Red, pink and dry patches at base of penis head.

  For the past year or so ive used shampoo as a lube to masterbate. Ive also maturbated to the point of rubbing it a little "raw" and the shampoo causing it to sting. About a month ago was when i noticed two dark red patches at the base of my penis head. There was never any pain other than a little tenderness rubbing the area. Since then ive stoped using the shampoo and when masturbating I avoid rubbing that area. I applied neosporin to the area for a  couple days and then i noticed the areas had dry, flaky skin on them so i started applying a lotion. No more dry skin. I have concerns now because they havent gone away after a month of no use of the shampoo, ive noticed a couple smaller areas where the skin is red at the base of the head, my head at times tends to be a little tender and my veins seem to be a darker purple color on my shaft. I just want to know if im being a little paranoid (after all, it is a pretty important area) Should i give it more time? Use a specific cream/lotion for treatment?

You might go see a dermatologist.  You might have developed an allergic reaction to something in the shampoo that is also in some of the items that you were using after the shampoo, or a bacterial infection.  Take the shampoo along so the doc can see what its ingredients are.
