The Dangers of Cortisone Cream for an Itchy Penis

MD - General Medicine

The Dangers of Cortisone Cream for an Itchy Penis

Many people reach for CC(cortisone cream) as their number-one remedy against itchy skin. Though CC might work very well for some parts of the body, such as the arms or legs, it is advised that men use the utmost caution when using CC on the penis. When nothing else works for an itchy penis, even the best changes in hygiene and good penis care, a man might need CC - but he also needs to know what penis problems it might potentially cause down the road.

What men need to know about cortisone creams

Cortisone creams contain very low amounts of steroids. These creams contain so little, in fact, that they are sold over the counter and most people never experience any negative side effects from using them. CC work very well for those who have skin allergies, such as a bout with poison ivy or something in their environment that causes an itchy rash. It also works very well for those who have certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema. Keep in mind that these creams stop the allergic reaction, thus stopping the itching; they don't actually treat any underlying condition.

When it comes to more delicate skin, such as that on the penis, it pays to use cortisone creams with extreme caution. That's because many men report changes in their penis skin after using cortisone creams, including thinning of the skin, redness, and a waxy appearance. Some irritation might also occur. Those who have darker penis skin might find that the use of CC also makes the skin lighter, or leaves it with discolored splotches. Using cortisone cream for the long-term might also result in stretch marks on the penis, thanks to the thinning of the skin.

How to use cortisone creams properly

A man should never just reach for a CC at the pharmacy and start using it. It's important to remember how to use it, and what steps to take before resorting to the cream.

1) Figure out the underlying cause. A man who has a seriously itchy penis needs to treat the reason for the problem, rather than just masking it by getting rid of the itch. There might be issues with allergies, parasites, or even a sexually transmitted disease. A visit to the doctor or dermatologist can help a guy figure out what's going on.

2) Use it sparingly. When applying the cream, don't slather it on. Use only the smallest amount possible to get results. This should be no more than what can be squeezed out onto a fingertip.

3) Use it for a short period of time. Cortisone creams should be used for temporary relief, which might mean only a few days. This should give a man enough time to take medications or otherwise follow the doctor's instructions on how to alleviate the underlying cause of the itch.

4) Avoid skin irritations. If the skin of the penis is broken in any way, such as irritated to the point of leaving tiny cuts or abrasions, do not put cortisone cream on it. Not only does this hurt like crazy, it can also allow the cream to infiltrate the skin, which could lead to further problems. And don't scratch! Scratching the penis can get the cortisone in too deep, leading to those aforementioned penis problems.

5) Don't cover the area. When using cortisone cream, try to leave the penis skin bare. This allows the cream to do its work while the skin 'breathes' a bit, mitigating some of the potential damage that can come from cortisone cream use.

One of the best remedies for an itchy penis is great hydration. That's something a man can attain with a top-notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin), which includes vitamin E and Shea butter. This one-two punch of hydration can keep the penis skin smooth, supple and itch-free.

Robotic Cancer Surgery - How It Can Benefit You?

Robotic Cancer Surgery - How It Can Benefit You?

With the dawn of modern technology, the sight of robots performing a surgery under the control of an expert surgeon is fast turning into a reality. Robotic surgery is one of the latest and greatest advancements in surgical cancer care. It is, mostly, sought for its unmatched levels of precision and control.

The da Vinci Robot, which is the only medically approved robotic surgical system, employs the use of 3D vision for the surgeon, and extremely precise agile robotic tools. This surgical method is one of the greatest inventions in modern surgery that aims to provide greater control to the surgeon at all times. For patients, this means quicker recovery times, minimal scarring, lower complications and higher satisfaction.

Robotic cancer surgery can be performed for most of the cancer surgeries. However, the maximum benefit is for the following conditions:

  1. Prostate cancer
  2. Bladder cancer
  3. Gynaecologic cancer
  4. Thyroid tumors
  5. Lung cancer
  6. Gastrointestinal cancer

Benefits of robotic cancer surgery:

  1. Less scarring: The minimally invasive approach of robotic surgery contributes to minimal scarring. Instead of having a deeper incision of up to 5 or 6” on the skin, patients can have a series of small incisions or one relatively smaller incision, based on the nature of the surgery.
  2. Shorter hospitalization: With minimal incisions, postoperative care is speeded and pain is lessened. This surgery will not require the patients to stay for a prolonged period of time in the hospital. At the most, they tend to spend up to two nights in the hospital, if the situation demands so. As a result of this, within no time, you can get back to your normal life.
  3. Limited drugs: With traditional surgery, typically a patient is administered a lot of painkillers to alleviate pain. However, with robotic surgeries, thanks to decreased postoperative pain after surgery, the patient will not need excessive painkillers to help them deal with pain.
  4. No blood loss: During traditional open surgery, patients tend to typically lose between 600cc to 1000cc of blood, depending on the area of treatment. As a result, postoperative transfusion of blood becomes a necessity. However, during robotic surgery, blood loss is usually 200cc or less and so there is no need for transfusions.
  5. Accuracy and precision: The 3D vision and other advanced tools employed by robotic surgery allow for better surgical accuracy, which is greatly needed in cancer surgeries. Especially in the case of prostate cancer, if tumour is in a critical location, then a robotic surgery is handy to carry out the procedure, without damaging the important nerves. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Breast Enhancement - 3 Crucial Points You Must Know About It!

