Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
Hydroheal gel is a moist wound dressing with silver ions. It helps in wound healing and has antibacterial property too.

It is easily available in your country. You may check this site for availability

I can understand that every doctor has different opinion about the cut/abrasion near urethral meatus. There is no harm in using hydroheal gel. Had you been my patient, I would have just advised to clean the area with lukewarm water while bathing. Soap/dettol/savlon should not be used in affected area as it may irritate the area. Also a topical antibiotic steroid cream like fusidic acid mixed with fluticasone cream should be used twice in a day.

A few things that should be checked in your case-
if your blood sugar level is normal
If your foreskin is too tight ie if you feel its difficult to retract it.
If your glans get covered with white curdy discharge along with this cut or fissure.
If your wife has vaginal itching and discharge
If you get these cuts after sexual contact.

these questions are just to rule out if yeast infection( candidal balanitis)/trauma due to tight foreskin/diabetes is the underlying cause for the abrasion.

Hope this helped.
Take care

My 4 year old daughter has complained of vaginal itching after she has taken a bath. I went on line and found a remedy of bathing her in baking soda and water to relieve the itching. She now has sores from wiping herself to hard from trying to scratch the itch. Is there anything over the counter that I can use to help relieve her pain that she has from the sores that she says burn when she urinates. . .my next step is to take her to the doctor.
