Brief Answer:
Provide pictures with more information.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM,

Red itchy inner foreskin could be due to bacterial infection or it could be also be a eczema which needs to be ruled out by clinical inspection apart from just thinking about fungal infection.

So,I will need to look at the head penis to check whether there is fungal infection or something else as you have already tried anti-fungal cream without much relief. There is an option to upload pictures on this page. You can utilize it.

And also before proceeding further,I would like to know,

Is there any pain or burning over the glans or at foreskin?
Do you use condom during masturbation?

Kindly get back to me with more information and the pictures of penis head.
