Hi, Couple of weeks back when I was having intercourse with my wife I got little pain near the joint of penis upper skin and head of penis. I ignored it. On the sameday night during intercourse I observed little blood on my penis. I realized that the joint (frenlum?) is ruptured and restrained from further activity. I consulted my GP and he saw the ruptured area and agreed with my observation that the frenlum is ruptured. He said if it tears further it may require stitches but at this point of time it is not required. He gave me CLOSTAR-GM ointment and some antibiotic for three days. It's been ten days since I have started applying this ointment, normally I don't see any pain or discomfort, so I tried intercourse again with condom so that the rupture will be minimum but even after ten days I still got discomfort and pain so now I am again refraining from intercourse. Since it is sensitive part doest it take more time to heal? Should I be doing any other things for speedy recovery. For last ten days I refrained completely from straining the joint. Any other suggestions or medicines that I should try? I appreciate any help or information on this. Thank you.

Brief Answer: Give it more time. Detailed Answer: Hello.Welcome to XXXXXXX It is common problem than thought. There are two ways of going about this. Give it more time to heal like say 4 weeks and if possible 5-6 weeks. Chances are there that it will heal completely by then. Apart from local ointment nothing else is needed or help in rapid recovery. Now if it heals with scar tissue causing discomfort or still problem recurs then one time ideal solution which can be suggested is adult circumcision. Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Brief Answer: Simple and easy treatment. Detailed Answer: It is simple one day procedure, 2-3 days rest is enough. If there is no tear then you can let it heal and see if it recurs.If everything is fine then no need of surgery. Regards.
