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?

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.

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?
