A 34-year-old member asked:

I masturbated with shampoo and now the skin of my penis head is peeling, what to do?

Nothing special: I would avoid any masturbation until this resolves. It could be from friction or possibly a dermatitis for something in the shampoo. Its better to use a simple lubricant as opposed to a soap type product. THe head should get better in a few days
