Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help yu
User :   hi Doctor
User :   it seems like I got another problem
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   please proceed with your query
Doctor :   ill help yu
User :   I had a small red patch on the head of my penis, right beside the opening of the urethrea
Doctor :   ok
User :   and it was quite painful for the past week
Doctor :   since how many days
User :   maybe one and a half weeks
Doctor :   is there any discharge from the penis
User :   no
Doctor :   is there any swelling in the groin region
Doctor :   this nothing but lymph node enlargement
User :   yes the skin does seem to be swelled
User :   but today I noticed that the red patch has gotten bigger and darker
User :   although the pain has been reduced somewhat
Doctor :   is it gradually increasing
User :   yes
User :   I believe the red patch is increasing, although the pain is somewhat decreasing
Doctor :   did yu have recent sexual intercourse
User :   no
Doctor :   any itching in that area
Doctor :   any bleeding
User :   no itch
User :   no bleeding
Doctor :   are soreness or itching in the anal region
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   did yu do any test for this
User :   not yet
User :   but I don't think it's a STD
Doctor :   do yu have burning sensation while passing urine
User :   sometimes, because it is right next to the opening
Doctor :   nothing can be ruled out
Doctor :   not to get panic
Doctor :   is this a first episode
Doctor :   or did yu experience this before
User :   first time
User :   I think this might be due to rubbing the penis head
Doctor :   can be
User :   I am so stupid
Doctor :   but my advice is better to rule out other things
User :   to be honest
User :   I rubbed my penis head against my underwear
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   this can be a reason then
Doctor :   as yu dont have other sym ptoms
User :   and I think I have damaged my penis
User :   I'm so stupid
Doctor :   the chances are less likely
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   done is done
User :   do you think that this might be just a cut?
Doctor :   any discharge from the ulcer
User :   no discharge
Doctor :   i can explain yu
Doctor :   because of the friction
Doctor :   penis is very soft and fragile
Doctor :   part if yu apply pressure over that
Doctor :   the minor cuts can go for ulcer
Doctor :   the advice is not to repeat this again
User :   yes I will not repeat this again
User :   I have learned my lesson the hard way
Doctor :   better yu get the investigation done
User :   because I think I have damaged my penis
User :   it is wrinkled right now
Doctor :   nothing doing the minor injury does not damage it
Doctor :   for few days it will be like that
User :   and the skin looks rough and somewhat swelled
Doctor :   once the swelling subsides
Doctor :   the roughness and wrinkles will subside
Doctor :   wats your age
User :   30
Doctor :   do yu frequently masturbate
User :   yes
Doctor :   married
User :   no
Doctor :   did yu have sexual intercourse before
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then not a problem
User :   because it has actually been 2 months since that incident
Doctor :   the chances of STD is very much less likely
User :   yes
Doctor :   here after if yu masturbate also
Doctor :   be gentle
Doctor :   smooth
User :   and my penis still looks wrinkled, rough skin and swelled
User :   I believe this is the best it can get
Doctor :   yes
User :   after the healing
Doctor :   it will be for few days
Doctor :   the superficial healing is done
Doctor :   the deeper tissue to get healed it will take time
User :   because after that incident I had tremendous pain also
Doctor :   force ful masturbation can lead to this problem
User :   yes, I am so stupid
Doctor :   dont repeat this
Doctor :   yes masturbation is not wrong
Doctor :   but the method applied is wrong
User :   okay
User :   but I think my penis will not look the same as before
Doctor :   yes it will
Doctor :   but it will take little time
User :   because right now there are two deep wrinkles on the penis glans
User :   beside the urethrea opening
User :   and the skin color looks dark
Doctor :   wrinkles in non erected penis is normal
Doctor :   for most of the men it will be there
User :   I know that before my penis had no wrinkles and was smooth
Doctor :   the wrinkles usually disappear in the erected state
User :   yes
Doctor :   not to worry
Doctor :   every thing will subside
User :   but it looks pretty bad in the non-erect state
Doctor :   your penis will return to normal
Doctor :   how does it looke
User :   pretty bad, two deep wrinkles, rough/swelled skin, dark color
Doctor :   even in erected state
User :   you can tell that there was a severe inflammation there
User :   in the erect state it is better
Doctor :   yes because of friction the
Doctor :   soft tissue cant with stand it
Doctor :   to overcome they adapt themselves
User :   are there any ways that we can help restore the skin?
