Unfortunately, there are situations when men are experiencing serious penis injuries. It is not unusual for men that have experienced something like this to be shocked and afraid. On top of that, they are feeling sharp pain too. That’s why most of them are wondering whether they will feel the same when they are having sex and some of them are afraid that they won’t be able to have sex at all. The fact is that every situation is different, but one thing is for sure – you should not be panicking.
Analyze the problem
One of the first things that you should do when you have suffered an injury down there is to analyze the condition and evaluate the damage. Based on this observation, you will be able to determine whether you will need to visit the nearest hospital and ask for professional help or you can use homemade, natural remedies to treat sexual dysfunction. What men should know is that serious penis injuries are very rare, so most of these issues can be managed at home. Just in case, we will mention some of the situations when men should visit the emergency room as soon as possible:
– Constant tumescence
– Blood in the urine
– Deep bends, new bends or weird angles to the penis
– An injury that has led to a change of the penis shape
– Sharp and deep bruising that occurred after the injury
– Sharp pain that is causing serious discomfort
– Deep abrasions and/or cuts on the penile skin that are bleeding
So, if you notice something like this, visit a doctor as soon as possible.
How to treat an injured penis
Men dealing with mild-to-semi-serious injuries of their penis should be able to take care of their penis health in the comfort of their home. First of all, they should look for OTC painkillers that can inhibit the pain and lower inflammation. Many people say that Ibuprofen is quite effective. Next, they should clean the penis thoroughly and regularly in order to avoid infections.
In case the pain is still present, you should cool down this area with the help of a cold washcloth or even an ice pack that is applied down there. However, you should not apply this pack directly to the penis skin – use a towel as a barrier to avoid injuries.
How to treat a sore penis
If the issue can be managed at home, you can choose a few methods to improve your situation. First and foremost, you should avoid sexual activity for a while or until you feel better.

Keep in mind that there are many specially designed crèmes, lotions, pills and other products that can help you heal your wounded penis.
