Hi! I've noticed that some parts on my foreskin are red and irritated for the past 2 weeks and it gets a bit worse after masturbation. It's like the veins are really visible and the skin very thin. I only see it when I pull the skin back, it's on the inside part. I've never had sex before so it can't be an STD. There is no itchiness, pain or burning sensation, actually I feel nothing different, it's only the redness appearance. I stopped masturbating for 7 days now but it doesn't seem to get a lot better. It started after a night in which I masturbated over 3 times and I thought it would heal with time but it didn't. [br>[br>Does anyone know what it could be or if I should just wait longer for it to heal?View Thread
hi! I've paid for a private doctor and I got an appointment this morning. He said it's nothing to worry about, just that the skin is very sensitive and that may happen. Also because I'm uncircumcised and the area may get wet frequently. He prescribed an ointment and it's already getting better and if this thing keeps bothering me for too long I may opt to have surgery, which I don't think will be necessary. Anyway, thanks for your answers!View Thread
I've been using the cream for yeast infection for 4 days now and it doesn't seem to be healed. Today it's been 2 weeks since I last masturbated, so it should have improved by now, right? Sometimes it looks okay but then it gets red again, usually when I wake up, I don't know if it's related to the fact that I get an erection throughout the night but there's no way to avoid it. I also don't know if it's possible that the skin has a different coloration now, but I don't think that's likely, is it? Anyway, I called a urologist to set up an appointment but the only problem is that it's 3 weeks from now so I'm a little bit concerned now.View Thread
