Brief Answer: simple surgical procedure will be curative Detailed Answer: Hi Greetings Dear XXXX There could be extra prepucial skin which if it's covering more than half of glans may require re-circumcision And based on clinical examination findings if it's webbed pen - scrotal fold( penile skin fused significantly to the scrotum skin) it can easily be released by simple surgical procedure. As you also said it's itchy, possibility of fungal infection needs to be considered and ruled out. It can also be easily be treated with antifungal ointment. I would reassure you that there is no cause for concern. Based on clinical examination findings things can be corrected by simple surgical procedure to achieve lifelong solution. Rest be assured everything is alright. Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you. All that is required is a good visual examination and further management can be planned according. Take care Best Regards Dr Deepak Kishore MBBS, MS, MCH Consultant Surgeon
