The good news is that the cause of the funk may be related to an easily treatable health issue, rather than a permanent problem, and with the right attention to penis care, most men can banish foul odors for good. Smegma - This refers to the accumulation of unpleasant-smelling material, made up of shed skin cells, body oils, and other substances, that can be found underneath the foreskin. This pasty substance is a haven for bacteria, which tend to thrive and reproduce in warm, moist areas like this, perpetuating the foul odor.
But if you feel like the scent has changed or grown stronger, it may be a sign of an underlying condition. For example, men who are uncircumcised may develop skin cell buildup underneath their foreskin. This is often the result of poor hygiene and can lead to infection.
Smegma is a natural lubricant that is found around the head of the penis and under the foreskin. When this builds up, it can provide the perfect host for bacteria. It can also start to smell and cause soreness, particularly when it comes to moving the foreskin back and forth.
A man's moist groin area, with its sweat and piss residue and deep crevices, can take on a musty aroma redolent of testosterone-fueled manpower. For many, that smell may be quite pleasant, appealing even note: pheromones. But sometimes a dick goes from smelling like musky man to hot summer garbage—rotten, like fish sauce meets dirty diaper.
Semen contains numerous substances that influence its smell, and your individual diet, hygiene, and sex life all play a part. Certain foods can give it a sweet scent and taste! But eating or drinking acidic substances can make your semen smell foul.

Just think of all the sweat that sits down there, building and building throughout the day. Batra says. They'll cleanse all those nooks and crannies.
I have always been a person who paid a close attention to my overall body hygiene especially my gential area. I would always wash my penis foreskin repeatedly and carefully because I am not circumcised and I do whatever it takes not to have smelly balls. So I was taken by surprise recently when I started to smell a fishy odor coming from my penis.
