Exclamation Fishy Smell On Penis

I hope someone can solve this for me as I do not know what to do.

About 2 years ago I started to notice an odor coming from my penis, sort of fish-like odor. I do not know where it came from and it's getting to the point that as soon as I step out of the shower, the odor is back. I am circumcised and have never had unprotected sex. Can someone please tell me what could be causing this and how to get rid of it once and for all?

I am pretty sure it's originating from the head...the head of my penis has semi-deep cracks in the head and when I have wiped it with tissue, the fish smell was on the tissue, strong.

Thanks for any advice!

I wish I could tell you what it is, but I am going to advise you to go see your doctor! I can only guess it is some kind of bacterial infection, but I don't want you misled. Get to the doc, caring for your unit is worth the visit, isn't it?

Gosh, go to the DOC! NOW!

It could be fungal infection, as the smell indicates. The anaerobic respiration of the bacteria might cause this. Maybe it's due to over washed. Abnormal skin sensitivity?

Hope you get well soon!

Re: Fishy Smell On Penis

A fishy smell is usually the sign of a yeast or fungal infection, but I don't know how you could have that being that you're circumcised. So, I'm not sure.
