Dry, flaky skin on penis, appears in small round patches around the head & excess flaky skin below head. Not itchy/burning or red. What could this be?

Penile dermatitis: There are too many possibilities to make an educated guess. Most genital rashes are not STDs, and this doesn't sound like one. Best to see a doctor sooner rather than later. Start with your personal physician, or perhaps a dermatologist. Good luck.
