Brief Answer:
It can be balanitis problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hello there,
Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor service'.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advise.

You can have balanitis problem according to history. It is the inflammation of foreskin and glans penis. So yes it is the problem related to foreskin.

Foreskin is sensitive area and can get easily inflammed if foreskin and underlying smegma not cleaned properly.
You are advisable to clean it with lukewarm water.
Don't apply soap for few days.
Keep penis area clean and dry after bathing.
Take healthy fruits and vegetables more.

It seems to be fungal balanitis. For that antifungal ointment or cream can be prescribed.

If inflammation more then mild steroid cream also can be prescribed.

You can Consult dermatologist for examination of genitals and get prescription accordingly.

Hope I have answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Best regards.
