Over the past year my fiance has been getting thrush quite badly and i have been contracting it during sex, you dont know you have it until it is too late, so yeah i have had it a fair few times before and i was applying anti fungal cream to it and after a couple days all was back to normal.
Now the past say 3 months i have been getting some sharp pains around my foreskin/frenulum area especially when i pull it back, first i thought it was my frenulum that was not letting me pull the skin back and was ripping (looks red and harder than usual), but in the last couple weeks i have noticed that i sometimes bleed (not much at all) during sex and have noticed a cut/stretch on my foreskin under 1cm long that opens up and am pretty sure that is the pain i am feeling
also it seems now that the foreskin is getting a tight ring around it, not too tight because i have no trouble pulling it back over the head but tighter than before..
im pretty worried that it could be serious (need a circumcision which i dont want to get)
i have been reading around and read that sometimes after getting thrush or cuts sometimes the skin scars up and than doesnt become stretchy which causes a tight foreskin and continuous ripping
so does anyone have ideas on this? i havent been to the doctor yet for the cuts and sharp pain but have been for the thrush a couple times
I have had this same problem a few times. Not sure what thrush is ?
Guessing its when you have a ... strange burning pain around they eye of the penis when urinating ? if so then yes id aggree that this is the cause of the uncomfrotable "TIGHTENSRING" that we are all experencing here.
I have had the same thing a few times. all i do is ignor it. dont have sex as it makes it worse. that includes hand jobs. just relax and before you know it it will be gone
DO THOUGH make sure to pull back the foreskin/frenulum and clean it at least once a day. water and no soap is the better way to clean this area.
Hope this helps :)

Although some diabetics with strict control of their conditions may not need to do anything but wait it out, I would not urge anyone to attempt this. That is, I would not just ignor it. Patience while healing is wise though.
i had thrush and took a while to cure it. takes time to heal this things. so be patient :-)
i had it long simply because i did not keep the area well dry and used continued anti bacterial cheemical soaps thinking it will solve the problem.
use mild soaps like and baby soaps and like soberene with cream in it and glyerine.
next ..this is really useful.
use baby rash cream. really helps keep the the place dry. keeps the wetness out. use mildly and your discretion. too much might distreess you and your gland also.
to avoid candida or thrush coming back..next watch the diets. no sugars first STRICTLY.
and no white flour candies or rice etc.
no coffee and no tea. no honey.
1-2 servings of fruit a day is good. no more. it has sugars in it also like banana and water melon and mango. this are very sweet. avoid it. try papaya etc.
and dont wear undies at night. let ventilation.
wear loose clothes during day.
i still have the cut pains but subsided alot.
no sex and masturbation should help. cut it down to zero first month.
when having sex. apply gel.
a point to note sometimes this pains are psychological.
think abt it. when you are asleep why you dont feel this pains ??
simple..because you are NOT concertratiing on it.
the pains are lesser than we what we make it to be. think abt why u dont feel pain when u sleep. then makes sense with yourself and body and mind that the problem is really in the mind also.
the pains are there when we are moving. makes sense also.
but like one forum writer wrote..ignore it. and it will simmer down.
use the soberene cream and put a smooth layer on it from time to time if it helps. its also used for sunburns.
will make some mind control :-)
hope this helps :-)
I found this on the internet:
Oral thrush is an infection of yeast fungus, Candida albicans, in the mucous membranes of the mouth.
Thrush is an infection caused by a yeast called Candida.
Thrush is the term we use to describe an overgrowth of yeast in a baby's mouth.
Thrush means oral fungal infection.
Thrush is a fungal infection characterized by whitish patches on a baby's tongue or cheeks.
Although some diabetics with strict control of their conditions may not need to do anything but wait it out, I would not urge anyone to attempt this.
Diagnois is normally done by a physician, based upon the distictive pattern or appearance of this infection and lessions in the mouth.
Applicaiton of an anti-fungal ointment may be necessary.
For thrush infections of the rest of body, warm moist locations are most at risk. Thorough drying of all body parts will help to avoid this infection.
Try drying toes, feet, creases and folds thoroughly before dressing.
Consider using an anti-fungal powder in those areas most at risk.
Your cuts and red spots would go in approximately 2-3 days. If this problem still persist contact your physician.
I've had the problem before once for a couple of weeks, and then again at the start of the year. I have reason to believe it's not thrush. I saw my GP about it and she thought it might be thrush as i started to get a furry tongue at around the same time, but she prescribed me some anti-fungal lozenges that didn't cure it. I had a swab taken and results said it wouldn't thrush.
Back to the problem at hand. The second time i had it i had it fore best part of 6 months and it seemed to get better with the thrush cream i bought at the same time as i was prescribed lozenges, but then - while still regularly using - it seemed to get worse and worse. It was a very trying period for me and my girlfriend as we couldn't have sex and it did send me into depression somewhat. Eventually it cleared up after these trying 6 months. But the cream - that i used throughout the entire second bout of it - didn't seem to change it or get rid of it. This would lead me to suggest it isn't thrush.
