Sexually Transmitted Diseases/burn on penis


My name is josh I'm 17 and I need some help ASAP. I had unprotected sex the other day and afterwards I realized that the head of my penis was burning. It looked like a rug burn on the head of my penis. There are no problems when I urinate, I hope its not an STD. Plz help me ASAP.


I thought I answered this question yesterday??? That's an abrasion burn and nothing more and it occurs when you have unlubricated intercourse. It will heal on its own and if you want to speed up recovery you dab some hydrocortisone cream on it a couple times a day. I would behoove you to invest in a silicone or water based lubricant PLUS a barrier method if you want to engage in vaginal or anal intercourse in the future to prevent abrasions from happening. Plus, lubricant is good practice when masturbating as well as it prevent chafing, which is what causes the burns to begin with.

Best wishes,
