I went crazy and started masturbating more then usual in the shower and then when I got out my foreskin was swelled up. Should I see a Doctor?

If your penis does not go back to its usual condition in a few days, by all means, see a doctor. In the meantime, know that when you give your penis a high intensity workout, your penis may respond to all that vigorous, enthusiastic attention with redness, irritation, and/or swelling. Try using a water-based lube, pump yourself up, and then see what happens!
