We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry much. The whitish substance you are talking about could possibly be a mixture of semen particles, dust, urine leftover and some microorganism. Such a mixture present in underneath the foreskin and round penis head is very normal and of course, it causes itching. Washing the area occasionally should help. There is nothing to worry about.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
