Dr. Reed, Have a Penile Bridge or Tunnel where I had an circumcision with many years ago and it continually sheds dirt. Speculating, perhaps the sutures which were never removed caused this. They have never been infected, but the stuff I squeeze out of them is whitish and smells terrible. Could this produce an infection in my girlfriend?
We have collected many photos of Penile Skin Bridges or Penile Skin Tunnels over the years. Simply they need to be unroofed and surprisingly in all cases we have done, the skin is normal underneath. Usually the area heals imperceptibly. Take a look at some of these before and after photos from our web-site penisdoctor.com/before-after-adult-circumcision/ examples #16 and #17. Somnetimes skin bridges are a variant of penile adhesions or penile synechia and again the treatment is fairly simple. Unroof the adhesions, and in this case of synechia apply an antibiotic ointment until the skin re-epithelializes. The discharge is called smegma which is a continuing output of shedding penile skin and oils normally cleansed with daily hygiene. But in your case, retained inside the penile tunnel.
