Brief Answer:
Please apply 2 percent lignocaine ointment and reduce masturbation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. Masturbation is a safe sexual practice and should be done in limit. It can be done 2 to 3 times in a week and not more than once daily.

2. Masturbation is done slowly and gently. Doing it fast and violently can injure the soft tissue in penis.

3. The head of penis is most sensitive and probably your pain is from doing too much masturbation.

4. Right now you should avoid masturbation for a week so that any friction injury in the penis heals completely. After that you can do masturbation slowly and gently. It should be done 2 to 3 times in a week.

5. To reduce the hypersensitivity of head of penis you can apply 2 percent lignocaine ointment in small amounts 2 times daily for a week. This will help control the increased sensitivity in the tip of your penis.

Hope your query is answered.
Please do write back if you have any doubts.
