It seems that probably you may be having candidal balanoposthitis. There is redness on prepuce with itching. CBP is caused by fungus called Candida albicans. Itraconazole or ketoconazole for 2 weeks may improve condition. Apply clotrimazole cream. Keep the are cleaned. Wash the area with dettol containing water. I hope you may be alright. I hope you got my answer.
