Could be an STI: herpes or other type. Discussion and exam with your doctor would be helpful. Not likely from excessive masturbation, however. STI requires contact with a partner.

Agree with Dr. B: Masturbation does not cause any disease, Your symptoms may be from STI, if you have had sex with another person.
