“Approximately five days prior, his significant other accidentally bit him on the tip of the penis during sexual intercourse,” study lead author Marc Zosky from University of Arizona in the US, was quoted as saying by nypost.com.

“Since the initial trauma, the patient noted the wound to be worsening in pain and became darker,” Zosky added.

Doctors admitted the man to the hospital, where the urology and infectious disease teams both took a look at his blackening tool and quickly treated him with intravenous antibiotics, the nypost.com reported.

There were no drainage issues associated with the wound and the man was later discharged with an oral antibiotic prescription, the study said.

“As in this case, patients who are bitten on the penis often do not seek immediate medical care, and the disease process often progresses. Progression to skin ulceration and infection is common and requires careful wound care and antibiotic therapy,” said the researchers.
