Causes Of The Tip Of The Penis A Lot Of Smegma And Itching?
Hello, I want to ask it’s been around a few weeks the tip of my penis feels itchy. and many Smegmas (White-White Blemishes under the foreskin). even though before that it was very rare. but now every day there is a lot of smegma, even though I have cleaned it everyday, but tomorrow there must be more and there are quite a lot of them. and what makes me very worried is itching. especially when there is a lot of smegma, it feels very itchy. but if it has been cleansed, the itching is reduced. when touched or cleaned it will still itch even though all smegma is clean, it still feels itchy when touched or rubbed. but if there is a lot of smegm (not cleaned), it is not touched or even when you are sitting around it feels very itchy.
Hlo Rudolph, Thank you for the question.
Does it feel itchy, but your penis looks red or swollen? Itching in the area of your penis can be caused by balanitis, or inflammation of the head of the penis. Balanitis can be caused by the following conditions:
irritation for example due to the use of soap or laundry detergents fungal infections bacterial infections sexually transmitted infections The risk of a man experiencing balanitis will increase if he does not maintain proper hygiene of the genital area especially if not circumcised, has diabetes, takes oral antibiotics. You should immediately see a doctor directly. Doctors need to do a check on your penis to determine the cause. If it is proven to be balanitis, the doctor will provide treatment according to the cause. In the meantime, please do the following suggestions:
Avoid cleaning the penis by using soap, use warm water to clean the penis and smegma. Smegma buildup can cause irritation, avoid using tight pants, wear underwear that is dry and easily absorbs sweat. Hopefully this information is useful.
