Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

From your symptoms it looks like balanitis of the penis which is an inflammation of the foreskin and head of the penis. It can be due to infection especially fungal infection, harsh soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing.
          
You should consult your primary care doctor and get a culture swab and a KOH examination of the skin of the foreskin done to rule out any infection. Till that time, retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. Wear cotton clothes and use as mild soap like Cetaphil for cleaning the penis. You can also use some topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin or Lotrimin after consulting your doctor. If the symptoms are worse then you may need topical steroids like dermacort which should be used against priscription.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing back.

You can use topical antifungal like clotrimazole or topical antibiotic like Bacitracin or Neosporin cream. If the symptoms persist then get oral antimicrobials prescribed from your doctor.
