Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring.

You are possibly having Candidal Balanitis - a fungal infection of the glans penis. The diagnosis can be confirmed by a KOH mount. You need to maintain proper hygiene in the glans and surrounding area. The treatment would be application of Candid (Clotrimazole 1 % cream ) over the glans penis, groove and the undersurface of foreskin twice daily IN CONSULT with your Doctor,

Let me know if your wife is also having some symptoms - such as white discharge. In that case she will also need treatment. Please note, the diagnosis can be confirmed only by testing. You can also do a fasting blood sugar test to rule out diabetes.

Hope this helps
Feel free to ask followups
