Penis skin that never fully heals


Q: Male 26 yrs. I am have been having trouble with the skin of my penis for well over a year now. It all started with a chemical burn from Nair that was left on a little too long. After oral sex or regular sex, the skin turns very red, has cuts, and looks off color, sometimes it has pussed. Went to the urologist and he said try hydrocortizone cream. if that doesnt work he was talking about a skin graft. I cant handle this sex for one night, and up to 1 week to have the skin on the underside of my penis heal over and over. What are your recommendations? it is not an STD, I have been tested. Thank you.
