Brief Answer:
Candidial Balanoposthitis

Detailed Answer:

In my opinion this sounds like Candidial Balanoposthitis. It is common and can easily be treated with oral and topical antifungal medication for a week.

Since they are prescription based medicine and come with few unwanted affected I advise to get one from the local physician after counseling.

Hope my opinion is assuring.
