Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Please be patient for a response as I may be in the OR or driving, but will get back to you ASAP.


It is possible that you had inflammation of the penis called balanitis. As long as the tissue has healed, you do not need to do anything else. If the tissue still has not healed, you need to see a urologist for and exam and you may need to be prescribed a steroid cream called betamethasone. Hope this helps.
