Suggest treatment for cuts in urethra
I am writing in regards to several cuts on the tip of my urethra. This injury was due to sex with a dryer condom. Nothing really hurt to much until I pulled the condom off and went to the bathroom. I had a lot of pain. After looking closely i noticed several cuts on the tip. I have been to two urologist who have told me the same thing put neosporin on it and give it time to heal. It has now been 3 weeks. I have refrained 100% from sexual activity and trying not to get an erection but the cuts do not seem to be closing up as quick as I'd like given that I have to go to the bathroom and the urethra moves all the time. I have been wrapping the penis in a gauze pad to reduce friction. I need some serious help. I do not want to do any procedure to fix this but dont know what else to do. The cuts themselves one is below the tip and two are at the sides of the urethra tip. THey seem to be getting narrower ( may be healing) , however, they do not fully close. My urologist recommended that I stop putting cream on and see how that healing goes. The cuts themselves have never blead but I do get some stinging assuming that the cuts open up. I am just concerned that the cuts will not close.
Normal healing period is 4-6 times.
Hello XXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist,let me assure you, the cuts in urethra are in a healing phase.
You've had only minor cuts at multiple sites on the tip.
Normal time for such cuts to heal completely, is about 6 weeks.
Pain and bleeding in initial period, are signs of healing.
As you're not bleeding, you'll have pain, which will be most, when urine comes in contact with that area. Nothing else to worry about.
Erections at night time, occur naturally while sleeping , about 4-6 times.
At such times,the cuts get a little widened, and then pain may be felt, on waking in morning. Avoiding sex is the best thing you're doing, so it heals faster.
Just be cool, and wait it out. Avoid looking at the cuts daily. No gauze needed.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Healing must occur. Use moisturised condom.
Healing is a natural process. It has to occur. Approximate time is 6 weeks.
Prevention is, to avoid dry condoms again.
The tip of penis is most sensitive part of the organ, hence pain also will be more.
Neosporin does help in initial one to two weeks.
Then may be used only once at bedtime, if you feel like it.
Avoid leaving moisture over the area.
You'll be alright soon.
Nocturnal erections will stretch the cuts.
As i'd written earlier, the night time natural erections, cause it to stretch, and may lead it to increase a bit. But,you don't need to worry.
Apply the ointment at bed time then, for one more week.
The natural period can't be accelerated, is what you must understand.
Just avoid moisture there in daytime, especially after passing urine or washing there.
Just relax and give it time to heal normally.
