I have come down with a cold over the past couple days, been at least 3 by now. I tried getting out of the house by going for a run and going to the gym. My coach sent me home so I've been pretty stuck doing nothing but recovering. Since i've had nothing to do I've indulged myself in vigorous masturbation sessions that last up to 5 hours at a time. I did not release the damage I was doing until the foreskin of my penis started to swell (i think), the head itself has not swelled up but it's pretty tucked away under my foreskin. I can still get it out to clean and wash under the foreskin (uncircumcised). I've put vaseline on the friction burns I'd caused by masturbating for an extended time 2 days after I caught the issue. I have a history of fungal issues with my skin.

Keep the area clean. Don't masturbate for a few days until the swelling is gone. Do not use soap of the head of the penis. Just clean it with water.
