Hello me and my girlfriend were having sex

Patient

Q: Hello me and my girlfriend were have sex and with a condom and I noticed after I had like small tears or abrasions on the tip of my penis which I'm assuming was from to much friction during so my question is how should I treat this

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Small cuts or tears are common after rough sex without any lube.
This automatically heals on its own, provided you abstain from intercourse for at least 3-4 days. If you do have intercourse, please use enough lubricant to avoid further injury.
You can apply Mupirocin ointment 2-3 times daily after consulting your physician but it is really not required as these injuries heal on their own.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
