Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for your second query.
Do you have a photo of the lesion ?
Did you have any injuries in the area before ?
They look like mild scarring .
You can apply Dermatrix gel on the area twice a day for 8 weeks
That would help in healing this area.
Thank you so much .
This could have been caused due to herpes. Herpes may have caused a damage within the deeper part of the skin of the penis and resulted in this kind of pink linear scar like lesions . that is the reason they never go away .
I would suggest you to apply dermatrix scar gel which would help improve the appearance of the area. This would help in reducing the pink texture on the skin.
do let me know if you have any further queries.
I would suggest you to get a blood work up done. This would include herpes simplex immunoglobulin IgG and IgM for HSV1 and HSV2 .
This can help you get a better idea and direction to treatment accordingly.
Do let me know if you have any further queries.
Yes , the shiny centre and odd shapes are suggestive of a scarring .
The application of the mentioned cream called Dermatrix would help resolve it .
The blood work may be negative now however it may have been caused by the inflammation much earlier. There is a possibility that when you had the inflammation the blood work would have been positive and now since the area is healed with scars and all we see are scars the blood work up could be negative in the present scenario.
Looking forward to your reply.
I am awaiting a response from your end.
Do let me know . I would be happy to help.
Awaiting your response.
