The large majority of genital skin problems are not STDs and there are many other dermatologic conditions that could cause "red spots". See a dermatologist. Good luck.

In some uncircumscribed males small reddish 'geographic' patches can occur at times. The cause is not exactly known. and most disappear in time. Try keepng the glans exposed (uncovered) and local cortsone ointment. Hope you do well
