Hi,thanks for query.There is nothing to worry about.What you could have is some fungal infection in your private parts.The white substance that you see from inside the skin of penis may smegma,the normal secretions that are collected there.You need to clean once a week.For infection please talk to your doctor as diagnosis is must before treatment.Please avoid tight fitting clothes,wear more of cotton clothes.bye.

I am a 36 year old male. 3 days ago after showering, I noticed one of the small veins in my scrotum sack is bleeding. It is a small vein but took me about 2-3mins to stop the bleed. There are veins very near to the surface of my scrotum skin. Today another location shows the same symptom. This has never happened before. I suspect I might have injured the veins during shower as I rub with body scrub (those that looks like nets). Need some advice. Thank you.

Hi doctor,
I have oily skin and dry skin at the same time. My skin is usually oily but once i wash it, it becomes dry. Then i use a light moisturizer. Once i do that my skin starts looking oily. After sometime my skin becomes dry and flaky again. It is like dandruff on my skin in some parts. I also have cystic acne and there are marks on my skin. I have stopped using soap or facewash on my skin and wash it with only water. Still the problem persists. Please tell me what to do.
