Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that you have Balanitis which is inflammation of glans penis or tip of penis. It can come up with rash. There are many causes for that and STD's are one of a leading cause I am glad in your case all STDs negative so it's reassuring. It's important to rule out other causes such as fungal infection like Candida, streptococci, Herpes, HPV viral infection. Sometimes this inflammation can be due to non-infectious cause such as reaction to chemical or condoms or any soap etc. I will suggest your physician to refer you to Urologist for further examination and some specific test including swab test to identify it is infectious. Treatment should be done accordingly in case of fungal infection you may need anti-fungal ointments or medication. It is important to maintain good hygiene and keep the area dry.
