Hi,

This could be an infection (fungus) or skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Eczema appears as diffuse red plaques with a poorly defined edge and finely scaled surface. It frequently causes quite severe irritation. It can be caused by infection or local reaction to skin injury from chemicals or radiation. On the other hand, psoriasis appears as thickened red papules or plaques with a well-defined edge found usually on the glans (glands) or inner surface of the foreskin.  In uncircumcised men, and at other sites, it has a scaly surface. It  is caused by an abnormality of skin production and can be inherited. I recommend that you have this evaluated further for proper management. Direct clinical examination is important

Take care and keep us posted.
