Hi,
This condition is known as balanoposthitis. This might result from a tight foreskin or phimosis or as a result of some skin disease or infection. Treatment is directed to the cause. The area has to be kept clean, antibacterial cream must be administered if there is active infection or antifungal cream if there is a fungal infection. If the foreskin is tight then circumcision or excision of foreskin would help from recurrent balanoposthitis.
