Hi..... Smegma can be prevented by washing the genitals with warm water at least once a day..... It is particularly important for uncircumcised males to wash underneath their foreskin, as this is where smegma can build up..... do not wash your genitals with strongly-perfumed soap or shower gel, or use deodorants or other such products, as this may lead to irritation. ....
