How can a split median raphe under the penis be treated?

I have a split in my median raphe on underside of my penis shaft. It has been there for years but now looks to be growing and extending further down to my scrotum. It doesn t hurt or anything but the sides have grown with excess skin that stick out. Is there anyway to stop it from splitting? And anything I can do to remove the skin on sides of split?

Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, this can be repaired by surgical stitching.
So better to consult plastic surgeon and get done clinical examination of your penile skin.
Suturing in specific way can stop the progression of splitting.
Also available excessive masturbation.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
