This is the body's normal response to help separate the adherent inner foreskin from the coronal margin. Continue good hygiene. ...Read more

If not from personal overuse, I would go in and get checked out. ...Read more

I cannot imagine anyone putting food in their mouths that looked odd or unclean or infected. But, if you have no symptoms to report then I am not sure what you would want us to do for you. If you have no symptoms then there is nothing to discuss. ...Read more
