Red inflamed fore skin and red blotches on penis head, feels uncomfortable, sore feeling on my penis. What's the cause and treatment?

Hi, about 3 weeks ago I went to the doctors as I had a red inflamed foreskin and red blotches on the head of my penis. The dr said it was thrush and prescibed canestan HC cream. I applied this twice daily for 4 days and the skin cleared up, but the tip of my penis was a little sore/ uncomfortable but looked fine. This did go a couple of days later (I took potassium citrate in case that helped), but the red blotches and inflamed foreskin started again. This cleared by itself within a few days, but now I have the uncomfortable, slightly sore feeling again at the tip of my penis, but there is nothing untoward to see. I'm not in agony, but it feels uncharacteristically sensitive and I don't feel "right". Please help!

This is very common in diabetes so please get your blood examined to check your sugar levels to rule out diabetes.
In the mean while take anti fungal medicine orally twice along with topical anti fungal Jelly for local application.
