Answer
Bobby,

Try using a few dabs of hydrocortisone cream on the lesions a couple of times a day for a few days and let me know what happens. Obviously, oral sex and masturbation would aggravate abrasions like that because of friction. In which case, you should be using a water or silicone based lubricant to lower the chance of irritation and use a barrier methods during intercourse to reduce the chance of further aggravation as well. Let me know what happens and if you need follow up.

Cheers,

John
