If you masturbate to much as a man can you get bumps or lumps on your penis or infections or like rash or pimples?

Not likely: Masturbation is very unlikely to cause any skin issues beyond friction abrasions...

Irritation: If you're really rough on yourself, you can get irritated skin. You can also get acne on yourself. All guys your age are doing the same as you. Think about getting some lube. If Dad's a reasonable guy, you might find out that he knows more than you might think and he could be just the person to talk to. Best wishes.
