Urologist consult: Feeling thight but is it painful? If it is interfering with your wellbeing, you may seek the expertise of a urologogist and consider surgical release of the tightness. Otherwise, embrace this as it makes you unique! ;-)

Can I use tazorac (tazarotene) on my penis? I'm wanting to impove my skin and hopefully loosen up some of the skin that is tight from my circumcision . That ok ?

NOT GOOD IDEA: Tazorac (tazarotene) will make the skin angry and you wont like it and you would be much better off using Hydrocortisone cream (cortaid otc).

A 55-year-old male asked:
I am a circumcised male. I have a thin line of raised skin that starts just below my urethra opening and runs down the penis head to where the frenulum starts. I can't remember how long it's been there. No pain or other issues. Is this normal?

Pathology 51 years experience
If it has not caused any issues, better to leave it alone. It may just be a variation on normal and be your normal. Wish you good health!

Without examining it, a diagnosis cannot be definitively made; it is possible that is a genital wart.

A 32-year-old male asked:
I was circumcised last year for a tight foreskin and yeast infections. Not all the skin was removed. It covers my corona when flaccid and there is a wad of scar tissue on the underside of my penis. Do I need a revision?
Dr. Hunter Handsfield
Infectious Disease 55 years experience
Probably no need: From your description, I don't see any obvious need for revision. But check back with the doctor who did the procedures.
