In brief: Inflammation
Swelling of the skin around the head of the penis could be a sign of inflammation or even a penile skin infection known as balanitis.
I recommend carefully cleaning the foreskin with soapy water, keeping it dry, and having your primary care provider or urologist look at it as soon as you can.
