Brief Answer:
It is due to Balanoposthitis

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic

Greetings of the day

From the description given and clinical photograph provided it appears to be Balanoposthitis with super added fungal infection.

I would suggest you the following

1 Hot Seitz bath : To a tub of lukewarm water add 2 spoon of dettol. Sit in it for 15 to 20 minutes each session twice a day.

2. Dry and clean the area thoroughly

3. Local application of combination of Clotrimazole which is a antifungal and Betamethasone which is a steroid twice a day for 2 weeks will be helpful.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care

Best regards
Dr T Shobha Deepak
