Penis Rash: Likely Causes And Effective Remedies

Penis Rash: Likely Causes and Effective Remedies

The human skin can be susceptible to problems like rashes. These can often be easily treated using topical medications. But if a rash appears on sensitive body parts such as the penis, there could be cause for concern. Failure to treat rashes and other problems in this delicate area can lead to more serious issues. To better care for this sensitive body part, it's important to be aware of some common causes for penis rash, as well as the recommended treatments.

- Razor Bumps ­- As suggested by the name, these red, itchy spots usually appear after shaving the hair around the penis. However, this is not as serious as it can be perceived, as razor bumps are simply the result of irritated skin and can be remedied easily. Experts suggest shaving after taking a shower, when the skin is soft, and applying shaving gel for moisturizing. Shaving towards the direction of hair growth is also recommended.

- Jock Itch - This is another common problem that most men have to deal with on a regular basis. Prevalent most especially among athletes, jock itch is caused by a fungus that thrives in warm, moist areas. It can cause a red, spreading, itchy rash that may affect the entire groin area, as well as the thighs. Topical medications such as those used to treat athlete's foot are generally effective for clearing up this condition.

- Contact Dermatitis - This condition is a type of allergic reaction to something in the environment. Most mild cases appear like the run-of-the-mill skin rash, but worse scenarios include fluid-filled bumps that may dry and peel. The most common triggers for contact dermatitis include soaps, laundry detergents, some types of condoms, and even plants and grasses. This condition can be treated by use of topical hydrocortisone ointments. A high-end moisturizer is also recommended to help sooth the itch and minimize drying and flaking.

- Balanitis - Balanitis refers to inflammation of the foreskin and/or glans and is most common among uncircumcised men. It is normally caused mainly by poor hygiene, which allows for the proliferation of bacteria, leading to swelling, soreness, and an itchy, red rash. The best remedy for balanitis is simply cleaning the infected area with a mild cleanser and avoiding the use of scented soaps that may contain irritant chemicals.

- Psoriasis - Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that essentially speeds up the life cycle of skin cells, causing a rapid build-up of dead skin cells on the skin's surface. Genital psoriasis, in particular, comes off as a deep red rash appearing shiny patches at the tip of the penis or on its shaft. Similar to jock itch, it is aggravated by the moisture that is being locked in. Unfortunately, there is no real cure for this condition, but there are methods to keep it under control, such as treatment with oral medications, UV light, and use of crèmes containing vitamins A and E.

Prevention is better than a cure

The penis is one of the most delicates part of a man's body, and it should be given utmost attention when it comes to treatment. Hygiene, of course, will always play a big role, as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Daily penis care may be extended beyond simply bathing the area to use of a penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil). A high-end product containing nutrients such as Vitamins A, B5, C, D3, and E, as well as rich moisturizers such as Shea butter, can be a key solution for maintaining hydration and soothing itchy, dry, reddened skin.

Small Penis? No Problem - An Extender May Be Your Solution

One of the benefits that comes with society's gradually more open acceptance of sex toys is the opportunity for men who feel uncomfortable about their penis size to use toys to supplement their endowment. When sex toys are part of a person's typical sex play, then he is able to utilize devices such as penis sleeves to add length and girth to the sexual experience. And as long as proper hygiene care is followed, there aren't major penis health concerns to worry about. With that in mind, men - especially those who feel they have a small penis - should learn some basic tips about penis sleeves.

Penis sleeve basics

Also known as penis extenders, penis sleeves are simply hollow, phallic-shaped devices into which a man inserts his own penis. Wearing a penis sleeve gives the illusion that one's penis size has increased - both in terms of length and girth. How much the size has increased depends upon the model selected. Some are designed to fit very snugly and may add only increase the impression of size by a small amount. Others are designed to create the illusion of a massively formed member.

Nowadays, most penis sleeves are made of silicone or some variation thereof. There are, however, sleeves made of other substances, such as metal. While many extenders closely resemble a realistic organ in shape, others may have exaggerated veins, bumps or even rubber spikes, which are intended to provide extra stimulation to the partner on the receiving end of the sleeve.

