How to keep your penis clean

Gently wash your penis with warm water and soap.

If you have a foreskin, pull it back gently and wash underneath otherwise a cheesy-looking substance called smegma (natural lubricant that keeps the penis moist) may begin to gather.

If smegma builds up in the foreskin, it can start to smell, stop you easily pulling your foreskin back, and become a breeding ground for bacteria.

This can cause redness and swelling of the head of your penis, called balanitis.

Circumcised men have to be just as careful about cleaning their penis. Gently washing the penis with warm water once a day is sufficient.

Don’t forget to clean the base of the penis and the testicles, where sweat and hair can combine to produce a strong smell, just as unpleasant as in your armpits.
