It's embarrassing, but I'll tell my story (as briefly as possible). About two years ago I was masterbating in the shower when some of the soap that was in my hair accidentally got into the tip of my penis. It immediately flared up and got quite red and irritated. I tried to wash it out as best I could and the problem seemed to go away. A few days later (and ever since then) the veins inside the shaft of my penis got very bright; you can see them very clearly just by looking at it. Also, the veins inside my scrotum that connect to my testicles are larger, and seem very bumpy and saggy if I try to feel them. Something does not feel right in there. This discomfort has traveled up into my anus as well; my stools are bloody at times and there is discomfort and blood when wiping. At times there is also a very brief but very intense stinging pain in my anus that is almost knee-buckling. What could this problem be? Was it really all caused by a tiny bit of shampoo getting inside my penis?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. That soap irritation two years ago has lost its effect in a week after incident and any discomfort after that till now can not be correlated with that. Masturbation does that by causing urethritis. Good coital habits , abstinence from masturbation will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
