How can I get rid of hyperpigmentation marks of the penis? I am trying amlactin right now. I want them gone. I am very self conscious.

Let's talk: If the lesion is from a tight grip, use a looser one with lube & it will fade -- this is better overall to make you adaptable in the future. If you have freckles / natural hyperpigmented spots, many men have them and i'd be surprised to meet a woman who cares. Learn about your body talking with smart guys -- maybe even dad. Your physician can identify a pigmented spot that's worrisome. Cheers. ...Read more

How do you cure hyperpigmentation on your upper lip and penis?

How do you cure hyperpigmentation on your upper lip and penis?

Med vs laser ..: I am not sure if there is truly a cure, but there are treatments. Depending on the severe and extent (how large an area), bleaching cream such as lustra (hydroquinone) (actually otc) may help..But will re-darken with exposure to the sun. Laser treatments actually destroy the pigment-producing cells and thus more permanent. Would first check with doc to make sure pigmented area/moles not cancerous..Good luck. ...Read more

Does circumcision reduce sensitivity? I read that rigid band and frenulum are most sensitive part of penis. And these are removed during circ.

Yes and no: Obviously sensitivity is lost in skin removed after circumcision, but glans penis (most sensitive part of penis) is exposed to more friction ; thus more overall sensation when no longer sheathed by foreskin. Frenulum is very sensitive, but not necessarily pleasureable, thus removal during circumcision, which i do, does not adversely affect the subject. ...Read more

My foreskin doesnot retract automatically when erect.If i push only head of penis is visible will i be able to penetrate without circumcision?

Urology question: That is a good question for a urologist - and the doctor will, most likely, need to examine you to see if you need to be circumcised. You've made it to 29, so i'm guessing you'll be ok, but an exam will be needed to tell you for sure. ...Read more

Photo might help: Brown patches skin on penis head after circumcision at 17 years old. Probably just a hyperpigmentation as you grow older. If that is the case you don't have much to worry about. On the other hand if you have any other urinary symtoms such as burning, red urine, irritation of the skin of penis, etc.. it may be worthwhile to check with your doctor. A photograph may help. Thank you and good luck !!! ...Read more

I got my circumcision  6 days ago, and my stitches already completely fell out. The penis looks fine but I've been feeling Nauseous since yesterday. ?

Not related with...: Glad that you have experienced a surgically successful circumcision. Your nausea is not physically related with it. I would look into the possibility of poor sleep or rest as well as possible side effects from taking pain medications or other drugs if you have no systemic symptoms like fever, muscle soreness, general fatigue, etc. If not improving over next 12-24 hrs, seek evaluation.counseling. ...Read more

My 4yr old just got his circumcision done two days ago the gauze just wont come of its really stuck to his penis. What can I do so it can come of easl?

My 4yr old just got his circumcision done two days ago the gauze just wont come of its really stuck to his penis. What can I do so it can come of easl?

QUick and easy: The gauze is stuck because some of the blood and fluid from the cut edge dried and has stuck. Soaking the gauze really well will help a bit but for better or worse, you will have to get it off. Best trick it to then gently apply traction on the gauze and then using a finger, push the skin away from the gauze. Do not pull the gauze away. There will be a second of pain and a little blood. ...Read more

Where should the circumcision line on my upcoming sons' penis be?

Where should the circumcision line on my upcoming sons' penis be?

Below the glans: The "tip" of the penis is the glans, the smooth part. The foreskin is cut around that, and then falls back to the shaft, allowing the glans to stand out with the rim of the glans visible (it looks purplish usually). Sometimes there is slight re-adhesion of the foreskin to the glans, but we don't get too worried, those usually relieve themselves with future erections. ...Read more
