Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hey im 13 years old and male.
Ive satrted puberty but i have loads of smegma i wash 2 twice a day and clean my foreskin but i still get it ?
is there anyway i can stop it ?


Probably not. It sounds like you're doing the right thing.

Since you're 13, you're still undergoing changes and your hormones are still surging, so until you're through puberty, I suspect this will continue.

Keep up the daily cleaning, especially twice if you need it.

Good luck.


Hi Guest:

You will always have 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 long time such as under a foreskin that is not retracted. Olive oil has been recommended for softening and removing hardened smegma.

It is really easy to painlessly clean out 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.

Don’t use soap inside your foreskin because soap dries out the skin oils essential for good health.


Keep up with the washing. Thats a good move. You should start using a penis health creme containing Vitamin A every day too. The Vitamin A will destroy the odor-causing bacteria down there. Hope this helps.
