It could be penile psoriasis although it doesn't have scales. But another possibility is penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN). You should see a dermatologist to have a biopsy.

Is there any chance this looks like an STD or HPV? Or is it leaning towards more of a skin problem?. I believe it can be due to constant dry masturbation (no lube), could this be possible?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No sores, no pain, no itching. Also when looked up close, there are tiny scales or crackness.
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

If it has scales, it could be psoriasis. However, PIN due to HPV infection can't be denied without a biopsy.

Can excessive masturbation with no lubricant cause this? Final question.
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

No. it can't.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
