In brief: Balanitis

Uncircumcised men are more prone to infection or inflammation of the head of the penis and candida is a frequent cause.
Candida can be transmitted from a woman who has a yeast vaginitis. Since bacterial infections of the head of the penis are less common, i recommend applying an anti yeast cream to see if your inflammation clears up. Anti bacterial cream and topical steroid creams could be tried.
