Please help! A couple of days ago I noticed a slight itching and a redness - blotches or spots, about 2-3mm across and flush to the skin - on the glans of my penis, and some smaller (less than 1mm) white spots (papules) under my foreskin. This worsened somewhat over the course of the day, and a slight burning sensation developed at the end of the urethra, though this latter sensation only lasted a few hours.

I showed a health care physician and he said there was no major problem but couldnt give me any answer or medication what could this possible be?
