Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone. If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more

Yes but...: Vaseline sits onthe surface of the skin. It moisturizes the skin by preventing water from evaporating from the surface. Vaseline works well for some people but in others it can occlude the oil glands and cause acne.
