I have this white, flaky skin on my penis It

Patient : I have this white, flaky skin on my penis. It seems to only be restricted to the head of my penis and nowhere on my shaft. The blotches appear a discolored pink when I run water over them or put on lotion, however, without, they appear as white blotches that peel if I pick at them. I fully peeled one off and the skin under was shiny, but still discolored. It still happened to appear white and flaky sometime later. Another one I kept picking at, broke the actual penile skin and I can see some blood under the skin. These spots are really bad around the head of my penis aesthetically, but there's no pain, itchiness, discharge, blisters, or anything. I've had this for almost a year now and at first it only covered a little bit of the head of my penis but it has actually spread and covered more area of my head throughout the months. I just hate how it looks and it has me worried. I can upload a picture if you need one. Please help. Thank you.
