Having dry penis with small blisters under the foreskin. Is this yeast infection?

i have been experiencing a dry penis under my foreskin . i shower every day and clean under foreskin with water only. if for some reason i miss a shower because im tired after work, the next time i pull foreskin back the tissue of the tip peels off with the retraction ( only a tiny layer but sometimes can get red and sore). my foreskin is not especially tight either. i have found that applying a small amount of (excuse the term) sexual lube under skin helps considerably but this is not a long term fix. i have heard that it could be a yeast problem....can u have this problem for over 5 years?! one person online said apply aluminium free baking powder under foreskin helps (!) have supplied a picture on next page - this is as bad as it has got ( small blisters appear for a few days)

Thanks for query.yes it is quite possible that it may be yeast infection based on you history of dryness. (Check for diabetes once )I that case you need not worry much.apply antifungal cream twice a day for a week.avoid sex as it may spread to your partner or use condom(not that with spermicidal powder).hope it solves the problem .regards
