What causes swelling of frenulum after masturbation?

My frenulum has swollen up after masturbating last night. My foreskin had retracted and became stuck around the head of my penis. I thought that this was natural for people my age and so, I left it like that. This morning I woke up and the tissue around my frenulum had swollen. How do I fix this?!

If you kept your fore skin for a full night there will be swelling. You should always keep your foreskin kept closed when not in use if you are uncircumcised person.

Rough masturbation can cause frenulam swelling after masturbation. Phimosis can cause difficulty in retracting foreskin. Share picture for confirmation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
