In brief: Get it checked.

Are you circumcised or not? Did you have recent sexual activity involving penile contact? Though your symptoms don't sound serious, STDs & other inflammatory conditions can take many forms & must not be overlooked.
You should discuss this with your primary medical provider, specialist or local STD clinic.

In brief: Patch on penis

There are several possible explanations.
Many ordinary skin diseases like psoriasis, eczema can be on the penis. It could also be a fungal infection or reaction to something that got on the skin of the penis such as a condom or lubricant. It could also just be mechanical irritation from rubbing. If it lasts for more than a few days or is really annoying you should see a doctor
