Keep calm – most likely there is nothing to worry about. The only thing that needs to be fixed is your hygiene habits.
So, What is Dick Cheese?
Well, let’s start from the basics. The scientific term for your newly discovered stuff around your penis is smegma.
Smegma is a combination of skin oils, dead skin cells and moisture. It tends to build up underneath the foreskin. However, Smegma is not a guys-only condition. Females can experience it as well.
While this dick cheese itself is completely harmless and doesn’t require any special treatment, building it up can result in serious problems. We’ll cover them later in the article.
The dick cheese problem is more common in uncircumcised men, however the circumcised ones can experience it as well. Even if you lost the turtleneck, there is a chance that you still have a bit of the skin left.

Many teenagers / young adults don’t form good hygiene habits and that can cause smegma as well as other harmless yet repulsive conditions, such as bad breath, sweat smell and so on.
As you can see, not washing yourself properly on a daily basis is the main (and only) reason why you get dick cheese / smegma to form around your penis.

By that I mean that ,your private parts require separate washing during each shower. Especially if you are uncircumcised.

Such bacteria can cause various skin swellings and irritation, including balanitis. Balanitis can cause your penis swelling which results in the forehead skin not being able to retract. Not retracting your penis skin and washing your penis properly can cause even more problems.
Another, less serious yet very uncomfortable issue that comes with not dealing with your dick cheese is the smell.
Just like your armpits start smelling if you don’t wash them enough, your penis will as well. That’s not something you want, right?
As you can see, such issues will make your daily life uncomfortable and it could interfere with your sex life as well.

The condition is not dangerous, yet you should address it straight away.
