your question does pose a few answers that can only be confirmed through a visit to a medical doctor. your symptoms could be from:
- a yeast infection: if it is a yeast infection, your wife would also be infected by it;
- smegma: try washing after sex to remove all the remaining semen that lies between your penis and foreskin. dry semen and skin cells compose smegma that may become an irratant to your penis
- it may be an STI.

as mentioned before, please consult a doctor for a full check-up and correct diagnosis.
