Dear Sir

Thanks for providing clinical photograph. From the picture it is likely to be Balanitis(inflammation opf glans/head of penis). The most common cause is lijkely to be fungal infection. The lesion do not appear to be due to any STD.

I would suggest you the following

1. Abstain from sexual intercourse for next 2-3 weeks

2. Local application of combination of antifungal and steroid ointment will be helpful

If the symptoms still persist even after 1 week of application then don't hesitate to consult your primary care Physician for further assessment.

Take Care

Best Regards
