When to Worry About Dry Penis Skin?

When to Worry About Dry Penis Skin?

When to Worry About Dry Penis Skin?

Every man is familiar with dry penis skin(DPS); sometimes, no matter how good the penis care a man practices, dry skin will happen. However, that proper penis care means that DPS should be quite rare indeed. But what does a man do when DPS becomes more than a fleeting problem? What happens when that dryness continues and becomes a discomfort?

Sometimes DPS means something more. Here's how to deal with DPS and the related penis problems that might occur.

What causes dry penis skin(DPS)?

The reasons for DPS are wide and varied, but they usually have the common factor of being easily treated. Some common causes include overuse, especially when masturbating without enough lubrication to make the going easy. On the other hand, using the wrong type of lube for the action can lead to problems with dryness as well, so it's best if a man takes his time to find the lube that works for him, and then applies it often during sexual activity.

Other causes include using a soap-based cleanser, which dries out the skin, as well as reaching for new products that might lead to an allergic reaction. Laundry detergents, spray deodorants, and even treatments for jock itch can eventually lead to very dry skin, thanks to these reactions. The use of condoms can lead to DPS as well, especially if a man's body doesn't agree with the spermicide inside most condoms.

When dry skin becomes a penis problem

But most of those cases can be solved by paying attention to moisturizing every day, including the use of a high-quality penis health crème. But what about situations that don't seem to respond to moisturizers, no matter how much a man uses?

Some dry skin issues require medical attention. This is especially true in the case of eczema or psoriasis; both skin conditions can cause terribly dry skin that is accompanied by pain, inflammation, itching and other penis problems. In addition, some sexually transmitted infections also produce very dry skin, and treatments for those must be obtained through a visit to the physician.

When a man is unsure of what is causing his excessively DPS, he should plan to go to the doctor if his moisturizing efforts don't result in smooth, supple skin.

How to treat dry penis skin?

After a doctor has cleared a man from any underlying medical conditions that could cause DPS, he must then figure out how to eradicate the problem. This means a great deal of moisturizing is in his future! A man should take care to use a cleanser that is specially formulated for penis skin, as well as examine his other household items, such as detergents for laundry. It might take some time to figure out what is causing the DPS.

He should make a point of using a good moisturizing crème after every shower. Those showers should be warm, but not hot - hot water leaches moisture from the skin. He should pat dry when he comes out of the shower and then apply the cream so as to "lock in" the moisture.

In addition, he should not be shy about using a great penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Two vital ingredients in the best crèmes are Shea butter, a high-end emollient, and vitamin E, a natural hydrator. When these are combined they can create a moisture lock of their own, holding in the skin's natural oils and helping combat excessive dryness. They also have the added bonus of healing the itch that often results from the worst of DPS episodes.

I have 3 years old baby boy. I have stopped breast feeding but still some times milk droplets appears on my nipples. Why?

I have 3 years old baby boy. I have stopped breast feeding but still some times milk droplets appears on my nipples. ...
Many moms find that their breasts continue to leak long after they wean. They may be able to express drops of fluid for months or even years after their baby weans, especially during a shower. The fluid that leaks out after weaning tends to look more like colostrum (thin, sticky, and yellowish) than white or creamy like mature milk. Since it took your breasts nine months of pregnancy to go through the physical changes that prepared them to make breast milk, it’s not surprising that they don’t go back to their pre-pregnancy state. Immediately after your baby weans. Leaking after weaning doesn’t become a concern unless the breasts produce a lot of milk for long periods of time. If the breasts remain swollen, hard or tender, or a large amount of milk continues to leak for months after weaning, then there may be a medical problem that should be evaluated by a doctor knowledgeable about lactation. Advise =Breast pads Breast pads can really be a savior. I prefer the cotton ones that are washable and reusable because they are more environmentally friendly, but there are disposable ones as well. There are also silicon pads that apply pressure to stop leaking. Just pop any of these in your bra and the leaks are at least contained. Some of these pads can show through an unpadded bra, making it look like you have really pronounced areolas, so padded bras are a good idea. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation without pads, but fear a leak is eminent: Just use a menstrual pad or panty liner, cut down to fit, and stick it to the inside of your bra. Works like a charm. 2.Sage contains a form of estrogen, which will help your body dry up the breast milk. Sage tea can be found at any health food store. You can also make it at home if you have the sage spice. Simply rub 1 tsp. Of sage into a cup of hot water and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Add some honey or milk to the tea, as sage is very bitter. Drink one cup every six hours; this should help reduce your milk quickly. It is best to use sage tea to give your body comfort while you wait for the milk to dry. Avoid warm touch. While a cool touch can bring relief, a warm touch can trigger your body to produce breast milk. A warm or hot shower can stimulate milk production, so unless you are looking for a way to release a little milk, keep your breast away from warm water. Drink water. It is important to keep yourself hydrated. One myth that has serious negative impact is that if you reduce your water intake, this will reduce your milk supply. However, if you do not drink water, you will become dehydrated. This will increase the risk of developing not only a breast infection, but a urinary tract infection as well.

Yes there is a chance as there is a chance of delayed ovulation, so you should give her i-pill as soon as possible to avoid un-necessary complications. After i-pill menses may come irregular for some time.

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and its Causes

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and its Causes

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a potentially life-threatening condition that causes a steep drop in blood pressure, resulting in deprivation of oxygen to the organs, which in severe cases leads to death. This disease has been associated with menstruating women who use superabsorbent tampons. It was first recognized in the 1970s and 80s when women using tampons of certain brands were affected by this syndrome and those brands were immediately taken off the market. This disease primarily affects tampon wearers and harmful effects of cervical caps, diaphragms, and menstrual sponges have surfaced.

New mothers are susceptible to TSS as well as those who are recovering from a surgery, are wounded or are using prosthetics. It is important to know about its symptoms so that you can identify the disease and seek professional help at the earliest.

Symptoms

Warning signs of TSS include:
-Seizure
-Headaches
-Muscle aches
-Diarrhea
-High fever
-Nausea

Causes
An overgrowth of bacteria called staphylococcus aureus (staph) causes this disease. It can be found primarily in female bodies. This is one of the many staph bacteria that lead to skin infections in burn victims and patients recovering from surgical wounds. Group a streptococcus (strep) bacteria is another cause of this syndrome.
