Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Wrinkle and scale with white spots and is dryness are all suggestive of steroid induced atrophy.
I think the lotion you are using contains steroid, if it is correct you must stop using that lotion.
Just check the contents of lotion once, or else let me know the name of the lotion, I will tell you the contents.
To prevent dryness and help your skin regenerate, apply plain Vaseline (PETROLEUM JELLY), this will be sufficient. there is no need to apply any other lotion.
I would like to see how the lesion is, kindly attach a photograph of the lesion.
I think you have attached a wrong photograph.

Psoriasis can be a cause of your symptoms, but it is highly unlikely that only lesion on glans is seen without any skin lesions.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Wishing you good health.
Thank you

i appreciate your feedback what is your opinion on applying olive oil and will this reduce the wrinkling effect
i will only apply petrol jelly will this in turn resore my penis to its former glory and at least some sensitivity

Thanks for the follow up.
Please dont apply olive oil, I have seen cases where there has been reaction with olive oil.
Just petroleum jelly will be sufficient.
Ya you will get back the normal skin and sensation, but it will take around a month time.
Thank you
