Friction burn on the penile tip, worsens after sex, skin seems crusty and peeled. Relief measure?

I think I may have a friction burn on the underside, tip of my penis . It became a bit render after masturbating a few weeks ago, but then worse after sex (some days later). It was very red and tender and a day or 2 later, started peeling in the affected area. It has been about 2 weeks now and it still has not gone away. The skin in that area became crusty again and peeled, and now it looked red and tender (again). How should I treat this? About how long will it take to heal? Is it ok to put an antibacterial cream on it?

Thanks for your query.You have red ,tender raw erosion on the glans penis after a sex. This is severe infection of the Glans penis termed as Balano Posthatis.Please take some antibiotics like Doxycyclin along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclophenac for 10 days.Please see that you clean the glans and foreskin properly and may apply some antibiotic ointment after consulting your family Physician.Do not masturbate or have a sex till it heals completely.
