Warm/hot sensation on skin of my shaft, no discharge, visible rash or anything. friction burn from masturbation, or STD from 4 seconds of oral sex?

Warm/hot sensation on skin of my shaft, no discharge, visible rash or anything. friction burn from masturbation, or STD from 4 seconds of oral sex?

Not an STD: No STD causes symptoms like this. And oral sex is safe sex -- not totally risk free, but STD risk much lower than for vaginal or anal sex. And very rare after such a brief exposure. You're the best judge about whether it could be a friction burn from vigorous masturbation: you were there, I wasn't! But if the skin looks normal, probably nothing wrong and the feeling should go away soon. ...Read more

I have a friction burn on my penis from masturbating and was wondering if it is safe to masturbate while the wound is still healing ?

No: Any open wound should be given time to heal - continued friction may delay this leaving it more open to infection. Take a break! Make sure you are using a water based lubricant to avoid this in the future. If you are masturbating too frequently and it is causing you excessive worries or guilt talk to your pediatrician. It's a normal part of sexuality - but too much of a good thing can be worrisome ...Read more

Calendula cream: Some calendula cream (can find in health food stores) may help your friction burn heal, but penile skin is sensitive and needs care. Go easy on it for a few days. And then when you start up again, using lubricant might avoid similar injury. ...Read more

Calendula cream: Depending on extent of injury, calendula cream (easily available in health food stores) should help your abrasion heal. It will need a few days to do so.

AintNothinLikeThReal: Read "Portnoy's Complaint" by Philip Roth. And don't worry, that skin heals fast if you don't irritate it again. Use a mild soap and put a thin layer of any antibiotic ointment on it (just don't be tempted to use that ointment for anything else, at least for a while!). Then think of switching to a chamois cloth--or waiting for a real vagina. ...Read more

See your doctor so: that this can be properly diagnosed and treated. It sounds like you may also be having a contact reaction, possibly to condoms if you're using them and possibly from any creams/lotions/other substances that may be on your hands during masturbation. ...but it would be best to be seen.... ...Read more

How long does it take a vaginal friction burn to heal?

How long does it take a vaginal friction burn to heal?

Quick: The vagina is a place that received a lot of blood circulation and so cuts tend to heal very quickly, but I would give it a week before any insertion or consider using a lot of lube when trying again to decrease the risk of these friction burns. ...Read more

Very painful friction burn just inside my vaginal opening. What can I do to heal it and dull the pain?

Very painful friction burn just inside my vaginal opening.  What can I do to heal it and dull the pain?

Tincture of time: First, this is what NOT to do. Do not continue intercourse or other vaginal stimulation until it heals. Do not place oil based ointments, lubricants, pads, or commercial products on the area. DO see a MD who can provide a safe Rx specific for treating the area if it is a "friction burn". Many time these issues will heal on their own if left to Mother Nature over time. ...Read more
