Brief Answer:
Rule out fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, a dermatologist.
Cuts on the penile skin can be due to bacterial or fungal infection.
Are you diabetic or your wife having history of vaginal discharge?
If yes then cuts can be due to fungal infection.
In such cases I recommend my patients to apply clotrimazole cream on the affected areas twice daily for 2 weeks.
Otherwise you can apply soframycin cream on the cut.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
