Brief Answer:
Likely to be Balanoposthitis

Detailed Answer:
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

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).
