Well...last night I spilled hot water (nearly boiling) on to my lap. I went to the ER and was told I have a second degree burn on my left leg. I I got a cream and Tylenol with codeine. I woke up this morning and looked down while putting on the lotion...well my penis looks slightly charred on the top of the shaft. As well as a small amount on top of the testicles. I really do not want to have to go to the hospital again...embarrasing. What could happen?? I am extremely worried and just need some answers on what to do and what could happen to me. I am the most worried about my testicles...could this stop me from having children?
Please help...

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

What you have got on tip of penis and over scrotum is almost certainly superficial and should have no long-term ill-effects whatsoever.
