Doctor :   hi
User :   hi Doctor
Doctor :   how can i helpu
User :   can I ask you about a sensitive topic?
Doctor :   please proceed with your query
User :   it seems I cannot resist masturbating
Doctor :   ook
User :   but I have already damaged my penis head
User :   by rubbing too hard
Doctor :   has the penile ulcer and inflamation subsided
User :   the inflammation seems to still be there
User :   as the skin still at time looks irritated
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   yu are not masturbating still
User :   yes I have
User :   todauy
User :   today
User :   but I did not touch that area
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then its not an problem
User :   what I did was when my penis has full erection, I just used my hand to hold the shaft of the penis and that seemed to cause ejaculation
User :   is this a safe way to masturbate?
User :   because I really don't want to cause any more injuries
Doctor :   yes by this way u can really prevent the damage
User :   I did move my hand a little when I was holding the penis (light strokes). will this loosen the skin?
Doctor :   light strokes are ok
Doctor :   this will not loosen the skin
User :   but you know, by just holding the penis when in erection causes ejaculation rather quickly
Doctor :   thats correct
User :   so this is okay and safe? I am afraid to damage something
Doctor :   no this is safe and this will not damage or loosen the skin
User :   I'm sorry I'm just so paranoid right now after what I did to my penis head
Doctor :   nothing to worry
Doctor :   i can understand your problem
User :   it seems like my penis head has not fully recovered yet
User :   after two and a half months
User :   and sometimes I feel tingling and vibration on the tip
Doctor :   the use of lubricants can also help u to reduce the damage to the penis
User :   ok
Doctor :   Lubricants are best used for masturbation. It will make things slide in easier and your parts will be slicker.
User :   right
User :   but I think from now on, I will try not to touch it as much as possible
Doctor :   yes yu can masturbate but it should be gentle
User :   yes
Doctor :   and it shoukd not be done frequently
User :   yes
User :   I will try to avoid it as much as possible
Doctor :   Stroke only your shaft, ignoring the head, which will swell and turn red.
User :   okay
User :   do you know of any other safe and gentle techniques?
Doctor :   i will help u in this
User :   because right now touching the penis makes me kind of paranoid too
User :   I'm just so afraid I will cause damage
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Lube up and use both hands at once in a pumping motion along your shaft.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Astroglide's water-soluble formula makes it greaseless, odorless, long lasting, slippery
User :   ok
User :   so the key is not to cause too much friction
Doctor :   Vaseline brand petroleum jelly is relatively safe for the skin, but not really recommended for masturbation. It is a mess.
User :   right
Doctor :   even with out the lubricants also masturbation
Doctor :   can be done
Doctor :   but is should be gentle
Doctor :   involving the shaft only not the penile head
User :   sorry, I will be right back
Doctor :   ok no problem
User :   sorry about that
User :   so I should not touch the penis head at all
User :   during masturbatoin
User :   masturbation
Doctor :   yes you are correct
User :   after masturbating frequently before, I feel like now it is hard for me to ejaculate without some outside help
Doctor :   yu mean yu need and assistance
User :   for example, if I don't touch my penis at all and just let it go to erection
User :   it will be erect but will not ejaculate
User :   unless I hold my hand around the shaft
Doctor :   yes but the shaft of th penis can be held
Doctor :   and a gentle stroke can be given
User :   okay
User :   I feel like if my hand is holding the shaft, the contact between the hand and the shaft automatically triggers something
User :   and goes to ejaculation
Doctor :   ya this can be followed
User :   I was very stupid before
User :   I rubbed my penis head against my underwear too hard
User :   and this has caused two deep wrinkles on the penis head
Doctor :   yes i know this but not to worrry
User :   you know, sometimes I get tingling and vibration on the tip of my penis head
Doctor :   even if u dont touch also
User :   yes even if I don't touch it
Doctor :   does it appear suddenly
User :   yes
Doctor :   for how long does it stay
User :   suddenly
User :   couple of seconds
User :   it appears more frequently at night time
Doctor :   does the tingling sensation is asso with pain
Doctor :   numbness
User :   not so much pain, maybe a little but it usually goes away in a few seconds
User :   no numbness
User :   the vibration and shaking will last for a few seconds
Doctor :   even during masturbation yu get it
User :   yes I think when my penis is more erect it appears more often
Doctor :   yes this can happen as its a part and parcel of infalmataion and healing
Doctor :   it can be due to erection
User :   do you think I might have damaged the nerves inside?
