Not likely: It may just be traumatic sexual intercourse with mild bruising and skin irritation or tear.

Foreskin: Unless you have irregularities elsewhere on your skin, a skin disorder is less likely and more likely is that this is due to friction and/or reaction to a condom.

Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, i would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma.
