After I have intercourse, my penis feels swollen and small red dots appear on the glans. It can be itchy and uncomfortabke. Blood/urine test clear std?

Yes, get tested.

Blood_type
You should absolutely visit your doctor. Your doctor should do a physical exam. Make sure you ask to be tested for STDs. If you have had multiple partners, high-risk partners, high-risk intercourse, or unprotected intercourse, you should consider being tested for HIV as well.

itchy glans clitoris.. and it's only there, no soreness, no redness..?

Yeast, or soap

Redness
It could be an early yeast infection. Other possibility is that you are having a reaction to soap, or new undergarments. If it persists, see your physician.

Inside of my foreskin is red and itchy. Sometimes there is some yellowish white substance is coming out o fit. I am using clotrimazole cream and still it is itchy.Sometimes the tip of the penis becomes red .Tip of the penis is very dry and pains while str

You

You should have this examined by your primary care doctor and - if they think you need a specialist evaluation - possibly by a urologist. It may be that you have inflammation or infection in the foreskin, and that can lead to difficult pulling back the foreskin, a condition called phimosis. A red lesion on the foreskin or head of the penis could potentially be something more concerning like Bowens' disease of the penis, so you should have it inspected.

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they dont seem to be an std they look more like boils and there on my penis i just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should i do

It

It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because STD'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances. Good luck.

Is penis redness on the glans edge dangerous?

Red Patch on Penis

Open-uri20130912-2107-2twlby
A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event. If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, I recommend a urological evaluation.
