Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts and photograph that you have posted it appears that you have red spots on your glans penis and foreskin which develop more on sexual intercourse.

It does not look like to be any bacterial or fungal infection as rightly pointed out by Dermatologist but is just excessive blood circulation that happens when penis gets erected during sex.

Do not worry , It has no clinical significance as long as you do not have any urinary or other symptoms like burning, itching or swelling etc.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
Dr.Patil.

Hello
Thanks for follow up.
There is increased blood flow to the glans during sexual intercourse and hot shower that remains congested for some time for looking it red.
Thanks and Regards.
