Doctor :   do you wear very tight innerwear?

Doctor :   it can be due to tight innerwear or detergents that you use for bathing

Doctor :   and for pain u can take 1 pain killer tablet
Doctor :   and the other cause can be a skin infections or disorders
Doctor :   i don't think there are any such probabilities in your case
User :   I am pretty sure it can from the rubbing against the underwear during masturbation yesterday
User :   as I had no pain in that area before
Doctor :   and also avoid sexual contact as it is a potential breeding ground for infections
Doctor :   for a day or 2
Doctor :   till the pain subsides
User :   if the skin is irritated due to rubbing, is there anything we can apply to soothe the skin?
Doctor :   nothing you can apply
User :   ok
Doctor :   as it is very sensitive the cosmetics irritate the skin much more
User :   so just let it heal by itself?
Doctor :   and avoid skin irritation
Doctor :   it will be better by a day or 2
Doctor :   ya
User :   I have another question
User :   since right now I'm so afraid to touch my penis
User :   for masturbation, is it okay and safe to move our hip and butt I guess in an up and down motion to cause stimulation?
User :   while sitting in a chair
Doctor :   1 day or 2 it will be alright
Doctor :   ya until and unless u don't irritate the skin directly its k
Doctor :   u can try other methods
User :   because it seems like this is the only method in which my hands does not have to actually touch the penis
Doctor :   ya its a good method
User :   so it is safe to stimulate by moving our hip and butt up and down while sitting in a chair?
Doctor :   ya
User :   because I'm so afraid to cause more damage
Doctor :   is there anything else that i can help you
User :   do you know of any other methods which does not involve touching the penis?
Doctor :   soft stimulation is permitted
Doctor :   u can use any of the methods
Doctor :   even in hand but should be a gentle touch
User :   right
User :   because I'm really afraid to touch the penis right now, seems like I will cause more damage
Doctor :   if you touch it gently it won't cause any damage
User :   moving the hip and butt is okay, but it takes a while and all the muscles are so tired afterwards
Doctor :   ya it happens
Doctor :   usually only the hand muscles get tired
User :   and I'm so afraid to loosen the skin of the shaft if I use my hands to stimulate
Doctor :   in this case most of the muscles are involved na so
User :   ok

Doctor :   Queries?
Doctor :   that i can assist you with?

Doctor :   I have to close this window since there is no response from your side, please get back to us if you need further medical advice.
User :   sorry Doctor
User :   can I ask you another question?
Doctor :   sure
User :   it appears that my skin around my shaft has become more loose and wrinkled
User :   are there any ways to tighten the skin?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   well u can surgically excise the extra skin if it bothers uthat much
User :   ok
User :   any non-surgical methods?
Doctor :   none which can permanently do the trick for u
User :   the thing is previously I was masturbating using the hand to the shaft and applying strokes technique
Doctor :   i know
User :   and this caused the loose skin
User :   why would this cause the loose skin?
User :   well, I was more like squeezing the shaft gently and moving up and down
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes but very gentle
Doctor :   very much but u damaged it
User :   and this still caused the loose skin
User :   so that's why I am afraid to touch the penis right now
User :   for masturbation
Doctor :   good thats exactly what u want right now some healing willl take place
User :   so you think maybe the loosened skin will go back to normal?
Doctor :   i hope so but i am not sure whether the exact texture wil be reproduced

User :   yes
User :   they are much more apparent at the top
User :   between the penis glans
User :   that area
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes
User :   for some reason
User :   that area has become very wrinkly
User :   the part that is below the meatus
User :   and between the penis glans
Doctor :   ok
User :   so you think maybe give it some rest and it might go back to normal?
User :   stay away from masturbation
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   definetly
User :   I think it might be pretty hard, because when it is in the non erect state, it is very much wrinkled
Doctor :   yes
User :   why is it so easy to cause to the skin to become loose and wrinkled?
Doctor :   cause that area is coverd by transitional epitheliun in some parts
Doctor :   they have to modify themselves
Doctor :   to a point
