Question: red/pink sores after masturbating on undershaft of penis


 rutherford - Wed Jul 21, 2010 1:50 pm

I masturbate once a day with hand lotion. Usualy I don't wash myself after. Today after masturbating 4 red/pink sores came out. Mild itching involved, no pain. Sores formed on the under part of my shaft where most friction occours. What do you think?

User avatar Hello,Masturbation perse is a safe procedure,provided you do not overdo it.The problem of friction and irritation lead to these problems.I assume that you do not have a history of exposure to STDs, since sometimes conditions develop after a period of incubation period.
Cleansing with mild soap and waterand application of vaseline should suffice.If it persists do consult your doctor.
Best wishes.
