Hi Dr. Phil,
I appeared to get some small friction blisters from masturbating with lubrication. I didn't realize that's what it was and continued masturbsting for several days before realizing that the burning feeling was actually around a part of the skin that was puffy and tender.Do these look like friction blisters, and if so, how long should I wait to resume masturbation?Photo attached

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I don't see the photo

I saw the photo from another question.

yes, the area looks like skin irritation from friction

you should wait 1 week for the area to heal up before resuming masturbation

Oh, awesome, thanks. Actually, upon looking at another picture, it appears to be a swollen vein (or blood vessel?) as opposed to a blister. See attached picture.

yes, it does look like a vein

it is not an STD or anything worrisome.

Sorry, just saw this response. Is this a thrombosed vein, or is it something less severe?

no, it is an irritated vein, not thrombosed.