User :   smooth the skin and maybe perhaps decrease the wrinkle?
Doctor :   see its a minor ulcer
Doctor :   with inflamation
Doctor :   if both them subside
Doctor :   the normal function appears
Doctor :   wer yu on any treatment before
User :   yes I went to a doctor and he prescribed Desonide
User :   but I applied that once and it caused more pain so I stopped
Doctor :   its an steriod preparations
Doctor :   did yu use that
User :   and I think my skin basically healed by itself
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   not to worry
Doctor :   later did yu use any other creams
User :   yes, but after the healing, it looks pretty bad
User :   no I didn't
Doctor :   after healing the normal tissue to regain
Doctor :   is not completely possible
Doctor :   almosat 80 -85 % recorvery can be achieved
User :   yes
Doctor :   this is because the helaing is by fibrosis
Doctor :   thats the extraconnective tissue takes over
Doctor :   to fill the gap
Doctor :   thats the reason
User :   I see
Doctor :   to get the exact shape its little difficult
User :   right now it looks pretty bad in the non-erect state
Doctor :   but
Doctor :   are yu using any moisturizers
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
User :   well, I am in one particular area
User :   to make things worse
User :   I went to another doctor
Doctor :   ok
User :   and he prescribed Oxistat for me
User :   and I applied that
Doctor :   thats antifungal cream
User :   but I had a bad chemical reaction and my skin is severely wrinkled
User :   and loose
User :   in that particular area
Doctor :   ok ok
User :   so I have been applying Vanicream moisturizer for that area only
Doctor :   yes now i got to know
User :   the area which was damaged by Oxistat
User :   yes this is the whole story
Doctor :   yu had an allergic reaction to oxistat
User :   yes
Doctor :   because of allergic reaction only
Doctor :   the area is severly wrinkled
User :   yes and loose
User :   so I kind of have two problems right now
Doctor :   now dont apply any cream
User :   oh really?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   the application of the creams can worsen the condition
User :   the Vanicream moisturizer?
Doctor :   yu can use vaseline
Doctor :   because its lubricant
Doctor :   which aviods the friction
User :   okay
Doctor :   but before applying clean the area with
Doctor :   warm water
Doctor :   and gently apply
User :   because I went back to the doctor and he said Oxistat has dried up my skin
Doctor :   yes i am sorry to say that
Doctor :   usualy it does not cause any reactions
User :   so that's why he told me apply the moisturzier
Doctor :   only in rare cases it does
Doctor :   ok
User :   yeah
User :   as if I don't have enough problems already
Doctor :   application of mosisturizer will make the skin smooth
Doctor :   wrinkles will reduce
User :   I was already devastated with the wrinkled, rough skin...and now Oxistat made another area winkled and loose too
Doctor :   not to worry every thing will settle down
Doctor :   yu will be well soon
User :   it just looks pretty bad right now with everything that's happened
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   its already happened
Doctor :   now will focus more on
User :   by the way, there's also a red ring around the opening of my urethrea
Doctor :   getting the things better
Doctor :   is it thick
Doctor :   or thin ring
User :   sometimes it is and sometimes it is not
User :   it's weird
Doctor :   any bleeding from that
User :   no bleeding
Doctor :   was this before
User :   no it was not there before
Doctor :   since how many days
User :   I think ever since that incident
User :   2 months ago
Doctor :   ok
User :   I am really devastated by this
Doctor :   i am saying
Doctor :   every thing will come down
User :   is it possible for everything to go back to the way it was before?
Doctor :   yes but
Doctor :   its little time consuming
User :   is cosmetic surgery possible in that area?
Doctor :   because its only localized area
Doctor :   very small region is coverd
User :   some parts are on the penis glans
User :   I am thinking maybe cosmetic surgery is the only way to restore?
Doctor :   but even the area is limited
User :   because I know the wrinkles will probably not go away
User :   the deep wrinkles
Doctor :   why do yu thik so
User :   because it looks like my skin has already completed the healing process and this is the best it will get
Doctor :   im saying that it will take time
User :   because there are actually two deep wrinkles on the penis glans, next to the urethrea opening
Doctor :   i am sorry for the delay
User :   no problem
Doctor :   yes the appraoch of cosmetic surgery is one option
User :   oh really?
