Hi, thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns. Following is my reply : 1) Penile skin is thin and sensitive. Thats why undiluted savlon might have caused slight burns. 2) It could also be due to allergy to savlon. In either case, dont apply savlon again. Now clean it with cold water and keep it dry . It will slowly heal. I hope I answered your query. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
