Ok. so i cut myself shaving my genitals and now I have 4 lacerations on the shaft of my penis. What should I do? Should I put neosporin on it? How long should it take for my penis to heal?

Thanks

NO! You cannot put antibiotic creams on your genitals! The most you can probably do is use some talcum powder to keep the area dry and prevent chafing.

It will heal the same way you other skin heals provided you don't irritate the area.

You need to be much more careful, but you know that.
