Brief Answer:
Would eventually heal. Hope you were not too traumatic!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully. This usually happens when we do forceful and hard motions over the head of the penis. I encourage you to avoid touching, keep it clean and dry and avoid any masturbation until it is fully healed.

You may also upload an image to this portal for further review and guidance.

I wish you well.

Thank Doc, I will see my GP next week and tell him also, at least I can sleep now. Yes the scabies overall was a horrifying experience. I sympathise with those from third world countries that cannot access proper treatment.
