Itchy Penis: Was It the Lubricant or the Latex?
Sometimes a man suddenly finds himself with an itchy penis without any idea of what is causing it. Other times, he has a fairly good idea. For example, if he develops a really itchy penis after using a condom, and this happens consistently, it's reasonable to assume that this particular penis care issue is related to the protection he is using. But before he goes shopping for a new kind of condom to use, it's worth asking, "What is really causing this itchy penis? Is it the latex? Or is it the lubricant?"
A good question
It's a question well worth asking. Many condoms come pre-lubricated now, and many guys who use unlubricated latex barriers will add some lubricant to make things proceed more smoothly. Heck, some guys even add lubricant to a condom that already is pre-lubed. So if a guy has an allergic reaction after using the condom, it may be due to a latex allergy, or it may be due to the lubricant involved.
Some people seem incredulous that a guy could be allergic to latex or to lubricants. But the fact is that it's possible to develop an allergy to just about anything - and quite a few people do have reactions to latex and/or lubricant.
In terms of the penis, sometimes it manifests as itchiness, but it can also have visible symptoms as well - most often a reddening of the penis or the appearance of rashes or bumps. Sometimes it can cause swelling (not the kind associated with a normal erection) and tenderness. The exact allergic reaction will depend upon the individual.
So how does a person find out if the reaction is to the latex or the lubricant - especially if the condom is pre-lubricated and the specific lubricant used is not known?
One way is to take a condom (unused) and cut it in two. Take one half and soak it in soapy water for an hour or so, then rinse it thoroughly. Use paper towels to soak up excess water, then let it hang to dry. Then take the two halves - one of which has been washed and one of which has not - and place one on one arm and one on the other for 10 minutes. Remove, and wait to see if there are any signs of a reaction. If a reaction shows up on the one which is lubricated, it is most likely the lubricant. If both arms show a reaction, it is more likely to be the latex. (This method is not 100% accurate, but it gives a generally good idea of the cause.)
Alternatively, if the lubricant is self-applied, a test can simply be done applying the lubricant to the body and seeing if there is a reaction or not.
When the source is determined, a guy can then proceed to either (a) purchase non-latex condoms, (b) buy unlubricated condoms, or (c) change the lubricant he is currently using to one which is hopefully more suited to his skin.
A lubricant or latex allergy is only one potential cause of an itchy penis, of course. When dry skin is a cause, regular application of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is urged. Penis skin can dry out for many reasons, resulting in flaky skin which is prone to itching. Keeping the penis skin moisturized with agents like vitamin E and shea butter can stave off many an itchy situation. It also helps to use a crème that contains L-carnitine; serious itching can damage penis sensitivity, and the neuroprotective properties of L-carnitine can help maintain penis sensation at an appropriate level.
I am 17 year old girl & my menstrual are not regular & my mom has thyroid. please advice for both the problems.?
I have a lump in my right breast. It does not give me any trouble at all. Can you suggest some medication to dissolve it?
The tissue in the brain does not heal in the same way as the tissues in the rest of the body. A traumatic incident such as an accident involving the head, a fall or a gunshot can damage and destroy brain tissue. The extent of this damage depends on the force exerted on the head. Recovering from such accidents can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. No two people recover in the same way and hence it is difficult to set a universal timetable to this recovery. Some people make a full recovery and go back to living their normal lifestyle while others may need help throughout their lives.
- In the first few weeks after the injury, the tissues inside the brain are likely to be swollen and the patient may have internal bleeding. As a result, the person may be in a coma and unaware of the happening around him or her. In this state, the patient will not be responsive to external stimuli of any kind and will be unable to communicate with others.
- As the swelling subsides, the brain tissue functioning will improve. Though the patient’s eyes may still remain closed, he or she may begin to show signs of responsive behavior. With time, he or she may open their eyes and they may begin to experience irregular sleep-wake cycles. At the point, the patient may be said to be in a vegetative state.After some time, the person may also begin to respond to family members and display an ability to follow simple commands. This is known as a minimally conscious stage.
- Caregivers will need to be very patient with the person as at this stage as inconsistent behavior is very common. The person may appear nervous and restless and may often feel frustrated with his or her inability to do things they were able to before the accident. Some days could be very productive while on others, the person may not be able to pay attention to commands or complete actions that they could do on the previous day. The patient may also turn aggressive or overreact to stimuli.
- These first few stages of recovery usually happen within six months of the accident. Between six months and two years from the accident, the brain will slowly regain its functionality. Improvements slow down after two years but may still continue for many years. It is important to remember that the rate of recovery varies from person to person.
