Hi XXXXXX,Welcome to Healthcare Magic.The whitish color of glass pens can be due to 1. If you are not sexually active and do not clean the penis with skin retracted then it is due to smegma, which is secretions of local penis land and deposits locally in such a case to give whitish appearance.Other possibility is a Candida infection which is a fungal infection.To clear the confusion clean the penis with XXXXXXX warm water and soft soap for two three days and then see.If due to candida it will persist and otherwise would be clear.I hope that helps.
