I masturbated little vigorously by rubbing penis on bed, I've developed couple of tiny red dots on penis shaft, they do not itch or pain, should I worry?

Don't Worry: You probably developed "petechiae, " due to minor hemorrhage of small capillary vessels under your skin, caused by physical trauma from masturbating too vigorously. They should resolve on their own. Consider using a water-based lubricant to reduce friction. Masturbation is normal and healthy, provided it does not become an obsession. Just treat your penis more gently; it's yours for life! ...Read more

Boyfriend saw lil red dots on penis. No itchiness. Pharmacist told him he has nothing. Even thoug girlfrnd had a yeast infection. What r the red dots.

Need eval: I have great respect for pharmacist but he/she can not tell your boyfriend he has "nothing" without actually evaluating him.

He should see a clinician (md/do/np/pa) who has trained to answer this question and who knows they can't give you a real answer without more info or at minimum inspection. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe the soap caused increased itchiness and sensitivity, which could be a yeast infection. Possible boyfriend has yeast as well. If worried about std, then both of you might want to get checked, just to be sure. ...Read more
