Hi. I am a male 24 years old and I have a condition on my male private part. I have a dry and peeling skin on my penis. Before this, I have a small wound on it because of friction due to long walking in tight jeans and causes wound to the skin. I already went to general clinic for consultation but the dr said its normal and gave me white normal cream for it. After applying , it becomes moist and healthy but after wash it, became dry and peeling skin again. How do I solve this condition permanently?

Hello and good night
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worry about your problem. I will try to help you.

For your information, there are some tips that you can practice to solve your problem. They are:

  • using a mild cleanser, or only water, instead of soap to wash the penis
  • drying your penis properly after washing
  • using products designed for sensitive skin on the genital area
  • using hypoallergenic laundry products on your clothes
  • wearing soft, loose-fitting cotton underwear, and loose clothes
  • drinking plenty of water to keep your body hydrated
  • applying a penis-specific moisturizer after showers and baths

Therefore, I advise you to refer to a doctor for a proper treatment. You can also have an online consultation with our doctors for more information and further treatments.

I hope this answer will help you. Thank you.
