You may have had yeast, but the single-dose pill (fluconazole in all likelihood) would have killed any yeast you had.  What you have now is most likely residual irritation/eczema left over from the infection, not the infection itself.  That, I think, is why the yeast/fungus cream you're using now isn't helping.  I suggest you try over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone twice a day for a week.  If that doesn't help, ask your doctor to have another look.

Take care.

I am 40 year old male, and I started having penis rashes about 5 years ago. I always get them right after having sex with my wife or after masturbating. It seems that the friction is the problem. I get small pimples around the head or tip of my penis, also it gets kind of reddish and it burns when i urinate. Sometimes it lasts about three days to a week. I have use different creams for possible yeast infection and also antibiotics for the infection.  I am kind of worry because it does not go away completely.  When i was in California, I say different doctors but with no luck. I am still in the same situation. Please give me an advice.
