This seems to Dermatitis patch which become itchy and sore while having friction during sex .

you don't think it is herpies or something else chronic? I've tried ointments that make it lessen, but if i stop it comes back.
Expert:  dr abid replied 1 year ago.

As you mentioned you have single lesion that appears Off/ON so possibility of Herpes could also be there , but Localized dermatitis should be kept in mind .

If it reappears once you stops ointment than possibility of Herpes should be ruled out .

So I will suggest you to have blood test for Herpes .

Good luck .
