Possible monilia: You could have a yeast infection, particularly if you are not circumcised. This may be the first sign of Diabetes... of course you may have a sex Trans disease. or you may have an infection from a tooth cut from oral sex. The best Rx is to see your doctor or preferably a Urologist. In my office I would check it all.
