3 Things You Need To Know About Your Penis!

We have to maintain our bodies regularly no matter who we are to ensure that we are healthy and in good shape. When our skin will becomes dry it will feel irritated and we will use oils or creams to seek relief on our face, hands and other parts of the body. Just like any part of the body the skin on the penis will often become dry as well.  As men we tend to wear body hugging underwear and nothing causes discomfort to men as much as walking around with a chaffed penis.   Did you know that you can get dermatitis on the penis?

Often men who frequently masturbate without lubrication will literally stroke the skin off the penis causing ‘burns’.  Or having sex without using a personal lubrication can also cause chaffing and burns.  Left untreated these minor causes of discomfort may cause the skin to deteriorate so much that you will need medical attention.  When the skin to your penis is raw you are also more likely to catch other ailments, viruses and diseases.  It is important to keep your penis clean, and although most men do not, use antibacterial moisturizers and creams to keep it in tip top health.

Some men suffer from sore penis syndrome also know as irritable penis syndrome and as a result of not looking after your penis this syndrome can cause erectile dysfunction, difficulty urinating, painful ejaculation, penis bruising, bleeding and swelling, penis lumps and sores, penis rashes and itching, and urethral discharge.  In some cases, left untreated it can be life-threatening and Medical treatment should be sought as soon as possible to  also reduces the risk of permanent skin damage, impairment of penis and sexual function, and possible complications that can result in major organ damage. Treatments include abstaining from any sexual activity, oral and prescription medicines, creams, injections and other forms of therapies, and sometimes even surgery

Medical Treatment
Irritable Penis Syndrome

Three of the main Reasons you may Suffer From Irritable Penis Syndrome Are –

  1. Aggravation or Allergy: *There are many reasons you may get an allergic reaction on the skin or your penis.  One of the most common is the use of latex condoms as many men (and women) have an allergy to latex and many of the latex condoms include spermicides and other agents that may also cause an allergic effect. *Many men wash their penises with soap but do not rinse the soap off properly, the result often causes  swelling, itching, and rash to the penis. *Using a poor personal lubricant during sex often will cause an allergy, especially those that are flavoured or have certain attributes like cooling and heating as all these have chemicals or other additives that your penis will not like.  *Where possible anything that touches your penis should be natural and chemical free and it is good to place on balms, oils and creams that will help to develop the natural healing characteristics of penis.  By doing this it reduces the risk of rash, burn or chaffing.   * Wherever possible you should not use products that contain benzocaine, Benadryl cream, lidociaine even though they are often found in mens sex creams and sprays.  *Incorrect use of sex toys especially penis pumps used incorrectly can cause hickeys and worse to the shaft and head of the penis. * Clean your penis and foreskin daily ensuring that after you dry it thoroughly with a clean towel.
  2. Lack of Lubrication:  * When you have sexual intercourse with a partner or when masturbating alone one should always use a personal lubricant.   When having sex if the area is not adequately lubricated the skins will rub against each other and create friction which can lead to chaffing, burns and dry skin. * If you are lucky enough to be getting a blow job if it is incorrectly performed by using the teeth or not being lubricated enough or having the mouth adequately open it may cause a rash or small cuts to the penis.  The mouth houses more bacteria than any other part of the body and an open wound on a penis and inside a mouth is a recipe for disaster.  Your penis may get a rash, infection, swelling, inflammation, itchiness even scabs,
  3. Dermatitis: Your skin may get to be red and flaky because of atopic dermatitis.   Dermatitis is hard if not impossible to get rid of and once you have had it, it will tend to flare up from time to time.  There are many reasons that you will get dermatitis but a couple are the skin being in a moist environment regularly, not being hygienic and also being in contact with someone else suffering from it.. The most well-known side effects are tingling that tends to get worse of an evening, red patches, dry flaky skin and sometimes even seeping wounds. There is no cure for dermatitis, however you can control it and the side effects by keeping the affected area clean, making sure it is dry and using natural oils or prescribed creams and balms.