Tips

Men who are new to using penis sleeves should consider the following:

- A penis sleeve is not a condom. Indeed, some sleeves have slits, holes or openings in them which make them especially impractical as protection. Even those that are totally solid still do not prevent fluids from dripping out.

- Get erect before wearing one. In general, penis sleeves are meant to be placed upon the penis when it is erect, rather than soft.

- Straps are good. Some penis sleeves come with a strap at the base, which is intended to be worn around the balls. (Some may even have straps which can be tied around the waist.) This helps enormously in keeping the sleeve from slipping off. Those without straps tend to slip a bit if the fit is not tight enough, if the erection softens during sex, or if the sex is especially aggressive.

- Prep before putting it on. There are a couple of ways to prep before putting the sleeve on. One way is to soak the sleeve in warm water (if it is made of a pliable material) so that it stretches out a bit and then placing it on the erect penis. Or instead one can lubricate the penis and the inside of the sleeve before wearing it. In either case, it's good to then add lubrication to the outside of the sleeve for the comfort of one's partner.

- Always clean after use. The last thing a guy wants is for bacteria to grow on his sleeve, so he should clean it after every use with soap and water (but nothing harsher or more abrasive). And he should thoroughly dry it after washing.

Penis sleeves can be useful for a man, especially if he has concerns about his penis size. But all men can benefit from maintaining penis care by regular use of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Be sure to search for a crème that includes a wide range of vitamins, such as A, B5, C, D and E; topical application of these vitamins to the penis allows them to more directly spread their benefits. The best crèmes will also include L-carnitine. This amino acid has valuable neuroprotective properties which help prevent peripheral nerve damage and, subsequently, unwanted loss of penis sensation which can dampen one's pleasure during sex.

Traditional Surrogacy vs. Gestational Surrogacy

Traditional Surrogacy vs. Gestational Surrogacy
  • Medical Process: IVF (used in gestational surrogacy) and IUI (used in traditional surrogacy) are very different medical procedures. Generally, IUI is a simpler process that requires the surrogate to undergo fewer fertility treatments. In addition, intended mothers will not need to take fertility medications or undergo the egg retrieval process, as their eggs will not be used to create the embryo.
  • Legal Process: Traditional surrogacy laws tend to be more complicated than gestational surrogacy laws. Because the surrogate is the biological mother of the baby in traditional surrogacy, she has parental rights that will need to be legally terminated after the baby is born. In some states, this means that the non-biological parent of the child will need to complete a stepparent adoption to obtain parental rights. These additional legal procedures are not required in the gestational surrogacy process, as parentage is established before birth using a pre-birth order.
  • Wait Time: Most surrogacy professionals, including Southern Surrogacy, only handle gestational surrogacy cases. In addition, many surrogates prefer gestational surrogacy because it is less legally and emotionally complicated for them. This can make it difficult to find a willing traditional surrogate and agency to complete the process, increasing intended parents’ wait times in traditional surrogacy.
  • Costs: On average, the cost of gestational surrogacy tends to be higher than for traditional surrogacy. This is primarily due to differences in the medical process; IUI is less expensive than IVF and tends to involve fewer medical procedures and fertility treatments.
  • Risks: Traditional surrogacy poses a greater emotional and legal risk than gestational surrogacy. Because the surrogate is the biological mother of the child in a traditional surrogacy, she may be more likely to emotionally bond with the baby, making it more difficult to hand him or her over to the intended parents. And because she has parental rights to the baby, she could theoretically challenge the surrogacy arrangement in court, which could result in a lengthy and expensive legal battle for everyone involved.

It's Too Hot These Days

Hi,

Everyone says drink lot of water as it's too hot these days. It's true. But, lot of water does not mean excessive water as it also harms your body. 

Excessive water may increase your weight also. It may cause decrease in minerals in your body. Quality of water is also very important. Avoid clod water specially after coming from out side for few minutes. Avoid water after meal for half an hour. Use glucose or lime water to hidrate your self fully, it's better than simple water. Think differently, act wisely.

Traumatic Brain Injury - How Physiotherapy Can Help In Recovery?

