Customer Question
I used some Compound...

I used some Compound W Freeze Off on a couple of small skin tags on my penis. I think I also froze some of the healthy skin surrounding the tags, and now I have these slight white craters. Is there anything I can do to help the healing and prevent noticeable scarring? It has been about a week and using Neosporin has helped. The areas seem to be improving, just slowly.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

About 2 weeks. And no.

Got them--thanks

No infection there at least

Superficial burn basically

I think in time it will heal without any scarring but for now I'd suggest either vitamin E oil or lotion three times a day to speed up the healing process

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
