In Reply to: Whats under my Penis Head????? posted by DJ on December 05, 2000 at 23:31:43:
: Someone help!! I never noticed it before, but I have found hard white stuff under my Uncircumsized penis skin do you know if its harmful or what is it?
Its called smegma and it can be harmful. I too am uncut so I know exactly what your're talking about. The area under the foreskin is a breeding ground for bacteria because it stays warm and moist. Smegma is a buildup of different bacteria that needs to be removed for several reasons. It can happen on a daily basis or over a period of time so every day and even several times a day you need to clean under the foreskin with soap and water. The foreskin should be completely moved over the head and the area cleaned well. This will remove the smegma and prevent the possibility of damage and that awful odor that comes with the smegma. In some cases where this area isn't kept clean a cicumcision may be required after infection has set in....so take care of it, its the only one you'll ever have!
