It is possible that you might have developed an infection. It is also possible due to your description that it is fungal. There can be adhesion of skin layers during infection which may be preventing retraction.

You should get examined by a doctor, get some tests and start medication. This will resolve your problem.

Thanks for posting your query.
Do not worry, it is normal.Whitish cheesy stuff under fore skin when you retract is Smegma. It is the secretion of a sebaceous gland which keeps glans penis moist.
You may wash it or will disappear after frequent retraction and sexual activities.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
