Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
You description is suggestive of bacterial or fungal infection of the foreskin or head of the penis.
Things that would help are.
1.     Get sugar levels checked and bring under control, if diabetic.
2.     Hygiene - please retract the foreskin and clean the area daily during bath.
3.     Application of antibacterial/ anti-fungal ointments twice daily for one week.

Before doing all these, please get yourself checked with a surgeon / urologist to see how tight the foreskin is and if it requires any surgical procedure.

Wishing you good health
Best regards
