Help. Balantits or something else?

hi everyone. little backstory. about a month ago I started noticing some irritation/redness around my foreskin with small little micro cuts that were especially sensitive when I would retract my foreksin. i originally had attributed to friction/masturbation. I had done some research and posthitis was consistant with the symptoms. I eased off of the masturbation/sex and symptoms improved. I had even used a anti fungal with relief, however I still noticed that my foreskin retained a mildly reddish. yesterday I had sex and fast forward 24 hrs later I noticed that the head of my penis has several red spots. there not raised and not itchy nor do they burn. is this a case of balantitis / yeast infection ? or something else ?

I have only had 1 vaginal sex partner however I have had several other encounters but no penetration. just mutual masterbation.

If there is a way to attach pictures i can post some

Hi sounds as you may have been a bit a bit rough with yourself , take a couple of days off it will soon settle down , take care
Thank you for a reply. By a few days how long should I wait ? It's been 6 days and it's still noticeable.  It seeks to fluctuate in appearance.  At times it's more noticeable than others.  no pain or itching tho.
