How to get rid of white stuff/dirt on penis head?

Hi! Not sure which topic this comes under as i was told it's not a sexual transmitted disease however i'd just like confirmation from you as to what it is exactly? As mentioned i visited a clinic around 4 years ago and was told it wasn't a sexual disease just dirt under the foreskin! It does just wash off nice and easy but lets say i don't clean it everyday.... after 3 days it does start to look like more then just dirt! White dirt! I know the dirt probably comes from urine and sperm but some confirmation would be appreciated so that i can stop worrying about it. Thanks!

Its just the smug formed by mucus cells around the prepuce o fthe penis cells, nothing to worry about , but take care to wash it with water while bathing . just as other personal hygeine care. not anything more than that. it smells great (as pheromones) to opposite sex. Try it out as a foreplay to your partner.

Smells great to the opposite sex? You mean Women actually like it? I would have thought they would say 'gross, i'm not sleeping with you till you clean it off'

Hahahahaha..Women love it? Really? It smells like Yukkss..! Anyway for the poster, this is normal, there's nothing to worry about it at all..Mostly, we'll experience it during teenage years, but I supposed, as we get older this thing will be gone..

hi. for a few weeks now i have noticed a hard bump on the shaft of my penis (just below the head, on the left hand side). it feels like its under the skin. it is skin coloured and painless. it feels like a somewhat swelling and is a rather rectangular shape, the size is around 1cm in length and about 3mm in width. it has increased in size a bit. i tried popping it once as a white substance came from it once when doing so (much like a zit). however now nothing happens and it feels like its scarring up. i feel like it is an inflammed gland or something but im not sure. any help would be appreciated

I am circumcised, my penis started itching a lot the last two months. I scratched it a lot and it became swollen and red. A couple of days later, it became very dry and the skin was sort of peeling off. So I peeled the skin and in some rare cases I cut myself. But it's cool. I tried anti-fungal cream and it didn't work, also tried baby powder, did not work. 1 month later i go to visit a dermatologist. He said I have an allergy and prescribed Eodine 2% to put morning and night and 1 pill of AERIUS. Took the treatment for a week and did not work. Last week I decided to do the treatment again, also failed. My penis is scratching now with a sticky fluid on it below the head on the left side of the skin (If I'm looking down.) I am sexually active, but during the second treatment I didn't have intercourse. So, What the hell is up? - Thanks.

Sir

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise

This past summer I had a white patch of skin under the top part of my penis tip. It was milky in color and looked like dry skin. It did not hurt at all. A week later I had the urge to urinate and a slight tingling after I urinated. I went to the clinic and the doctor told me that I had a large amount of protein in my system which had most likely caused an infection. She told me the white patch looked like a friction rub. I had been masturbating a lot.
I met a girl in September and we are still together now. We had unprotected sex in October in November the symptom came back there was a tiny bump on the shaft of my penis with no pain and it again bothered me when I urinated. I went to the Dr. to get a full blood work. Everything came back negative except for Herpes 1.
Its now Feb and I see another pimple like bump on my circumcision line. It does not hurt but looks very pale. It is close to where the first abrasion was located (this are is now darker). I have been paranoid and been putting ointments and rubbing alcohol on my penis to get rid of any germs. Again the bumps never hurt, never flake or fill up with puss like a typical cold sore that I've had years ago on my lip.
Could this been a skin issue due to my girlfriends vaginal fluid (she just went on the pill), hygiene ( i work out 5 days a week), or an STD that hasnt shown up. I have also never seen any discharge from my penis. It takes several weeks for it to go away and normally there is just one.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
