You have a skin condition called Balanitis which is inflammation of the glans penis. Causes include irritation, infection with bacteria or yeast, trauma while masturbating, harsh soaps or poor hygiene. Without seeing the skin condition it is difficult to make a diagnosis but I would assume the cause is irritation. I would try a mild over the counter cortisone like hydrocortisone twice a day for 10 days and if that is not effective see your local doctor.
