Spending time in the hot tub can be an excellent way to relax and let sore muscles get the heat and jet-provided massaging action they crave. But what if a guy comes out of that hot tub with a regrettably itchy penis? Unfortunately, this can sometimes be the case, and the condition can go even beyond penis health, often creating an itchy rash all over the body.
Hot tub fun
Hot tubs have become a big part of the American social scene over the last few decades. Although hot tubs are often used solely for "family friendly" recreational activity, they also have a reputation for being an especially rewarding place to have sex. The stimulation provided by the pulsating jets of water, combined with the heat, can make sex in the hot tub irresistible to some.
Unfortunately, unless properly and regularly cleaned, a hot tub can also become a breeding ground for bacteria. The hot water is very attractive to bacteria, and unless a proper amount of chlorine is added at appropriate times, bacteria can grow and get all over the skin of people in the tub. And ironically, the rash tends to be more prominent on and around the penis, as wearing a swimsuit traps the bacteria against the skin more directly for a longer period of time. (Hot tubbing in the nude, however, does not totally protect against the rash; it merely means it may be less severe.)
Hot tub folliculitis
One of the more common causes of itchy penis (and of a rash in other parts of the body) is something called folliculitis (often called simply rash). This is an especially unattractive prickling rash; although it can be contracted from bacteria, it is more common in tubs made of wood.
Hot tub folliculitis usually appears a few hours after using the tub, but there can be a delayed reaction, resulting in its appearance a few days after exposure to the bacteria. This rash tends to develop around hair follicles, as the bacteria nestles in at the root of the follicle and starts infecting the area.
This rash strongly resembles chicken pox in its early days, although as it progresses it comes to resemble a field of pimples. Like chicken pox, folliculitis is extremely itchy; in some cases, people report it can be painful, often producing a burning or stinging feeling when aggravated.
The good news is that the condition usually resolves itself within a week or two; the bad news is that it is uncomfortable and unattractive while it persists. That itchy penis is not likely to get much pleasure while the rash is present. A rash that lasts beyond two weeks may need antibiotic treatment.
In some cases, also be a breeding ground for yeast. While yeast infections are more common in women than in men, they do occur on the penis - and can produce a mighty itch.
In order to reduce the chance of a related itchy penis, men need to be sure that the tub in question has been properly cleaned and disinfected. It also helps to limit the amount of time in the tub; longer exposure increases the risk of infection. Finally, showering after using the tub can help displace bacteria.
An itchy penis, from a hot tub or from other sources, needs to be moisturized. Daily use of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) with a combination of moisturizers is required. Look for one with both Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (a natural hydrator) for good results that keep the skin supple and smooth. It's a plus if the crème also contains alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that fights oxidative stress, leaving penis skin stronger and less prone to infection.
My son, age 1.6 yrs. Is suffering from fever 100 to 101 degrees, cold,and severe cough from last three days. I have taken advice from three doctors (child specialists) last three days, they have prescribed para syrup, anti cough syrup, amoxy antibiotic e.t.c but fever and severe cough still persists. Now from last one day loose motions also started. He strictly avoids breast feeding. All the tests of blood, urine,x ray were performed and according to the docs. All the reports are normal and no signs of pneumonia were observed to which I was afraid of, but even after giving para syrup and all the medication there is no relive in fever and cough. Docs says that it is viral fever and will take 3 to 7 days to heal, Last night also fever was 102 degrees and severe cough were observed. Docs says that WIDAL test will be performed after 7 days of fever. PLEASE PLEASE SUGGESTS WHAT TO DO.
I some times press my fingers against my chest or when I sleep on my side I feel pain towards inside edges of my left lung. I have been smoking for 15 yrs.
There are mainly three kinds of burns. The degree of burns is determined by the extent of damage that the burn causes. First degree burns are minor while third degree ones are extremely severe. Variety of factors could lead to a burn. They may be chemical, electrical, fire and even sun induced. Boiling or scalding liquids might result in burns as well. The burn type isn’t necessarily determined by what causes it. Scalding hot water might cause all the three types of burns; based on the duration of the skin being in contact with the water and how hot the water is.
Electrical and chemical burns need immediate tending to by a doctor as it might affect the internal body without it being apparent as the damage to the skin is not much. There are also fourth-degree burns. This type of burn includes all of the symptoms of a third-degree burn and also extends beyond the skin into tendons and bones.
- First-degree burns: These result in the least skin damage and are also known as “superficial burns” as they only affect the skin’s outermost layer. Redness, pain, minor swelling and inflammation are all the symptoms of a first degree burn. As a first degree burn heals, dry skin and peeling takes place. As the skin peels, the symptoms and signs disappear as the burn only manifests on the top most skin layer. It usually takes a week or little more for a first degree burn to heal without any scarring. If the burnt area affects over three inches of skin, or is on the face, then a doctor should be consulted. Home care generally suffices for a first degree burn. Healing time accelerates with rapid treatment of the burn.
- Second-degree burns: They are serious as the extent of damage is deeper than the topmost layer of the skin. The skin becomes extremely sore with the formation of red blisters. The blisters might pop open and as time passes, the wound may develop a scab. Proper bandaging is required to reduce chances of an infection. Home remedies should be avoided. The burns usually heal within three weeks.
- Third-degree burns: They are the most severe. They extend through each layer of the skin. They might not cause any pain due to the severity of burn as the nerves might get damaged.
