White stuff under baby's penis skin


So I noticed it before and I thought it was just fuzz from his diapers sliding under the skin of his penis. I pulled it out. Well now he was in the bath and I noticed some and I actually pulled his skin back and there was a bunch under there. When I tried to get it out it was hard to get out. The piece I did get out was cottony looking, that's another reason why I thought it was fuzzy. I'm afraid because it was hard to pull out that it's his skin. He wouldn't still be healing from his circumcision would he??
Or is it really just fuzz?? It didn't seem like infection. Like I said it was fibrous like cotton.

My LO has this "fuzz" all the time, and he wasn't circumcised. I clean it ALL the time and sometimes it's really in there. I think it's just the diaper and pee residue.

My boys have never had anything like that. They haven't been circumsized. Also when they haven't been circ you shouldn't pull the skin back, it isn't meant to move until they get to about 5 and over. Obviously different if they have been circ!

So I have no advice sorry xxx

the only time i have come across anything like this is when i was using huggies i think, as hey have a sort of tissue type inside i thinkk it was just that, but was only on the very end of the penis and i didnt pull it back as i was told that it shouldnt be moved for cleaning. obviously as said above if circumcised then that wouldnt apply i guess. also some wipes are kind of tissue like too could it be that? if it is fibrous then i wouldnt think it would be an infection ( would expext red core and gooey) but if you arnt sure check with your hv or gp
