    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
