It looks all Normal.. its that if i dont wash for a day, somethng like white patch develops and i have to clean it off. when it develops i get itchy feeling on my penis.

Yes, it could be a fungal infection, but it does not really come and go.
You have to get it examined by a dermatologist for the right diagnosis.
Also, it may be smegma, which is a cheesy secretion, that develops on uncircumcised penis.
In absence of a picture, these are the couple of possibilities. You should definitely get it examined before starting treatment.

Patient replied :

what medicine would you recommend. yes.. its chessy mild dry . smegma.

Expert:  Dr. Kalpana Pathak replied 2 Days.

You can apply clotrimazole cream over the area if it turns out to be an fungal infection. Add fluticasone if itching is there. For smegma, no treatment is needed. Daily cleaning of the area during shower is all you need
