Hello. I am Dr. Venkat Attili, Dermatologist and Dermatopathologist with over 10 years of experience in this field. I am here to assist you and will answer your questions to your complete satisfaction.

Is the patch itchy/ sore? How long have you had it for?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
About a few days, nearly a week I guess
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It's not itchy or sore
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It hurts when I masturbate
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 7 months ago.

Ok. Just looks like a patch of dry/irritated eczema. Probably just caused by excessive friction from masturbation. Please use cortisone cream 4 times a day on the area. It should heal up in under a week. Nothing to worry.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. Please do not hesitate to ask. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary.
Best wishes.