When a sudden bump, blow, or jolt occurs to the brain, it results in a traumatic brain injury. According to the area involved in the traumatic brain injury, the patient may lose his consciousness, or he may lose the function of any part of the body. In the first few weeks following a traumatic brain injury, rapid recovery occurs but slows down over the following years. Hence, in order to gain rapid recovery, physiotherapy treatment should be started immediately.

Why physiotherapy is helpful in traumatic brain injury?

Along with the proper medication, physiotherapy assists in rapid recovery of the patient in the following ways:

  • It improves balance and co-ordination, thereby, decreasing the risk of fall.

  • It increases the ability to move in the bed, sit, stand, or to do activities for daily living.

  • It reduces muscle spasms, pain, and stiffness in cases of muscle involvement with traumatic brain injury.

  • It increases strength of the paralyzed (non-functioning, weakened muscles) limbs in cases of paralysis which occur after traumatic brain injury.

Continuous and persistent practice of physiotherapy ultimately results in independence and increased quality of life.

What therapies are included in physiotherapy for patients with traumatic brain injury?

The therapy needs to be followed on a daily basis under a proper guidance of a physiotherapist. It includes following methods:

  • Sensory stimulation: It includes application of specific stimuli, such as tactile (touch), proprioceptive, vestibular, auditory, visual, or olfactory stimuli. It is given in comatose patients. It acts by stimulating the brain and improving stimulus transmission, and it results in overall a rapid and better recovery.

  • Respiratory therapy: It is given to ICU patients. The main aim of this therapy is to promote ventilation, to improve oxygen saturation, and to improve thoracic mobility.

  • Therapies for prevention of contracture: Contractures mean that there is a loss of joint mobility. Hence, for the prevention of the contracture, active or passive movement of the joint or stretching exercises is generally advised.

  • Use of a serial cast: Serial casting is widely used to reduce stiff muscles and to improve the range of motion. They are changed in an interval of 4 to 7 days.

  • Mobilization: Mobilization therapies, such as bringing the patient into an upright seated position at the edge of the bed, outside the bed, or to a standing position are advised to improve the mobility of the patient.

  • Training for self-care: Training for improving the activities of self-care and the activities of daily living (ADL) is generally taught to the patients with sensory, motor, or cognitive dysfunction. 

  • Use of tools: Various tools, such as walking aids and supports are generally advised to improve and maintain the balance of the patient.

5 Things That Can Cause Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding!

Vaginal bleeding is a common phenomenon in women. Sometimes it is due to cyclical changes in the cycle, while other times, it may be indicative of something unnatural and perhaps severe.

Abnormal vaginal bleeding includes:

  1. Heavy periods: This is a very common phenomenon. Bleeding during periods cannot be measured with optimum accuracy but periods can be considered heavy if it lasts over 7 days, if you need double protection, or if you seem to pass too much clots. It is recommended to consult your doctor if it starts to affect your lifestyle and causes hindrance in your day to day activities. The cause of heavy bleeding during menses is often unclear, but it may be indicative of uterine fibroids or cysts.
  2. Post coital bleeding: Post coital bleeding happens when you bleed after sex. The most likely reason for this to happen is if there is inflammation in the neck of the cervical opening or it is sore. The common cause of this can probably be sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia.
  3. Inter menstraul bleeding: Bleeding between your periods is also a possibility. There can be several causes for this. It can be broadly indicative of uterine polyps or infections. Polyps are fleshy masses of cells which are basically an abnormal growth in the uterus or cervix.
  4. Break through bleed: These bleeds happen very suddenly and spontaneously in the middle of the cycles or close to the menstrual cycles. These can happen when you start contraceptive pills and usually settle down in a matter of few months.
  5. Post menopausal bleeding: Bleeding or spotting post menopause can be indicative of something more serious. The common causes can be uterine or cervical cancer. Often, it may also happen that the uterus starts to degrade, and small fibrous bleeding or spotting may be visible.

For example, if the woman has experienced recurring abortions, the homeopathy physician will prescribe the medicine depending on the general health condition of the woman and the number of abortions she has experienced. In some cases, the homeopathy physician may also consider the family history of the woman before prescribing the medicine. 

Medicines for those suffering from infertility:
