You are suffering from inflammation of penis called balanoposthitis. This  typically begins as inflammation of the head of the penis, later involving the foreskin as well. There is a greater risk of developing this condition if the foreskin is particularly tight or if the patient is diabetic. 
 This type of penis inflammation is most common among men who have not been circumcised and is often caused by poor personal hygiene, although diabetes ,can increase the chances of developing this condition. An infection may develop due to improper washing, the use of harsh soaps, or the failure to completely wash off the soap after bathing. In addition to penis inflammation, symptoms may include pain, redness, or a foul-smelling discharge. 
Treatment may involve oral antibiotics or medicated creams locally and control of blood sugar levels properly.
However if condition reocurs repeatedly,you should consider the option of circumcision.
Talk to your doctor and discuss with him.
