Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada
This could be due to a ligament to hold the organ, nothing needs to be done.
Where exactly is the skin fold? If near root of penis at pubic region, or below the glans penis attached to prepuce, management will differ.
This is called frenulum. Harmless if left alone, does not come in way. If you are uncircumcised, your frenulum should be intact and remain that way even after having sex.
Pl. see a surgeon for this. Can you upload a pic? Could be an adhesion of prepuce with glans, can be separated by blunt dissecton.
Try blunt separation with a glass rod using hydrocortisone cream repeatedly few days and see. Might bruise a little but that will heal, continue some vaseline application to prevent recurrence.
Can do yourself at home. Use blunt tip glass or steel rod. Hydrocortisone will loosen scar tissue.
Make-up kits have such rod. Hydrocortisone skin cream available at pharmacy.
Only if there are thick adhesions, will need scissors, slender bridge of tissue will not be very painful and might just bruise little, with little blood.
Pull back the foreskin and feel - stretch as far as possible and then some more. No harm will be there.
Yes that could be it. Use an anesthetic containing cream to deaden skin there half hour ahead.
Scissor use only advisable by surgeon. May try rod. Both creams can be used together or some time apart, anesthetic one only before any procedure or stretching.
Use antiseptic like neomycin cream. And continue with hydrocortisone. It will gradually soften scar tissue.
