Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,if it's ripped very small then you can apply OTC Bacitracin ointment on affected area twice a day.

And it 'll heal by it's own.

Avoid sexual activity for a while.

However if it's long and deep enough then the problem with try to treat these by yourself is that often times when these seemingly simple injuries heal they cause strictures in the urethra (narrowing or complete closure of the urethra) making urination extremely painful and difficult. If the stricture is severe enough, urinary tract infects can become frequent and simple surgery may need to be done to correct the stricture.

I would strongly advise you to see a Urologist for further evaluation and management.

And he will be able to carefully and gently clean and close the injury and ensure that it heals 100% properly with no future problems.

Also antibiotics can be prescribed if it seems inflamed.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

How long to let it heal? With no sexual activity?

Also will polysporin ointment work?
Urologist: Urodoc, Doctor replied 10 months ago

It may take 1-2 weeks.

Keep it clean and dry and apply betadine solution first and then polysporin ointment can be applied.

Hope this helps.

I do think that the skin from urinary meatus to frenulum is injured and torn from dry sex.

A larger urinary hole may not cause any immediate complication but you should consult a urologist especially since chances are its healing may be slow.

You said to consult with a urologist? I thought I was talking to you? I'm kinda confused. What should I do?
Urologist: Urodoc, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Sorry for confusion.

I recommend to consult your nearby urologist in person to treat it with surgical intervention at doctor's office.

In the meantime you can use betadine and polysporin.

Hope this helps.
