Doctor :   hi
User :   hi Doctor
Doctor :   how can I help you?
User :   it seems like the skin on the shaft of my penis is severely wrinkled and loose now
Doctor :   ok
User :   when non erect
User :   the top part
User :   besides the penis glans
Doctor :   ok
User :   when non erect, it is very wrinkled
Doctor :   ok'
Doctor :   are the wrinkles increased as compared to previous one?
User :   yes I think so
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   in the top part there is accumulation of the skin which will lead to the wrinkling
Doctor :   sometimes one may feel increased wrinkles and sometimes the same
User :   but I'm pretty sure before it was not that wrinkled
User :   it might be just wrinkled a little bit
Doctor :   ok
User :   right now it is pretty severely wrinkled
Doctor :   since when are you feeling this?
User :   since couple days ago
User :   and this morning when I looked at it, it looks pretty bad
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   are you applying something over it?
User :   no
User :   should I?
Doctor :   in my opinion you should not apply anything
Doctor :   what happens when the penis is erect?
Doctor :   are the wrinkles still there?
User :   when the penis is erect, I think it is okay
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   in that case i think it is absolutely normal to have wrinkles in non erect state
User :   I think this happened when I masturbated using my hands and applying strokes
User :   but I was very gentle
User :   and also I think one time I accidentally rubbed the shaft part against my underwear
Doctor :   ok
User :   how can this cause such a big reaction
User :   because right now it looks pretty bad in the non erect state
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   idont worry
User :   are there any ways to tighten the skin?
Doctor :   these are not related to loosened skin
Doctor :   it is normal
User :   but I think right now it is definitely much more loosened than before
User :   severely wrinkled
User :   on the top part, underneath the meatus and between the penis glans
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   the covering skin is lacking the muscles underneath
Doctor :   so it is natural to have wrinkles over there
User :   do you know if there is any way to tighten the skin again?
Doctor :   as there is no muscles then how can you tighten the skin
User :   so once it's loosened there is no way back
Doctor :   it cannot loosen
Doctor :   as there are no muscles
User :   or severely wrinkled
User :   I understand that in the non erect state, the skin will be wrinkled to some degree
Doctor :   ok
User :   but right now, it is severely wrinkled and very apparent that it is much worse than before
User :   and it looks pretty bad
Doctor :   ok
User :   I was discussing this with another doctor and s(he) said the skin will go back to normal given time...however, from the severity of the wrinkle I think it's going to be pretty hard
User :   or I just don't think it will go back to normal
User :   by itself
Doctor :   ok'if it is due to injury then definitely it will go back
Doctor :   but
Doctor :   if it is normal then the wrinkles cant be reduced
User :   so there is nothing we can do to help reduce the wrinkles once they are formed
Doctor :   in my opinion
Doctor :   if you feel that
Doctor :   the wrinkles are caused due to the trauma
User :   I think the wrinkles are probably due to the rubbing and stroking
Doctor :   then definitely it will go back
User :   yes
User :   the wrinkles are due to rubbing and stroking
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then i think that with time they will go back
User :   oh really?
Doctor :   definitely
User :   but it is so severely wrinkled right now in the non erect state
Doctor :   do you feel any improvement yourself?
Doctor :   even a minor one
User :   no as I mentioned before it might even look a little worse today
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   is there any redness or itching there
Doctor :   which is normally not htere'
User :   yes there is redness and some pain
Doctor :   *there
Doctor :   pain in which region?
User :   there is some pain there because I accidentally rubbed it
User :   on the shaft
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   when?
Doctor :   today?
User :   actually the part where the skin is wrinkled
Doctor :   ok
User :   since yesterday
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   the pain is not a worry
Doctor :   it will subside in a day or two
User :   yes because I rubbed the shaft against my underwear so that caused some redness and pain
Doctor :   ok
User :   and that area is also where it is severely wrinkled in the non erect state
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   prevent the area from further injuries
User :   yes
Doctor :   and i think soon the wrinkles will disappear
User :   really?
Doctor :   definitely
User :   but it's just kind of hard to imagine, because right now it is so severely wrinkled and it will just go back to normal
Doctor :   it will not be wrinkle free
Doctor :   but the number of wrinkles will be reduced
User :   should I apply anything?
User :   moisturizing lotion?
Doctor :   yes gentle moisturizers can be used
User :   will that also help reduce the wrinkles?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   it will help the skin to maintain and to regain its integrity
User :   which brand of moisturizing lotion should I use?
Doctor :   any one
Doctor :   you can use
Doctor :   any body lotion
User :   how long do you think will it take for the wrinkles to disappear?
Doctor :   it may take some months
User :   I am really getting tired of this
User :   being worried and scared everyday
User :   of my life
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   it will heal
Doctor :   only thing it needs is tiome
Doctor :   *TIME
User :   I don't know if I can take it anymore
Doctor :   dont be worried
Doctor :   it is not affecting any function
Doctor :   it is a cosmetic problem
Doctor :   will resolve by itself
User :   I'm afraid that each time I masturbate I will cause it to be more loosen and wrinkled
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   it is not possible
User :   because I think this is why it got loosened in the first place
User :   and from my experience, I think once the skin has been loosened it rarely will go back to the way it was before
Doctor :   it will go back
Doctor :   dont be worried
User :   for example, couple years back I remember I stroked my shaft too hard and caused loose skin and it has been loosened ever since
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes
User :   this was in the main part of the shaft
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   that too appears when the penis is non erect
User :   yes
Doctor :   ok
User :   but that is okay
User :   because I know it is there already
Doctor :   ok
User :   yeah
User :   but right now
Doctor :   ok
User :   I'm sure that the new wrinkles have formed on the top part, besides the penis glans and underneath the meatus, that area
User :   it used to be not that severely wrinlked
User :   wrinkled
Doctor :   ok
User :   therefore I think it will very difficult for it to return back to normal
User :   or maybe impossible
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it will depend on the injury and the person
Doctor :   but ususlly it will revert
Doctor :   *usually
User :   is it possible to get a new penis?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   artificial implants are possible
User :   ok
