Post increased smegma

Past 2 years I've been noticing an increased production of smegma. It seems my penis is shedding more skin than before and can become red/sore sometimes after ummm extended sex.. also.. i don't want to get too explicit but I enjoy masturbating dry with my foreskin pulled back and it can get sore from that also. i'm in my early 20's and have recently become more sexually active with different partners but always play it safe. i've been tested negative for STD's also. When my penis is sore and erect (shiny head opposed to more matted head) and look at it under a magnifying glass i can see small red pores. Is this normal? They don't bleed but they can almost look like small sores when magnified. im kinda stoned right now so maybe my explanation isn't as clear as it can be... but anyway im still concerned. Could it be some STD? is that why the skin on my penis head is thinner? Do circumcised penis heads (lol) generally have thicker skin? how can I make the skin on my penis more durable? I heard on the discovery channel that circumcised men have a lesser chance of contracting HIV than uncirc'd men.

sounds like you have a yeast infection. any increase in smegma is suspicious. any over the counter stuff for women, like monistat, should work fine.
as far as uncircumcised guys and AIDS, don't believe everything you hear. medicine is always trying a smear campaign on the foreskin, otherwise, it would eliminate a stream of easy money. if circumcision really helped prevent AIDS, the US infection rate would be very low, and instead, it is among the highest in the world.
enjoy your foreskin. you are a lucky guy.
