What causes a recurrent blister on the penis?

I have a recurring blister on the head of my penis. seems like hot tube, sex or masturbation brings it back and takes along time to heal...if it heals. I saw a young internist and he suspected syphilis but labs were negative. I finished the antibiotics anyway. My wife is an FP and is stumped as well. has smagma and blisters are open. What do you think?

Hello,

It could be a superficial fungal infection, we have to rule out possibilities of STD ( Sexually transmitted disease) also.
As a first line of management you can apply topical antibiotics like Mupirocin after cleaning with soap and water.
If lesion persist better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
