Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

The condition you are facing is called a frenulum tear. In majority of cases, simple advice like abstaining from sexual intercourse and masturbation for at least a month, keeping the area clean and dry, taking sitz baths with epsom salt, and wearing lose comfortable clothing (preferably cotton) or avoiding inner wear completely for at least a month helps.

The main complication during this period is of course infection. As the groin region contains multitudes of bacteria, an antibiotic ointment like bactricin or neosporin must be used, but on a clean and dry surface. So make sure you apply this at least three times a day, after taking baths at least three times a day with a mild soap.

But in those individuals whom these steps do not help resolve the problem, a doctors visit is required. Once a physical examination is conducted, depending on your current condition your physician will further advice you. For now, please make sure you try all my suggestions and then approach your doctor if you still do not seem to be recovering.

I hope you find my response helpful sir. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.

Best wishes.

I had a penis frenuloplasty 4.5 weeks ago and I have a couple of questions. Firstly, there seem to be a couple tiny bumps (skin tissue?) at the top and bottom of the frenulum, is that normal? Secondly, when I pull the foreskin down initially it feels uncomfortable. I think its because the frenulum is a bit tough and it stretches out. Once it stretches out it feels completely fine and comfortable.

Uhm, hi. I'm 14, not too long ago I noticed these little, hard spots on my penile frenulum. There are about 8-10 of these white spots. I have never had sex, though it may not be relivant, i do get sexual.
If you have any idea what these bumps are, could you please tell me, and tell me how to treat it myself without going to the doctors about it? Thanks.

I have a question about the penis frenulum . During sex the frenulum ripped and cause bleeding. Now it's no longer attached to the urethra . Will the frenulum heal and grow back to its normal state? Will this make it harder for me to ejaculate?
