Thrush and others: If you are uncircumcised, a yeast infection (thrush) could do this, but so could be "nonspecific" banalitis, bacterial overgrowth, or other causes. Best to be professionally evaluated. Or you could try simple hygiene first -- retract foreskin and wash with soap and water twice a day -- then get care if it doesn't clear up in a few days.
