Brief Answer:
Would eventually heal. Hope you were not too traumatic!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

This usually happens when we do forceful and hard motions over the head of the penis. I encourage you to avoid touching, keep it clean and dry and avoid any masturbation until it is fully healed.

Hope I have answered your query. I wish you well.
