1. Prostatitis

Prostatitis takes place because of an infection in the prostate gland. It leads to swelling, inflammation and pain at the back end of the penis. It leads to pain during urination and ejaculation. This condition can be treated with medication prescribed by a urologist. You could also try sitting in a tub of warm water with your buttocks submerged in the water. Also, drink lots of fluids and refrain from sitting in the same place for too long.

2. Dermatitis

Especially in case of men who are circumcised, dermatitis can take place. It happens due to sensitivity on the skin of penis due to allergic reactions and sensitivity caused by use of chemical products. For treatment, ensure that you do not use anything on your penis just before sex. In case the allergies are severe, refrain from sex till you recover.

3. Genital herpes

Genital herpes is a sort of sexually transmitted disease which can spread infection very easily and cause a great deal of pain during intercourse. In this condition, lump-like pimples form on the penis. In this condition, you should not have sex till you get a proper treatment from a urologist or a sex therapist.

4. Tight foreskin

When the foreskin of the penis is too tight to retract from above, it causes a great deal of pain during intercourse. Sadly, not much can be done about this with the help of medication or home remedies. But you may have to go under the knife for relief from this condition.
