red spot on head of penis

Yesterday i had sunscreen on my hand and then i went to the bathroom of course rubbing my hand all over my penis.  Then a few minutes later my penis started to burn like i put icy hot in my pants.  Well after about 5-10 minutes of the burning it quit.  Well today i was looking down there and noticed a red spot on the head of my penis.  Do you think the sunblock could have irritated the skin down there?  This has never happened until i did that.

so you've masturbated with the same type of sunblock before this time, right? unless you've had unprotected sex or even sexual contact of any sort with in 3 months prior to the incident with an infected partner or other reason to believe than it sounds like just irritation. if it doesn't clear up with in a week or more, you might wanna post other symptoms to see if they relate to an STD or herpes.

No i put sunblock on then went to the bathroom.  I had to touch my penis to pee.

Different type of sunblock you've used before? If so, than you might just have an allergic reaction to an ingredient that your genitial area is sensitive to. And how often have you applied sunblock in general? Are there any other notable symptoms or reason to believe that it could be an STD?

Well I have never accidentally rubber sunblock down there before and it is very sensitive down there, so i didnt know.  I haven't had any other notable symptoms.  I know sunblock can irritate little kids skin because their skin is so sensitive.

than it totally sounds like irritation caused by the sunblock, if it doesn't clear up however, than i would seek medical attention, maybe it'll need some sort of oitment (spelling) to sooth the skin
