What cause black spots on penis and itching in the groin?

Hi I have notice black spots on my penis and itching in my groin for about a month. Thought it was jock itch but still hasn't stopped. I've been with my fiancé for almost 7 yrs and we both have been tested for everything in the past and both of us were negative for anything.
