My penis has been drying/shriveling up very quickly and I’m concerned

Posted , 4 users are following.

i am a young adult Male and my penis keep quickly becoming very dehydrated and dried up and I am concerned on how i should act on this. This has not happened before so i am kind of nervous. My penis does not burn or itch or cause any weird pain or feelings and functions completely fine. However Im seeking a reason to why it is becoming extremely dry to the point of skin peeling, and when i touch it I feel absolutely no moisture, like it is literally dead. image This image is my penis at its worst today. i washed it up in warm water afterwards and it looked great and healthy and as it should! But the second it absorbs all the water it starts to completely dry up like this picture but a little less intense. I have been researching and found out i actually have PPP! from what i read i should not worry about that, but dryness isnt a symptom. Is this some type of STI? Onto what could have caused this, I have only had oral sex once in the past month, and they claim they are undiseased, however i started really noticing this extreme dehydration when i masturbated about 3-5 days in a row with body wash/no lubricants. after the first days masturbation it started to really burn (my penis) but the burning soon went away in an hour or so. I have researched and read dryness can be caused by unlubricated friction through both sex and masturbation, but is it as intense and shriviling up as this? Please let me know what this might be, in case of some underlying cause, and how i can cure to retain a healthy penis like how it used to be. thanks guys!

    I do not think you have a problem. You may have to use some type of lotion or use something when you masturbate. But it is I think just the way your body is. Have you been to a doctor. Try to get something from the pharmacy if you do not want to go to the doctor.

    Sometimes I get a itch on the circumcision line. I ask my doctor but I was not paying $68 for some cream I went to the pharmacist and ask him I got Cortizone 10 it has 1% hydrortisone in it. It works well. Maybe this will help you.

    Good luck..........Ken

    The body has a certain speed in releasing its natural oils/moisture after washing { body wash x you } , so if you masturbate with body wash { which I don't recommend } and also wash afterward you are stripping your skin of natural oils and not giving your body enough time to remoisturize itself naturally and you'll be dry for extra long time , it's a self inflicted situation.

    I recommend masturbating only with sex lubricants , oils or even chapstick . You'll see a difference in 24 hours.

    keep the bodywash only for washing.
