I noticed a red area while I was masterbating a couple days

Customer Question

Hello, I noticed a red area while I was masterbating a couple days ago. I truly believe it's simply from friction because I've been masturbating a lot and for long periods of time, as well as using olive oil, which has gotten to burning at times. But I want to make sure that is what it is. I included a couple images. I have noticed that when I am erect, it's very shiny like a friction type thing and that the bumpy area seem to go away when I pull my skin. Also, if you zoom in, you should see that it's almost the same kind of bumps on my normal skin but just raised a little more like it's inflamed.

It is just inflammation. You don't need to worry about it. Reassured.
