A 32-year-old member asked:

Does the skin attached to the inside head of the penis peel off during puberty?

Hygiene: We all slough a cell layer of surface skin cells every day. On the scalp it is dandruff, on the head of penis it is smegma. Uncircumcised boys, not used to retracting their foreskins and wiping away smegma/dead skin cells may think that the penis is pealing. It is normal skin desquamation (shedding).

Hydroquinone cream: Try hydroquinone cream. Rub in a small amount 2 times each day. You can find a 2% hydroquinone cream over the counter in most pharmacies. Natural liquorice extract is another treatment that works but is usually not as effective.

Get checked: It may be a simple yeast or fungus infection. However, you can get some other diseases, including cancer that can present like that. Also, you need to make sure you don't have an std. Sometimes you can get irritation from condoms or spermicide also. See your primary care doc, or a dermatologist.

I masturbated with shampoo and now the skin of my penis head is peeling, what to do?

Nothing special: I would avoid any masturbation until this resolves. It could be from friction or possibly a dermatitis for something in the shampoo. Its better to use a simple lubricant as opposed to a soap type product. THe head should get better in a few days
