Is really dry skin on penis a sign?

Hi,

A little over a week ago I had sex with a random partner. The majority of the time I used a condom but toward the end I didn't. I have had a history of dermatitis problems (I have to use creams on my face daily). I've been traveling lately and staying multiple hotels as well. Today I noticed that my skin on the shaft of my penis and scrotum is very red/flakey and dry. I don't see any lesions or signs of blistering. There is no pain when I urinate or to the touch and I have no signs of feeling ill. Could this be herpes?

Thanks so much

usually these symptoms aren't std related.

since you had unprotected sex, you should consider getting full std testing at the proper times. you can get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trich and ngu after 1 week post encounter. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months.
