Brief Answer:
Possibility of yeast infection. Kindly upload images

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

Perhaps you have got yeast infection of the glans and prepuce skin i.e Candidal Balanoposthitis. I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected area in "Reports Section " so that I am able to have a look and guide you accordingly.

Hope to assist you further once I get the images

Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
You seem to have candidal infection. I suggest you to take an oral antifungal e.g fluconazole 150mg tab, once a day for 3 days. Topically you may use clotrimazole 1% cream, twice daily, for a week.

take care.
let me know if you need any more assistance
