Get seen: By a competent physician who you trust to talk about your male sexuality. You do need to know up front that all young men enjoy their bodies as you've been doing and this is not the cause of any problems you are having. If you have real erectile dysfunction and/or pain, it needs to be seen. Your level of concern alone ("save my life") makes this too important a question for us at HealthTap. ...Read more

Is it ok to stroke the glans when masturbating (with lube on)? Because I am worried if I might be stroking off the sensitivity or something.

See answer: The head of the penis (glans), the rim of the glans, and the underside of the penis below glans (frenulum) are all rich in nerve endings and most sensitive/erogenous areas in most men. Masturbation and stroking these areas often result in maximal stimulation and pleasure. There is no danger or risk of damaging, removing or "stroking off" these sensitive areas with normal masturbation or lube use. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Without a direct look at glans penis, It's hard to offer an accurate Dx for effective Rx.

Is penis redness on the glans edge dangerous?

Is penis redness on the glans edge dangerous?

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event.
If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, I recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more
