Benzocaine Wipes Could Aid A Penis Function Issue: Premature Ejaculation

Benzocaine Wipes Could Aid A Penis Function Issue: Premature Ejaculation

Benzocaine Wipes Could Aid a Penis Function Issue: Premature Ejaculation

Penis function and penis health are often related, as a healthy penis is more likely to function in a more effective manner. However, sometimes penis function is less a matter of health and more a matter of other physiological or psychological factors. This is often the case with premature ejaculation, a condition of concern to many men. Interestingly enough, a May 2017 presentation at the American Urological Association indicated that there may be help for premature ejaculation from a surprising source: benzocaine wipes.

The study

The presentation was an interim report on an ongoing trial, entitled "P69-02 Double-Blind, Randomized Controlled Trial of Topical 4% Benzocaine Wipes for Management of Premature Ejaculation." To break that down a little, a double-blind trial means that some participants will be given a treatment (in this case benzocaine wipes) and others will be given a placebo (plain wipes without benzocaine), and that neither the participants nor the scientists performing the trial will know who is being given which. Randomized means that people are assigned the benzocaine wipes or the placebo at random, rather than people with certain characteristics getting one or the other.

According to a press release, the presentation indicated that 4% benzocaine wipes improved both the physical and psychological symptoms of premature ejaculation. Twenty-one men (heterosexual and each in a monogamous relationship) were studied. Each reported penis function issues related to premature ejaculation. In this instance, premature ejaculation is defined as lasting an average of two minutes or less after penetration of the vagina during sex. Fifteen of the men received the benzocaine wipes; six received the placebo wipes.

The data so far is promising. Men in the treatment group are reporting lasting longer than men in the placebo group, and they also are reporting better psychological results, stemming from less distress over their penis function issues.

A real issue

It is estimated that as many as 1 in 3 men who are 18 to 59 years old have experience with premature ejaculation issues. As a matter of fact, premature ejaculation is generally considered the most common male sexual dysfunction condition.

Although premature ejaculation can be defined as a man ejaculating at any time other than when he is ready, most of the time doctors consider ejaculation within 2-4 minutes of penetration to be premature. There can be a host of reasons for this.

For example, some men release early because of simple inexperience. They find that as they become more accustomed to penetrative sex that they are able, in general, to last longer than when they first started.

Other men may ejaculate prematurely because of pressure or concern over how they are doing; they worry so much that they don't perform the way they would like to. And in some cases, a man simply has very sensitive nerves in his penis, or is engaging in sex in a manner which overstimulates those nerves.

The current study is incomplete and too small-scale to provide definitive answers. However, they do provide hope that simply applying a benzocaine wipe to a penis prior to intercourse may be able to help some men achieve a more satisfying penis function.

Benzocaine wipes will not address all penis function issues, of course, which is one reason why maintaining penis health at a premium level is important. Regular application of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help maintain general penis health and the benefits that health bestows. The best crèmes contain L-arginine, an amino acid involved in nitric oxide production, which in turn helps keep penis blood vessels open and receptive to increased blood flow. Be sure the crème also includes vitamin A, which has antibacterial properties that eliminate unwanted bacteria, including many of those which result in unpleasantly strong and persistent penis odors.

Glucose Benefits, Sources and Side Effects in Hindi - ग्लूकोस के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

Glucose Benefits, Sources and Side Effects in Hindi - ग्लूकोस के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

हमारी सभी गतिविधियों के लिए ऊर्जा की आवश्यकता है. यहाँ तक कि हमें चलने और साँस लेने के लिए भी ऊर्जा की आवश्यकता होती है. हमारी दैनिक आवश्यकताओं के लिए आवश्यक ऊर्जा का स्रोत ग्लूकोज होता है. हमारे शरीर को ग्लूकोज हमारे आहार में खाए गए स्टार्च और शुगर से प्राप्त होता है. पाचन की प्रक्रिया के दौरान इंसुलिन की सहायता से स्टार्च और शुगर चीनी में टूट जाते हैं. तब ग्लूकोज कोशिकाओं की दीवार में प्रवेश करता है. अगर भोजन में अधिक मात्रा में शुगर होता है तो यह हमारे मांसपेशियों, लिवर और शरीर के अन्य भागों में जमा हो जाता है जो बाद में फैट के रूप में परिवर्तित हो जाता है.

