Red spots on foreskin and itchy testicles


Q: Hi doc, I have some red spots on my foreskin and my testicles have been very itchy lately. My girlfriend and I assumed it was a yeast infection since she told me it's common among girls who use birthcontrol. Ive been using canesten on the parts that were really itchy but I am not sure if it is working. I dont have any actual red spots on the penis head inself. It seems only to be on the foreskin covering the head. I stopped all sexual activity for a week after noticing that the itchiness did not stop. There were also cracks on the tip of my foreskin but they are gone now. What's wrong with me doc? Im scared I might have a std but am too afraid to go to my family doctor to get checked out. I don't sleep around.
