Hey all. I am new to SteadyHealth however I recently google'd my problem and found results on this website which were quite helpful. I've read many topics regarding Smegma however I still have yet to find a satisfying answer to my problem.

So heres the deal.

I am an 18 year old who was naturally masturbating, a couple weeks ago, and i noticed white stuff from under my foreskin make its way out. I did not panic as for some reason I've always had this assumption it was kleenex dried up from when i would clean the head after i urinated or masturbated. But then I got thinking.. how would that accumulate under the foreskin. I mean, all I am doing is being clean about it, right? So i looked up some information regarding this white stuff and came to the conclusion that it was in fact Smegma. Upon finding this and how to resolve this issue by improving your hygiene, I noticed that my foreskin should probably be retracting a lot further back than it should. I mean the only stretching it does is upon masturbation. I really never though of pulling it back in the shower to clean it as I as more concerned of the cleanliness of the exterior of the penis. So then i begin for about 4/5 days stretching the foreskin with methods i found on this site (i believe) and I saw major improvements of retraction. I mean now i can actually get it past the ring of my head. Just below the ring of my head --> where most of the Smegma resides.

Ive tried washing this off in the shower but it barely comes off as if its seems stuck to the inner shaft of my penis. Also, I find that i cannot keep it under the shower for too long because the head is soooo sensitive. (Which i kinda developed this weird theory about this sensitivity). '1.' Im hoping taking a bath will help resolve this issue???? If not I'm sure there is some kind of anti-bacteria cream that I could purchase. (I would consult a physician of course)

Other Questions
1. Should the amount of retracting one can do be exactly the same amount of retraction when you are erected? I've watched some videos and I've seen it where the foreskin is retracted below the rim of the head. Is that per se considered a 'norm'. Because I can barely retract it close to that rim of my head when I am erected. I'm assuming this could cause some pain/problems upon intercourse if i was not able to retract my foreskin a certain amount behind the tip?

Theory of Sensitivity.
As I shower and have taken a much stronger approach to my hygiene in this area, I find that retracting the skin and running it under water causes some irritation as my head is so sensitive. Is this because all my life I have not retracted my foreskin that far back and exposing it to air and water and my hand causes this feeling? Will this feeling of irritation go away until the skin toughens up? Which leads to my theory of.. If ones head of his penis is rarely exposed and the shaft underneath the foreskin is very sensitive, wouldn't this make it easier to be aroused more quickly?

Sorry for the lengthy post. I hope someone on hear is willing to read this all and respond with an answer. If they do, I thank them in advance. For anyone out there with this same problem, I hope this can help them aswell.

Thanks, Ecodun

So, I went to see the Doc today. Resolved this issue and now I know what to do.

Smegma is normal and common. To remove it is simple. Run it under the shower or in the bath tub. I find the most effective way is to retract the foreskin behind the head (right under the rim of the head) and massage it out. One obstacle I encountered was removing this smegma from behind the frenulum. Its a tough spot but I imagine everntually it will all come out. I highly assume that you need to ensure your hands are pretty clean for this.

IF your foreskin does not retract that far then you must work on this before you engage in this cleansing process. Stretch your frenulum by pulling the foreskin and holding for a bit. Also, open up the foreskin and make a small tunnel and stretch the skin out. Do this daily. I dont know about you guys but I was able to see results within a week. Its been 2 weeks now and I can almost free willingly pull it all the way back. Imagine what lets say a month could do??

Also, I was told today, youre foreskin does not need to retract fully behind the head when you are erected so if any of you worried about that (like me).. Don't.

Anyway, feel free to post your thoughts and your experiences or if you have any questions. I somewhat feel like an expert about this stuff haha Even then the Doc said, "You sure did some homework on this?" IF you are planning to see the Doc, I would familiarize yourself with all this. It saved me from having an examination because I just knew exactly what he was talking about and everything made sense. Ive read more about mens health in the last 2 weeks than i have my school books! haha

Thanks SteadyHealth!!!

Hi, erm. I also have the same problem. I'm only 14, but im well developed. I'm in a sticky situation, I only figured out a month or two ago that you even needed to clean it as thoroughly as you do. At first i had a bit of a tight foreskin issue, but i've managed to sort this out. Now i can access the parts which need cleaning i cannot actually clean it. i've tried swishing around in warm water but this doesnt work and it is far to sensitive for me to touch for long enough to properly get rid of all the smegma. I need quick help as the relationship i'm in is getting very sexual. And another thing, i don't know what its supposed to be like but the frenulum doesnt look like its going to allow me to stretch my foreskin RIGHT the way back, is this normal?

please help me out,

cheers

Hi, I'm a 17 year old and i have exactly the same problem as some of you guys, I have a VERY sensetive penis, my foreskin is hard to pull back to far and i suffer from smegma. I am not a virgin and found that sex was everything that people say it is and i had no problem with my foreskin pulling back to a point that I was not comfortable with.

