Brief Answer:
You need to get circumcised.

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

The white substance that is getting collected beneath the foreskin is dried secretion of the glans penis (Smegma).
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.

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.
Dr.Patil.

Can spermicide or cetaphil face lotion cause penis irritation? My gf and I used a spermicide strip for sex one day, and I masturbated with the lotion the day after, now my penis tip is red and sometimes has white discharge and it hurts after I cum/pee

this has happened periodically thru-out my life starting at about 17, it began again about a week ago again , i'm 40, when i urinate, it becomes painfull and i bleed (the tip of the penis) the blood is at the start of my urination, so it's at the beginning of my urination, it's not an internal problem but in the tip of the penis. Why does this happen? it bleeds for 2-3 days then stops, then i'm okay, but it does this maybe 2-3 times a year, Why?

I'm a heterosexual male, even if i have a long lovemaking session (60-90 minutes) with a women it seems like the tip can't take the punishment, i have started bleeding during sex, usually if i'm making love doggie-style, it's extremely vulnerable. I'm serious this is not a joke. Have you heard of anything like this?
