Try: a bit of steroid (Hydrocortisone) OTC (Over the Counter) cream...and wearing a condom can be a benefit in situations like this to avoid further trauma while the skin is healing Hope this is helpful Dr Z

Question cut off: but if there is friction against the tip of the penis - that will need to be alleviated.
