Question: Pain located in the head of my penis during erection


 bjd - Thu Jan 08, 2009 2:55 pm

In the last few weeks I have noticed that the head of my penis is sensative during erections. I do not experience any discomfort when not erect, nor am I having any burning during urination. After sex, I am not having any discomfort-I cannot think of anything I may have done to create an injury. I have recently begun taking 2 new meds, lisinopril for hypertension and nexium for GERD. I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in Jan. of 2008 but have not had any treatments as of this time. Please comment!

User avatar Hello,Excessive cleansing can lead to irritation and pain during erection.Application of vaseline should do to get over the symptoms.
