How do I remove dark scars on penis do to burning off warts. Had genital warts years ago, burned them off myself.How do I get rid of dark scars(please)!

Burn : Burn scars usually last a lifetime. The good news is that they lighten over time. There is a cream called mederma that you can buy over the counter that may help lighten the scar. Read the instructions prior to buying to make sure this gel can be used on the genitals.

Different strain, yes, but not same one. ...Read more
