Somewhat irritated penis foreskin

Posted , 1 user is following.

My penis has been bothering me for a few weeks now and this spot under my foreskin has been occasionally itchy. It doesn't bother me throughout the day but when I'm sitting around doing nothing it acts up. I don't have herpes or anything so please help.

    Also, I'm not sure if it's balanitis because I've looked at many pictures and it doesn't look like it. It goes away if I don't masturbate for a while but comes back if I do it too much. This has never been a problem in the past, though.

    Fordyce spots? Penile papules?  Without seeing what it looks like it’s hard to make an opinion

      I'm not sure how to upload pictures but I've researched Fordyce spots and penile papules and they don't seem to be the case. I do have some bumps and my doctor has previously said that it just seems irritated but the bumps themselves are harmless and not bothersome.

      I'm trying to add photos but it won't upload. It's all right, though, I've made an appointment at the doctor's for next week anyway, was just trying to find some closure.
