Hi sivam ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The white stuff can be smegma which happens due to collection of urine drops as well as semen and if there is pain ;itching or redness then it can be inflammation(balanitis).Non-retracting skin can be due to phimosis.It will be better to get physically examined by a surgeon to find out the problem.If it is phimosis then you may require circumcision which the surgeon will advise after examination and if you want he will do it.
Thanks

I however do not get any burning sensation while urinating? Please advise?

Hello Doctor, My baby is now 6 months he had phimosis (balloning and narrow stream of urine). We had taken him to doctor for thrice and thrice he slightly retracted his foreskin until meatus was shown, my baby s foreskin shown little tear for 3 times and he prescribed ofloxacin antibiotic and clobetasol however we did not use clobetasol. He suggested us to slightly retract the foreskin everyday once while bathing and also to have a circumcision after baby attains 1 year of age. Now for 4th time we have taken again him to the same doctor yesterday due to balloning and narrow stream of urine again the doctor retracted foreskin and prescribed the same antibiotic (ofloxacin) for 4 th time. Can we use the same antibiotic repeatedly? Is there any alternative to this condition? Thanks, Ramya
