Groin muscles hurting after lifting heavy weights. Groin sore to touch, inflammation in the foreskin. Reason?

My job is phsically demanding a lot of twisting and moving carrying 40 to 50 lbs. I walk 3 miles plus a day at work and run recreationally. I recently started feeling muscles in the groin hurting that usually were subdued by stretching . Two days ago something happened and now the groin area hurts, sore to the touch, and am having inflammation in the foreskin of my penis . I have a fiancé and am sexually active with only her. This injury definitely happened at work. Are these muscles connected, and what could it be?

Thanks for posting your query,
The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain.
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not lift weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for the injury to heal.
Inflammation of foreskin of penis seems not to be connected to this.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
