Brief Answer:
You need to get circumcised.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Phimosis.

Normally foreskin should be freely retracted over glans penis and after erection too to have pain free penetration of vagina during intercourse.

The white discharge is smegma (dried secretion of the mucus glands of glans penis) that is being collected beneath the foreskin.

Please consult qualified General Surgeon or Urologist for clinical examination to confirm the diagnosis.

You need to get circumcised .This is a simple surgery done under local anaesthesia as a out patient procedure and offers permanent cure so that you will have enjoyable sexual life for rest of your life.

No cream or medication will help to cure and resolve your problem.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

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).
