Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Few drops of urine and some times semen get collected between head of penis(glans penis) and the skin over it;this is called smegna and it is a white powery substance.Just clean it with water and soap and it will be fine.To maintain hygiene it is better.
Thanks

Hi on the shaft of the penis just below the head to the right side I discovered a white “seed” type thing just under the skin. It developed about 6 months ago and has not grown nor does it cause any pain. I can move it around somewhat under the skin, it’s a little smaller than a sun flower seed. What could this be and can it be taken care of? Thank you!

I believe I had a zit on my penis. I popped it and the white dirt came out like it does on my face when I pop it. I looked up if it was possible to have zits on your penis and of course, being online I don t know what is true or not. Sources kept saying it could be herpes...it burns a little where the zit is, but since I popped it the burning is slowly going away. What does all this mean?

Can spermicide or cetaphil face lotion cause penis irritation? My gf and I used a spermicide strip for sex one day, and I masturbated with the lotion the day after, now my penis tip is red and sometimes has white discharge and it hurts after I cum/pee

this has happened periodically thru-out my life starting at about 17, it began again about a week ago again , i'm 40, when i urinate, it becomes painfull and i bleed (the tip of the penis) the blood is at the start of my urination, so it's at the beginning of my urination, it's not an internal problem but in the tip of the penis. Why does this happen? it bleeds for 2-3 days then stops, then i'm okay, but it does this maybe 2-3 times a year, Why?

I'm a heterosexual male, even if i have a long lovemaking session (60-90 minutes) with a women it seems like the tip can't take the punishment, i have started bleeding during sex, usually if i'm making love doggie-style, it's extremely vulnerable. I'm serious this is not a joke. Have you heard of anything like this?

Hi; I am 28 years old; 1.84m and 94kg. Hello. Since my puberty (has appeared 12 years) I have pearly papules on the corona of the glans that does not bother me particularly, but one day I'd probably be in bed with another girl and I think it will not enjoy ... So is it possible to get rid of?

I have a question about the penis frenulum . During sex the frenulum ripped and cause bleeding. Now it's no longer attached to the urethra . Will the frenulum heal and grow back to its normal state? Will this make it harder for me to ejaculate?
