What causes ulcer on the head of penis?

hello, two days ago i noticed a ulcer arround the glands on the head of my penis, it had a yellow/bown dimple like centre and was about 2mm diametre. some discarge came out which i wiped away and then yesterday it has spread to arround 4-5 more red spots and smaller ulcerations. the last time i had unprotected sex was 2 years ago and im 22 however i have to admit my personal hygene has not been up to scratch lately. i have received both unprotected oral and unprotected masterbation from my partner which was quite rough, i was just wondering if this could be something which was caused through the friction and became infected and spread? thanks.

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have developed infection of the glans penis Ballanitis due to unprotected oral sex and rough vigorous masturbation .

The oral cavity is full of bacterial flora and one can get bacterial infection due to oral sex .
