Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Diabetes should be ruled out. Fasting blood sugar and HBA1C levels can be advised by your doctor. LIQUID PARAFFIN and Coco Nut Oil should be applied twice daily. Candidial balanoposthitis, which is a fungal infection of glans penis and prepuce also presents with drying and itching sensation inside the foreskin. If found on physical exam it should be treated with oral anti fungal medication.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks

Please consult your doctor before deciding on any further course of action.
