Thanks for Your answer!
My problems started in 2016 november. I began using Mometasone (Elocon 0.1%) intermittently for 1 year, 'cos there was two, 2-3 mm sized red patch on my glans. A half of a year later suddenly the half area of my glans became red (in 2017 autumn). Then I continously used Elocon for more half of a year, six days per months. Summa 40..50 days i think. I then finished topical steroid and did cessation (cold turkey) from 2018 jun (till now), when the Elocom was already useless, the redness became persistent and slowly, till october  extended to the whole glans and forskin area. These areas also became terribly  atrophy months later than I finished Elocom. It is shiny, burns, painful, red like Lichen SA (BXO) unless it would shown any white patches. The meatus in the beginning was clear, but now the whole area under the forskin has equal erythema and atrophy and it burns and I have urinary problems. I tried million type of emollient, moisturizer in vain, but this area is irritated due any creams, like an irritant contact derma. I was at 8 dermatologist doctor, they all prescribed cream for athopy dermatitis. I think they all wrong. All of the prescribed creams were useless and irritated these areas.
Because the atrophy process and redness went further months than my steroid using was already finished, I am afraid it is BXO, Queyrat, or any other terrible disease.

So sorry for all you have been through with this- are you currently on any medications?  Did the doctors give you a diagnosis along with the prescription?
