Why does my boyfriend's penis smell so bad?

I have a question regarding my boyfriend... We have been together over 2 years, and the whole time we ve been together, his penis has smelled terrible. I told him he needed to start washing after every time we have sex, but that still doesn t seem to help. Even after he showers he smells bad, and it s not just B.O. I was tested several months ago and am clean. Should he see a doctor? It is hard for us to get to a physician. I just want to know if there is a way to solve this problem here at home. Besides the bad smell, he has no other symptoms whatsoever. And some times, very rarely, he doesn t smell at all. Any information would help!!

The bad odor comes from deposited smegma in the glans penis or may be due to infection.If it is not possible to see a doctor at this moment he can try some ointment like candid or surfuz.

as discussed by u...ur symptoms shows that there is some smegma formation at glans of penis and it may be due to ur vaginal discharge too...then u need to take somme precaution part that avoid sex during periods, do cleansing before and after sex, apply some ointment before sex, use good condoms etc.
