Pink and shiny glans penis with red band at edge - not treated with anti-fungals

Posted , 2 users are following.


For the last few months I've noticed, after recently checking under the foreskin (pulling back my foreskin), that I have an unusually pink and shiny colour to the glans penis as well as oversensitivity. 

I've treated this for two weeks with an anti-fungal cream, 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 weather, however, this would not be relevant in this area as it is usually covered. 

What dermatological issue could this be, and will the colour change? Also why is there a more pink coloured band closer to the edge?
