Concern or not? Irritation of Meatus

Patient

Q: Yesterday after a masturbating I noticed that my meatus was very saw and felt raw, it was quite red and after going to the toilet it burned. This cleared up over night however today it is still a little red, no soreness, and doesn't hurt going to the toilet. I have not had unprotected sex in months and yesterday was the first symptoms of any kind. I'm thinking it's just some excessive masturbation and irritation. Thoughts?

Symptoms:  Soreness of tip of penis
