Leave it alone: Scrotal veins may not be so obvious, but they are always there some more prominent than others. The warmth of the shower cause the veins to vasodilate, a normal response of our body to get rid of heat. The prominence of veins throughout your body during that time is evident by the red color of your skin when coming out of the shower. ...Read more

Minor: If it is bothering you a dermatologist or a general surgeon or a urologist can take it out. They will numb the skin and it will have a couple of stitches which will dissolve. The numbing will burn just for a few seconds. After that it is painless. It is nothing serious. Good luck. ...Read more

I applied 0.5 hydrocortisone cream to my to the head of penis, pubic area and scrotum and now the head of penis and scrotum feels somewhat numb. Help?

I applied 0.5 hydrocortisone cream to my to the head of penis, pubic area and scrotum and now the head of penis and scrotum feels somewhat numb. Help?

Unusual: 0.5% Hydrocortisone is really too weak since even 1% is usually not potent enough. If the problem is persistent, you need to stop using it or perhaps try switching to an ointment. See a doctor if the problem fails to resolve or the numbness lasts more than a couple of day. Make sure that the cream does not have a local anesthetic mixed with it. ...Read more
