hey guys, a few weeks back there was some scraping on my penis due to having sexual intercourse with my partner.. it didn't hurt at all, just looked a little tender, so we eased up the the sex and the tender spots began to disappear as i had figured, they're still somewhat there, so before bed at night i had been applying some skin lotion/cream to my penis hoping to speed up the healing process.. i used a different lotion last night, it was an over the counter lotion that was supposed to "replenish and rejuvenate your skin"... i remember it saying it contained collagen if that's any help.. anyways, i applied it to my penis, mainly the foreskin area (i was careful that i didn't get any in the urethra) and went to bed. i woke up this morning and the foreskin on my penis had swelled up, no blisters or anything of the sort, just swollen. i looked on the back of the lotion bottle and it did say "irritation may occur". so i applied some calamine lotion to my penis today and i'm thinking the swelling should go away within the next 24-48 hours.. am i correct in assuming that's what will happen? or will i need to take further steps??

  • ummm..whats up? i went threw the same thing about a year ago. the best thing too do is not try to speed up the healing and let it wait out. trying to speed it up can cause major irratation. just slow down the sex majorly! dont rub your penis into anything just handle it with tender and care and everything should be healed in about a few months. it isnt suppose to take that long exactly but too make sure everything is gone and there is no sign of coming back.
