Molloscum but what else?

Hi everyone,

Few months ago I contracted molluscum from a girl I was dating. Went to a dermatologist as soon as I noticed and he froze them with liquid nitrogen. They came back. I went to another doctor and asked for another diagnosis. He confirmed the 1st one. I told him I don't like the liquid nitrogen so he prescribed me aldara (I'm supposed to use it 3 times a week but I use EOD and seems to be working since the pimples got bright red).

Anyways, besides this, after I had sex with my GF (who knows about my condition but she seems to be immune to it), I notice redness all over my penis and the head becomes 'weird'. It feels that the texture is different. I had few pimples from the molluscum on my penis but they were gone. Now all I see is new pink skin that gets brighter when I have sex.

I'm getting worried because I'm starting to feel so insecure. Basically I want to know if what you guys will see in the pictures seems like molluscum or maybe something else? (chlamydia maybe or anything like that). I had an STD panel test done the first week when I noticed the molluscum but no one told me that I was supposed to wait few weeks before getting tested. Everything came back negative but I'm starting to think I contracted something else besides molluscum.

Why don't I go to the doctor and get tested again? Well, simply because I have no insurance/no money left after buying the aldara

Here are the two pics and hopefully someone can chime in:

Thanks everyone
