Staph Infection: It sounds more like a staph bacterial infection secondary to the previous yeast problem. It does not sound like an std.

Here are some...: Glad to hear your good response to Jack Itch cream. Since, such creams usually contain anti fungal agent with steroid and direct to suppress and rid skin fungal infection, which inflict warm and moist areas like external genitalia and groins - called tine cruris. For the rashes on penile opening and shaft, you may try the same cream and see if responding in 1 wk. If not, seek pro-evaluation.
