I am having serious problems with aged/ wrinkled skin

Resolved Question:

Hi,
I am having serious problems with aged/ wrinkled skin on my penis which is causing me depression. It is bad enough to have been mutilated at birth (circumcised) but my skin looks awful especially after ejaculation.
I tried creams, keeping it clean,
Keeping it covered, leaving it alone.
I tried a little steroid cream for a few days, no help and also thrush cream which only dried it out more.
I think I need laser treatment to smooth it out. Please don't tell me it's normal I am very depressed about it and afraid to show it to women.
Please give me some hope that it can be smoothed out and refer me to a urology dermatologist who can laser it.
Many thanks ***** am only 22. This is hell.

I think you are looking into this way too much. It looks normal to me

Can't be normal, maybe for a circumcised person, but what are those bumps?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Those bumps are called rugae. They are normal

Cosmetically I'm not happy with it and I'm wondering if something can be done?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
The only thing that could be done is laser treatment

How do I reach an expert in that field, who specialises in urology? Seems very difficult, so you know someone?

The trouble is, if they don't specialise in urology then 1. It will be embarrassing, 2. Dangerous and 3. They may be unwilling to treat it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So I need someone who is a cosmetic urology dermatologist. Very hard to find
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
yes, but you will have to call the offices and ask. I can't reasonably do that for you
