I had unprotected sex with some random woman about 5 weeks ago.... meanwhile i have another girl i have been seeing / sorta exclusive with. i know, im terrible, i regret it.

2 days following that encounter with the random girl, i went to the doctors and got tested for STD's, and to be safe was prescribed some anti chlmaydia pills (azithromycin). I ended up being safe and not having an STD thank god.

now its been a while since that encounter, ive had sex several times with my usual girl and we dont use condoms. im completely certain of her sexual history by the way. just recently ive noticed a bit of a red rash around the rim of my penis head.... it seems to go away slightly/alleviate if i retract the foreskin and let air get to it. I dont really have any other symptoms, no pain in the penis or discharge per se. sometimes it itches, but since i started using anti jock itch cream (as of last night) it hasnt really itched.

im pretty certain its not an STD or anything of the like, im sure id really know if it was serious, this rash does not look life threatening or anything, however it is slightly concerning.

also, ive been eating pretty unhealthy lately (my birthday a couple of weeks back), ive been enjoying some green and eating way too much sugar/lollies and junk food. im sure this could have some effect on the rash.

I would appreciate any responses....

TL:DR - penis head (around base) slightly red with rash. sometimes itches, not very often. no other major symptoms.
