What can be done for a tight ring of scars on the tip of forskin of adult males? It's tight enough to stop the skin from sliding back when erect.

Scar on Foreskin: See your urologist for scar revision. Traditional corrective surgery is done via circumcision. If you are not concerned about cosmetics, a simpler procedure called a dorsal slit can be utilized. In this operation the foreskin is left intact but an incision is made through part of the prepuce so as to release the foreskin totally in the midline almost to the rim of the glans penis. ...Read more

Vulvar scar?: Please have this checked by your ob/gyn or a dermatologist. It is possible for a scar to cause discomfort but there are other vulvar conditions that can cause tightening and thinning, like lichen sclerosus & lichen planus, that could become problematic and need to be treated. These conditions can actually cause more scarring and additional problems. Please get this looked at and possibly biopsied. ...Read more

I've a tight hymen. My gynecology scheduled me for a hymenectomy. I'm afraid. Will it cause a scar? & will I bleed a lot? How long the procedure take?

I've a tight hymen. My gynecology scheduled me for a hymenectomy. I'm afraid. Will it cause a scar? & will I bleed a lot? How long the procedure take?

Hymenectomy: Like any surgery, there is a risk of scar formation, however, when done right, the risks are small. The benefit of the surgery is to open the hymenal ring to allow your menstrual bleeding to emerge unobstructed. The procedure is fairly quick and recovery is swift if you are a healthy person

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

I recently had back surgery and the scar is getting somewhat tight when I bend or lean. I put Arbonne neck cream there. Are there better products?

I recently had back surgery and the scar is getting somewhat tight when I bend or lean. I put Arbonne neck cream there. Are there better products?

Yes: I like Mederma Skin Care for Scars. It is available over the counter in the drugstore.
Most of these products need daily application for up to a year while the scar matures.
After a year the scar is usually what you will be left with.
The ingredients are not as important as using it daily to help moisturize the skin. There are other helpful products available at the drugstore as well. ...Read more

I had total thyrodectomy in dec 2012. On the right side of my neck I feel a small lump scar is sore my neck is tight and pulling is this normal?

Yes this is common: Some intial tenderness and pulling from a thyroidectomy scar is normal. Sometimes there can be some tethering of the scar down to the windpipe that may pull when you swallow. Occasionally scar revision surgery can be helpful but you should wait at least 6 months- and perhaps up to 1 year- for the scar to mature. Sometimes an injection of cortisone can help the healing- ask your surgeon. ...Read more

Tight forehead for years left to middle forehead. Tinnitus right ear. When I massage face or shoulders. My left ear moves up&down. Scar in front of ear

Approaches: I agree w earlier info. In addition, consider scar treatment for the scar that is anterior to your ear. It may be adhesive & respond well to acupuncture scar deactivation with or without e-stim or scar injection (not with steroids). Additionally, seeing ENT is a must for chronic tinnitus. Looks like you have already been diagnosed with stress headaches (does that mean tension headache?) you >>. ...Read more

I believe I am a relatively healthy guy. I regularly exercise. I woke up this morning with tightness in my inner chest. I did heavy power cleans yeste?

Stop the cleans: It appears that there may be a link between your power cleans and the chest symptoms. Since there is really no proof that such cleansing does anything good for you, it would be best to stop this practice. You will need to be sure that you are not overtraining (too much weight, exercise too frequently) which may cause sprain in your muscles. ...Read more
