Balantitis can also be caused by bacteria; if this is the case it would need antibiotic ointments or oral medications (depending on severity).
Could this be a very very mild herpes? Herpes simplex is a very common virus' most of America (well, approximately 80%) has been exposed to HSV type 1; and 40% of people have been exposed to genital herpes. Herpes lesions are usually blisters, and often quite painful...but some people have it mildly, so mild they are not even aware of outbreaks. The time frame is there, the incubation period right, so I cant rule that out completely, but I think it very very unlikely from what I see.
Here is a helpful website regarding balantitis: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000862.htm
Images of BACTERIAL caused Balantitis: http://www.dermnet.com/Balanitis-Bacterial/ You will see it refers mainly to uncircumcised men; these pictures are of SEVERE cases. Yours if this even is balanitis is VERY mild.
I am pleased you got STD testing, and you are getting those results tomorrow. If this discomfort of yours continues, I would suggest getting it re-evaluated. Herpes lesions will fade on their own in a week or so, if this is mild herpes (very unlikely)

I hope I was able to make you a little more comfortable,
Hello JACustomer, Yes, I remember you, and I am sorry I did not reply to you sooner but I was not on Just Answer recently due to lots of pain (back spasm). If it has been three months, unchanged, maybe it is for you, a normal. I was not considering that before because you were so positive that this was a new change for you. Balanitis, whether from bacterial or fungal causes, would get better or worse on its own. It would not tend to stay exactly the same for so very long. I am not saying to NOT get it checked. I can not say it is normal, abnormal, or anything in between. But the fact it has stayed so stable makes me wonder if it is something that is normal for you. Im sorry you are unemployed, that has to be rough given this economy. I hope you can find a new job soon. There are many free and low cost clinics that are set up to provide care for people like you, with no insurance or waiting for it. These really can be quite helpful, and if there is a charge, its usually based on what the patient can afford to pay. Here are web links to find ones near you: . http://www.needymeds.org/free_clinics.taf and http://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov/Search_HCC.aspx and http://www.pparx.org/en/prescription_assistance_programs/free_clinic_finderI hope I was able to help,Sincerely,Susan
