Itching on foreskin, raised rash, white sores. Manifestation of yeast infection?

I have had issues with male yeast infection because I m uncircumcised And I have blood sugar issues... It had been acting up, so I made it a point to keep everything dry... But yesterday I had a burning itch on my foreskin that turned into a small semi-painful cluster. The cluster is like a rash but raised and has developed what looks like white pockets in the small sores. The entire cluster is only about the size of a dime. Is this a manifestation of the yeast infection? Or does it sound like something worse?

General & Family Physician Dr. Gagandeep Dhillon's  Response
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have had issues with male yeast infection along with diabetes. The new manifestations you are describing can be recurrence of the yeast infection. But it should also be noted that it can be due to other diseases like herpes also. It would not be possible for us to comment on it without examining it. Therefore, we would recommend you to get in touch with your Doctor as soon as possible. We would also advice you to abstain from sexual activity (or use condoms) till the time you get it examined. Hope this helps
