How to treat tight frenulum?

Hi my doctor advised me to use moisturiser on my frenulum as well as the Daktakort he prescribed, for treating a tight frenulum and I was wondering if sudocrem would be good enough as I have that readily available or is there another brand/product which would be better?

Hi.
As per your case history of tight frenulum, my treatment advice is -
1. Do regular exercise of retracting the prepuce skin.
2. Apply a tacrolimus 0.03 % ointment twice daily on it.
3. Other treatment options are topical steroid and circumscion done by a dermato-surgeon.

Thanks.

I have a torn frenulum, while having sex with my girlfriend. This happened recently. I have had sex with her before too, but it did not happen then. But recently, some two weeks back when it happened, I took rest for two weeks and when we tried again it started to bleed. any cure for this?

I used to have a bracket on one of my molar teeth with a hook for a rubber band for invisalign treatment. Two years ago when I was performing oral sex on my boyfriend, his frenulum got caguht on the hook. It took me about 30-60 seconds to get it off. He did not break but it tore and was bleeding. He was in a great deal of pain. Based on all of my research online it seemed like it would heal up on its own and be fine. However it is still an issue to this day. He has lots of pain with insertion durring sex and cannot mastrubate more than once in a day or have sex for very long without having alot of pain and discomfort. This has not only caused physical discomfort but it has caused him to be depressed and have low self esteem and less of a will to live he still resents me for it. We rarely have sex anymore. He refuses to see a doctor because he is pretty sure the only option is surgery to either repair the frenulum or have a full on circumcsion. He refuses to have surgery in his most sensitive area and says that the most he would do to treat it is an ointment. I would like to know what the options are before making any assumptions, but I have a feeling he may be right. Are there any options other than surgery?

Hello Doctor, I got my penile frenulum torn last week(9/3/2015). I got lot of beeding and pieces of my frenulum came off. Once i cleaned my penis, i went to sleep. In the morning, there was little blood beeding in my underwear but it was very very little. After that till now, i never got bleeding but soreness is there. Pain was initially there but that is also getting better. Now I dont have pain when i urinate and no bleeding. But I am still worried because the pieces of frenulum not there. In the two pieces, the bottom piece is hanging and the top piece is still there and i could see a line kind of. I checked my erection and it is not disturbed. Till now i didnt put any kind of ointment over there. Just keeping it dry after every day s bath. Do i need some surgery to rectify this? Will I get any problem in my future during intercourse since the porting of it came off away(i saw thread like tissue when it ripped and threw it off since it was detached)? How will it take to heal? What problems will arise if it is not treated and unstitched(if i dont or need not go for stitching operation)? My big concern is little pieces came off. Please help me on clarifying these questions.

xThis may sound stupid, however, I am extremely worried. I am a teenager and as one does, I decided to 'experiment' with various methods of masturbation. However, today once I had finished I noticed there was bleeding on the head of the penis, not out of the urethra. The frenulum was bleeding as were a part of the head of the penis, (the glands from what I've gathered from diagrams). Straight after noticing it I washed the cut with water, before applying both soap and water. In total I've washed it around 4 times today, yet when I pulled down my foreskin earlier there was a goo on both of the bled areas (puss?). What should I do, I am getting seriously worried, should I see a doctor, is it infected or is it a mere cut? Thanks

A while back a tore my frenulum during intercourse, i have had sex since and it was sore but not as bad, the first time it happened (tore) i had a sharp pain but carried on only to notice what had happened when i saw a small amount of blood in the semen in the condom and there was no more blood only soreness, i can retract my foreskin fully but can be sore if i did it whilst erect, i can see no scarring but looks healed and the tear looks to have rejoined, help please as i am insecure in-case it happens again.

I have a question about the penis frenulum . During sex the frenulum ripped and cause bleeding. Now it's no longer attached to the urethra . Will the frenulum heal and grow back to its normal state? Will this make it harder for me to ejaculate?
