It sounds more likely as "dirty" particles more than yeast infection. This is because when this part is getting humid and you are wearing underwear (cotton), then, some particles of the underwear are mixed with the moisten area and leading to white thing under the foreskin.

You should keep it clean and dry, this is enough.

If the itching starts, then, you can have any anti-fungal cream containing clotrimazole.
