Rashes on penis

Resolved Question:

I am 23 year old male and still a virgin. I have never been involved in sex with anyone but I masturbate very often, some time three to four times in a day. I have observed a little redness towards the left side of my penis and also some rashes on the upper portion of the shaft of my penis. As I am too shy to discuss the problem with my parents or even with friends, I am in great worry. I keep myself clean and wash the pubic area with antiseptic soap; still the redness and the rashes seem to increase every day. What should I do?

Thanks for the question; it seems that you are in the habit of excessive masturbation. It is possible that while masturbation you hold the penis very hard because that can a reason for the problem you are facing. It has been observed that many exert too much pressure and hold their penis very tight which causes rashes and redness. Another thing which i would suggest is to stop washing your pubic area with antiseptics, as you are having rashes and redness use just clean water for cleaning your genitals.
