Hi,

It seems thatbyou may be having candidal balanoposthitis. It is a contagious disease caused by sexual intercourse. It is a fungal disease caused by Candida albicans. Take antifungal like itroconazole or ketoconazole. Apply clotrimazole cream. Take Sitz bath in dettol containing water.You may be improved. You may consult dermatologist. I hope you to my answer.
Thanks.
