Skin Irritation on the Penis: Causes, Treatments and Risk Factors

Full scale or just a patch, skin irritation on the penis can be a cause for concern and often results in a loss of focus and an extra helping of discomfort. It's also not something a man tends to want to show off while "entertaining." Here's the good news - most causes of an irritated penis can be easily remedied and are nothing to worry about. Here are five common reasons for skin irritation on the penis and how to fix the lil' fella right up.

1) Genital Area Infections - Nobody in the world likes to cuddle more than fungus. Give it a nice, warm, moist place to curl up, like the folds of the genital skin, and it will nestle right in. To keep jock itch and his other fungi friends out of the area, keep the genital area clean and dry. Post-invasion see a doctor for an anti-fungal cream to clear up the infection. To prevent future fungal shack-ups, shower regularly, clean thoroughly and keep the area dry and airy.

2) Too Much of a Good Thing - Too much sex or self-gratification may seem harmless, but it can result in red, cracking, irritated, penile skin. Unless a man likes that pins-and-needles feeling on his irritated penis, stop all activity immediately until the skin is back to normal. To get it back to soft and supple, use cool compresses to soothe the irritation and a penis health crème to repair and renew the skin. When all is good, be sure to practice moderation in all things and to use a good, water-based lubricant for especially energetic sensual shenanigans.

3) Latex Condoms - Something like 15% of all Americans is allergic to latex so a skin irritation on the penis due to latex is not at all uncommon. Now, the fix isn't to stop using condoms (no dice, buddy), but it is to look for alternative condoms like polyurethane or polyisoprene which protect against STIs and pregnancy without the latex. To help the irritation, follow the same rules as in #2.

4) Balanitis - Balanitis is a skin inflammation which impacts the penis head and foreskin and is experienced more often by uncircumcised men. It's caused by a build-up of smegma. Smegma is a stinky concoction of dead skin cells, body oils, and bacteria that marinate into an especially odorific off-white paste which harkens to bacteria to infect the delicate penile skin. The best way to treat and prevent balanitis is regular and thorough cleaning of the penis daily with a gentle cleanser. If the issue is out of control (such as the foreskin will not retract), a physician will prescribe antibiotics to clear up the infection.

5) Sexual Transmitted Infections (STIs) - Cut and dry, an irritated penis can be a symptom of an STI. Several STIs manifest as a skin irritation on the penis and can be accompanied by a rash, blisters and peeling skin. STIs associated with an irritated penis include genital herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital warts, and syphilis. Men who believe they may have contracted an STI should see their doctor or clinic immediately for testing and avoid any sexual contact until the results of the test are known. Once diagnosed, a doctor will prescribe the course of treatment.

Avert an Irritated Penis with These Tips

Most skin irritations on the penis can be prevented with good genital hygiene habits and practicing safe sex. Grooming should include cleansing the penis regularly and thoroughly with a mild cleanser and soft cloth. Keep the groin area dry and air it out frequently - many men prefer to sleep in the buff to give the area plenty of oxygen.

Habitually moisturizing the penis is also a critical step in penis health. Use a specially created penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) for a clean, renewed, and supple penis. These cremes are nutrient-rich and contain vitamins like A, C, D, and E which have properties especially advantageous for penile health and healing, which is ideal for keeping an irritated penis at bay. The crème's base should be a natural moisturizer, like Shea butter, which leaves the penile skin completely hydrated and smooth.

When a Penis Rash Is Something to Worry About!

When a Penis Rash Is Something to Worry About

At some point in his life, every man deals with a penis rash. It might be a recurring event for some, especially during the summer when jock itch becomes more difficult to avoid. It might happen right after introducing something new into the daily routine, like something as simple as trying out a new laundry detergent. In other words, a penis rash is so common that men can actually become accustomed to seeing it.

Unfortunately, that means that sometimes a man can become so familiar with penis rash that they don't even think about consulting a physician or looking deeper into the issue. Though most penile problems are quite easily remedied, especially with excellent penis care on a regular basis, some rare issues might be cause for concern. Here's how to know when a penis rash is something to worry about.

7 Causes Of Jock Itch And Its Treatment!

Jock itch can be defined as a fungal infection affecting the skin, especially around the inner thighs, genitals, buttocks or the groin region. Also called ‘tinea cruris’, this condition triggers irritation that results from the ring-shaped red rashes that primarily affect the warm and moist regions of one’s body. This condition majorly affects people who sweat excessively, such as athletes or even people who are over-weight. Although it is often bothersome and uncomfortable, jock itch doesn’t bring about severe complications for the affected individual. Jock itch can easily be cured by keeping the groin region dry and applying topical anti-fungal medications.

Symptoms:

The main symptoms of Jym itch include itchy and painful rashes in the buttock, inner thigh or the groin region. The rash is usually tan, red or brown in color, slightly scaly and often formed at the edges.

Causes:

  1. Putting on damp, wet or unlaundered clothing, such as athletic supporter and very tight underwear or wearing them frequently.

