Irritated reddish patch of skin on penis. Please.... please help.

Forgive me if I sound melo-dramatic.

A few months ago, while Masturbating, I suddenly felt a sharp pain on my penis, and I noticed a reddish bunch of skin on the shaft, about half way down from the head. It wasn't too abnormal. I had irritated my penis before during masturbation, and it normally went away within a few days.

This time though, although that patch of skin stopped hurting within minutes, and wasn't irritable afterwards, the skin has stayed reddish and somewhat more irritable than the skin around it, for several months. I didn't pay much heed to it and it didn't bother me that much because it didn't hurt or itch or anything, but recently I started thinking "why the hell isn't it gone yet?" So I didn't masturbate for 8 days to see if it would heal, and it didn't. The skin is still reddish in that area. Then I took a shower and the soap really stung on that part of my penis. Something is wrong with that part of skin, and I don't know how I could have caused it. What do I do?

I feel like killing myself right now. I just want it to be back to normal!! Please, help me!!!!!

Firstly, don't kill yourself - it wont heal it!

Have you tried anything on it from hand lotion to any ointments? Maybe a bit of hand lotion / vaseline intensive care would help A: to soothe it, and B: help to normalise the skin.

If this doesn't work you may need to see a doctor. It may be a skin condition completely unrelated to masturbation, check you have nothing else like this on your body too. I doubt it is serious, but can appreciate it would be annoying.

you need to see a dermatologist. nobody can diagnose you over the net.
it could be eczema, psoriasis, a yeast infection, or a host of other things.
whatever it is, it is not worth harming yourself over, and is definitely treatable.

Well, I know it was caused by masturbating.

I have been constantly rubbing it every few days for the past couple months, so I probably shouldn't be surprised that it's still there. Do you think that if I just stopped masturbating and waited long enough it would go away?

I masturbated every day for decades, and never saw anything like that.

I masturbated for several years without seeing anything like it either. Things happen. Your post was not very helpful.

How do I make this patch of reddish skin go back to normal?
