Irritation of foreskin

Hi, i am 32 yrs old and have an uncircumcized penis. My foreskin has been very sensative to soap over the past few years so i generally wash with just water or have had pretty good success with oatmeal soap. I have had problems with irritation on the foreskin area after sex or masterbation (masturbation),
I usually get a few small red blotches(not painful at all). I've gone to the doctor and he suggested antifungal cream or hydrocortizone. Neither have really helped. Usually a few day (3-4) of no activity takes care of the blotches. Any sugestions on what i can do, i've thought about having circumcizion done but would do that as a last resort. Any cream to put on before sex or masterbation (masturbation)???

Thanks

Moisturizing (as with vaseline) before friction may help, as may hydrocortisone afterward.  The blotching is probably just the result of friction.  It doesn't mean anything.  You are best advised to ignore it.

Take care.

Could you help me ID these skin breaks? They are 5-10 times the diameter of a hair. They are coincidental with skin irritation about them.
