This could be hair follicle infection on the skin at the origin of the penis from your body called folliculitis. You can apply antibacterial ointment like Fucidin on that area of skin for relief. If there is any redness, ulcer, discharge from the pink region of penis, it should be shown to a Dermatologist to rule out STDs.
