Detailed Answer:
Thanks very much for your question. I am an expert in sexual and penis health and will be happy to help.

There are a couple of things this could be. One, this could be dry skin, or dermatitis. It is very important to wash your penis frequently, and to keep it moisturized with petrolatum jelly. This is the most likely problem. Second, this could be a fungal infection. In this case, you may need an antifungal powder like clotrimazole an oral antifungal agent like ketoconazole, which will clear this up in a matter of days.

If you are sexually active, I would obtain STD testing to rule out herpes and gonorrohea.
