In brief: Get treated STAT
It's an infection that probably started at the distal end (further out) of the penis, drained into the lymphatic channels and is a form of blood poisoning.
Sclerosing means that it is destroying tissue in its path, and most common cause is a group strep a (streptococcus pyogenes). Don't fool around: it could cost you your penis...Or your life.
