Penile skin tunnel

Dr. Reed,

What is the best way to manage a penile skin tunnel?  Phil

Dear Phil,

Penile skin tunnels as opposed to penile skin bridges are most commonly seen after a circumcision when sutures are not reabsorbed or removed.  The symptoms include chronic whitish discharge, which is shedding skin and oil produced by the lining of the tunnel.  My recommendation is to unroof the tunnel under local anesthesia.  Please visit our web-site adult-male-circumcision/photographic-examples for before and after pictures of penile skin tunnels and penile skin bridges.
