Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for writing, and I understand your concern.

If you are addicted to masturbation, I suggest you change your daily routine, divert your mind, and do some meditation. Excessive masturbation can lead to pimples, or other reasons can be due to dehydration and not proper hygiene of face, so have to treat accordingly. Can you please tell me? How many times a day do you masturbate? Please send a picture of the pimples you have so I can check and prescribe you medicine accordingly.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Thank you for writing, and I understand your concern.

Masturbation in excessive amounts is not good, and as I mentioned previously that you should try to change your daily routine. When these thoughts come to your mind, you should divert them to something else, such as watching some movies or going out. Once a day is fine. So here I am, not telling you to stop completely. Just reduce the number, and then slowly, everything will be fine. First, try once a day, then 3 to 4 times a week is fine. You should do meditations to distract your mind. And for acne, I would suggest you take a tablet Doxycycline 100 mg once a day for a week for five days. Drink enough fluids.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
