Hello
I would be pleased to answer your question

Thanks for the photo .

from the photos it looks like one of the Candidal infection( Fungal Infection). The other possibility include Zoon's balanitis ( Plasma Cell balanitis)
It has been proposed that friction, trauma, heat, poor hygiene, chronic infection can result in the above .
You should try applying an antifungal and tacrolimus which you can get by prescription from your Doctor .
Please do visit the doctor to rule out the above conditions and discuss the same
