Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone . If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more).

Penile dermatitis : I would suggest that you seek the services of a dermatologist ASAP. In the meantime I would apply triple antibiotic ointment only.
