Hello!

Itching of the foreskin may commonly be associated with fungal infection of penis such as Candida dermatitis --- this may cause redness / irritation / itching --- common cause of infection of foreskin = balanitis ..treatment if this is straight forward >> Nystatin based cream may be applied twice a day ( prescription also option with topical options and possibly oral such as irak Diflucan course )

Now you express concern of unprotected sex. Candida dermatitis or balanatitis is not an STD

However you may be checked for urethritis ( infection of inner aspect of penis ) swan for gonorrhea and chlamydia may be considered and may need treatment if you have risk ....these may be checked by your primary care doctor or urologist

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you
