Why is my foreskin area dry ?

I am 15 years old and have dry/white skin under the head of my penis it is not on the head and is on my foreskin area. It does not hurt or itch but to me it is very unattractive, i have tried putting small amounts of vaseline on the affected area but it does not make it any better just not as rough. Do you have any info on this? I am still somewhat a virgin ie:no vag sex yet

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

I think what you mean is a whitish membrane or material over the glans penis.If this is so ,then you need not worry,it is called SMEGMA,
It is completely normal to have this ,its just a over-secretion of sebaceous glands.You juts need to clean it with soap and water daily.Proper hygiene is a must.
