I noticed yesterday a burning in the tip of my penis after urinating. I realized if I rinsed it off right after it didn't burn. I also have white looking stuff in there but its not discharge...nothing comes out. Please tell me this is nothing serious!
Hi Junior, its a simple UTI, we all get them at some time, just get down to you doctor for some antibiotics, or you could try some cranberry juice 3 times a day for 7 days, the choice is yours.
The white stuff is called smegma and it is a normal build-up of dead cells and urine under the foreskin. Make sure to pull your skin all the way back while urinating, and while in the shower. Personal cleanliness is important in reducing smegma.
