Doctor :   for a day, it is fine

User :   and for local anesthesia, a Dr will inject in my penis?
Doctor :   Yes, that is right

User :   Painful it may b
Doctor :   just 1 prick

Doctor :  
as after that it would be anesthesised
Doctor :   anesthetised

But if surgery is needed, then it should be done
Doctor :  
No other alternative
User :   Any Urologist can do this surgery? or any specific Dr

User :   ok.. R u a Urologist?
Doctor :   No I am a General Physician here

User :   U r from which part of India?

User :   ok...gr8...
User :   So to sum our discussion, only surgery can help me
Doctor :   Topical steroids could be used

Doctor :  
since it is already ruptured
User :   Now it has healed
Doctor :   Ok

User :   so if u suggest some I can try it
Doctor :  
That should be taken on prescription only
Doctor :  
and without personally examining it is not advisable to do that
User :   can u Rx online?
Doctor :   No, that is not available

Doctor :  
Prescription is only after an examination in person
User :   ok... I have a ray of hope that some cream may help me to overcome this problem
Doctor :  
Sure, it is always advisable to give a try
Doctor :  
Stress on that part during your consulatation with the Urologist
Doctor :  
that is the tip I can give you
User :   Thanks Doc...
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
