since no one really teaches males "personal hygeine" and circumcision is the majority this can/will happen. the "deposits" you noticed under your foreskin is called smegma. both men AND women have it in the mammal species. although smegma in circumcised men is less common due to the abscence of a foreskin. basically smegma is moisture created from the foreskin to lubricate the foreskin in amounts. usually if you can see it, it means that if you are uncircumcised you need to retract the foreskin and clean your penis on a daily basis. since smegma is normal, there is no need to scrub or overclean. only a small amount of soap and daily cleaning is required.

some would recommend circumcision to rid smegma in males, however, circumcision is not necessary. BOTH men and women require daily hygeine.

That substance is smegma.
Smegma is a natural, normal, harmless, and healthy substance. It is a mixture of exfoliated skin and skin oils. Smegma collects under the foreskin. It is normally white in color.

It can get irritating if it stays for a long time without being washed away, so it is good practice to wash under the foreskin periodically.

Accumulated smegma may get hardened and difficult to remove if it stays a longtime such as under a foreskin that is not retracted. Olive oil has been recommended for softening and removing hardened smegma.

If you cannot retract your foreskin, then here are some ways to clean out the preputial cavity:

It is really easy to clean your foreskin without retracting it. Here are two ways:

1. Urine is a sterile substance when it leaves the body so it is an excellent washing agent. Pinch the tip of your foreskin shut when you pee. Let the urine fill up your foreskin. You will see your foreskin balloon because of the urine inside. Then release the tip and all of the urine inside your foreskin will come gushing out and clean out whatever is inside. This is best done in the shower as it tends to be messy.

2. Get a rubber bulb ear syringe from a drug store, pharmacy, or chemist’s shop. These are designed to squirt warm water into ear canals to clean them out. They also work great for cleaning out foreskins. Fill the ear syringe with warm (not hot) water and then insert the tip of the syringe into your foreskin. Then squeeze the bulb and a jet of warm water will squirt into your foreskin and clean out whatever is inside.
