Redness from Cowper's fluid?

For nearly two years now, I have been experiencing redness around the meatus of my penis. After some issues with my general practicioner, I finally was referred to a urologist, who said that the infection was caused by residual sweat and urine caught beneath the foreskin. He reccomended that I keep it dry and apply an anti-biotic ointment (Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide). This routine seemed to be working and the infection was becoming less and less noticeable, but today I got an erection in public and, as such, was unable to remove any of the Cowper's fluid. When I arrived at home the head of the penis was covered in fluid and the area was as red as it had been prior to the start of treatment, leading me to believe that the Cowper's fluid causes a great deal of irritation, especially when it is not removed quickly. Does this sound plausible? And if so, is there any way for me to prevent this situation from arising again?

Re: Redness from Cowper's fluid?

Although anything can happen on an individual basis, the lubricating fluid produced by the Cowper's gland is ordinarily "benign." I've never heard of it being irritating.
