Hi, I'm 15 and ive never retracted my foresking, i actually didnt know you were meant to. any way, i started to try stretching and i found all this yelllow disgusting stuff under it. the head is really tender and i can't rub it off, ive tried putting it under water but its no good. i heard someone say something about baby oil, but im wondering is it safe to pour it over your dick? im just a bit worried that it wont like weld shut my pee whole or something because it hurts heaps when i touch the head. also, i tried doing the bath stretching thing, and now i can pull the skin pretty far back, but now im worried that if i pull it all the way back i might not be able to get it past the ehad again, and then i would be in big trouble. thanks
Help! Some general questions
Hey bud, that stuff you're seeing is called smegma and its a naturally occuring lubricant that has built up under there because you weren't retracting the foreskin and cleaning under there. Baby oil (or any oil based lubricant) will loosen it enough to remove. Its fine to pour some on and let it soak in or rub it on and let it sit. It may take a few times and that is ok. Be careful not to rub too much as you'll irritate things and that isnt' too pleasant. Take your time with the stretching and retracting - there is no hurry. But once you get the smegma removed, be sure to wash under that foreskin good everyday to keep it from building up again. The head of your penis is going to be super sensitive for a while, that is normal and we can talk about how to lessen that as time goes on. Be patient and work with it daily, you'll be fine.
