Penis skin swelled

Good day. I'm 25 and I have this weird problem. Ever since I was 16-17 years old, from time to time (about 2-3 times in 2 years) skin around the forehead of my penis would swell, start to itch and swelled places would become very wet. That continued for 3-4 days and then pass by as if nothing happened.
This time same thing occurred, but with weird red spot on my pubis. At first the spot was itchy, but not all the time. Yesterday skin on that spot started to peel off lightly, and today it changed color from red to light purple.
Skin around my penis is in much worse condition. It too started peel off too and it stings very much if I touch it.
Don't know if this will help, but I had skin infection on my foot from tattoo 2 weeks ago and still am curing it. Dermatologist prescribed 3 ointments, one in antiseptic with antibiotics and 2 kind of pills, one is anti allergic.

I'll be adding photos too. Image #1 is taken yesterday, all of the others, today.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lesions. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, allergies, a few primary skin conditions etc. I would suggest following your doctor’s advice for the time being. If this does not seem to help you may seek a review with him/ her.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
