My son was circumcised when born, now has erection that bend upwards where the scar is on dorsal side. Too much skin was removed? It is very tight.

My son was circumcised when born, now has erection that bend upwards where the scar is on dorsal side. Too much skin was removed? It is very tight.

I assume your son is: An infant or young child. Show your pediatrician. Rarely, foreskin is cut to the point that intercourse is painful for a male, which wouldn't be an issue prior to puberty. If you are really concerned, request referral to a pediatric urologist to determine if there is any anatomical malformation of the penis that would cause your son to have a medical problem. ...Read more

Is there a way to smooth a circumcised penis? The glans and remaining inner foreskin is very wrinkled and has grooves. It's very depressing.

Not needed, but...: What you observed in your circumcised penis usually does not need active care as long as being physical / mentally comfortable.

When my penis is in normal size foreskin is easily pulldown but when penis enlarges foreskin becomes tight?

It's normal.: The foreskin on an uncircumcised male typically covers the head of the penis when there is no erection. With an erection the penis grows in length and girth, and the foreskin "retracts" and gets tight, covering only the base of the penis and leaving the head uncovered. You're okay, that's the design plan! ...Read more
