User avatar Hello,What you describe could well be monilial balanitis caused by yeast.These cause minor discomfort and itching.Treatment would be to apply antifungal cremes prescribed by your doctor.Pearly penile papules too cause similar picture but these are enlarged normal glands and need no intervention.You can get evaluated and since you had unprotected sex just to be sure.Best wishes.
