I'm a male in my mid 20's and I have had a sore on my penis for several months now. I have been checked for all types of STD's and STI's several times over the months and the results are always negative for everything. I masterbate several times a day and usually have sex with my girlfriend once a day ( Ihave been with the same girl for 3 years now).

The sore started out small but gets larger in size and then gets smaller in size but never goes away and it only covers the area that my foreskin covers.

I believe it is from masterbating too much and I think the reason it takes so long to heal is because the skin stretches so much with erections and also it cant scab over and dry out like a normal cut (the sore always seems to be moist) because of my foreskin. I have tried polysporin, antibiotic cream, etc but nothing seems to work.

Even if I stop masterbating and having sex for a couple days it doesnt seem to make a difference.

Do you have any suggestions?

I think you know what you have to do.

Take a break if your doing it "several times a day"
You should be letting it heal of several weeks.
Scare tissue is stronger than normal tissue so if
you can rest for a while it may heal well with no more
