Redness on penis

after minor friction went to see doctor as it presisted for few weeks, intially doctor "assumed" Hydrocrotisone will do the job, while it decreased some chafing, I used it for 14 days and it made the area more redened!. I saw my other doctor and he thought its the friction not responding so he gave me stronger steroid! After 3weeks of application the condition was escalating thus, I decided to stop.

Whilst burning had decreased drasticslly, its been now 5months since I stop any steroids nonetheless I'm left with more visible redness in that area of application!

Is this permanent? I'm assuming it is since skin is unable to recover back to its normal colour!

Hi and welcome. Since this is not STD related (or is it?) you might want to post this in the dermatology forum
