alright. i'm a 16 year old guy, and i have an annoying problem.a few years ago (before i knew about any type of lubricant) i rubbed a small section on my penis "raw" if you will. being young i could never go more than a few days without masturbating so it never healed. now I've decided "enough's enough" and I've gone without it for a while. It's been about 24 days, and I can't see any improvement. I put neosporin on it 2-3 times a day. is it possible that my skin has just "gotten used" to being this way, and will not heal on it's own? or should I just give it more time? I've noticed I also haven't had any wet dreams since I stopped masturbating, although i don't know if the two are connected at all.

i probably sound paranoid but has gotten me kind of worried.

  • Hello,I a few years ago had the same problem. I suggest getting this "sore" checked out immediately. I had something similar and am now diagnosed with prostate cancer. Please do not wait.Peter
