Small paper cuts on the inside skin of my penis

Customer Question

Small paper cuts on the inside skin of my penis

Hi Joel,

Your question is currently in the pharmacy section. If you need a medical doctor, please let me know so I can have it moved to medical. Are you looking for a way to heal these cuts?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

Small cuts that resemble a paper cut on the penis could be from friction (like during intercourse) and are generally not a cause for concern. Keep the area clean daily and wear cotton (breathable) undergarments. You can use over the counter Neosporin ointment up to 4 times a day until healed.

If you have follow-up questions, I will be happy to respond. If this information helped you, a positive rating is much appreciated:)

Regards,

Could I have balanoposthitis
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

If uncircumcised, it is possible, but only with some/all of the following symptoms (you have lesions and discharge, so yes it is possible):

  • Red, damp unelevated lesion on the glans and foreskin
  • Soreness
  • Irritation
  • Redness of the penis
  • Painful penis and prepuce
  • Rashes around the penis
  • Presence of discharge beneath the prepuce
  • Tightening of the foreskin or phimosis
  • Foul smelling discharge
  • Apparent ulcerations
  • Unusual enlargement of the lymph nodes over the groin area
  • Fatige
  • Low back pain
  • Anxiety

You can use an over the counter steroid cream (like hydrocortisone) until you can get to a doctor for a diagnosis (which might require antibiotics). A diagnosis and treatment from on online physician service may also be possible.

How do I get medication for it
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

You can use over the counter steroid cream like hydrcortisone to reduce inflammation. Once a diagnosis is confirmed by a doctor, prescription antibiotics may be necessary...you can do this via an online physician service or a visit to your PCP or local urgent care.

hydrcortisone may cure me
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Or do I have to attend to s doctor
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

It may cure it depending on the cause. Finding out the cause is the reason you would need to see a doctor. It could just be irritation from soap and/or poor hygeine, for example, OR it could be bacterial of fungal (which would require prescription medication). If you don't want to see a doctor in person, there are online services that accept insurance (or credit if you don't have insurance) and can prescribe antibiotics (if necessary).
