Hello,

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have developed infection of Glans of the Penis and Foreskin (Ballano Posthatitis) following intercourse.

Was it a unprotected sex?

Please get following preliminary tests done to conclude your problem.
1) Routine Urine Test .
2) Blood test to rule out STD.
3)Blood Sugar Level to rule out Diabetes.
You will get results of these tests in few hours.

Please consult qualified Urologist or Dermatologist with reports of these tests for clinical examination. Topical antibiotic like Neosporin for local application over glans and foreskin will help.

Hope I have answered your query.

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks with Regards.
Dr.Patil..