Breast augmentation is a surgical designed to enhance as well as improve the symmetry and fullness of the breasts through implants (gel-like fluid in a flexible sac); or to bring back breast volume lost as a result of pregnancy, aging or weight loss. Before opting for such a procedure, there are certain points that you absolutely must consider, which are: 

1. Selection of Implant - silicone or saline implants: When it comes to implants, you have two options available - saline or silicone. Providing a uniform shape and firmness, saline implants come filled with sterile salt water. In contrast, silicone breast implants contain elastic gel, giving them the look of natural breasts. In terms of popularity & patient satisfaction , silicon implant score over saline implants. Apart from USA , silicon breast implant are most commonly used all over the world. 

2. Getting the right size: choosing the right size & shape of implants for breast augmentation is very important. Mammography should be done before putting breast implants.The size of implant is decided by the Plastic Surgeon after proper assessment of the breast diameter & profile of implant is decided by the shape & projection of existing breasts. In general, size selection is made based on your natural breast size. Whether you opt for a saline implant or a silicone one, implants come in varied sizes ranging from 120-180 cc. When you choose a size for yourself, you'll have to keep in mind your body frame as well as appearance you wish to have post surgery

3. Incision options: depending on the results you expect, you'll also need to consider which incision (a surgical cut made in your skin during operation) option you should select before undergoing surgery. Incisions can range anywhere from 3-5 CM , with their lengths increasing as the implants expand in size. Generally crease incision (incision made in the crease area below the breast fold) is used. 

Apart from crease incision, some of the other incision options that a surgeon may employ for breast augmentation could be: 

  • Armpit incision (incision made in the underarm area for breast implantation through the armpit) 
  • Nipple incision (incision made on the areola, which is the circular area of pigmented skin surrounding a nipple).

These incisions are smaller and don't leave behind easily visible scar tissue. Fat grafting of breasts is another alternative for smaller increase in breast volume or a complementary procedure to the breast implant surgery. If you're considering breast augmentation surgery, be sure to check with your Plastic Surgeon about these factors and which options are best suited to you, before proceeding

Dialysis: When Do Kidneys Need it?

Dialysis: When Do Kidneys Need it?

Kidneys are a pair of organs that are located on either side of the spine, each about a size of a fist. The kidneys help in purifying blood by removing toxins, waste materials and excess fluids from the human body. Disorders and dysfunctions of the kidney can lead to severe and often fatal consequences. When the kidneys stop functioning as they are supposed to, dialysis is performed to resume normal functioning in the body. 

Dialysis is a type of treatment, which filters and purifies the blood with the aid of a machine. It is an artificial way of purifying blood. There are two types of dialysis, namely hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis, the most common form of dialysis, which involves using a manmade kidney called a hemodialyzer, which removes toxins and waste materials from blood. 

Peritoneal Dialysis, on the other hand, is a type of treatment which involves implanting a catheter in the abdomen. During the procedure, a sterile fluid called dialysate flows into the abdomen that absorbs all the waste material, which is consequently drained out of the body. 

You may need a dialysis if: 

  1. Your kidneys are dysfunctional 
  2. When waste materials and toxins start to accumulate in the body and cause unwanted effects on your health 
  3. If the GFR (a measure of kidney function) level falls to 10-12 cc/minute 
  4. In an event where the kidneys aren't able to work properly leading to accumulation of toxins, irregular amounts of chemicals in the body and other dysfunctions 

Starting dialysis is a big decision and proper preparation with an AV fistula created well in time is important. When kidney failure is due to chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and nephritis then dialysis will be needed life long or till a kidney transplant is performed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.

Do You Know These 5 Things About Breast Augmentation

Do You Know These 5 Things About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is known to be popular among women and is frequently done and shows quite satisfying results.

Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, enlarging your breasts and making them more proportional with the rest of your body. Breast augmentation can also be used to correct differences in the size of your breasts or sagging breasts, which can occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  1. Getting the right size: choosing the right size for breast augmentation is very important. It's wrong to believe that bigger implants are not always good. The size of implant should be decided after proper assessment of the breasts. In general, size selection is made based on your natural breast size. Whether you opt for a saline implant or a silicone one, implants come in varied sizes ranging from 120 cc to 500 cc. When you choose a size for yourself, you'll have to keep in mind your body frame as well as appearance you wish to have post surgery.
  2. Incision options: depending on the results you expect, you'll also need to consider which incision (a surgical cut made in your skin before the operation) option you should select before undergoing surgery. Incisions can range anywhere from 1-4 inches, with their lengths increasing as the implants expand in size. There are also certain incisions, such as the belly button incisions that are really small and don't leave behind visible scar tissue.Apart from belly button incision, some of the other incision options that a surgeon may employ for breast augmentation could be:- armpit incision (incision made in the underarm area for breast implantation through the armpit)- nipple incision (incision made on the areola, which is the circular area of pigmented skin surrounding a nipple)- crease incision (incision made in the crease area below the breast for implantation).
  3. Picking silicone or saline implants: when it comes to implants, you have two options available - saline or silicone. Providing a uniform shape and firmness, saline implants come filled with sterile salt water. In contrast, silicone breast implants contain elastic gel, giving them the look of natural breasts. In terms of elasticity, saline implants can be adjusted more easily as you can inject or remove liquid from the implant. In contrast, silicone implants cannot be adjusted as they are already filled with the gel.
  4. Following the surgery, it is important to have restricted light activities, with no lifting or heavy duties for 7-10 days. Most patients may drive again and return to work within 7 days after the surgery. Heavy activities and sport should not be undertaken for 3-4 weeks following the surgery.
  5. Breast augmentation surgery requires a general anaesthetic, with the operation taking 1-2 hours, and is usually performed as a day-stay or overnight-stay procedure.Implants are placed either behind the breast tissue or under the pectoralis muscle on the chest wall. Breast implants placed underneath the muscle have a more natural shape, a lower chance of capsular contracture (hardening) of the implant, and it is easier for mammography.
