Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 2 years ago
This sounds like you may have a condition called balanitis. In diabetics, this is commonly due to a fungal infection. You need to get into see your doctor or a urologist for an examination and they may need to put you on a topical antifungal and steroid cream called betamethasone with clotrimazole. If this does not work after six or eight weeks , you may need to see a urologist to consider having a circumcision done to fix this problem permanently. Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
