Brief Answer:
Regarding sores on underskin of prepuce

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have read your query, viewed the image and here is my advice.

I can see a few erosions on under surface of prepuce. This seems like genital herpes.
Is this the first time you are having this problem? Ant recent history of risky sexual exposure?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
