What is the treatment for bad odor penis?

My penis smells like fish. I shower twice a day very thoroughly. I am circumcised. I don't have a lot of loose skin. I have noticed this in the past year or so. The smell will start as quick as an hour after I shower. It is not semem producing the smell. I do drink beer on a regular basis. I take simvistatin daily.

In every possibility, the bad odor has to be due to the sweat coming out of your groin. You said that you experience the odor after an hour of your shower. That itself is clear that the odor is produced by the sweat. You may have excess sweat around your groin. It is very difficult to control this. Reduce salt intake and exercise well.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
