How are penile adhesions treated?
Most penile adhesions cause no pain or discomfort and resolve on their own.
Penile skin bridges are usually easily separated with a small surgical cut during a clinic visit. Your child’s doctor will apply local anesthetic ointment before the procedure. In some cases, penile bridge separation is done under quick sedation in the operating room.
Most cases of cicatrix can be successfully treated with topical steroid cream. If topical medications don’t work, your child may need a circumcision revision and surgery to correct the trapped penis.
