Dry skin on penis with pink bumps. What is this and is have been here for about three months?

Fungal or contact: Rashes in the genital area could be a fungal infection like candida or tinea cruris, which is not considered an std, but could be acquired that way, or a contact dermatitis which is an allergic reaction to a chemical to the condom or a gel in the condom, if you used one.
