Torn Skin On Top of Penis

I've been pretty active with my girlfriend for few years and not too long ago while having sexual intercourse with my girlfriend I managed to tear a very small area on the top of my penis from the intensity of the intercourse.  If I don't have sex for a week and let the area heal, then it appears to be fine and there are no problems.  

However, now that I have this pre-exisiting little tear, shortly after we start having sex, the area gets re-torn.  This has been going on now for a couple of months.  I've put lotion on the area, I've tried Neosporin and just stopped having sex for a week and the area looks normal and healed.  What can I do to let the area heal?  Perhaps I should let the area heal for two weeks and just use condoms for a while?  What if that doesn't work though.  How long should I let this area heal before having sex and how long should I continue to use condoms after the area has healed?

Rigorous activity in the affected area isn't likely going to help with the healing.  Healing rates will differ from person to person.  To get a more definitive answer, I would suggest getting the area seen by a dermatologist or urologist.

Condoms to protect the affected area may be a helpful suggestion.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
