Hi,
Thanks for using health care magic.

I have gone through your history.

It is very common to have redness over head of penis i.e. glans penis after masturbation as blood flow tend to be on higher side during activity.

Whitish material beneath the foreskin is not the dead skin but it is smegma collected under the foreskin.

Please revert to me in case if you have
-Tightness of foreskin
-Inability to pull foreskin
-Any discharge.

Else, I do not think you need to worry much.

I hope I am able to address your concern.

Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for reverting to me.

For the dead skin, you should pull up the foreskin, wash the part daily with soap water so smegma will not be collected.

It is not possible to stop the semen discharge as it is natural process by which means old sperm go out of body either by sex or masturbation or by night fall.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Please revert to me in case if you have further query.

Hi,

Thanks for reverting to me.

It is almost daily process to form the smegma.

It contains old sperms and other secretions of glands surrounding penis.

The secretions increase during sexual excitement phase.

So it needs to washed while taking wash.

There is no need to worry that it comes back.

I hope I have address your concern.

Hi,
Thanks for reverting with concern.

You need not to go to a doctor, as it is normal condition.

As nightfall is normal process of body, you cannot control it totally.
Please remove any guilt or stigma if any, of doing wrong from your mind.

You can divert your mind into other routine activities.

I hope I have addressed your concern.
