Penis rubbing raw after sex

For about a month and half now my penis has become very raw and irritated on and around the base after sex.  It completely healed and has now returned after somewhat rough sex.  It appears to be in and along the folds and wrinkles of the base of my penis and goes about half way around and about a quarter inch wide.  It is very tender and deep red like I have rubbed it raw and has been reoccuring for a month and a half. It is not swollen and I have not noticed any blistering. Is it herpes?  If not what can I put on it besides neosporin which does not seem to help heal it just soothes. Very scared about what the doctor is going to tell me. Feel like if it is herpes my life is over.  Very scared!  Please help!

Why would you think it's herpes?  The penis skin is thin and sensitive--friction, especially rough friction--can make any sensitive skin red and swollen.  If you're engaging in unsafe sex, please stop.  But when you ask the doctor about the problem you're describing, I really doubt you'll find anything you'll need to worry about.  As for prevention, just use common sense-lubrication, less rough sex, and so forth.

Take care.
