Hi Ela,

Welcome to HCM.
The white things that you see under the foreskin is called smegma, which is the debris that collects under the foreskin. It needs to be regularly washed out while bathing, otherwise later on it creates problems. The white things that you now see fixed, are small pustules. Make it a habit to regularly wash the area with soap and water by retracting the foreskin fully backwards and these pustules will gradually disappear.
