About two weeks ago I had some itchy, dry, scaly skin on my upper/inner thighs and figured it was common jock itch since I work outside in a humid climite and sweat quite a bit, workout, run, bike a lot everyday. I got some antifungal cream and used that for 2 weeks and that problem cleared up and looks completely gone but im going to use it for another week or so just to make sure.

About a week ago I got about a quarter size rash right below the head of my penis with dry, flaky skin on top of a red irritated area. It doesnt seem to itch but almost all of the things I read about jock itch say it rarely occurs on the penis. Ive also read that there are several STD's that may cause similar symptoms... Should I be worried about this spot or just continue to put antifungal cream on it and assume its jock itch?

Any question you may have that may help with advice ill answer. I just want to get rid of this mess!
