Burning sensation and minor "rash" on penis, no other symptoms. STD?

Hi
I have gotten a full test for STD's done by my GP but due to the holidays I will not get my results for a week, this has me really stressed out.   When I got the tests done I had no symptoms, it was just a general checkup.   the symptoms developed afterwards and I have had them for about five days now.
I have the following symptoms:
- intermittent burning sensation on head of penis (cannot tell whether it is inside or outside), burning comes and goes irregularly
- reddish "rash" on two small areas of the corona of my penis, about 1cm each, but 1 is barely visible, in fact I can hardly see it.

I have no other symptoms; no burning when I urinate or ejaculate, no blisters, no fever, no pains anywhere else in my body, no itchiness, no swollen glands, no headaches, nothing else really.

Please can anyone put my mind to rest for the next few days that this is or is not Herpes or some other STD related?
Thanks

Hi, most often topical irritations like you mention are from a yeast infection, which is a change in your skins PH and causes the normal flora to grow out of control, basicly a fungus. What your describing does not appear herpes related.
The burning sensation without a white discharge can be from anxiety and constant checking and touching the area. Do you use condoms and what exposure risk have you had

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I always use a condom for sexual intercourse.
I have had sex once, with a condom, performed oral sex on her, she had no signs of any sores, etc. approx 5 weeks ago
Played around with another female, we performed oral on each other only, no signs of sores, etc approx 9 weeks ago.
From what I understand, when you get a herpes outbreak the blisters come on very quickly?   I do get cold sores and the blisters come on quite prominently.   I have also been tested for genital herpes before and I was clear.
Yes the burning gets worse when I wear underwear, i.e. my penis touches the underwear.
What could have caused the yeast infection?   Masturbation (too hard or long)?   Reaction to detergent on clothes?   Dirty hands when touching penis?
Thanks for your time :)
