Foul smell from penis with discharge. What is the reason?

Hi, I haven't had sex since December, 2012. I've never experience anything strange until then. A few days or weeks after I smelt an odour from my penis and I realized that there was also a mucous-like substance when I skinned back by penis. The substance is primarily white, but from time to time it may look light yellow or green. I'm 19.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern. I am glad you bring this up in a public forum. What you have is secretions from glands surrounding the glans of your penis. I hope you have good sexual hygiene and clean your genital area by pulling the foreskin back everyday. This should prevent any balanitis which is infection and inflammation of the skin surrounding the foreskin and prevent the bad odor as well. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
