You don't say which topical meds help (steroids? antifungals?), but most likely you have balanitis, or eczema of the penis.  This can be controlled very easily with mild cortisone or other topical creams, but tends to come back as a result of friction, etc.  You should ask the doctor who prescribed the creams that help--that's the best way to get a good and full answer to your questions.

Take care.

Hi,
   I'm a teenager and have never had any sexual contact besides kissing. I have almost the exact same thing as the above people have described. I was wondering what you reccomend I should do and if there is anyway I can treat and cure it at home? Thanks very much.
