Peyronie’s disease is the most common explanation when men have sexual pain, but it is not the only one. See your doctor for an official diagnosis, but here are some other culprits.
This is an inflammation or infection of the prostate gland that can cause swelling and pain in the area behind your penis, pain or burning when urinating, and painful ejaculation.
Men with asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis do not have symptoms. A health care provider may diagnose asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis when testing for other urinary tract or reproductive tract disorders. This type of prostatitis does not cause complications and does not need treatment.
These are sometimes characterised by itching or burning at the tip of the penis. Common culprits for this imbalance are antibiotic use, frequent sexual intercourse, irritating soaps or deodorants, wearing tight-fitting underwear, or any exposure to a hot and humid environment. The role diet plays in increasing the risk of a yeast infection is unclear, but candidal infections are more common in people with diabetes. They are sometimes the first clue to the presence of diabetes.
Allergies and sensitivity to chemicals or soaps can cause an inflammation of the skin on the penis, especially for men who are uncircumcised. This rash occurs on areas of the body that have come into contact with substances that either irritate the skin or cause an allergic reaction, such as poison ivy, soap and essential oils. The red rash may burn, sting or itch. Blisters may develop.
If you have genital herpes, a sore on your penis can make for very painful sex; it’s better for the healing process to refrain from sex in any case. Also, such sores are extremely infectious. The good news is that they do clear it up by themselves but the blisters can come back. Treatment from a sexual health clinic can help.
