Dry and pale skin on penis head, no pain or itching, had unprotected sex, negative tests for gonorrhea, syphilis. Is this herpes?

I have noticed that the skin on my penis head has dried up and turned pale. it doesn t hurt, I have no itchy or burning sensations and it does not burn when i pee. I am currently applying some monistat cream as I am thinking it is a yeast infection . If i stop or choose not to treat it, the skin begins to dry to a point where it begins to flake and crack up. I have had unprotected sex and this is why I am currently worried. I tested negative for gonorea and syphilis and thought that I had been tested for herpes but wasn t. Could this be herpes

Hi dark pale skin over the penile head cannot be herpes because herpes presents as painful erythematous grouped papules over the penile heaf.this condition can be only fungal infection candidiasis.
It can be cured by application of nizral ointment twice daily and use of flucanazole 150 mg weekly once for 4 weeks
