Kindly wash the area with cold water. Following it, you can apply Fusidic acid cream over the affected area twice daily. Apply moisturizer cream at bedtime.

Take Tablet. Levocetirizine once a day to overcome itching. Wear loose-fitting undergarments. Gradually, you should be able to overcome the problem by taking the above measures.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I acquired chemical burn by using neosporin on my penis head. I wash it off daily with softsoap antibacterial hand soap on a daily basis. I then use cortizone to help me deal with the pain. I have used Aloe Vera gel ( which burns severely), Aloe Vera sun burn spray ( which also burns my skin ) and natural Aloe Vera extract. I don t see any relief or positive development. What lotions, cremes, or ointments can I use that won t hurt and also speed up the healing process? It Cortizone the best option for me? Can I use Diaper rash ointments to help with the relief? Please help!

I believe I got a chemical burn on the tip of my penis from the toilet at my workplace! How do I treat, should I see a doctor? It is approximately the size of the tip of my pinky finger, slightly red and irritated skin, no pain, swelling, itching or burning, and no discharge of any kind!
