Dry cracked skin on penis

For a few months now I have had extremely dry skin right below the head of my penis, it is so extremely dry that it cracks the skin, these cracks are not there all the time but the redness does not go away, the skin almost feels tight. I have been applying moisturizer which seems to help for a little but but thenext day it is just as bad, it may be spreading and I have no idea what it could be, most thugs I have read lead me to believe it is a male yeast infection, although herpes can present itself in many ways. It is very painful when irritated, just want to know what it is and maybe some treatment options....

I think its time you see a dermatologist or a doctor. we can't tell you what it is but it doesn't sound like any STD.
