Brief Answer:
looks like balanitis with phimosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr. XXXXXXX

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You seem to be having Balanitis, i.e. infection of the glans penis, which as now lead to phimosis, i.e. inability to pull back the skin.

You need to show to a surgeon for a clinical examination and confirmation of the diagnosis, and might need to undergo cirumscision after controlling the infection.

Hope I have been helpful.
