Cracked foreskin with burning sensation
I am 35 years old healthy male and having strange problem for the first time in my life. A week back I had discovered that there is a cracked white layer under my foreskin near the head of the penis associated with mild burning sensation. I had pain on the foreskin when I was pulling it back to clean it with water. Being uncircumcised, I never had any trouble earlier while pulling down my foreskin. There is a whitish layer under my foreskin which goes off when I clean with water. But the cracks are not getting healed even though I am trying to keep it dry for past one week. I am abstaining from any kind of sexual activity since the problem has started. Please advise.

hi ! generally a white creamy matter surrounds the head below foreskin esp in case of uncircumcised penis, this is called smegma. it is due to remains of seminal fluids prosotatic fluids and shed of skin cells, it has to be cleaned regularly as a measure of hygiene in health, if it remains long time, it causes light burning and itching and its not dangerous, if it is not better with in a week or so, consult a general physician and get checked to rule out any infections you might be suffering from and go for treatment if diagnosed.
