Q. For several years I have had a bad odor around the penis area. I have white skin around the head of the penis. I have gone to doctors and I only get a cream to put around it. I would like to know what this is.
A. It is probably smegma, which is the normal secretion of the glands. If not cleaned every day it will give off a bad odor and also act as a medium for bacterial and fungal growth, leading to further bad smell.
