Thanks for posting your query.
Do you practicing masturbation regularly?
Hard sex and frequent masturbation may cause dryness with friction on penile skin.
It doesn't indicate any infection and you need not any antibiotic or antiviral therapy.
The body has an amazing capacity to heal itself. Just leave it alone as much as you can and let it heal.
You can apply lubricant cold cream, Vaseline.
If you stop masturbation and sex for coming few days then it will help automatically.
Put your query if you have.
Best regards,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Once a day usually.

I have stopped for a week or so before. It doesn't seem to go away much.
So if I stop for a while and apply cream it should help?

Recovery of any injury varies person to person.
If your condition didn't improve previously, then you should give time for recovery.
You should apply Vaseline with lubricants for faster recovery.
Kindly avoid brisk masturbation.
Take care,
