See urologist...: From what I can sense on what you described, your condition probably poses no serious healthy concern as long as not hurting, not swelling and thickening, and no expanding.

I'm using Daktarin for cuts on my foreskin but I have many scars and the cuts heal slowly or not at all. How do I heal them both without circumcision?

? Prepucioplasty: Foreskin keeps splitting because you have a degree of phimosis (it's too tight to retract easily) Now unlikely to respond to steroid cream due to scarring. Next most effective treatment would be prepucioplasty. Vertical incision is made thu constricting area on upper surface & sutured transversely. Skin will now be loose & retract easily & avoid further splits once it has healed. ...Read more

Why does infant circumcision with mogen clamp leave more inner foreskin than other methods? Also does scar halfway down penis mean aggressive circ?
