I cannot confirm without examination but the symptoms that you are having are due to balanitis of the penis.It is an inflammation of the glans (glands) penis.
Oral course of antibiotics is needed. In addition, please don’t use any cosmetics on the penis, instead use some topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin or Lotrimin. Also corticosteroids and topical immunosuppressants can be used but they are available under prescription. Also retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. In case the symptoms persist then please consult a urologist/dermatologist for evaluation and antimicrobials and steroids prescription.
Hope it helps .Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin and Lotrimin are available over the counter and for oral antimicrobials, a dermatologist’s consultation and prescription are mandatory.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
