Dr. Taher Kagalwala MD

Are you sure it is not smegma (the secretion of the penis under the fore-skin)? This is normal.

Dr. Mandar Koranne MD

Yes, if you can remove them easily, remove & keep your penis..glans (tip) clean. Smegma keeps on forming lifelong. If there is pain/redness/discharge, show it to your doctor once. Thanks.

Dr. Shanthi.E MD

That may be due to the secretions or smegma. It is normal.
