Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hi and thanks for query,
According to your symptoms there are many causes of such raised bumps, if you would have attached picture i could comment more precisely, the important point here is to rule out any STD and examination of the penis is required for that. I would suggest you should visit genitourinary clinic to have thorough examination and prescription accordingly. You should mention that you did not get any relief by steroid cream. Do attach a picture here if you can.
Let me know if you have further questions.

It seems to be balanitis, you may need antibiotics for this but again you have to visit your genito urinary clinic to rule out other possibilities by examination and you may need a skin biopsy for exact diagnosis. Meanwhile do not use any hard soap over the area and keep it moisturized.
