Pink and shiny glans penis with red band at edge, could this be just a temporary allergic reaction

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've had an issue, after recently checking under the foreskin, of an usually pink and shiny colour to the glans penis as well as oversensitivity. 

I've treated this for two weeks with an anti-fungal, however, the colour did not change. I was wondering if it could be an allergic reaction, and what could be the culprit. 

I have at this time of year, also reddish skin on my face and around the nose.  I believed this could be related to the cold area, however, this would not be relevant in this area. 

What anti-allergy tablets would be recommended, and is it normal in this area? If it's allergic, rather than fungal, could it be just temporary and go away soon??

All the best,