I'm way to shy about the appearance of my penis to go to a doctor but have picked up tips all over the place that seem to be helping a little.

First, to get your penis cleaned properly you need to be able to pull your foreskin back slightly below the head, I suffered real problems with this at first but found that pulling it back further and further every day slowly makes it easier to do whenever the need arises.

Secondly, I found it hard to clean my penis because it was so sensetive that even the slightest touch would be painful, I have cleaned my penis a few times by simply bearing the pain for the 30 seconds or so it takes to clean it. I am still finding it hard to do and would love to know less painful ways of cleaning it but for now it does the trick.

Finally, Thank you for the help that you guys are leaving it is definately going to make a difference. (especially now that i know i'm not the only one who doesn't know how to fully combat this problem) I hope i have helped, even if i only helped a little. x

16 this year. not any expert or very experienced but I kidda overcome my problem using my own creative solution. Firstly, massage your penis head by rubbing the foreskin. Do that for 1 month to desensitize it. Next, learn to roll your foreskin back. Do so during your shower when ur penis is wet. Do that 3 times a day. Do that for 1 month. Thirdly, roll back your forskin and rinse it with gentle flowing water for 1 month. Fourthly, roll back your forskin and rinse it with slightly faster flowing water for another month. What you have just done is to desensitize ur head. Next, start showering with ur foreskin rolled back for 1 month. One study found that subjects who retracted the foreskin when bathing were less likely to have smegma accumulation. Do not use warm water. Use cool water. Once the first layer of smegma cleared, use your finger gently slide cross ur penis head. You will collect a white film. Do that daily, ur penis will be clean and clear! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I am 19 and find that the head of my penis is so sensitive, I can't even try to touch it. Although recently I have found a new technique which I find useful and hope you will too, when in the bath pull back the foreskin and leave the penis soak for a couple of minutes, then once you think the smegma is soft enough retract the foreskin and squeeze the head of the penis with the palms of your hands, although some force is required, it does help and is effective (or at least I have found it effective) then occasionally check the level of smegma left and repeat as necessary, I hope this post has helped you with your problems guys and I'm glad that you have had the courage to talk about such a problem with others and that you are all concious about your hygiene.

Hi guestplayer,

It could possibly be an allergic reaction to the baby oil. You could try cleaning it with just water, maybe in the bath.



Let me know how it goes.

I have a very similar problem, i can retract it about half way over the head of the penis. I have smegma, that is hard, not soft, and cannot be removed. I tried in the shower, it still will not come out. I will try some of what you suggested in your second comment when i take a shower in the morning.
Thanks,
Nick

Im an 18 year old male.
I've had many similar issues as people have been posting... high sensitivity, tight foreskin, smegma and all that.

As for the high sensitivity, you pretty much lose it as seen as you become more sexually active, if you worry that it will make your premature than roll your foreskin back and just gently touch it every now and then, the longer the actual head is out of the foreskin the quicker the sensitivity will go.

Tight foreskin, me and my parents didn't know you were meant to stretch the foreskin as a child and through adolescence. My foreskin was so tight so i started by just gentle pulling on either side of the head whilst i was in the shower. After a while i could fit my fingers inside to pull further and eventually it was easy for my to pull my foreskin down.

The frenulum or whatever its called, is a whole other issue. I had sexual relations when I was the young age of 14 and stupidly did not wear protection. I tore my frenulum around 1 cm and the injury involved a lot of blood. After a 10 week recovery and constant cleaning, my frenulum is now stretchy enough for me to pull my foreskin all the way down. Im not suggesting this! I'm warning you to lubricate and "warm her up" first.

Smegma is healthy, wash is off or wipe it off. If you are out and are not in a position to have a shower, go into a toilet, hold your foreskin closed above you head, pee into your foreskin like a balloon and let it out in the toilet, then proceed to wash with toilet paper.

The biggest issue though is body image, I was so caught up in what my penis looked like, (having a foreskin) and how long I lasted (sensitivity) that I created so much stress for myself. Girls do not care and if they do then they arn't worth your time. Focus on them, start googling techniques to please them! your penis is yours... thats not going to change, might as well be confident with it!

Hey, Im 15 years old and i recently discovered my penis needs cleaning :O

Anyway, I managed to get the head almost completely cleared of smegma, but there is a problem. There appears to be a rather large amount of hard smegma in the inner shaft of my penis, near the head. It seems to be stuck to the foreskin, not my "under-penis". i am having problems cleaning it, let alone streching the foreskin down that far. There is about a 1.5cm distance between the ring of my head to the en of the smegam. Any help?
