I am a 50yo male, not seaxually active with a partner and masterbate 1-2x per week. I am on medication that has lengthend the time to ejaculate. I have a small white patch of skin on the side of my penis measuring 1/ x 14 inch. I am circumsised but am over weight so the penis rectracts back into the skin. I wash daily but I do notice that my penis and groin smell after a couple of hours. I do know one ot two of my meds causes me to sweat excessively during any exertion. The White patch stays moist. But, after a lengthy masterbation (masturbation) session, the patch disapears, only to return the following day. The white patch gets more pronounced after each day of non contact. I did see my Dr and a skin specialist who prescribes a topical ointment that was $$$ and caused it to break out and scab as part of its treatment, but it has stayed right there. This has been an issue for 12 years.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections (STD or non-STD), inflammations, cysts, warts, fordyce spots etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
