Red Rash on penis

I have developed a red rash on the top of my scrotum over the past couple of months. I started noticing it at the beginning of the year and it has spread a bit since then. The rash has a couple of clusters of very small bumps (the bump is no bigger then 1.5 millimeter). I have been to the health center at my school 3 times, and they tell me it is nothing to worry about, but it has not gone away in months. I am sexually active and I have had a girlfriend for a few months. We practice safe sex most of the time, but we have had unprotected sex a few times. I have asked her if she has experienced any kind of discomfort or rashing and she has said no. I have no pain, no blisters, no discharge, just the red rash with a few clusters of tiny bumps. One of the doctors said it could be mollescum, but i the bumps are not raised above the skin very much and I have yet to find a picture of mollescum that looks like my condition. Please let me know if anyone has any good theories on what this could be and some possible treatments for it.

possible jock itch too, do you work out a lot? if you want piece of mind get tested, but I do not think this is an STD. Best of luck.

Could be fungal, yeast. Does not sound like herpes or any other STD. Usually  STD symptoms, such as herpes, would come and go in a few weeks not last for months and remain unchanged. I would try some OTC jock itch cream.
