Hi. This definitely sounds like a yeast balanitis and if the cream you've tried hasn't helped you need to see a doctor for either prescription ketoconazole cream or oral Diflucan to eradicate it

The cream helps and temporarily cures the problem but can does come back. One of the things that brings it back is after masturbation.

Well, it's also possible that it's just a dermatitis and not a yeast infection but at this point you really should have a doctor take a look Terry
