Question
Hello. I have a very quick question. I believe i tore off part of the mucous membrane of my penis shaft/head. My question is, does it regrow on its own? Is there anything I can do to speed the process or help in any way? Lastly, if it does regrow, how long does it typically take?

Answer
Are you talking about the foreskin of your penis or the frenulum. In either case it may grow back. If the skin has a bad tear you should of had stitches. There is a topical medication used for acne called Acanya that helps wounds heal. Your dermatologist may have samples. Time to heal depends on the wound size which can be weeks to months.
