I have a small red spot, left side of penis head/crown. it seems to get better when i put neosporin on it. could it simply be an abrasion or an std?

Tough to say: Without an exam and testing, it is really impossible to say, but the fact that it improves with antibiotic meds is encouraging for an abrasion like wound. Get checked for the definitive answer.
