I recently tore my urethra hole at the end of my penis. The unfortunate incident was caused by a sexual mishap. It probably increased the hole size by half the original size. It happened over a week ago and remains slightly irritated at the tip. Is this something a urologist can fix? I've been putting neosporin on it and have even tried using liquid band aids at the tear, but b/c I urinate frequently it never has a chance to heal. Any help that can be provided would greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Thanks for responding, BHumika. Just a follow up question, if you don' t mind. Are you saying that the recent tear in my urethra hole, could lead to a urethra stricture? I also wanted to know if there is a procedure to return the urethra hole to its original size and what that procedure might be. Thanks again for your help!
