Redness near penis head

Patient

Q: I have some redness and a small cut near the base of my penis head and seems to be due to unprotected sex with my girl friend with out proper lubrication. What can I use for the healing process?

Symptoms:  Redness and small cut
Doctor

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

I understand your concern.
This small cuts and redness is common after rough sex especially without any lubricant.
It heals on its own spontaneously within 3-4 days. You should also avoid intercourse till it completely heals.
If you still want to apply an ointment, you can apply Mupirocin ointment 2-3 times daily for 3 days after getting it examined by your local physician.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
