Your reply suggests that you may be having some bacterial or fungal infection,although in some cases it could be without it also.
The best way to go ahead is to get your blood sugar fasting and PP done to rule out diabetes because if diabetes is present,then most likely it is fungal infection and then it won't be cured unless and until your sugar levels are controlled.
You can also test a swab from your glans tested for any infection.
If these tests reveal infection,then proper antibiotics and/or antifungal medications would make it all right.
The best would be to go to a urologist and get yourself examined by him.
Till then,wash your glans well with plain water and dry it by gentle rub with cloth.
Don't use soap for this.
Avoid doing sex with your wife at the moment.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me or any further query.
Best of luck
