I am a 20 year old boy . I develop a redness and small cuts on the skin on the inside part of the penis (sulcus region). The redness and cuts cause a lot of burning if I put water over it or when I masturbate.Also the entire skin on the head of a penis develops a wierd texture after bath once it has dried, like a wrinkled skin. What can be the probable reason ?Is it safe to use neosprin skin ointment ?
