When I was ready to leave the hospital, the nurses had given me a Polysporin type medication to apply to the point where the catheter entered the penis. My urologist, on the last visit in the hospital before I came home, recommended using regular KY jelly. It is, unlike the Polysporin type medication, water soluble. I can tell you that, on those days when my penis was really chafed and irritated by the catheter, the KY jelly was fantastic! Give it a try! It worked for me. God Bless and good luck
