Thanks for writing to us.

The whitish substance that you are seeing on your frenulum is most probably a deposit of dry smegma. It usually gets deposited if you do not wash it frequently.

The only thing you need to do is to just wash it away while showering. Gradually all the white substance will come off easily.

In future, to prevent any such deposition just keep the area clean and dry and wash it thoroughly everytime you take a bath.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
