Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the picture attached with this query.
The itchy and red rash on your penis seems to be due to a fungal infection.
Taking few simple measures will help in reducing the symptoms.
You can use some topical creams like Lotrimin after prescription from your doctor.
Don't use any cosmetics on your penis.Wear cotton clothes, retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. In case the symptoms persist then you may need oral antimicrobials/ antifungals for which you have to consult and get it prescribed from your doctor.
Avoid having sex till it is fully cured.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
