Doctor :   hi
User :   hi Doctor
Doctor :   how can I help you?
User :   sorry to bother you again
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   plz continue with your query
User :   when I masturbated yesterday
Doctor :   ok
User :   I used my hand to hold the shaft of the penis
User :   I did squeeze a little but not really hard
User :   and applied some light strokes
User :   however, this morning I found out that there seems to be some tiny bumps in the middle of the shaft
User :   and it looks like there is a blood vessel or artery that is somewhat visible on the skin
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   penile erection is because of blood vessels only
User :   and the tiny bumps are more visible when my penis is erect
User :   can just holding the shaft and applying light strokes cause this?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   thoso tiny bumps are at the front part of shaft or the entire shaft
User :   just the front
Doctor :   ok
User :   for example, when I am looking down at my penis
User :   and it looks like they are very close to a blood vessel that has become visible now
User :   to the skin
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   those may be the glands
Doctor :   if they are in the front part only
User :   is my masturbation technique wrong or not safe?
User :   I'm just holding the shaft when it becomes erect and applying some light strokes
User :   I did squeeze the shaft a little but not really hard
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   i think its the best way
User :   but it seems like this way has caused the tiny bumps and the blood vessel to appear
Doctor :   penis is full of blood vessels and whenever you will apply even some light pressure the will be visible
Doctor :   it is quiet normal condition
Doctor :   regarding the bumps
Doctor :   the glands in the way of vessels will also be visible
User :   but it seems like they are also somewhat visible when my penis is not erect
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   because there is some amount of blood remains in the vessels
User :   do you think that this was caused by my masturbation technique?
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   inmy opinion it is normal
User :   ok
User :   so if I just hold the shaft and apply some light strokes, this is a safe way?
User :   this will not cause any damage
Doctor :   yes
User :   is it okay to squeeze the shaft a little?
User :   not too hard
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   it is safe
User :   regarding the bumps, I am very sure it is not STD
User :   and they are around the middle of the shaft
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   I can understand your concern
Doctor :   but in my opinion it is quiet normal
User :   ok
User :   sorry I am just so paranoid
User :   especially after what happened to my penis head
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   I can understand your concern
Doctor :   but dont worry
Doctor :   it will all be fine
User :   will applying the strokes loosen the skin of the shaft?
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   you can apply the light strokes
User :   ok
User :   I really wish that I can overcome masturbation
User :   but it seems like my body is addicted
Doctor :   you can control it
User :   yes I tried to resist it as long as possible
User :   but after a while, my body will feel awkward and uneasy
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes
Doctor :   it will take some time try harder
User :   it seems like after a while, if I do not ejaculate, my body will feel uncomfortable, uneasy
User :   even though my mind says no
Doctor :   generally after how much time?
User :   right now maybe 5 days
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then
Doctor :   it is normal
Doctor :   you may continue
Doctor :   this routine
User :   but at the same I am so afraid that I will damage my penis when I masturbate
User :   I damaged my penis head during masturbation
User :   because I rubbed it too hard
Doctor :   ok
User :   and it is in pretty bad shape
User :   right now
Doctor :   always take care and do light strokes
User :   are there medication that will reduce the urge?
Doctor :   i think that your frequency is quiet normal
User :   before I masturbated very frequently
User :   sometimes even once a day
Doctor :   ok
User :   and then I got into trouble
Doctor :   but it is not something addiction
Doctor :   one can control
Doctor :   himself
Doctor :   divert your attention to some creative work and it is all done
User :   yes
User :   I think the problem right now is the body. I can tell my mind to stay away from those
User :   but my body
Doctor :   ok
User :   after a while
Doctor :   all you need is to reschedule your routine
User :   will want to ejaculate
Doctor :   ok
User :   or else my body will feel uneasy
Doctor :   if it is after few days then it is normal
Doctor :   all men have this phenomenon
User :   yes
User :   I am getting very tired of this, and also very scared as well
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   why scared?
Doctor :   it is normal phenomenon of the body
User :   because I am really afraid that one day I might injure myself
Doctor :   and it will decrease gradually with the age
Doctor :   no
User :   because this is what happened 2 and half months ago
Doctor :   the people who are masturbating in right way have never faced any injury
User :   I rubbed my penis head too hard against my underwear
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes I don't know what I was thinking
Doctor :   that was tha faulty technique
User :   and I have damaged it
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   i can understand your concern
User :   the skin is severely inflammed and irritated
Doctor :   yes
User :   and I'm still having pain and burning sensations right now
Doctor :   it will take some time to heal up completely
User :   yes
User :   and there are two deep wrinkles that formed
Doctor :   ok
User :   besides the opening of the urethrea
User :   yes, it looks pretty bad right now
User :   I am really devastated and cannot forgive myself
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   they will heal
User :   I wish so much that I can go back and change what I did
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   i can understand you
User :   and to tell you the truth
User :   sometimes I feel like I just can't take it anymore
Doctor :   but you need to wait
Doctor :   thats the only best thing
User :   and sometimes I even wonder is it possible to get a new penis?
Doctor :   it is difficult
User :   because I feel like the only way for me to get out of this is if there is a way to restore everything back to the way it was originally
Doctor :   ok
User :   or else every day I will have a big burden on me
User :   and every day I cannot forgive myself
Doctor :   in my opinion you can wait for some more months before taking such a big decision
User :   ok
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
User :   thank you very much for your help
User :   I really appreciate it
Doctor :   Have you filled the feedback form?

User :   bye bye
Doctor :   hi
User :   I just took another look at it
User :   there seems to be many more bumps now
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   they are hard or soft in consistency?
