Doctor

A:   Hello,
The symptom you are experiencing of skin flaking under the foreskin which is sticky and itchy as well is more likely to be either a fungal infection due to possible poor hygiene or smegma deposition which can dry up and can cause foul smelling discharge and itchiness. It is required that a swab culture may be done and any evidence of infection after isolation can be treated with antibiotics or antifungals as required. However daily cleaning with plain water and local dryness has to be promoted to promote local health.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
