User avatar Hi Pspking,

Your description does not sound like herpes. Warts are possible but it really doesn't sound like this either.

A fungal infection is possible although the medicine in Daktarin is very effective against these infections.

Given that you say it returns after intercourse it is possible that you have some irritation from trauma.

You may want to see a urologist or dermatologist about this to see if you can get a more precise diagnosis.

Best wishes.
