Can a Penile Scrotal Web Be Treated With Medication?

Dear Dr. Reed,  I think I have developed a penile-scrotal web and is there any medication you could propose to revert it back to normal?  A vacuum erection device has not been helpful.



Dear Rodney,

A vacuum erection device at best will stretch your skin, but I don’t see that as providing additional skin so the angulation will recede off your penis.  If the peno-scrotal web is something you have noted recently, it could be secondary to gaining weight.  Some uncircumcised men also have a penile-scrotal web as this area is a transitional zone.  It can also be secondary to an overzealous or an overly aggressive circumcision and examples of that can be found on our web-site

Hope you like what you see and Happy Holidays,
