So for the past couple of weeks, I've noticed a very strong fishy odor coming from my penis. I am 21, circumcised. I am overweight, but I have been fixing my diet over the past year and have never had this occur before.
Back in December I had several blisters appear on my shaft and head, which were very painful and scabbed, pealed off, and completely healed. I never sought medical attention because at the time I did not have health insurance.
But those are completely gone. And this smell is very strong. I used to get that smell very faintly if I hadn't showered in over a day. But usually I shower every single day and I clean my penis very thoroughly. Although I am circumcised, there is a little bit of foreskin left. I always pull it all back and clean very thoroughly with Old Spice shower gel.
I do not think it is thrush or any kind of UTI or yeast infection, for I have no other symptoms (burning when urinating, pain/itchiness in penis head, etc.) I only have this fishy smell. It's really embarrassing.
I know diet can change the smell of your penis, and the only thing I can think of is that I am an American and I just moved to the United Kingdom in early January. I almost always cook my own meals and I haven't really been eating anything that's different than what I eat at home.
Any help would greatly be appreciated. I have health insurance now but it's worldwide health insurance and I still need to look into what things are covered by it.
