Hi...., looks like you have developed Balanitis... Balanitis is an inflammation of the head of the penis.... Inflammation will occur if the sensitive skin under the foreskin is not washed regularly, allowing sweat, debris, dead skin and bacteria to collect under the foreskin and cause irritation ... Treatment depends on the underlying cause.... infection requires the relevant antibiotic or antifungal drug. Oral antibiotics can be required for severe cases... steroid creams of mild to moderate strength are used in short-term courses for non infectious causes....