Doctor :   my advice is to wait for a month
Doctor :   if the things get better
User :   right
Doctor :   then no need or surgery
Doctor :   its good
Doctor :   i can say yu that the problems wont worsen
Doctor :   if the problem remains the same the
User :   can cosmetic surgery really restore the skin?
Doctor :   cosmetic appraoch can be done
Doctor :   yes
User :   because there will be quite a few areas to work on
Doctor :   cosmetic approach can help to
Doctor :   reduce the wrinkles
User :   I see
Doctor :   and make your penis to look better
User :   I see
Doctor :   even its a surgery right
Doctor :   once damaged the complete recovery is less likely
Doctor :   but the cosmetic surgery will
Doctor :   restore 90% of original one
User :   right
User :   at least make it look better than right now
Doctor :   my advice
Doctor :   is not to worry
Doctor :   yu have already given some time to this problem
Doctor :   give little time we will see
Doctor :   how does the things change
Doctor :   if not then ill guide yu properly to go for cosmetic surgery or not
User :   okay
Doctor :   good
User :   going back to my original question
User :   the red patch
Doctor :   ya proceed
User :   should I do anything about that?
User :   the red patch that seems to be increasing
User :   that is right next to the urethrea opening
User :   I believe it is probably from the rubbing
Doctor :   this is due to rubbing
Doctor :   friction injury
User :   what is weird is that about one a half week ago it started to become very painful but the patch is small and not really noticeable
User :   right now the pain has been reduced somewhat but the red patch has gotten bigger
Doctor :   bette yu get examined once
Doctor :   by the deramatologist
Doctor :   and few test to be done
Doctor :   after examination
Doctor :   are yu there
User :   yes
User :   okay
Doctor :   because its a skin condition
Doctor :   direct examination will give us lot of clue
Doctor :   if yu start using over the counter drugs
Doctor :   if thats is allergic to yu
Doctor :   it can worsen the condition
User :   oh, actually I had the doctor check that about week and a half ago when it was really painful
User :   and he said don't worry about it
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then not a problem
User :   but now the patch has gotten bigger
Doctor :   was any test advised at that time
User :   no
Doctor :   because its getting bigger
Doctor :   the need of further examination is required
User :   ok
Doctor :   or yu can wait for another 2-3 days if it gets better
User :   yeah
Doctor :   dont worry
User :   do you think it might just go away?
Doctor :   if the size increases then go the physician
User :   is it just the skin is healing itself?
Doctor :   yes the chances are higer
User :   I am pretty sure it's not a STD
Doctor :   see the pain was more earlier
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes
User :   the pain has been reduced
Doctor :   i know the symptoms does not say that its STD
Doctor :   ya the pain has reduced now
Doctor :   the process can apply
Doctor :   because some skin lesions increase in size
Doctor :   then they subside
User :   part of the healing process?
Doctor :   yes
User :   maybe I will monitor it for a few days and see what happends
User :   happens
Doctor :   yes yu got the point
User :   and going back to the skin damaged by Oxistat
Doctor :   it require monitering
User :   it is very loose and wrinkled right now
User :   you would not recommend applying Vanicream moisturizer on there?
Doctor :   yu are applying moisturizers now
Doctor :   yu can
Doctor :   do it 2 times
Doctor :   so that the wrinkle reduces
User :   will the loosened skin tighten by itself?
Doctor :   once the wrinkle subsides
Doctor :   the tilghtness must happen
Doctor :   wrinkling impairs tightness it helps in loosening the skin
User :   ok
Doctor :   so let the wrinkles disappear or reduce first
Doctor :   the tightening of skin will happen by itself
User :   and it is very apparent that the severe wrinkles was caused by bad chemical reaction
Doctor :   yu are very upset
Doctor :   regarding the issue
User :   yes
Doctor :   dont get stressed
User :   and very afraid
Doctor :   be mentally cool
Doctor :   why
Doctor :   yu should not
Doctor :   be bold
Doctor :   your problem i can understand
Doctor :   it will take little time
User :   because this happened in such as sensitive area
Doctor :   but it will happen
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   every thing will get well soon
User :   if this was on the hand or feet then I would not be that afraid
Doctor :   ya i agree
User :   yes, this issue has really been bothering me
Doctor :   but yu should be mentally prepared
User :   I really hope that everything can be restored back to normal
Doctor :   yes
User :   but I know the damage has been done
Doctor :   Is there anything else I can help you with?
Doctor :   yes not normal
Doctor :   but near to normal
User :   ok
