Scratch on tip of penis passing a kidney stone not healing

Resolved Question:

I have had a scratch on the tip of my penis for over a year. It was caused by passing a kidney stone. Urologist said it will heal on own.
Primary care doctor gave me bactroban and it works for awhile but doesn't heal it. I've tried neosporin bactroban and triple antibiotic ointments
Does anyone here know how to heal a small scratch on tip of penis

Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.

I can understand your concern.

I would like to request you to send me a picture if possible.


Patient replied :

here is picture, not very good but hopefully you can see ok


Thanks for the picture.
It looks like a scar, a scar is a change in tissue which is not easily reversible.
I would recommend you try application of poly-silicon gel on it. It may resolve after a few weeks of application, but not completely.

Usually scars don't resolve so easily. Most of the times its an irreversible change.

Take care.

Patient replied :

Where would I get this poly silicon gel?


Thanks for your reply.

You will need to get a prescription from your doctor for it.
