    corona of penis hurts after sex

    HI,

    the corona of my penis (the fireman's helmut!!) starts to feel sore after I have sex. I can have this soreness last a week. Is this normal? If not, what could this mean. I've noticed, for instance, that If I masturbate a day after sex, it will actually feel painful. And just to answer the pre-requisite questions, no I do not use a tight grip, yes I've check for any infection (none found).

    No, it's not normal. There's nothing normal about pain. Most likely you have a skin infection (like fungus) that is making the skin fragile so you are getting small tears in this delicate area which hurt, even though you may not see the cracked skin.

    First, stop having sex. Second, both you and your partner need to be treated for a fungal infection at the same time or you'll keep reinfecting one another.

    If the cream you use does not clear up the problem within a week, see a urologist. No sex or masturbation during that week.
