Redness then peeling foreskin...STD or skin irritation??

I noticed a couple of days ago that my penis head had very small red bumps on it and also the foreskin area covering the head was a red as well(the area just underneath the head when i pull foreskin back) It didn't hurt or of any discomfort was just a bit red. Today i've noticed that the area of my foreskin has started to peel a little which was most noticebale after i had a shower. A bit like the skin peeling after youre sunburnt. I've had no other symptoms other than it being red and then starting to peel a bit today.

4 days ago i had rather vigorous protected sex (not orally though) and i remember masturbating the day of or before whereby the head of penis was really dry so im hoping that it is a skin irritation from rubbing....although i am concerned it could be something else such as herpes. I havent had any flu like symptoms or blisters etc.....just the redness, dryness and some skin peeling.

I've included some pics, including one with the skin peeling

What do you think it could be?

Concerned..

I seem to have very similar symptoms to yours... did you ever find out what the problem was?  How did you treat it and how long did it take?

Thanks much!

Peeling skin is usually from a fungal infection, like yeast or jock itch, but it does warrant a trip to the doc.
