best ointment for a scarred frenulum?September 25 2008 at 11:22 AM

Hi, I've had bleeding from my penis during sex twice. On both occasions there was lots of blood (scary) but no pain. My best guess is that it was a torn frenulum. (Can a tear in the foreskin produce that much blood too?)
I can retract my foreskin without too much difficulty and I do not think I have a frenulum breve. However, I notice that the tissue around my frenulum is reddened. So I think this scar tissue is a problem and I'm worried that I'll have the same bleeding in future.
A urologist said I likely had a fungal infection in this area and recommended circumcision. I'd prefer to avoid it. Maybe if I can fix this scar the rest of my problems will go away. But I think it's been like that for many months, even years.
So I am considering using a topical ointment. If that doesn't work, maybe I'll have to go for a frenuloplasty or worse. But what would be the best thing?
- zinc and castor oil
- something else?
Bear in mind:
1. Needs to be anti-inflammatory
2. Something with anti-fungal action is preferred
3. I don't want to make things worse by thinning the skin too much.
Would love to have a pointer to someone who had an inflamed frenular area and managed to cure it cleanly.

The second item is the correct approach. Actually, any over-the-counter yeast product should work. I suggest getting this yeast thing cleared up before doing what may need to be done. If the frenulum tore, it sounds like it needs some stretching.
How long have you had this problem? Has retraction changed or always been about the same?
Man, I'd hate to see what that doc would do to toes infected with athlete's foot! I wonder too how he'd treat women with the same problem. That was quite an insult to you to suggest you need an amputation of a body part to get rid of something others would use medicine for.
