Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Balanitis is inflammation of the glans penis. When the foreskin is also affected, it is termed balanoposthitis. Please don't diagnose yourself because your knowledge and experience is limited and you are not a doctor. Your problem should be solved with a simple circumcision. Just consult a general surgeon. Don't be anxious.
Good luck.
