Is it possible for a circumcised penis to develop grazes from too much friction and a low immune system?

Is it possible for a circumcised penis to develop grazes from too much friction and a low immune system?

I wouldn't worry about a low immune system in this situation; however, if you have other unexpressed concerns - discuss with your physician (they would need to do testing to answer your question appropriately). ...Read more

If I have a low immune system and i had abnormal cells removed cud they cum bck quicker before 6month check up cause of my weak immune system?

What is weak?: The term "immune system" is very broad and begins with an intact integument (skin & soft tissues). You have different types of wbcs, different types of lymphocytes and antibodies, and so on and so on. Be specific about what you think is 'weak', but suspect the 6 month check up will be fine and you need not be seen prior to that unless something unusual occurs. Good luck. ...Read more
