White Powder Discharge???

Ok, I hope this question doesn't result in a bunch of "what the????". Every so often (maybe once a month), my urethra will feel a bit irritated for a few days. During this period, I get from all I can describe is a very small accumulation of white powdery "flakes" at the end of my penis. Kinda looks like a few granules of powdered sugar. Are these actually infant kidney stones that came through? Anyway, I drink a gallon of water a day due to my physical activity. I also take about six different vitamins on a daily basis. Could it be a result of the vites? I've seached the web for what I have and can't find a thing.

I have noticed that too, mine aren't as granulated. It looks as if someone out some baby powder and mixed it with oil, it's mushy but still...I am wondering what it is...

What you describe sounds like a yeast infection (also called thrush). Symptoms of thrush can include itching/burning of the penis skin, burning at the tip of the penis on urination, and a white, lumpy or flaky discharge. Thrush can be treated fairly easily using over-the-counter anti-fungal creams, but you should see your doctor first for a positive diagnosis. A penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) can help to soothe irritated skin and may help to protect against common skin problems like fungal infections.
