I have smegma everyday n have to wash everyday after 10 hrs or else my penis looks like I have std. What can I do to remove permanently. Is this norma?

I have smegma everyday n have to wash everyday after 10 hrs or else my penis looks like I have std. What can I do to remove permanently. Is this norma?

It's normal.: Smegma is a normal secretion (in both men & women) that keeps the mucosal surfaces lubricated and prevents drying. You can't remove it permanently, and you shouldn't want to. I can't imagine that anyone would actually think you have std - even people who have no idea what stds look like. Just keep cleansing as necessary, but don't overdo it, or the skin in that area will become dry and irritated. ...Read more

Yes: If each partner you engage with has had multiple partners, then it is like you are having sex with all their partners as well. If any of them have a sexually-transmitted disease, they are sharing it with you. Initially there are no symptoms for hiv/aids.
