Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is very unusual to have a ring of skin around the penis especially if you have been circumsized. The only possibility that comes to mind is that it is remnant of the foreskin. In circumcision there is partial or complete removal of the foreskin. However it is very difficult to tell for sure without examination. Please consult your family doctor about it. Take care!

Penis skin tears can be due to dry skin, chafing or friction rub, eczema, psoriasis or lichen sclerosus of the penis. Keep the area well moisturized and wear cotton underwear. Also apply an antibiotic cream like Neosporin on the skin that has already chafed.