User :   I can't really tell but they are tiny
User :   tiny bumps
Doctor :   ok
User :   and I really believe that this is the result of the masturbation
User :   because I don't think there are that many there before
Doctor :   dont worry they are just the glands which will secrete the sebum
Doctor :   all have those in their shaft
Doctor :   during the erection they are more visible
Doctor :   but they can be seen anytime
User :   yes but they are quite visible now even in the non erect state
Doctor :   yes
User :   and there are a lot of them now
Doctor :   sometime it may happen
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   it is normal body phenomenon
User :   like maybe around 10
Doctor :   it is pretty normal
User :   will they go away?
Doctor :   they will be there
Doctor :   but it is possible that sometimes you will not be able to see them
User :   to be honest, I actually masturbated again today
Doctor :   ok
User :   and I think that's why there's an increase in these bumps now
User :   yesterday there weren't that many
Doctor :   these bumps usually secrete sebum
Doctor :   so dont worry
Doctor :   it is normal
User :   but how is this associated with masturbation?
User :   because I really believe that since I have used that masturbation technique these bumps have appeared
Doctor :   sebum is secreted for lubrication during strokes
User :   ok
User :   so maybe stroking is bad
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   as the penis requires lubrication
Doctor :   so in an attempt to secrete more sebum and to produce more they are little evident to you
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   they will subside
User :   so eventually they will go away? because right now there's about 10 that is visible even in the non erect state
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   they will reduce
User :   because it seems like every time I masturbate, more will show up
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   they will subside in day or two
User :   ok, so they will fade away?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   definitely
User :   completely?
Doctor :   when they will have enough sebum store
Doctor :   may be completely
Doctor :   but why are you worried they are normal
User :   because they are very visible now even in the non erect state
User :   about 10 bumps
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   its normal
User :   yesterday after I masturbated, I noticed that there's about 3 bumps
Doctor :   ok
User :   so today I thought that I will to see them more clearly in the erect state
User :   but then I ended up masturbating again
Doctor :   ok
User :   and then right now I have noticed that there are about 10 bumps
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   dont worry they will subside soon
User :   did you say that this was caused by the stroking action on the shaft?
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   it is normal
Doctor :   glands will produce the sebum
Doctor :   so sometimes you may notice them
User :   but I do feel like that they become much more visible after masturbation
User :   and the number increased too
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   they will be more evident when they will have to prepare more sebum since you masturbated on two occassions so they are more visible
User :   so probably should stay away from masturbation for a while?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   for few days
User :   what is the purpose of sebum?
Doctor :   to provide lubrication
User :   for the inside of the penis?
Doctor :   yes between skin and shaft
User :   ok
User :   so is this because of the contact I had with my hand and the shaft?
Doctor :   yes
User :   ok
User :   but I think the bumps are actually not in the areas where my hand was touching the shaft
User :   the bumps are located in the lower part
Doctor :   because of the contact more lubrication is needed and due to which more sebum is produced
User :   I see
User :   so these bumps will eventually go away?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   definitely
User :   2 to 3 days?
Doctor :   may be some will disappear
User :   what happens if they don't disappear?
Doctor :   nothing
Doctor :   they are normal
User :   so it is possible that the bumps will not disappear
Doctor :   sometimes
Doctor :   but generally they will disappear and then again appear
User :   I see
User :   generally they will disappear but appear again when lubrication is needed again
Doctor :   yes
User :   so the best thing to do now is stay away from masturbation and let the bumps finish what they are doing
Doctor :   yes
User :   perhaps this is not the best masturbation technique?
User :   there are some side effects
Doctor :   inevery technique they will follow
Doctor :   it is normal phenomenon
Doctor :   otherwise there will be no lubrication
User :   so every technique will cause these bumps to appear?
Doctor :   yes
User :   oh really?
User :   I'm afraid maybe the bumps will not disappear
Doctor :   dont be worried
Doctor :   bumps are normal
User :   but I think before I didn't have these bumps
User :   when I masturbated using the penis head
Doctor :   you have never noticed them
User :   ok
User :   for some reason they are much more visible when I used the hand to the shaft and stroke technique
Doctor :   they are normally in penis
User :   if for some reason they do not disappear, are there any ways to get rid of them?
Doctor :   but they are normal
Doctor :   you want to distort your normal structur?
User :   because I don't think I have that many bumps before
User :   and they are not very noticeable before
Doctor :   but they were there
Doctor :   and will not remain noticeable for long
Doctor :   and after removing them completely you will lose your natural lubrication
User :   ok
User :   so these bumps will eventually fade away
Doctor :   so accept them as part of your body
User :   disappear
Doctor :   yues
Doctor :   yes
User :   I'm sorry
User :   I have become so paranoid about everything now
Doctor :   dont be worried
User :   is it possible to perform cosmetic surgery on the penis head?
Doctor :   for what?
User :   to replace the inflammed and irritated skin?
Doctor :   only dead skin is removed
User :   right now it looks awful
Doctor :   will be alright with time
User :   how much longer do you think will be needed for complete healing? it has been 2 and half months already
Doctor :   it may take one more month if no further irritation is there otherwise it may extend
Doctor :   healing
User :   I see
User :   any ways to get rid of the wrinkle?
User :   on the penis head
Doctor :   naturally they will
Doctor :   take some time to heal up
User :   I see
User :   there are two deep wrinkles besides the meatus
User :   right now
Doctor :   ok
User :   I'm really tired with all of these problems
User :   it has taken over my life
Doctor :   dont worry
User :   sometimes I wish that if it is possible to get a new penis and start all over
Doctor :   its better to wait
Doctor :   and let the nature do its best
User :   ok
User :   thank you very much for your help
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
User :   done
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   that's it
