Dry cracked skin and dark mark on penis

Hi im a 25 year old male I have been with my partner for 5 years so i don t think its an STD but there is a small dark mark on penis as well as little dots on the mark they are all dark. The skin around head has been dry and has been cracking which is painful. When i pull the skin back where the skin has been dry the skin goes white all around the edge of the penis. Any suggestions i think it might be a yest infection though im not sure.

I think it is due to poor cleaning of the part,while taking bath you Evert your skin on glance part of penis and clean it daily so that smegma does not collect underneath the skin and skin remain greasy and smooth.
This is the reason there is cracking on tip of penis.
If you fail to do so it is likely that you may develop phymosis or infection called belanoprostitis.
