Two weeks ago, I was fooling around with the girl on top. We weren't having sex, but she was rubbing & grinding very hard on my penis through my jeans and her jeans. I didn't realize it at the time, but the roughness from a frayed button actually managed to rip through my underwear and cause a friction abrasion on my penis. It was bad, scraped a whole layer of skin off my penis, about the size of a XXXXXXX Right under the head, on the backside of penis.

I put neosporin on the irritation for about a week, and have been putting Scarguard & Mederma the last two weeks. The problem is that four weeks later, the skin has not grown back in that area. Thus, there is a pinkish/redish area of the skin that totally contrasts with the XXXXXXX skin of my penis.

I definitely cannot have this for the rest of my life, it looks awful and will definitely affect my sex life. This problem really is bothering me and this is a very busy, hectic time in my life.

What do I do to heal the penis and get rid of the scar?

Are there any prescription creams/ointments to help heal faster and get the skin back to it's normal color?

I hear you. This is a sensitive region & an equally sensitive topic for all men alike. If i am to understand you correctly, the skin has healed now but pinkish in hue & you are desirous of getting it back to normal. I would advise you to go slow. These things have a habbit of getting back to normal but slowly. I do understand you are at a busy point in your life & hence not up to go see a doctor presumably in the near future. You may try to use a cream called Cicabio from a company named Bioderma(french in origin) applied twice/daily & this can be liberally applied for a month or so. See how the scar appears in a month's time & then re-evaluate. If the cosmetic effect is not good, or not up to your expectations, then consider a skin graft & a plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon will be best suited to opine on that in a month's time. Do hope this answer has given you a time frame to make an informed deciscion & do hope the area is soon scar free & back to normal colour. Cheers & Good Luck!
