After affects of mulluscum contagiosum

Hi, about six months ago I was diagnosed with molluscum contagiosum and was prescribed Aldara cream. The molluscum has since almost completely went away, but now i have ALOT of redness on the shaft of my penis that scabs over where the molluscum was. I was just wondering if this is a normal after affect of if i should be concerned?

Thank you for you time.
