What is Smegma?

Smegma is the natural lubricant found under the foreskin of males that enables the foreskin to slide back and forward across the head of the penis. It may appear as a white discharge similar to milk curds if present in excess, particularly in uncircumcised boys and men who have a narrow opening to the foreskin.

Smegma Removal:

It is not necessary to clean smegma away, and excessive cleaning under the foreskin may cause soreness and dryness due to a lack of smegma.
