Hi. I have a smelly and sticky penis, no discharge. No STI. I'm very clean, so concerned
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I can shower and as soon as I come out - it's sticky and will start smelling. If I pull my foreskin back. It won't get sticky.

Ok thanks I will ignore the call

A swab of the sticky material (bacterial and yeast) are advised.

You may do the following, meanwhile;

1) Clean it with Betadine solution.

2) Apply anti-yeast skin cream for 20 days.

3) Mix 1% hydrocortisone cream with the above for the first 10 days.

4) Take oral probiotics for one month.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
