*The frenulum is visually 'pinkened' (inflammation?) and has little cracks like an eldery persons hands that have dried out.
* The inner foreskin (visible when foreskin retracted/erect) is now somewhat dry and leathery with an odd smooth velvet texture that almost looks like the skin has been sanded down. The natural 'moisture' the inner foreskin has is gone.
* The main foreskin has become lax, and lost it's elasticity significantly
to the extent putting on a condom is difficult. Not just due to erection power loss, but the fact one's foreskin is bunched up inside the condom, and needs to be 'fished' back down under the latex material. This is painful and tricky to do.
* The foreskin is 'tacky' in texture even when dry. E.g. I could touch the skin and my finger will temporarily 'stick' to it. The elasticty is so poor, before I could roll my foreskin down and it would 'pop' back, and now it sits there on it's own. I can also 'roll' my foreskin over itself and again it sits there double thickness.
This is especially noticeable in hotter weather, where the foreskin 'sticks' together (bunches up) and is painful to seperate as it clings together in my underwear. This is to the extent, that one has to go to the toilet mid coversation due to sudden searing pain which I presume is a pinched nerve/blood vessel. To stop this, I roll back the foreskin and try and get a bit of 'circulation' going and try and return it to the state it meant to be in. (A semi erection would 'cure' this).
Visually, other than the obvious sagging, non springy skin there is darker areas of pigmentation - most noticeable when the penis is flacid. There is discolouration patches to the shaft. Chronic ejaculation pain is present, an ache.
My penis itches only on the underside of the shaft (where the discolouration is), although not as bad as it once did when I was 4 stone overweight when I couldn't even walk down a road without desperately wanted to 'itch'. Back then I also had inner groin itching and some discolouration.
Discoloration remains on my lower outer scrotum which I showed a doctor years ago and he said was some kind of infection. As I have lost weight, this is not as much as a problem although the skin is still dry and slightly powdery.Back then I saw another doctor who said nothing on examination, I also went to an STD
clinic for a swab (ouch) which was negative.
To conclude my foreskin is sore to 'use', very 'saggy' and pinkened at the tip of the foreskin for years with a darkened penile 'raphe' which is embarassing as it's very brown. What has changed, is my penis has poor circulation (cold glans) and has noticeably 'shrunk' in terms of flacid girth, which maybe could explain the floppy skin?!
It is hard to get an erection, and I rarely get one with masturbation now as the sensory feeling is less. I don't have 'morning' erections either, unless very occasionally and this when I need to pee!
My non trained guess would say the floppy skin is either premature ageing (caused by increased oxidative stress/ inflammatory cytokines/chemokines - NB At 35yrs old I have 'white' hairs, not grey but white)/low collagen or maybe some form of yeast/lichen infection due to the hyper pigmentation. I'm not aware if this
could then, subsequently affect elasticity. Seem possible. Alternatively, maybe it is simply poor circulation or microcirculation damage caused by chronic immune activation.
I am unable to have a partner due to the 'look' of my penis, and have not dated in years. It is thus (to me) somewhat of a huge issue and it even is uncomfortable (not painful), to masturbate.
I was considering a circumcision, although I feel this could make masturbation
more difficult and I already have poor sensitivity and require visual stimulus to get erect as manual stimulation and erotic thoughts, produce ZERO erectile response.
I haven't told my doctor as she is female, and also because short of her getting very close or using some kind of magnifying glass, she'd probably not see it, or just dismiss it as a pointless complaint.
P.S I have a chronic immune disorder and Dysautonomia.