ग्लूकोज के स्रोत
चूंकि ग्लूकोज वजन बढ़ाने और कम करने दोनों तरीकों से काम करता है इसलिए ग्लूकोज को अपने आहार में शामिल करने के लिए सावधानी बरतनी चाहिए. तो चलिए हम आपको बताते हैं कि किस तरह के ग्लूकोज आहार का आपको सेवन करना चाहिए. ताजे फल जैसे तरबूज, रास्पबेरी, अंगूर, ब्लूबेरी, नाशपाती और बेर आपको फाइबर, बहुत अधिक पानी और नेचुरल शुगर प्रदान करते हैं. अतः इन फाइबर युक्त फलों का सेवन करें. रिफाइंड अनाज के सेवन से बेहतर है कि आप साबूत अनाज का सेवन करें. ये आपको फाइबर और पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम और सेलेनियम प्रदान करते हैं. अनाज को रिफाइन करने से पोषक तत्व और फाइबर की मात्रा कम हो जाती है. वैसे तो सभी अनाज ग्लूकोज प्रदान करते हैं लेकिन साबुत अनाज अतिरिक्त लाभ प्रदान करते हैं. साबुत अनाज से बने आइटम जैसे ब्रेड आपको बाजार में मिल जाएंगी हैं.
फलियां प्रोटीन का समृद्ध स्रोत हैं और इनमें पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम, सेलेनियम और फोलेट जैसे आवश्यक जैसे पोषक तत्व भी शामिल होते हैं. सेम, दाल और मटर में फाइबर (घुलनशील और अघुलनशील) प्रोटीन होते हैं और इसमें किसी भी प्रकार का कोलेस्ट्रॉल नहीं होता है. ये अन्य खाद्य पदार्थों की तुलना में अधिक फायदेमंद होते हैं. फलियों में कोलेस्ट्रॉल और संतृप्त वसा नहीं होता है इसलिए हृदय रोगियों के लिए बहुत लाभदायक है. संतृप्त वसा का सेवन सीमित करने के लिए हमें कम वसा वाले डेयरी उत्पादों का उपयोग करना चाहिए. कम वसा वाले डेयरी उत्पाद हमें कम कैलोरी के साथ विटामिन, खनिज, प्रोटीन, और कैल्शियम देते हैं. पर यह सुनिश्चित करना आवश्यक है कि आप जिस भी डेयरी उत्पाद का सेवन करते हैं उसमें चीनी की मात्रा ज्यादा नहीं होनी चाहिए.

ग्लूकोज के फायदे
रेशेदार भोजन यानि फाइबर युक्त आहार कुछ बीमारियों जैसे टाइप 2 मधुमेह और मोटापे से लड़ने में हमारी मदद करते हैं. फाइबर अपच और कोलेस्ट्रॉल और हृदय रोगों को नियंत्रण में रखने में मदद करता है. फाइबर हम साबुत अनाज से प्राप्त कर सकते हैं. व्यायाम और उचित कैलोरी का सेवन कई बीमारियों जैसे टाइप 2 मधुमेह और हृदय संबंधी समस्याओं को रोकने में मदद करता है. कम वसा, कम कोलेस्ट्रॉल वाले कार्बोहाइड्रेट्स हृदय संबंधी बीमारियों का खतरा कम कर सकते हैं.
हम में से कई लोग वजन बढ़ने के लिए ग्लूकोज को दोषी मानते हैं. लेकिन उचित तरीके से ग्लूकोज का सेवन आपके वजन को कम करने या नियंत्रित करने में मदद करता है. यदि आप सही तरह से अपने आहार में फल, सब्जियों और रेशेदार खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन करते हैं तो यह आपका वजन कम करने में मदद करते हैं. ग्लूकोज में समृद्ध आहार वजन घटाने और मांसपेशियों को टोन करने में फायदेमंद है.

ग्लूकोज की अधिक मात्रा के नुकसान
अधिक मात्रा में ग्लूकोज के सेवन से शरीर में कैलोरी की मात्रा बढ़ सकती है जिसके कारण मोटापा हो सकता है. पर्याप्त मात्रा में ग्लूकोज क सेवन नहीं करने से कुपोषण की समस्या हो सकती है. अधिक मात्रा में चीनी का सेवन हमारे स्वस्थ के लिए अच्छा नहीं होता है. यह हमरे वजन को बढ़ाने के साथ-साथ खराब पोषण प्रदान करते है और इसके सेवन से दातों की क्षय भी हो सकती है. इसलिए कैंडी, शुगर ड्रिंक, मिठाई के सेवन से बचें. ये आपको कैलोरी के सिवा कोई पोषण प्रदान नहीं करते हैं.

