Child having frequent itching, pain in penis, redness, whitish material around. What could this be?

My 9 year old boy complains of frequent itching and pain in his penis specifically where the head and the fold meet( circumcised). Some redness noted. I don t know if it is from rubbing it. it looks like raw too. When he pull down the skin fold , we saw whitish material around it, not a discharge or drainage. So what do you think he has?

Thanks for your query.Your 9 year old child has redness of glans penis and collection of thick white material around glans This is a accumulated smegma a normal oily secretion of glans which causes itching of the glans.You have to train the child to wipe out the smegma everyday and clean it while taking the bath If neglected it may result into infection and Phimosis.
