My fiance has been having a problem with dry, cracked skin on his penis the last week. When his penis is soft, he says it doesn't hurt at all and you can't really tell it's dry or cracked. Then when he gets hard, you can definately tell. Also, when I stroke and go downward and pull skin, he says it hurts quite a bit. We really can't figure out what is causing this. We let him((the penis)) have a few days off to heal completely, and my fiance said it felt fine today even when hard and when I was stroking downward. Then, after sex, back to dry and cracked skin and hurting. We're kind of wondering if it may have something to do with my stuff being thicker due to my second depo shot, and when I get wet it really doesn't get outside. That, and also wondering about the lube we use. I can't remember brand right now, but it's flavored lube found in Spencer's. I hurt for a little while where the lube was applied after sex, but not nearly as long as he has.
