Irritation on the shaft of penis. Skin turned sore, whitened and small brown spots after application of cream. Reason?

Hello, I have an irritation on the shaft of my penis that is worrying me. About 3 weeks ago I had a raised red patch of skin on the shaft of my penis. Fearing that it was herpes I went to the doctor and was told that it didn t appear to be herpes but rather some dermatitis . Regardless, a culture was taken and grown out and came back negative for HSV 1 and 2. I was given Nystatin and Triamcinolone cream and told to apply twice a day. I did this and the area was clearing up so I stopped using the cream and a day or so later I got a swelling in the same area of the penis which turned into a sore with whitened skin. Now there are tiny brown spots on the underside of my penis. Could those spots be from the cream? What does this sound like to you? I exercise everyday and always sweat a lot, and I feel like all of this may have something to do with that. Thanks for any help

Thanks for writing to us.
The spots that have appeared are not liekly to be due to use of the cream. It seems that you are having a resistant fungal infection of the penis. It needs oral as well as topical antifungal agents after proper swab culture.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
