Can falling asleep in a bathing suit cause irritation/redness?

Last night I fell asleep in my bathing suit and I woke up on my stomach this morning. I went to the bathroom and  as I was urinating I felt some discomfort around my glans. The discomfort is external so I looked at my skin and there Is a slight red color underneath my urethra and a little purple in the middle(this could possibly be a vein) .I took a urine analysis test last week and tested negative for any STDs. Could this be from the swimsuit? I also masturbated a few times prior to bed the night before. I can upload a picture if necessary.

By the way, I was not swimming. I just wear them around the house sometimes.

If the swimsuit wasn't wet, it was probably just irritation from the fabric.  If it was wet or you got really sweaty, it could lead to a fungal infection, but there are over-the-counter creams for that.  You'll know if that happens because it will itch a lot.

More likely just irritation, though.  Give it a break for a few days and see if it goes away. (and please do not upload pictures of your genitals here - it's not allowed.)

Maybe, that irritation and redness due to the harsh fabric. You can apply any skin allergic lotion into it. If you are feeling a severe problem, you must visit a dermalogiost.
