Frenulum...: Without picture, i guess the structure that you tried to describe or refer is anatomically called frenulum praepulii penis, which is just like the frenulum of tongue and ease to bleed if being tight and stretched. Sexually, it's a sensitive spot for arousal similar to the corona of penis usually, it's not an issue of concern. For detail, go to check with urologist.

Erosion/ulcer?: Would recommend having this assessed by a doctor asap. It is never normal to have raw skin anywhere on the penis. The bleeding described results from friction/trauma. Cancers on the penis can occur and behave similarily so please have this checked and appropriately treated.