When Penis Rash Comes From Pityriasis Lichenoides

When Penis Rash Comes From Pityriasis Lichenoides

When Penis Rash Comes From Pityriasis Lichenoides

Just as a man may be worried about how an exposed skin rash can make his face or arms look (and about what message such a rash may send to a potential sexual partner), so is he concerned when a penis rash rears its ugly head. Often the penis rash is due to penis health issues, sometimes including the ghastly presence of an STI. But in other cases the rash is simply a dermatological issue, a skin rash that just happens to appear on the penis. That can be the case with pityriasis lichenoides, a skin eruption that is little-known.

About pityriasis lichenoides

As is often the case, the name pityriasis lichenoides makes it sound more formidable and dangerous than it actually is. "Pityriasis" is from a Greek word meaning "bran," and it refers to skin that is flaky or scaly. "Lichenoides" refers to the physical appearance of the rash.

Typically, this rash first presents as bright red oval spots, sometimes flat, sometimes raised like a bump. They can vary in size from 2 mm to 10 mm in diameter. But the spots change, turning into blisters with fluid inside, and then into crusty ulcers. The spots often appear in clusters as an identifiable rash, but sometimes there can be "loners" which occupy an area of skin fairly far away from other spots.

A trio

There are three forms of pityriasis lichenoides, all of which are rare. One form is considered serious. The forms are listed below, referred to in the acronym form by which they are frequently known.

- PLEVA is the one most likely to cause a penis rash, as it tends to occur on the penis in about 10% of cases (usually while also appearing elsewhere on the body). The penis rash may cause itching or a slight burning situation, but often it has no noticeable effects. Without treatment, the rash can last for 6 weeks to about 18 months, usually coming and going several times during the lengthier time frames. PLEVA sometimes leaves behind scarring or some skin discoloration.

- PLC is somewhat more common than PLEVA, and less likely to occur as a penis rash (though still possible). It is milder than PLEVA, with the spots less noticeable and rarely any subsequent scarring.

- FUMHD is the rarest form and the one which is considered quite serious. The spots tend to appear as red or black ulcers, and there are usually other symptoms, including a high fever, severe stomach pain, diarrhea, pains in the joints, interference with breathing and variations in mental state. A doctor should be seen right away.

Treatment

PLEVA and PLC are self-resolving, but because it can take months, many people prefer to have a doctor help the process along. Antibiotics shorten the length of time the disease is present, and steroids can help to make the rash go away. FUMHD requires hospitalization for treatment.

Although a penis rash can be off-putting, pityriasis lichenoides is not known to be contagious.

Pityriasis lichenoides is fortunately a rare source of a penis rash. The itching and discomfort associated with many a penis rash can often be alleviated if a man regularly uses a superior penis health (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Even when a rash is not present, an itchy penis is often due to skin that is too dry. Therefore, take care when selecting a crème to be sure it contains both a high-end emollient (such as natural Shea butter) and a powerful hydrator (such as vitamin E). In addition, the presence of vitamin C in the crème is advised. Vitamin C is a prime component of collagen, a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity.

Solving the Itchy Penis: Is It Jock Itch or Herpes?

Solving the Itchy Penis: Is It Jock Itch or Herpes?

Solving the Itchy Penis: Is It Jock Itch or Herpes?

When a man has an itch that just won't go away, it's natural to start to worry about what might be causing it. That's especially true when it's an itchy penis he's dealing with. To make matters worse, a man who is sexually active might have cause to believe he has contracted herpes, even if he practiced the best penis care possible during his encounter.

The good news is that for most guys, that itchy penis will turn out to simply be a case of bad jock itch. But for others, the dreaded news of a herpes infection is in their future. How can a guy get insight into which diagnosis he will get for that itchy penis?

The symptoms of jock itch

Many guys wind up with jock itch at some point in their lives, and it's certainly no fun. The biggest symptom is an unrelenting, maddening itch, which can actually morph into pain rather quickly. The pain will be centered on the inner thighs, buttocks and groin. It's especially prominent in the darker areas of the body, such as the bend between the thigh and the torso. That's because it's caused by a tiny fungal spore that thrives in moisture and darkness. That's also why men who tend to work out a lot and sweat plenty down there are more likely to develop jock itch. To make matters worse, a guy will often develop an inflamed, red rash along the affected areas.

