Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The red blotches on the chest have nothing to do with the masturbation. The good news is that they fade away on their own. However, it makes sense to do a complete haemogram with a platelet count and complete bleeding and coagulation profile.

We need to rule out a bleeding/clotting disorder and this facilitates in ruling it out. Please do consult a physician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
