Response from Men's Sexual Health:

If you notice a little clear fluid coming out of your penis pee hole while you are straining to have a poo, this is probably just the result of some pressure on your prostate gland which sits next to the back passage (rectum).





If you find stuff under your foreskin it is likely to be something different, the most common thing being “smegma”. This is a mixture of old dead skin cells and natural body secretions which can build up there. Although pretty harmless it is a good idea to gently pull back the foreskin and clean it and the head of your penis on a daily basis. Ordinary water is OK – if it seems to be irritated or some of the smegma is stuck to your skin, use warm salty water. If you use soap remember to rinse off thoroughly because a build-up of soap can irritate the delicate skin under your foreskin.





If you find the skin over the head of your penis or under the foreskin is red and tender, you could try an anti-fungal cream like “Canesten” – but if you aren’t sure or it doesn’t seem to work, ask your doctor to take a look.