The symptoms of herpes

Herpes also presents with terrible itching, which is why men will often worry that their itchy penis is caused by this sexually transmitted disease. In addition, a guy might notice that he feels as though he is coming down with the flu, complete with muscle aches, headache, fever and even swollen lymph nodes. Shortly after this, a guy will start to see tiny blisters appear. They might look like a red rash at first, which can make a man think it's just jock itch. But as the situation progresses, that redness will turn into blisters, very warm to the touch, that are filled with fluid. When the blisters pop, it creates a crusty sore that can be quite painful.

Why they might seem similar?

In the beginning of each situation, a man might see redness and some spots that create an overall rash. But in jock itch, the redness might be interspersed with tiny blisters, especially near the edges of the red areas. These tiny blisters don't pop, rarely excrete fluid and go away quickly. With herpes, on the other hand, the blisters pop and turn into sores, and they linger for two weeks or so before they dissipate. In addition, remember that a herpes outbreak often comes along with flu-like symptoms; jock itch does not.

Appropriate treatments

The best treatments for jock itch and herpes are quite different. For jock itch, a doctor will prescribe an anti-fungal cream to be slathered on the area for a few days. This usually works quite well. A guy will also need to step up his penis care game and pay more attention to careful showers, especially after workouts or other sweaty events.

Herpes typically requires a course of medication during breakouts. Some people will choose to take medications on a daily basis to prevent breakouts in the first place. Again, good penis care is essential, especially the use of a condom during sexual activity. This not only protects a guy's junk, but protects his partners from contracting herpes from him.

For any condition that might cause an itchy penis, a man should reach for a specially formulated penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The use of this crème can help ensure good daily penis care. A crème that contains alpha lipoic acid to fight the free radicals that can cause skin damage is always a good idea. And since treatments for an itchy penis often result in dry penis skin, a crème that contains luxurious Shea butter and a dose of healthy vitamin E is recommended.

Influenza (Flu) and Pregnancy - What To Expect?

Influenza (Flu) and Pregnancy - What To Expect?

When you are pregnant, the need to watch your health is significantly higher. It is not just a question of your health, but of the developing baby also. This makes it extremely significant as different bacteria and viruses could affect the baby’s development and even lead to complications with pregnancy and childbirth.

The flu, short for influenza, is a mild viral infection that affects the upper airways, including the nose, throat, and sinuses. The usual symptoms include nose blockage, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, cough, heavy headed feeling. It is caused by a virus and therefore there is no remedy for it. It has to run its course which usually takes about 7 days, and the body will fight off the infection on its own.

Symptomatic treatment including paracetamol and adequate hydration can help live through the flu. Though it is common in any weather, the winters increase the risk.

Another increased risk factor is the reduced immune levels in a pregnant woman, making them more prone to catching the flu. This could lead to complications like pneumonia which might require hospitalisation and prolonged treatment with antibiotics. The baby could also be at risk of miscarriage, low birth weight, and premature birth.

Symptoms: If you do catch the flu during your pregnancy, you will notice the following symptoms a headache, runny nose, fatigue, sore throat, shortness of breath, coughing, sudden chills or fever, diarrhoea or vomiting, and body aches, and loss of appetite.

Management: If you suspect that you could have the flu, contact the doctor immediately. Taking safe antiviral medications can help reduce the duration of the illness and reduce pain and suffering. In addition, getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of fluids can help recovery. Acetaminophen can help manage the fever, while Robitussin and guaifenesin can help manage the cough.

Prevention: If you are planning for pregnancy or are already pregnant, it makes great sense to get vaccinated for the flu. This can help prevent a flu attack and sail through pregnancy smoothly. In addition to protecting the mother, the flu vaccine also transmits the virus to the newborn, which gets immunity for up to 6 months of life. The vaccine also has a beneficial effect on the newborn.

It is safe to get the flu vaccine during pregnancy, though taking it in the early months is advisable. It is also safe during breastfeeding with no harmful effects documented. In addition, some healthy habits like regularly washing hands, eating healthy, getting adequate sleep, and keeping a safe distance from people with flu can help prevent flu attack.

While prevention is the best solution, if contracted, the flu can be managed well by seeking immediate medical attention.
