Brief Answer:
It is allergic reaction to chemicals used as lubricant in condom.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .
The red spots that you have developed on head of the penis are due to allergic reaction to chemicals used in condom as a lubricant .

You need to take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefotaxime along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily along with topical antibiotic ointment like Neosporin twice daily.

Ensure to wash your genitals with warm water twice daily.

Ensure to avoid sexual encounters till it heals up completely.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.

Can it be a reaction to talcum powder also ? I use it to keep that area dry but When I used it this Tuesday there was a strong burning type feeling. These spots also came on Tuesday later on.

Are you sure this has nothing to do with STI ?
