Hi guys, 23 year old male here.Ok, so the tip of my foreskin seems to be clumping/"overlapping" up and sticking together. This started happening a few days ago when I had finished masturbating with lubricant. My penis was smelling the other day too. When I was masturbating there was some white stuff (not my semen) which smelled bad too. It's not sticking to the glans. I can retract my penis when flaccid and erect fine.My penis doesn't seem to smell as bad today but the foreskin is still clumping/sticking. It's not sticking to the head and I can retract it fine. It seems to be sweaty under there and it's summer here too which probably doesn't help.I regularly clean it in the shower everyday.I assume we can post photos here? Here's a photo of the head of my penis (not erect and not retracted obviously) to show you what I mean about the sticking/clumping. It's not tight. Sorry about the image host. It was the only one I could think of that would let me upload these.http://img291.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=520183899_DSC01088_123_385lo.jpg And here is one retracted in case you want to see it. Again not erect obviously.http://img296.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=520190387_DSC01094_123_527lo.jpgDoes anyone know what could be causing this sticking/clumping? Humid weather causing sweat down there? Thanks.
Hi, Blasko. Welcome to A2A.I am unfamiliar with your situation, but others probably will be. It's been a little slow here recently and people aren't checking in as often as they were. Be patient.
Hi Blasko, welcome.
I assume the white stuff is smegma - perhaps you are producing more because of the warm weather. It's a mixture of secretions and shed skin cells. When bacteria work on it (again especially likely in hot humid conditions) it produces a bad smell and it also tends to irritate the glans and foreskin - perhaps that is what is happening here. If so, regular washing should fix it in time.
Hi Blasko,Washing regularly with water (not soap as it can alter your PH) should help to clear this up.You may also have a problem with candida- a yeast which grows in our systems and on our skin. Check your diet and see whether you've eaten anything particularly starchy en mass, such as bread, pasta and potatoes as these all feed candida, reduce and you should be fine!All the best!Em
