Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

The most common reasons for cuts on penile area is fungal infection and viral infection.
I would like to know the following details :
1 ) what is the duration of the cuts ?
2) it the area itchy or associated with burning sensation?
3) any history of similar lesions before?
4 ) any history of preceding fluid filled lesions?
5) history of recent contact?
6) how about your diabetic status?
7) are the cuts diffuse or localized?
Kindly reply to my questions and if possible put a pic so that I can help you to my best.
Regards

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome again.

You will need a written prescription to get the medications. Its not a life threatening condition. Dont worry so much.

Both are easily manageable conditions.
Its jusz that the diagnosis need to be made before one can advice you further management.
Therefore, I advice you to put a pic or show to some doctor in person for inspection of the area.

Both are sexually transmitted disease spread by contact . Kissing can also spread the infection.
Stay healthy.
