Hi... This can happen over a period of time following masturbation. However they will not cause any problems in sexual life... You need worry on that.  There are options of surgical correction, but you do not need one... Just take precautionary measures to prevent infection by good personal hygeine.. That al what is required....

i recently had a circumcision at 43, i have had it done for certain partners are more agressive and grab foreskin so hard it tugs frenulum and a noticeable red vein appears which make eredtion painful and i have to abstain for several days until i heal then have to inform partner to touch me gentler...anyway my soft penis is rather small, but erect grows to 7.5 8 inches with a good amount of girth....at least i and my partners were happy. anyway i had circumcision and noticed immediately that underside of my skin below the head was stitched to the testicles...this is causing me difficulty getting erection, and when i do my testicles are all way up the underside of my shaft making penetration difficult, and also size is considerably smaller which is totally frustrating for both me and mygirlfriend...prior to circumcision my testicles were at bottom of my shaft allowing full penetration and also the enjoymeny of testices making contact with my girls butt....help me can this be taken care of? i want my normal size back and to be able to penetrate fully....help me!!

two days ago, while i am taking bath, accidentally some undiluted dettol spilt over my penis. Today afternoon, I found my foreskin and the skin beneath the penis very dry and scaly. It appears that as though it was burnt ... Is it due to the dettol action or is it due to some other infection ?

I had a penis frenuloplasty 4.5 weeks ago and I have a couple of questions. Firstly, there seem to be a couple tiny bumps (skin tissue?) at the top and bottom of the frenulum, is that normal? Secondly, when I pull the foreskin down initially it feels uncomfortable. I think its because the frenulum is a bit tough and it stretches out. Once it stretches out it feels completely fine and comfortable.

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....
