red blotchy penis, red dots and wrinkles on head

29 years old. have had unprotected sex. redness on penis tip and below at the top of the shaft for almost 2 months. It has changed but overall it is red blotchy skin, red dots, wrinkles in penis head. Today, there is major redness on the underside of the penis. Also, right now there is a slight pain in my right testicle. Docs and dermatologists have written it off but i know they are wrong. I was given a steroid cream and during that time i developed some erosion on the immediate underside of penis head. Now this has turned into scarring. There is no pain except slightly it feels chafed. I was convinced it was a male yeast infection but now i dont know. I am very scared.

i think it would  be best if you just saw the pix... so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE... tell me what is WRONG!?


Thank you

Welcome to the STD forum.

We don't normally look at posted photos on this forum.  But I broke our own rule and took a quick look.

The good news is that no STD causes a rash like you describe or that I see in the photos.  The bad news is that I don't know what it is and won't speculate; this forum is strictly limited to STD issues, not for resolution of non-STD genital symptoms.  Further, if a dermatologist can't figure it out, there is no way you should expect any distant online expert, on this forum or any other, to come up with a definitive answer.  All I can say is that most of the many conditions that can cause rash anywhere on the body sometimes do so on the genitals; don't assume an STD just because of the location.

That said, I'm rather surprised a dermatologist didn't have an explanation for you.  You might return to that office; or seek out another dermatologist's opinion.  But in the meantime, I wouldn't worry much about it.  This doesn't look serious and for sure not an STD.
