Question: Hi,

I have pilonidal sinus and I am going for surgery in the next week. All the reports are normal. But ny doctor asked that does my penis foreskin go back enough. I didn't understand whats the relation between pilonidal sinus and the penis foreskin going back. He then checked it my pulling my penis foreskin a little back and said that its better to do curcumcision which will help you in future. After he stretched my penis foreksin, i feel a little pain and irritation sometimes. Will this go on it own? The doctor stretched it too much i think. Kindly help.

Brief Answer:
pilonidal sinus

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question on HCM

I do understand your concern

"As" per your clinical history is concerned you have [Pilonidal Sinus] which needs to be repaired surgically and it is a minor surgical procedure. It has no connection with your penis foreskin at all.If you have penis skin stretching problem then it can be repaired later without any problem by doing circumcision. So both are different issues and both are minor problems. Sometimes it retracts easily and no surgical intervention is required and if it is not possible in natural way then surgical treatment is good.

Hope that helps

Thank You Sir.

My concern is that the doctor was checking the penis foreskin and its been 2 days now i feel a little pain sometimes. So will this pain go away on its own. I never faced any problem on my penis foreskin before this. After the doctor stretched it, i feel a little irritated sometimes. So will this heal on it own?

Hi,

Thanks for your follow up reply

"As" per your clinical history is concerned this pain will not last forever and it should be done slowly and full skin will open as doctor has done forcefully so you have mild pain so you can discuss with your treating doctor regarding one prescription medication like [ibuprofen+paracetamol]combination to relax muscle and pain. It will heal on its own.

Thanks

For Urologists:



Like two weeks ago I was experimenting some pain when having sex with my girlfriend, I didn't put attention, as the pain was soft, well, actually the pain was when trying to penetrate her the first time, after that all was good. WE had sex this week, last Tuesday to be sure and the pain was stronger. In the night when I was in the shower I noticed that the top of the foreskin was a little red and swollen (The pennis was erectus at that time) and I try to pull back the foreskin and I felt pain, then I looked a detail and I saw some little cuts on the top of the foreskin, they were minimal, almost visible, I washed whole pennis and when the water was falling it actually hurst even more, like any other cut on the body. I searched and searched the web to found a reason before to go to doctor and my conclusion it was that I have some kind of phimosis, I don't know why, this had never happened to me before. Now the pennis is fine, actually I try to avoid any erection on the day, which is almost impossible but I saw that the cuts gone, but I'm worry that when having sex again they appear. Any advice to know if I will heal quickly, or I have to do something else? Is this serious?

Thanks,

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
