Thanks for the query, history and the clear picture.
You masturbate 4-5 times in a week.
The dry patch is on the foreskin and obviously will be painful if you move the foreskin as it rolls on.
The picture shows that the patch is a healing wound and occurs on the foreskin may be due to trauma caused during masturbation and being continued on as you must have continued with masturbation too.
I would suggest you to apply liquid povidone iodine 2 to 4 times a day.
Hold masturbation till the wound is healed.
Consult a General Surgeon to see the pliability of the foreskin and consider circumcision is required.
Hope this helps you.
