Likely to be Balanoposthitis

Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear Sir

Based on your description it is likely to be Balanoposthitis secondary to inspissated smegma which is white secretion which is normally secreted.
It would be very helpful if you could provide clinical photograph for further assessment.

Take care

Best regards
