The other day I went tanning, completely nude on a high intensity bed. I had previously went to Florida so I had some what of a tan on my upper and lower body and I wanted to keep it going (obviously my waist/knee area was covered). In the course of tanning, I decided to put my boxers on with 8 minutes left. I could tell that I had burnt myself, even my upper body that got sun felt burnt, including my face, and I actually had a tan line from when I put my boxers on with the last remaining 8 minutes. However, I previously had sex with my girlfriend who I've been dating for three months (unprotected). Two days later, and after my tanning experience, I got out of the shower and masterbated. After I was done, I had a felt a irritation on my penis, the "fricition" like feeling, and it became inflamed, red and somewhat sore. It wasn't a severe pain by any means, nor did I notice any irritation (bumps, sorenes, etc...) previously to masterbating and I didnt have any other symptoms. The marks had appeared only where my hand had caused the "friction". I would compare the feeling to the "rug burn" sensation like when you masterbate too much and it leaves a mark. Anyways, later that night I ended up having unprotected sex again, and the following night I masterbated. About ten days later my sores had healed up and the only other symptom that had accured during the time was that I had some swollen lmyph nodes. Over the weekend I played basketball and dove on the ground and landed on my stomach groin area. I also haven't played basketball in over a year. I am an active lifter, but hardly do lower body. The only time it would bother would be when I walked with the constant friction between my penis rubbing against my leg/boxers or when I showered which resulted in the healing process to open the scabbing up. Anyways, my question is, do you think I may have had something more severe than just a really bad "rug burn/friction" irritation that I caused? I feel that since it occured and the activity that I did to it (sex/masterbating/tanning exposure) that I prolonged the irrtation and that's why it was such a severe incident to my penis. Any additionaly information would be great to hear/know!
