Suggest remedy for burning sensation on the penis shaft

Posted on Thu, 11 Jun 2015 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: while masterbating a welt appeared under the shaft area of the penis and it gave a burning sensation. after examining the area and pressed on the skin part under the shaft, it looked like a welt starting to appear, so I stopped. What could it be and is there something I could apply that might fix this problem

Brief answer....could be due to friction if There is no previous history of any allergy or hives or welts
Detailed answer...
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
To me it appears to be due to the result of frictional heat generated during masturbation.
A hard or violent masturbation can cause this problem.
Just apply local hydrocortisone oint 2-3 times a day.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
