Hello,
Thanks for the query.
You probably have a thrush or some fungal infection on the burnt mucosa of glans due to use of dettol.
Thrush (yeast) and fungal infections can be caused by certain soaps but sometimes they just happen. These infections can cause excessive smegma  or cracks in the foreskin opening or some swelling.
There is no need to apply dettol on your penis as it can cause local burn.
Always wash your penis head with water.
There is mo need to use soap on your penis as it can XXXXXXX your penis of its natural lubrication.
Try using CANESTAN ointment locally for 5 to 7 days.
If there is no improvement, then you would  need to see a doctor for that. 

I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

I have recently been treated for a UTI,when i finished taking the Rx I still had same symptoms, them I was treated for Chlamydia because I told the doctor I had pain after I use soap in the shower of what I though was my Urethra.Ccome to find out, ( I feelso Stupid) it is my clitoris. when i press back the hood I see a white build up. After not being satisfied about the chlamydia diagnosis I searched online and came to the conclusion of Smegma? I've never heard of this but the pics are exactly whats going on with me. How can I treat this? And why does it burn so bad when I urinate after the shower. (Thats the only time i Have pain while urinating).
