Hello, Yep, it's embarrassing, but anyway, I have a small white dot at the top of the shaft (in the skin fold part). It hurt when the bulb contacted with it (last night) and turned white, but no pain now. Does it sound like it will heal? Thank you for your help.
This sounds like a mild injury. Did the skin peel off? Is there any swollen or edematous skin in the affected area?
I suggest that you have this assessed by your physician. Refrain from unnecessarily touching the area to prevent any infections. One thing to prevent here is infecting the area which may be encouraged by the disrupted skin. Discuss this with your physician. You may need antimicrobial cream for this.
The area will likely heal. Healing may be delayed if an underlying infection is present
