Hi Aravind,

Thanks for your query ,

The problem you have are merely due to mechanical effects of masturbation.The cuts you have are caused due to dryness and loose integrity of the mucous membrane of the penile skin.

Do avoid oral sex for some days as you may be prone to various infections as you sustain the cuts after masturbation , which act as the entry door to many infections.

Need not worry there are remedies for the same but you may have to anyway reduce the frequency of masturbation to about twice a week. Which I consider is safe for future too .

Use lubricant jellies like KY jelly during masturbation which will prevent cuts and abrasions .Also take Multivitamin supplements like Capsule COBODEX once a day after food in the morning which will help in maintaining the skin integrity.Do consume good amount of citrus fruits like orange, banana , pineapple etc

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

Dear doctor, thanks a lot for your suggestion , sorry for the late reply as i were in outstation cant reply, i havent tried the medicine u suggested yet, before i wouldlike to send the photo it, here i cant send and attachment, it would be very much helpful if u send ur email address. iam trying to stop masturbating but its little hard for me nw i reduced to twice in a week.. but ill definitely reduce it at the most, iam very much worried of my married life and though i never intercourse with anyone except oral activities with my girl, i XXXXXXX think its a STD and i do worry a little whether it could be. so pls confirm doctor, long back (2009 oct or dec) by frequent masturbation i got a small cut after that by masturbating it started to spread slowly, so then on after masturbating ill be getting some cut with a crack and it itches somtime will get a slight tissue pain and will slowly heals .and i would like to knw whethers COBODEX is safe to use ? will i get any side effect? as i said before i went for VDRL , urine routine and HIV test all were negative, iam worrying a lot and also feel very embarrassed to consult with my local doctor. iam losing my confidence and getting fed up often thinking of this. so kindly send ur mail id do that i shall send the pic for further advive.. pls do the needful

Hello Aravind,

Thanks for following me up.

I still do not consider it to be a STD by any chance, I relate it to be a skin integrity defect.This can be well treated with Multivitmin supplements like Cobodex.The drug is safe and very rare side effects expected.
