You can see the white discharge and then where it looks like more of a yellow tone discharge which was actually the skin that peeled off and is now red and sore

Brief Answer:
Hi, it can be fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
According to your symptoms, in my opinion you are suffering from fungal infection( Thrush or yeast infection).
You have to follow these instructions to treat this condition-
1) Take plenty of fluids orally ( you can drink cranberry juice also).
2) Maintain proper vaginal hygiene by washing area with water from front to back after urination, XXXXXXX area dry and clean.
3) Use cotton undergarment, avoid tight fitting undergarment and jeans, avoid perfumed soap and deodorant.
4) Eat a lot of yougart, avoid using antibiotics.
5) You can use vaginal pessaries, cream( antifungal) to avoid soreness.
6) Avoid tampoon, use pad during menstruation.
7) Always do a safe sex and avoid sex during infection.
You should follow this for few weeks. If your symptoms subsides then it's ok, otherwise you and your partner should consult a doctor to rule out STD also.
Please do not get worried!
I think I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.
Regards
Dr. Richa

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
