Hi there. I'm 20 years old and I have an uncircumsized penis. I seem to have a problem with the odor of my penis. It gets a strange musky smell every so often. Also, my urine seems to have a different smell sometimes. I do get a very slight uncomfortable feeling in penis sometimes, but only rarely. If you could give me your input that would be excellent.
Infection should certainly be considered. A urinalysis should be done to evaluate for a urinary tract infection, or prostate infection. If positive, antibiotics pills would be given. A digital rectal exam by a physician can also be considered to evaluate the prostate.
Another consideration may be balanitis, which is an inflammation of the glans penis (the sensitive tip of the penis). A bacterial or fungal infection can preciptitate this condition, and normally improved hygeine or topical antimicrobial or antifungal medications can be used to treat this.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
