you can try some moisturizers on the tip of the penis after you shower each day

also you can change to a milder soap like dove and see if that helps.

and use something like aquafore which is a good moisturizer which can help the tip of the penis not to be so dry.

I don't think so.

this would not be a typical symptom of STD.

STD tends to cause things like penile discharge
