Hello,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. You can also apply topical antibiotic creams. However if the symptoms persist then oral anti inflammatory drugs may be needed. You have to consult your dermatologist then.

Hope it helps you. Regards.

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.

I'm an 18-year-old male, not sexually active, virgin. I have good hygiene, shower at least 3 times a week. But I suspect I have some sort of penis infection. There is no pain or itchiness, but only those microscopic bumps at the edge of my penis's head, which worry me. They're mainly on top, but I have a little on the bottom as well. I'm also uncircumcised. Can you please help me what to do?

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....
