Inner foreskin gets sore - how can I desensitize it?

Edited , 1 user is following.

The backside of my inner foreskin is quite sensitive and gets sore when masturbating or retracted and rubbing in my pants.

Any tips on how to desensitize it?

I wash it every day with warm water and try not to use shower gels, soaps or anything that can irritate it.

Picture attached, showing the area.


Many thanks.

    Dear val,

    Which part, exactly, is sore? Is it the frenulum ("banjo string")- the bit that attaches the underside of the foreskin to the glans penis, or somewhere else?

    I may be mistaken, but the frenulum might possibly be shorter and broader than normal...

      The frenulum is fine and doesn't hurt at all - I also don't have any problems retracting.

      It's the whole inner foreskin area around it on the picture. When retracted and rubs dry in my pants, it gets sore. When I masturbate, it also gets sore quite quickly.

      This doesn't happen to the "other", front side of the foreskin.

      Lubing the area works and makes it feel pleasurable.

      But since I am trying to decrease overall sensitivity of my penis, I keep the foreskin retracted in my boxers. And since it dries out, it gets sore with friction.
