Hello, I'm 17 years old and I have never had sex but masturbate almost daily. Recently I noticed a red mark on the head of my penis. It does not hurt or itch, but it seems like it is taking a while for it to heal. Sometimes I will get a few red marks on the shaft of my penis but those will heal and go away. This red spot on the head will get hard sort of like a scab and then start to heal but I masturbate often so it restarts the healing process i would assume. After masturbation it turns red and then after a few days without masturbation it will begin to heal again. My question is how long it should take to heal? and if i can do anything to speed up the healing process?
