What causes inflammation on penis tip?

I am 53 yrs old and have 2 grown up children, have been using all safety for years. (no accidental physical encounter ever) Since last one month have acquired a stupid problem around Penis,

Tip is red which is slowly turning pink now, but on the outer peridhery of foreskin, there are two red small spots which are painful like injuries, They irritate for one day and then it is ok, but again they appear and disturb. it is very embarrasing some time to itch in this area.

I am diabetic and take OBIMET SR (1 GM) every day along with CLEVIX ASA, please advise

In diabetics patient, there can be a chance of fungal infection. Your symptoms point towards fungal balanitis like penis infection (of glans penis). In this condition, topical antifungal needs to be prescribed. So to confirm the diagnosis or to guide you further kindly post a photo of the lesion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
