably happened because of a tight foreskin or phimosis and the skin not going back to its normal position.
  • You have probably developed paraphimosis. This is a surgical condition. Though it is not very serious, an immediate treatment is needed where a manual repositioning of the foreskin will be done.
  • Take good pain killers like Ibuprofen to reduce the swelling, if you are not allergic to pain killers and visit a surgeon immediately.
