for about 2 years now i have been feeling pain on the glans of my penis. i have been wearing boxers for a long time now and it seems that the stitchings around the opening of the boxers has caused pain to the glans of my penis. what should i do
Two years is a long time to have pain. If you have any redness, sores, or discharge, you should definitely see your doctor. However, if the glans (head) of your penis looks normal and it just feels a little sore, most likely the discomfort is caused by chafing from the stitching in your boxers. If it is just this, try changing the type of boxers you are using. I recommend 100% cotton, and try to buy the hypoallergenic type if possible. If this doesn?t work, try switching to briefs for awhile. If you are still feeling the pain, be sure and see your doctor.
