I have recently had the all clear from an sti check but it

Resolved Question:

I have recently had the all clear from an sti check but it did not include herpes or syphilis. The reason I am worryed is after my Sti check (8days ago) I have had a red patch which was itchy and now painfull on my penis it came 4 days ago and hasn't really changed to much but is now painfull is I am wondering if this needs to be seen again? After my own research I can't work out what it is as no blisters etc have appeared but I haven't not been feeling great. I was exposed to a possible risk (condom split) 30 days ago and had pain after urinating 3 weeks after but that has subsided now.
I presume a picture would help but not sure if I can do that on this site
Help very much appreciated