Doctor :   as you are touching the penie tip
Doctor :   no nerve damage is not the problem
Doctor :   due to swelling and imflamation slightly the nerve may be compressed
User :   ok
Doctor :   not to worry
User :   so it is part of the healing process
Doctor :   i will assure its not nerve damage
User :   ok
User :   another thing is that I feel that sometimes when I am sitting down, my groin and butt area will have some pain too
Doctor :   ok
User :   and sometimes feel that it kind of extends to my feet
Doctor :   let me some Q regarding this
User :   ok
User :   anyway, after the incident, there has been so many problems
User :   that whole area just doesn't feel quite right

User :   no itching

User :   and the pain is on my right side
User :   right groin, butt to right feet
Doctor :   since how many days are facing this problem
User :   maybe about one month now
Doctor :   are u on any medications
User :   no
Doctor :   the use of TYLENOL will help
User :   okay
Doctor :   yu can take it 2 times a day for 3-4 days after food
User :   will tylenol cure this problem or just temporary relief?
Doctor :   yes it will help u
Doctor :   i will also guide yu to some exercises
User :   ok
Doctor :   which will help u to relax the muscles of groin and buttock
User :   ok
User :   do you know why problem came with rubbing the penis head?
User :   this problem
Doctor :   no its a differnt problem
User :   ok
Doctor :   its just due to spasm of muscles
User :   I feel like I got this pain after the incident
Doctor :   which is causing the pain
User :   I see\
User :   so they are not related
Doctor :   no they are not realted to each other
User :   I see
User :   for the tylenol, I just need to get the generic Tylenol one?
User :   not the Tylenol Cold
Doctor :   its the plain tylenol
User :   ok
User :   sorry, just one last question
User :   when I rubbed my penis head 2 and a half months ago, there was a cut next to the urethreal opening
Doctor :   please proceed
User :   I think it healed but about one months ago it came back again
Doctor :   i am here to help u
Doctor :   nothling to worry
User :   right now the cut has gotten bigger
User :   it is a red patch right next to the urethreal opening
Doctor :   ok
User :   and sometimes it is very painful
Doctor :   but its towards the stage of healing
User :   yes
User :   I was wondering should I apply anything?
User :   or just let it heal by itself
User :   because it has been 3 weeks
Doctor :   no i can understand the problem u are facing
User :   and no improvements
User :   yes, if not it has gotten worse because I believe the red patch has gotten bigger
User :   and sometimes it is very painful
Doctor :   did yu have an appointment with dermatologist
User :   yes
User :   he did not prescribe anything
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   its better not to apply any thing
User :   oh really?
Doctor :   because i am worreid about allergy to the medicaions
User :   ok
User :   that's true
Doctor :   the condition can become worsen
User :   not even Neosporin?
Doctor :   are yu still using moisturizer
User :   no
Doctor :   Neosporin is an antiseptic
User :   I have heard some people say that Neosporin can help the healing process?
User :   plus I think they have one where it has pain relief
Doctor :   yes neosporin will help
User :   yes but at the same time I'm also afraid that my skin might have an allergic reaction
User :   like what happened with Oxistat
User :   so it's a dilemma
User :   and the problem is that the pain is excruciating sometimes
User :   especially when I'm outside
User :   where I cannot wear anything loose
Doctor :   \but neosporin is an antiseptic
Doctor :   it will help u to heal the wond
Doctor :   its better u start for a small areas
User :   ok
User :   so you think it is okay to apply Neosporin?
User :   I believe they also have one with pain relief
Doctor :   i am sorry for the delay
User :   no problem
Doctor :   yes neosporin will help u reduce the further infection
Doctor :   and also in wound healing
Doctor :   usually there would be no reactiosn
User :   will taking Tylenol help ease the pain also? just a guess
Doctor :   yes u can take
Doctor :   it works for both ulcer pain for penis and even for groin and buttock pain
User :   ok
User :   maybe I will take Tylenol first
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   because it circulates throughout the body?
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
User :   thank you very much for your help and support
Doctor :   yes it circlates in the blood
User :   I see
User :   I really appreciate it
Doctor :   thats the reason helps for both pains
User :   right
Doctor :   thank u
