Red spots on the tip of penis and itching


Q: Hi Dr.

I recently had unprotected sex with my wife and observed few red spots on the tip of the penis. I applied a cream 'Ketoconazole' for few days and even took anti fungal medicine for 3 days.

The redness has gone but I have noticed when the sperm comes out, those red spots appear again though less in number.. To tell you more details, it was not the first time I performed unprotected sex with my wife. I generally wear cotton undergarments and keep my penis dried up..

Could you please suggest a solution.

Thank You
