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 recently had a circumcision at 43, i have had it done for certain partners are more agressive and grab foreskin so hard it tugs frenulum and a noticeable red vein appears which make eredtion painful and i have to abstain for several days until i heal then have to inform partner to touch me gentler...anyway my soft penis is rather small, but erect grows to 7.5 8 inches with a good amount of girth....at least i and my partners were happy. anyway i had circumcision and noticed immediately that underside of my skin below the head was stitched to the testicles...this is causing me difficulty getting erection, and when i do my testicles are all way up the underside of my shaft making penetration difficult, and also size is considerably smaller which is totally frustrating for both me and mygirlfriend...prior to circumcision my testicles were at bottom of my shaft allowing full penetration and also the enjoymeny of testices making contact with my girls butt....help me can this be taken care of? i want my normal size back and to be able to penetrate fully....help me!!

two days ago, while i am taking bath, accidentally some undiluted dettol spilt over my penis. Today afternoon, I found my foreskin and the skin beneath the penis very dry and scaly. It appears that as though it was burnt ... Is it due to the dettol action or is it due to some other infection ?

I had a penis frenuloplasty 4.5 weeks ago and I have a couple of questions. Firstly, there seem to be a couple tiny bumps (skin tissue?) at the top and bottom of the frenulum, is that normal? Secondly, when I pull the foreskin down initially it feels uncomfortable. I think its because the frenulum is a bit tough and it stretches out. Once it stretches out it feels completely fine and comfortable.

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....
