Allow recovery: It sounds like you know what caused the problem, so you will be more careful not to overdo it in the future. Your body will return to normal with time and rest. If you are uncomfortable, Epson salt soaks (Epson salts in warm water) will help to reduce the swelling. A nonsteroidal-anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as ibuprofen or naproxen should also help relieve discomfort.

Probably benign: May be an epithelialized inclusion cyst which is benign and contains sebaceous material or smegma. It will be tender if infected. Penile cancer or syphilis can also cause non tender lumps. I suggest you see a urologist.

Phimosis: Sometimes the foreskin opening is too small to open up enough to allow it to be pulled back over the head of the penis. This is called phimosis. It can be corrected. Have your family doc or a urologist look at your penis. Your bio says you are a woman, i assume you are asking on behalf of a man.

This : This is most likely a condition called phimosis, a scarring of the foreskin which may be due to diabetes, yeast infection, or other less common skin conditions. It may also be related to weight gain. It is usually not a serious condition, but it should be evaluated, particularly if a man cannot retract the foreskin when the penis is flaccid. This scenario would prevent proper hygiene and self examination of the head of the penis. An initial visit with a primary care provider is the best place to start. Treatment may include topical skin application of a steroid or antifungal cream; if these fail to resolve, surgical incision of the scar (a dorsal slit) or surgical removal of the foreskin (circumcision) may be indicated. Consultation with a urologist is most appropriate in these cases.
A 46-year-old member asked:

I can't get my foreskin down when my penis is erected. What does that mean?

Phimosis: Means that your foreskin is too tight which makes hygeine difficult. Also means that sex or masturbation can not be maximally pleasureable, or even painful or uncomfortable. This may respond to prescription strength steroid cream or require circumcision.
