My partner has an odd circumsion scar, what can we do to minimize irritation?

So, this is awkward and since I haven't seen all that many naked men, I hope that this question makes some kind of sense. My boyfriend has a kind of knot of scar tissue just a little bit below the glans. It looks like maybe the circumsion left a little too much tissue.
As he get erect, most of it stretches out and looks normal, but that little knot sometimes has to be stretched out, massaged a bit to be comfortable. A while back, a little bit of it tore and it is having a hard time healing, there is a little hole there. :(
He is in his early 30's, circumsised as a newborn, and its always been there, but this is the first time its really been an issue, probably because we have lots of awesome sex. Using a ton of lube works ok, though we don't like it very much, the only thing that really helps is leaving it alone for days at a time, which is really not ideal.
So the questions: Has anyone else seen this? How have you coped with it? Is surgery that can nip that little bit and release the skin a bit more a good idea?
