Pink rash on the penis tip

This answer was rated:

I have a light pink rash on the tip of my penis. It is around urethra. It does not really itch but it is a little uncomfortable. It came around after I received oral sex. I have checked all over the internet and think it may be a fungus but I am not sure. I have been using clotrimazole for 2 days and it makes it feel better but I haven't seen any real change in it.

Hello from ja
Thanks for requesting me.
Fungal is possible.
Chlortrimazole might take a week.
I recommend however that you go have this swabbed now, to make sure it is not bacterial.
Any ulcerations should be checked for herpes.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
Please don’t forget a positive rating.

What should I do if it is bacterial? There are no ulcerations.

Mupiricin would be for bacterial
Chlortirmazole for fungal.
