2 wks ago a few small skin abrasions near neck of penis (where there is loose skin). Scabbed and almost all healed up now, but not sure what it was.

Unsure...: Without detailed info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, progress, evolution, & resolution as well as the sequence of events of all symptoms + a direct look at, it is hard to offer right diagnosis.

My bf is freaking out because he got 3 bumps on his penis. They looking like abrasions. We used a condom and then unprotected sex. And he was rough.

Stop guessing: Go to the health department, your doctor or an emergency department. There is a culture for herpes.... If negative that will limit the long term problems most are concerned with. The other possibilities, to name a few are abrasions and a host of dermatitis related issues. Again, don't worry get tested. ...Read more

Abrasion on penis after unprotected blowjob received from sex worker. Can I get HIV from this act? There was no vaginal nor anal contact.

Abrasion on penis after unprotected blowjob received from sex worker. Can I get HIV from this act? There was no vaginal nor anal contact.

You're okay: HIV doesn't seem to be transmitted by this route. Saliva doesn't deliver it effectively, and a mere abrasion is unlikely to allow the virus into your bloodstream anyway. If you're going to get all worried like this over too-small-to-estimate risks, life'll be too hard. Use a condom next time -- you are risking gonorrhea from this. ...Read more

Here are some...: Severely scratching the itchy area may induce skin injury and subsequent tissue inflammation. Without a direct look, it's hard to offer the intended right Dx.
