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
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Can't be normal, maybe for a circumcised person, but what are those bumps?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.
Those bumps are called rugae. They are normal
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Cosmetically I'm not happy with it and I'm wondering if something can be done?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.
The only thing that could be done is laser treatment
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
How do I reach an expert in that field, who specialises in urology? Seems very difficult, so you know someone?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.
where are you in the UK?

There are tons of cosmetic dermatologists in londonyou will just have to make some calls.try this onehttp://www.thedevonshireclinic.co.uk/dermatology-services/cosmetic-dermatology/
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
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 8 months ago.
So I need someone who is a cosmetic urology dermatologist. Very hard to find
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.
yes, but you will have to call the offices and ask. I can't reasonably do that for you
