Ive had this rash it appears like on my penis for about a

Resolved Question:

I've had this rash it appears like on my penis for about a month now. I went two weeks ago to get checked for STDs and nothing came up. I tested for HIV, Herpes, Chlamydia, and Ghonnorea. I was advised that it might be a yeast infection by someone on this sight. I have not had a physical exam on my penis by a doctor though. I have been applying lotrimin but the red spot seem to turn white and fade but more come back in a different spot any idea why this might be?
