User :   i am very embraced to tell it to others
Doctor :   do u have any discharge, ulcers, or any bleeding from the penis ?
Doctor :   I understand ur situation, but u need not worry as this will be confidential ?
User :   no i did not have anything of such kind
Doctor :   any burning sensation while urinating ?
User :   i did not have any bleeding at all
User :   went online to do some research but could not find anything similar to my problem. It has a kind of bad smell and I have to rub the head of my penis to get the white thing of. It looks like cheese when I rub. When I shower everything goes away including the smell. However it comes back the next day.
Doctor :   may i know what exactly u think that s a infection?
Doctor :   may i know ur age ?
User :   Its a thick, cheese textured sticky substance, usually white or yellow in color that collects under the foreskin between the head, and just behind the corona
Doctor :   is it thick curdy white watery substance ?
User :   i am 25 yrs
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   thats the smegma and its normal to have it ?
User :   yes it is thick curdy white
Doctor :   may i know how much to you produce ? does it stain your underwear ?
User :   i did not have it so many day
User :   yes its stain my underwear
User :   and it itches a lot
Doctor :   do u think u get about a teaspoon of white material that stains ur underwear ?
User :   and the foreskin is also become very tight
Doctor :   or just a little bit like lees than a drop ?
User :   yes a teaspoon
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   this is called night falls or semen ?
User :   ohh
Doctor :   Do u get this when u masturbate
User :   humm
User :   i did not notice it

User :   no not al all
User :   thats completely different
Doctor :   how often do u masturbate ?
User :   twice or trice a week
Doctor :   OK
User :   may be a lot when i am at free
Doctor :   if u dont have any burning pain while urinating, bleeding, or any other symptom then there is nothing to wporry
Doctor :   Do u have a tight foreskin ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   yes u said that before
Doctor :   In your case, tight foreskin causes the smegma to collect within the forskin and is not cleaned easily when u take a bath
Doctor :   i would advice u to use K Y JELLY to try to withdraw the foreskin very slowly
Doctor :   do not overdo it, if it is very tight
Doctor :   and then clean the foresking and the smegma
User :   ohh ok
Doctor :   smegma is a normal secretion of the mucus glands to keep the penile skin lubricated
Doctor :   so u dont have to worry
User :   but it is very irritating for me to be like this
Doctor :   if u think that u have nightfalls, then that is also normal
Doctor :   i understand
User :   no i dont think i have night fall
Doctor :   to get rid of this , u may need to see a gen surgeon and get a minor procedure to loosen the foreskin
User :   i was thing it would be some king of fungal infection
Doctor :   this may take less than 15-30 minutes
User :   ohh
Doctor :   this is not any infection
Doctor :   its plain normal
User :   ok
User :   so i need to get in touch with a gen surgeon
Doctor :   u need not worry at all
Doctor :   yes
User :   do i need to under go an operation
Doctor :   its not a major operation
User :   ohh
User :   will that affect my sexual life in future
Doctor :   its a very minor procedure lasting less than 15-30 min, done under local ansesthesia
Doctor :   no not at a ll
Doctor :   if the foreskin tightness persists then ur sexual life may be affected
User :   ohh
User :   so after this it will be back to normal doctor
User :   ?
Doctor :   yes definitely
User :   thats should be cool
Doctor :   yes
User :   or is there any tab for this ?
User :   just checking dr
Doctor :   no
User :   ohh ok
User :   no problem
Doctor :   there are no medical stuff that can help
User :   but when i meet the doctor what should i say him
Doctor :   this is a minor anatomical issue and can be corrected surgically (minor)

User :   do you have the link for the videos
Doctor :   give me a minute
User :   sure doctor
Doctor :   Kegel exercises are done as follows: The muscles to be exercised are the pelvic muscles. These can be felt by purposely stopping the flow of urine in midstream and starting again. The muscles that squeeze the urethra and anus are the ones involved.
Doctor :   Remembering what it felt like to control these muscles during urination, try to contract them when not urinating. If the stomach or buttocks muscles tighten, the muscles are not being exercised correctly.
Doctor :   Tighten these muscles for 3 seconds and then relax for 3 seconds.
Doctor :   The exercises should be repeated 10 to 15 times per session. Do at least 3 sessions per day.
User :   ohh ok doctor
Doctor :   this excersiee is helpful to strenthen your pelvic muscles and helps to have a good sex life
Doctor :   i hope u have understood my advice
