White circle on the penis?

I have noticed there is sort of white area on the penis, sometimes it gets sort of white powder. I only have protected sex, and this scared me a bit. I did STD test and all negative. Once u use soap to wash it, it gets irritated a bit. What is this thing called? and is it curable?

Here's a photo of it

The white colour suggests that it may be lichen sclerosis.  See your urologist.
