Brief Answer:
Champagne can cause mild irritation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for champagne poured on penile skin.

Champagne is a mildly irritant liquid with low potency of irritation. As our penile skin is the thinnest skin in our body so it can cause variable irritation of mild to moderate nature.

But overall it is not dangerous for skin and do not cause any major problems.

If the champagne is poured in few hours only then you can do cold compressions over the penile area. Take towel dipped in cold water and compress the area for 5 to 10 minutes. It will reduce the stinging sensation.

Do let me know if you see any redness or feel increase in stinging or burning sensation.

I hope these informations will help you. I will be glad to answer any further queries.

I had the champagne spilled on my penis twice in the evening while with a woman .During the night when I went to urinate my penis was retracted to the point when the shaft was basically missing and skin protruded over the head of the penis and this scared me. I am also circumcised. This happened in November 2013. I thought maybe this was caused by the champagne. When I arose in the am everything was fine. Then last week (July 2014) I got up to urinate and my penis was retracted and looked like it did in November and now I am obsessing about it( delayed reaction from the champagne from November?) and my penis is basically just the head now. I am also 5 ft 7inches and 300 pounds. Can I be worrying myself to such an extent that I have made my penis retract ? I do know hearing that champagne could not be the cause is a relief already but then why did the penis retraction happen again last week. Thanks.

again last week.

Brief Answer:
Champagne is not the cause. Reduce your fat

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

Welcome again and thanks a lot for your follow up with important details.

I have read the complete details and after analyzing the complete situation let me first and foremost reassure you that retraction of penis is not at all related to pouring of champagne on penis.

As I said earlier, if at all champagne is poured the only problem is mild to moderate irritation and that too temporary. There is no long term side effects of the same.

So let you clear your doubts regarding champagne and do not worry about the same.

Regarding your present problem of retraction- I can see that as per your height your weight is quite high. Obesity is one of the important cause of increase in fat content of abdomen. The skin over penis is in continuation with abdominal skin but the underlying fat is marginated just above the base of penis. Therefore the fat is not in continuation with penile skin.

Our penile skin is very much retractile skin and usually we do not perceive this retractiblity on higher side till the abdominal wall is flat. Because of increase in abdominal fat we off and on can perceive retraction of penis at one time and normal appearance at other.

So you do not worry about anything serious and just relax about any issues.

It is my personal suggestion to you to reduce your weight to 75-80 Kg which will solve all your issues as well as would be the best for your general health too.

I hope these informations will calrify all your doubts. I will be glad to answer any further queries or if not then can close the discussion and please rate the answer.
