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.
