Red Penis Glans pls help

Patient

Q: I am a 22 year old male. I masturbate frequently ( 1-2 times a day ). Masturbation can be either by rubbing with my hands or against a mattress while sleeping on my stomach. I used to use Evasline cream as lubrication but my skin turned out to be sensitive to it so i stopped 2-3 years ago. Now , i don't use lubrication and i'm comfortable. I sometimes watch porn to help ( 4-5 times a week ). For a year , i have been realizing the my penis glans has become red and has darker red parts ( as shown in the photo ) which are sometimes painful . What are these and what causes them ? how can they be avoided and treated ( pain and look )? I have a history of varicose veins can that be the reason ? PLS HELP. This is not an STD as i had never had sex.
