It is best to leave these alone. A skin/soft tissue infection in the genital area can be very serious. They may be unsightly but they are sterile.

When I get an erection, I can't fully retract my foreskin over the glands of my penis. Why is this? Is there any solution? I'm uncircumcised. Thanks

Hi doctors. My penis gland have a chap skin. It is dry and its look like an old man skin. I don't feel any different and my urine is fine.

For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. Hydrocortisone as dermacort), while more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid. But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a physician. Moisturizers such as cerave cream are helpful. ...Read more
