Yes, you can use that cream, but you should know that you should use a moisturizing penis cream. A cream designed mainly for the pores and skin withinside the penis is usually recommended due to the fact the normal hand and frame creams may also include chemical substances which can cause allergic reactions. Look for one which carries Shea butter and Vitamin E.

ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE GOOD TO USE. DURING MASTURBATION THE LOTION LUBRICATES YOUR PENIS SO YOU WON'T IRRITATE THE THE SKIN AND CAUSE TRAUMA AND POSSIBLE BLEEDING.

Yes: Fine for masterbation, but may kill sperm if used during intercourse when trying to conceive. Use vegetable oils instead during sex to conceive.

Masturbation: 20x in one day is a little excessive. You maybe traumatizing the sensory nerves of your penis. Let them rest for a few days and see what happens.

PCP or derm : Best would probably be to see your PCP for an exam as it sounds like a chronic condition. If needed a dermatologist may be consulted.
