In brief: Stop and see...

Does he have long foreskin? Was he circumcised? For now, stop over physical and chemical stimulation for next 1-2 weeks, gingerly apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream daily for next 3-5 days, and keep the affected area as dry and clean as possible but the cream used.
Besides, practicing healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession will benefit anyone on how to live a long happy life. Best.
