Im 16 and have an issue with my penis

Im 16 and have an issue with my penis

hey im Levi, recently I masturbated in the shower in the dark, I reached down to pump some lube but accidentally got shampoo instead, i didnt realised untill a few seconds after and i had intense burning, of course. (Yes now thinking of it this whole idea was idiotic) While i was jerking off i was pretty rough with my penis i was pushing down on it from the head (diagram drawn to explain) and also ended up getting a tear in my foreskin. I treated the tear normally and cleaned everything. The next morning i woke up and had an erection, i reached down and touched the base of my shaft on my groin and it was pretty painful, i also had pain on my foreskin near where i tore it. It hurt to touch as did the base of my shaft. Fast foward to now and where i tore my penis on the foreskin has become swollen and painful, its hard to pull my foreskin back now.

anyone know what this is? and can anyone help? PS. i have phimosis

well normally shampoo instead of lube wouldn't be such a big issue. You might have been a bit too rough and torn your skin (if you have phimosis) and the shampoo might have irritated that place where it got torn. Give it a few days to heal and it should settle down on its own.

As for the phimosis, you should visit a urologist and have him look at it to figure out how to treat it as you want to solve the issue as soon as possible, whether by stretching if its not severe phimosis or a potential circumcision.

yeah well i havent been to a urologist for phimosis but i do stretch my foreskin and ive seen significant change to how far it stretches.

As for the tear, should i apply any cream to it? Should i use salt water on it?

As long as you keep it clean it should be fine. Depends on size of the tear. I don't know what country you are from but if you have Neosporin available you can use that.

Use some antibiotic cream on the torn skin and don't masturbate for few days

Turn the light on next time! Your suffering should be just temporary and the swelling should subside within a day or so. Your method equates to what some call jelqing. The practice has a cult following who claim is adds length to the penis. Swelling is a product of the pumping effect you used.

If you had full retractibility before this incidence, there's no reason to think you would not get it back once the swelling is gone. If not, simple stretching solve the problem. It's a matter of getting two fingers inside to be able to spread the opening. If this is done four times per day, five minutes each time, it will solve any tightness problem.

Try not to irritate the tear. You might apply a first aid ointment one time, then leave it alone.

I just noticed the last line. Phimosis is just a term for tight foreskin. If it's really tight, you can begin stretching by grasping the lips of the foreskin and pulling them apart gently. Hold for five minutes and do it four times a day. Circumcision is not necessary.

ive had phimosis before, im usually able to get my foreskin over my head quite easily when flaccid, but now it is a lot harder. And there doesnt seem to be a visible tear. The swelling has seemed to go down but theres a squiggle sort of vein type thing there that is pretty solid, its on my foreskin as im able to lift it off the head. Should i be worried

edit: swelling has not gone down lol, just while erect it seemed to vanish

Try icing your penis. Put a few ice cubes in a sandwich bag and apply it for about 10 minutes, then rest 10 min. Repeat a few times. That should help to get the swelling down. Once is is normal size again, you can begin stretching exercises to make that opening large enough for easy retraction.
