Resolved Question:

For the last month or so I’ve had redness on the head of my penis and flaky dry skin on the head and the sides of the penis. I have looked up information on STDs online but have not found anything that seems to be a match. Does these problems seem like they might be from a STD and if so what STD would have these kinds of symptoms, I have no burning, and no discharge.
