Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It could be due to any infection to that part. Yellowish green indicated could be pseudomonas aerogenosa or staphylococcus infection.

It's not a serious condition but you need to take oral antibiotics to treat the infection. Amoxicillin clavulanic combination drugs would be better under Augmentin brand name.

It has to be taken for 5 to 7 days full course. Try to maintain personal hygiene and wash penis often after every urination.

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