Abrasion On Penis
If HIV virus won't live more than 1min the how come vaginal fluid having HIV on cloth exposed outside wiped at tip of penis can cause HIV infection?

I have an abrasion on my penis shaft which began with dry skin and turned into a bump under the skin which opened a bit. Concerned about infection etc
Watch and see...: If indeed what you described is just a skin abrasion with subsequent redness, just keep it clean and dry with no need to overuse topical antibiotic cream; it will dry up and heal quickly in 3-5 days in a healthy man.
