Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Perhaps you have a yeast infection/ candida balanitis. I suggest you to use an OTC topical antifungal e.g either Clotrimazole 1% cream or Ketoconazole 2% cream, twice daily for a few days. In addition I suggest you to take an oral antifungal e.g a single dose of Fluconazole 150mg tablet after confirming diagnosis with a doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
