Answer
Hello,

If you're having unprotected intercourse and without lubrication, then expect to have abrasion burns. I've written about this topic to clients so many times its ad nauseum at this point! Its nothing to worry about and if you don't want them to keep reoccurring then consider using A) a condom, or B) water based not oil based lubricant and they will not appear as much. Since your case is extremely mild compared to most of the cases I've seen a little dab would do you good! As for the inflammation itself, you can dab some hydrocortisone cream on the spots, twice a day, for a few days and they should clear up pretty fast. Any further questions, let me know.

Cheers,

John
