Dermatitis: I would think that either it is due to irritation from friction or a low grade yeast infection. If due to irritation due to friction then a moisterizer and avoiding the friction that is irritatiing the glans will work. If a low grade yeast infection then over the counter Clotrimazole two to three times a day will also work a majority of the time.
