Hi iam 21 year old uncircumcized male. I notice that the area on my penis glan around my urethra is turning white. At first i thought it was just smegma or left over cum that was stuck on my penis head. If i was my penis head it doesnt come out, but i can use my fingers to peel it off. It peels of and looks like dead white skin. So now iam thinking it a yeast infection or some sort of fungal infection. I use this anti-fungal creme that come in Monistat 1, you know the stuff use to treat female yeast infection. I also tried staying off masturbation, and the out break of this white skin growing on my tip of my urethra is getting milder. Before using the creme if i mastubated frequently the whiteness is more noticeable. The is also a certain area of my foreskin that is white and has tiny bumps and it goes all the way around my penis.I used tweezers and tried to peel at it and it come of just like white flaky skin, there is no puss of any kind.If i peel of the white layer on my penis glans is thin if i peel it off the normal pink color of my penis head is revealed. I also notice the skin around the area that is greyish white is also dry, like surfer skin sorta leathery.I never had sex before, as for oral sex, i have only used my fingers.
I myself am an uncircumsized male, and i can't diagnose you for sure, BUT I have an idea...An uncircumsized penis is a good, warm, moist place for fungus to grow. I personally occasionally get a fungal infection (I believe it is called mylopecia, or something like that...). I can't be for sure you have this, but for me, the skin on the foreskin starts to dry up like chapped lips. The skin on the head has some of this peely/white problem, kinda like you mentioned.My doctor says it's no big deal, and he gave me a cream called Mycolog (brand name). I believe the generic name for this is Nystatin and Triamcinide. You apply it to the head twice a day, and usually the symptoms start to subside within 24 to 48 hours. I can usually quit treating it in 4 to 8 days, depending on when I realize it's flaring up, and if I'm good about not missing an application. Once I am healed up, then everything is fine and my penis looks normal again. Sometimes it comes more often, sometimes I can go a couple months without having to treat it, but there are usually warning signs that it's coming, and I can head it off with only a few days treatment.This is no professional diagnosis, so have your doctor check it out. If it's just the same thing I have, then it's no big deal, as it's not an STD, and it's not a dangerous infection. If it's NOT the same thing I have, then it may be something more serious, in which case, you'll be glad you went to the doctor instead of putting it off.A few more things...- The fungal condition I was talking about mainly flares up with sexual activity for me, especially after unprotected anal penetration (which I don't do anymore). - If you are getting this without any sexual contact at all, then make sure you are pulling back the foreskin and adequately cleaning everything once a day, and make sure you clean-up thoroughly after masturbating. In general, just try to stay clean! I know that seems obvious, just wanted to cover all my bases.- Avoid having sex while you have it. It's not an STD per se, but the fungus can spread to the female in the form of a yeast infection/vaginitis. (My girlfriend and I regularly argue over who gave who the fungus first if I flare up and she gets a yeast infection, lol.)There, how was that for my first post on this board? Too long? LOL, I'm known for talking too much on the internet, sorry guys.runs off to start the thread I came here to start
I can tell you one thing. I once had a boyfriend who was uncircumcized and he got a yeast infaction and it kinda looked like when u peel after sunbathing. Like you are describing. But since u have never had sex i dont know...
I thought women could only have yeast infection and the transmit it to the men. Good luck
