Smegma is the thick, white, cheesy substance that collects under the foreskin of the penis. It's more common in uncircumcised men.

Tiny glands called sebaceous glands in the penis and vagina release smegma to lubricate these areas. It's made from a combination of fatty oils, shed skin cells, and moisture like sweat. In men, smegma collects between the foreskin and the head of the penis. It doesn’t usually appear before puberty. During puberty, your body starts going through physical changes to reach sexual maturity and produces more oils.


  • Look like crumbly cheese.
  • Smell foul, like sour milk.
  • Cause irritation or swelling.
  • Cause discoloration (red, pink, purple or gray).
  • difficult to pull back


The best way to treat smegma is to regularly wash your genitals and the surrounding areas until it goes away If you have foreskin, gently pull your foreskin as far back as you can toward your body. Use a clean washcloth or your hands to wash the skin under your foreskin with soap and warm, clean water. If you’re circumcised, clean your penis with soap and water.
