Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the photograph and facts that you have posted it appears that you have allergic reaction to glans penis either due to soap that you may be using for bathing or to vaginal secretions of your wife.

Please get her examined by qualified Gynaecologist and treatment if required.

Since you do not have any urinary symptoms and itching or burning you need not worry at all.

You can apply topical steroid jelly for couple of days.

Please avoid using soap or any chemical to clean your genitals Wash your genitals with plain warm water.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
Dr.Patil.
