Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Sore on shaft of penis

Hi DW,

I am forwarding image of of a sore on my penis. I do shave the hair on my shaft and scrotum, yet I am kind of worried. It does not look like a herpectic lesion but I am not sure. It feels like a paper cut. I am going to seek medical advice but just wanted to know what you thought. I did have protected sex recently with a female. And this pain started about 2 days ago, and I feel was aggravated (more torn) by masturbation.


I hope you have sought out medical help. I cannot diagnose over the internet or by pictures. But your health is of the utmost importance so don't delay and go to your doctor. Don't have sex with anyone. I really don't recommend sex outside of marriage. By the way, there is no such thing as "protected" sex. Condoms or any kind of birth control method do not guarantee 100% safety from sexually transmitted diseases. Let me know what happens.
