Brief Answer:
Itch may be due to fungal infection or abrasions

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

You have not mentioned whether you are married/bachelor; and about your sexual activity.

However, from the information provided, the persistent itch under the foreskin may be due to either

- A fungal infection, usually contacted during sexual intercourse with infected female; or,

- during masturbation/sexual intercourse when some break in the skin takes place, though which fungal infection enters the skin. A 2 weeks' course of anti-fungal drug, such as, fluconazole 150mg daily will cure the infection.

* The whitish stuff under the foreskin is nothing but secretions from the inner surface of foreskin. That is normal and its function is to keep the space between foreskin and penis lubricated.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further clarifications, I will be happy to answer them.

Have a good health,

Dr. Rakesh Karanwal
