Genital health

Patient : Hello. Several days ago the head of my penis started itching on the right side. When I took a shower I noticed that there was what looked like a red area on that side of my penis. I washed it throughly and applied some Neosporin to that area. It hasn't itched since, but occasionally the head of my penis hurts briefly. I have had sex with two different women lately. One was unprotected. Also I noticed what looked like what stuff when I pulled the skin back on the head. I was thinking it might be a yeast infection. Not sure though. Thanks
Symptoms:  Itching. Some but minor pain
