I had unprotected sex (oran and vaginal) around mid october

Resolved Question:

I had unprotected sex (oran and vaginal) around mid october and around a week later I began to notice a pain and heaviness in the testes, around a week after that I saw a small red spot on the glans penis
I went for an STD test and came back all negative
They ddint however test for herpes but they said it didn't look like it was
I went to see my GP who prescribed me antibiotics and clomatrizole and an emolient to wash with
the rash became worse at first , spreading from a small spot to general skin irritation, (this could ahve been from the emolient.
The condition has been improving steadily until today I found this angry red spot under my foreskin.
Could this be herpes? or something else, perhaps a yeast infestion. There has never been any pain however the was some itching but that was brief and is now gone. Picture attatched - foreskin image Glans image

This is Dr. David
the red spots don't sound like herpes
herpes are very very painful and tender ulcers on the skin.
the red spot in the photo is not herpes.
it is from a blocked skin pore or skin irritation.
it is not a fungal infection either.
you should wash with a mild soap like Dove soap daily
and avoid putting on any creams or lotions which can block skin pores.
let me know if you have questions.

You don't think the epididimytis has something to do with it? would be nice to think you're right, but it does seem to point to an infection doesn't it?

epididimyitis would not cause a red spot on your penis.
it can cause tenderness in your testicle.
but it usually goes away.
let me know if you have other questions.

I am aware of this, but both could be a symptom of a larger problem.
Seems to be clearing up though, thanks for the help
