Damaged and painful penis skin caused by harsh chemicals in cleanser. What remedies or products could help?


Hi. So a few months ago, I used some bathroom products as lubricant while masturbating that definitely were not meant to be put on a penis. I think what damaged my skin was a facial cleanser. It started to burn while I was masturbating, and stupidly I didn't really give it time to heal. I continued to masturbate regularly and this probably made it worse. Since then, I have gone more than a month without masturbating on multiple occasions, but the skin does not heal. It is still hurting. It doesn't hurt if I'm not wearing underwear or pants - the pain comes from rubbing against my clothes. The pain is sharp and burn-like. I also feel pain while masturbating when running my hand over the areas. Thankfully sex feels fine.

Anyway, I've done some research on what products will help. So far I've used Desitin (diaper rash cream) which has zinc oxide in it and has been known to help with friction burn on the penis. While it sort of helps temporarily, I think that's only because it's a buffer between my penis and my underwear. I'm looking at ordering Man 1 man oil, which I will likely do soon. I'm hoping that this is something that can be reversed, but because I did not let it heal properly when it needed to be left alone, I realize I may just have to deal with it. But even products or remedies that will help temporarily/need to be applied regularly will help, just looking for anything. Thanks in advance.

You must realise that you are applying whatever you are using on chemically burnt skin. Each one of them reacts with what you used before. Try washing with warm water without soaps on the affected skin and give it time to recover. Also try to avoiding masturbation to prevent more friction burns. If you have further questions post here or pm

Sudacrem is good for nappy rash skin irritations

Jojoba oil is very good for skin irritation and a lot cheaper than Man1man oil. Also very good is 100% unrefined Shea butter (it's one of the main ingredients of man1man oil). You also may use both for masturbation if you like.
