Fellow uncircumsized men - Un-identifiable white substance on my glans?
I have a problem that`s been haunting me for years.
I have no STD`s. 100% certain. I have encountered it since my early teens.
The problem is that from time to time, I get a white substance on my glans. It looks like a superthin layer of skin that is peeling off. When this white substance appears it may take almost a week before it disappears. It`s almost like my skin dries out.
As a teen, nobody ever told me that I should not use soap directly on my glans, so naturally I wanted to be as clean as possible and used soap daily.
I then heard that soap should not be used directly on the glans and dramatically reduced my use of soap.
I still like to wash it with soap a couple of times a week after sex, because it just don`t feel as clean if I don`t. Naturally I shower daily.
From time to time I still get this problem. What should I do? Should I daily lube myself or is something else wrong? I noticed that I seldom had it when I was on a frequent jelq workout(applying lots of vaselin or oil on a daily basis).
I would like to eliminate this 100 % and it may indeed seem like my glans is drying out, still it should not be necessary for a young healthy male to lube his penis daily to avoid such a problem? It does not hurt or anything, but it is very unattractive.
Curious if anyone else experiences this.
