Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it's Balanitis inflammation of the foreskin and head of the penis.

It can be caused due to poor hygiene,bacterial infection other than STD,use of harsh soaps,not rinsing soap off properly while bathing,rough sex.

And you should try OTC Neosporin ointment on it.

If there is itching then 0.5% hydrocortisone cream can be tried.

Keep the area clean and dry.

Also avoid sex for a while.

Urinalysis can be done to rule out infection.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for 3-5 days.

Wear loose fitted cotton clothes to prevent friction.

Use OTC Abzorb powder if you have excessive sweating and moisture.

And see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
