Hi...., looks like you are suffering from balanitis..... Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans penis (head of the penis)..... The main aim of treatment is to keep the head of the penis and foreskin clean and dry. This should prevent infection and thus complications.... Slide the foreskin back towards your body so the head of the penis is exposed. Wash with warm water; do not use soap as this may irritate the area.... After washing, dry the area thoroughly. Make sure the head of the penis is completely dry before replacing the foreskin.....if above measures fails, then circumcision is only permanent cure.....
