It doesn't seem to let me attach it on my phone ?

Unfortunately, phones use a simplified web browser that does not contain all the functionality. It can be attached from a computer, or you can post it to a file sharing site and let me know the URL.

A bit worried . Does skin on this area take a while to heal
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
That will be fine.

The time that it takes skin on the penis to heal will depend upon the size and depth of the problem that is healing, but it is common for it to take 7-10 days for skin on the penis to heal.

In reviewing the picture, this is something for which you should see your doctor. It is worrisome for being an infection, either from herpes or a bacterial infection of the skin.

Until you can be seen, soaking in hot water and then cleaning it well and drying it completely would be appropriate.
