cuts on penis

Feb 8, 2007

I got a cut on the head of my penis from doing up my zipper... what can i do to care for this cut?

Response from Dr. Frascino


You got Sergeant Pepper and the Boys caught in your zipper??? OUCHAMAGOUCHA!!! (Insert total body shiver here.) As for what to do for Mr. Happy, clean the wound with mild soap and water and then apply some over-the-counter antibacterial ointment. If the wound gets red, angry or increasingly painful, see your doctor. One other thing to consider would be button-up 501s!!! Hope your kibble and bits heal quickly!
