Penile skin issues from masturbation or other?

Patient : Is it possible for masturbation to cause rash-like irritation on the penis. by no masturbating i noticed that in about a week and a half to two weeks the irritation goes away but after around three weeks to a month the irritation comes back. it itches and eventually flakes away, but i still don't know what it is. hydrocortozone(i apologize for the misspelling) seems to aid in reducing the itch but for the most part i just keep my genital area very clean and applying Vaseline to the entire genital area. i am 16 and have had only one sexual encounter but this has happened a few times before i even met that person but now that we are sexually active i am concerned.
