hi

i masturbated yesterday.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ive sent you two images can you see them? it does not feel raised or anything just red

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
yes, I see that little red spot

that can happen from time to time

it is some mild dermatiits

it can come from hot weather or masturbation or irritation from a small bit of urine trapped under the skin

make sure you wash and clean under your foreskin daily with soap and water

try to shower and wash with soap after you exercise or sweat

it will get better in a day or so.

its a liitle red patch rather than a red spot, should i use anythying like fucidin h cream on it or anything its not some sort of growth or cancerous growth?

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
yes, I see the red patch.

it is not any sort of growth or cancer.

I am a cancer doctor.

it is a mild area of skin dermatitis from skin irritation

it will get better on its own.

you don't need any creams on it at this time.

creams can block skin pores and cause more problems

you need to just wash daily with soap and water and it will heal on its own

just wanted to ask as well i have a long term partner whom recently cheated on me - the partner has been checked out for all stds and clear. the only thing i did was unprotected oral sex me been the one receiving oral, but all there stds were clear and thats a long term partner and ive not been with anyone else

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
I see.

that red patch is not a sign of STD

it can be from irritation to the skin just from you receiving oral sex.

sucking and scratching of the skin can cause that

it will get better in a few days.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I haven't received oral sex for about 3 weeks now so what could it be
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
the redness is then dermatitis from something else irritating the skin like sweat or urine or heat or from you masturbating yesterday.
