I was fooling around with my girlfriend pretty rough, afterwards I noticed a little pain. I woke up today and looked down while in the bathroom and noticed a purple mark on the shaft, It clearly looks like a popped blood vessel. Should I be worried ? Will this go away ?
This bruise could be due to trauma which could have caused breakage of capillaries lying just below the surface of penis. Do not cause any further injury till the lesion has healed, which should take about 5-7 days. The discoloration may persist for a fortnight and change colors as the haemoglobin pigment undergoes changes.
Apply warm compresses,Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it.You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.If the spot persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
