Cuts on penis.

I have never had sex before, but I do masterbate a lot. I am starting to see thin cuts on my penis. Could this be from not using lubrication? What should I do?

Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but this swelling can be due to friction rub or chaffing. Chafing is a continuous rubbing of the skin that causes redness or soreness.

Chafing occurs when the skin becomes irritated by the friction caused by rubbing – either against other skin or against a foreign material. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.Also wear cotton undergarments.Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful.If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.Kind regards.

I am in the same situation. I also have red shiny spots underneath the head of my penis that become more and more irritated after masturbation. This has been going on for over a year but it is difficult to withdrawal from masturbating. How can I speed up the healing process?
