Im 13 years old and masterbate once everyday. Sometimes two. I have noticed a small scab on my shaft about a week ago. After I masterbated, I touched the area and I felt a sting that hurt for a few seconds. I feel wierd about masterbating everyday and doing it so much that I have a scab. I hit puberty about 5 minths ago and my voice has lowered, but I have a small penis. Its 3.5 in and I feel emberassed. I have come up with A few reasons on why my penis may have a scab.
1: I masterbate frequently without lube. Scince I am in puberty, my erection is a bit to long for the skin and pulling up on it for a while has cut my shaft skin.
2: I masterbated to hard without lube.
3: Dry Skin?

Welcome to e health forum.

As you have mentioned yourself, the cause of the scab on your penis could be due to friction induced cuts during masturbation - due to lack of proper lubrication as well as improper technique.

You need not worry. Avoid masturbating for a few days and allow the scab to heal normally.
