Foreskin Tissue Scarring
Scar tissue full circle of scabs was formed on the tip of the foreskin covering the head, the skin is fully retractable, happening for past 3 years.

For the time being, avoid any further local physical and chemical stimulation if any. Of course, go to see urologist for further attention.
Besides, healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence and obsession will help...

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
