Hello Doctor,


I am an 18-year-old male who recently encountered some discomfort after pulling back my foreskin. I noticed that my glans have become sensitive, and I'm seeking advice on how to alleviate this sensitivity.



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


To address the sensitivity of your glans, it's essential to explore various methods that may offer relief. Here are some approaches you can consider:


Start and Stop Method: This technique involves interrupting sexual activity when you feel close to ejaculation, allowing the sensation to subside before resuming. By practicing this method, you can gain better control over your arousal levels, which may help reduce sensitivity.

Topical Ointments or Sprays: There are numbing ointments or sprays available that are specifically designed to reduce penile hypersensitivity. These products contain ingredients that temporarily desensitize the nerves in the glans, providing relief from sensitivity. However, it's crucial to use these products according to the manufacturer's instructions and consult with a healthcare provider before applying them to ensure safety and effectiveness.

In addition to these methods, it's important to maintain good hygiene practices to prevent further irritation or discomfort. Keeping the genital area clean and dry can help minimize irritation and reduce sensitivity.


It's worth noting that while these methods may offer relief from glans sensitivity, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider before trying any new approach. A healthcare professional can assess your specific situation, provide personalized recommendations, and ensure that any treatment options are safe and appropriate for you.
