Thanks doc

Actually, from the pictures and the description, it looks and sounds like that you could have developed balanitis. This is an infection of the head of the penis which can be due to a bacterial infection or even due to a fungal infection. This could have been acquired because of the sexual intercourse however in most patients, it is acquired from the general environment. This would be diagnosed on a simple clinical examination as well as urine cultures, urine analysis and maybe even a urethral swab of the area. Once diagnosed it would need to be treated with oral antibiotics and oral antifungal medications which should solve the problem after using them for a period of 7-14 days.

Another cause of this would be related to an STD, it is possible that this can be due to an STD, however, the chances of that happening are very low. But given the intercourse, it is important to get screened for them nonetheless. A simple urine and blood test would exclude this as a cause.

Lastly, i would consider the possibility of eczema or contact dermatitis as well. this would occur because of contact with a new detergent, new personal hygiene products among others, In this case, topical steroids like hydrocortisone cream would be able to solve the problem.

I would suggest that you start with the hydrocortisone BUT do get evaluated as soon as possible.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
