what causes cuts on the foreskin of an uncircumsized penis? of an adult male? and is there anything that can remedy this? besides lube/circumcision?

Balanitis?: Overall the most common explanation is balanitis (the medical term for inflammation of the head of the penis and foreskin). Some are due to bacterial or yeast infection, others "nonspecific". Herpes is possible, but only for sores that appear for 1-2 weeks, clear up, and don't recur for at least several more weeks. See a doctor, preferably a urologist, for diagnosis and treatment advice.
