ANSWER: Abdulhamit:

It is not inconceivable that your actions may have irritated something, but there could also be other causes such as a skin infection, allergy, neuropathy, prostatitis, etc.  Have it checked by your local physician.

QUESTION: but the nerves are still deep in the penis that may become damaged during masturbation? Do not rub hard right? tingle like pain that can also come with something else eg muscle or skin irritation? because the feeling is just fine, the pain also emits light at me groin and scrotum


There are some nerves that are deep but most are at medium depth and there is the neurovascular bundle.  Superficial sensation is handled by smaller nerves that control skin sensation.  Its impossible to determine the cause or nature of your problem from only your description.
