Re: Numerous cuts around the urethra.
You've probubly exherted too much pressure and/or caused excessive friction around the foreskin. Body washes and gels shoud be ok unless you are sensitive to it. I hope you are not using the anti-bacterial hand washing type soap as it is much harsher. You should always use some type of lube, either a hypoallergenic lotion or, water based or silicone products availible commercially, especially around the head and forskin. You can use neosporin or store brand triple antibiotic ointment preferably over the cream formula since the ointment will not rub in leaving a greasy film over the head that will better protect the area between applications. If you can, use the ointment after each urination the first day or two then 3 times daily afterwards for another 2-3 days you should be ok. But, again if you see no improvement or gets worse, do see a Dr.
