should i be concerned?

my boyfriend is having a problem with his genitals. it is kind of flaky, almost like its peeling in one spot on the top right before the tip and he says it sometimes itches. is this something to be concerned about?

some kind of bacteria got on his penis and this usually happens during sex. just tell him to clean himself everyday and apply vaseline on the dry spots daily. it will probably take several months for it to disappear but nothing is wrong with him (in my opinion)
