Male Yeast Infection?

I've had a few red glossy patches on my penis over the last month or so. They don't hurt or itch--just look red, irritated and are glossy/shiney in appearance. They go away after a few days (like dry skin), but reappear in a different location on soon thereafter. I've had a Herpes blood test that was negative. Could this be a yeast infection? Has anyone gotten this kind of reaction from masturbating?

No, it doesn't burn, itch or feel like any different from the rest...just looks like a redish color... I can see the little red capillaries if I stretch the skin. If I didnt see it I wouldnt know it was there, but I'm concerned nonetheless. Thanks.

Yes, it could be some sort of fungal infection. The only way to know for sure is to check with your doctor.