  2. Sharing towels that were used by a person suffering from the same condition.

  3. Taking showers irregularly, especially after excessive sweating or exercising.

  4. Living in hot and humid conditions.

  5. Obesity.

  6. Wearing tight clothing.

  7. Immune system disorders.

Treatment:

  1. Anti-fungal creams or lotions can help treat ringworm of the groin. Few examples are Miconazole, Econazole, Clotrimazole and Ketoconazole. These medications should be applied twice a day for about two to four weeks.

  2. In case the eruptions start to ooze fluids or pus, antibiotics may be administered by the doctor.

General Measures:

Measures to prevent recurrence of tinea cruris include weight reduction (if obese), wearing less occlusive clothing, drying thoroughly after bathing, using topical antifungal powders, laundering contaminated clothing, and treating concomitant fungal infection of nail of feet, if present.

Tinea Cruris - Causes, Symptoms And Homeopathic Treatment!

Tinea Cruris is also called as jock itch which is a type of fungal infection that affects a person's groin area who are mostly adult.

This disorder is caused by a fungus named as dermatophytes and it results into a circle around the affected area which resembles a ring. Severe irritation and itchiness can be experienced due to this and the affected area turns red. Sometimes the ring looks like a worm and therefore, many people term this infection as “ringworm”. Even though it is easily curable, the fungus may spread and affect other parts of the body as well or result into serious damage to the skin surface as well. Hence, proper medications and treatment should be opted for-

Causes- The causes of Tinea Cruris are very common and it can also contaminate if brought in contact with others.

Here are some of the causes of this disorder -

● The fungus grows on the skin which is moist and warm therefore affecting the people who tend to sweat a lot and also overweight.

● Tight clothing and hot weather can also lead to the development of this fungus in different areas of the body which does not stay cool.

● The fungus can be spread to other people if it is brought in contact by any medium such as towels, floors, toilet seats etc.

If a person does not takes a bath and clean him or herself for a long time, then the fungus tends to grow and spread on their skin.

Symptoms- The symptoms of Tinea Cruris are easily identifiable and therefore if you observe any of them, immediately visit a doctor and ask for good medication.

● Inflammation in the groin region, anal area, and also around the upper thigh.

● Slightly raised patch of skin might be observed.

● Dry or scaly blisters may develop in the above-mentioned areas which may also burst at certain times and may be painful.

● A very abnormally dark or light skin tone may develop in the affected areas.

● Skin redness or itchiness is very common.

So here are the potential symptoms that you must keep an eye for. The symptoms should not be neglected because the fungus may have a negative impact on your health and also around the surrounding skin areas.

Treatment With Homeopathy-

Jock itch can be easily treated with homeopathic medicines and other ingredients. Homeopathy creams and ointments made of different natural anti-bacterial ingredients are the best for this kind of disorders. The cream will eliminate the germs and fungus growth around the region which was causing such a problem. However, other homeopathy medicines can also be used to treat the affected area and give relief to the symptoms of Tinea Cruris.

Jock Itch-Sensible Prevention Tips

Jock Itch: Sensible Prevention Tips

Although scratching the crotch is perfectly acceptable when knocking back a few brews in a man cave with the guys, it's not something that wins a fellow a lot of points when giving a business presentation or when out on a date. Yet there are times when the urge to itch is so strong that there's little a guy can do but give a surreptitious little scratch and hope no one notices. This is especially true when a dude has come down with a bad case of dreaded jock itch and feels like all he wants to do is put his hands down his pants and scratch away for a couple of hours. Since jock itch is such a nuisance, it's wise to practice prevention strategies for avoiding it.

The following may help.

- Don't share towels with a bud. Whether at the gym or at home, it's important to use a clean towel when drying off from the shower. Jock itch is a fungus spread through direct contact - meaning it's not airborne. A man has to come into physical contact with it. Using a towel that another guy has used means one person might pass the fungus to the other. This is especially important at the gym. Often, guys hang their towels on a row of hooks while they shower - and it's easy to forget whose towel is whose, so pay attention when hanging up that towel.

- Don't share underwear either. Seriously, going commando is usually a better option than borrowing some briefs from a bro. It's just too personal. Besides, he may claim that he's washed his underwear in hot soapy water - but a lot of guys fudge the truth when it comes to how much laundry they do. Wearing boxers that have been clinging to a crotch with jock itch is a disaster waiting to happen.

- Use a towel in the sauna. Hanging out naked in the sauna or steam room after a good workout really helps relax the muscles. But other guys have been sitting there naked too, and if any of them had jock itch... well, need we say more? Bringing a towel to spread out and sit on is excellent prevention.

- Wear a condom. Jock itch often starts from sleeping with a woman who has a yeast infection. Wearing a condom is one of the most important prevention strategies in such cases.

- Beware of athlete's foot. The fungus that causes jock itch is the same as that behind athlete's foot - so if a guy has athlete's foot, he needs to avoid touching his feet and then touching his penis.

- Give the penis an airing. Jock itch thrives in warm, moist conditions, so it benefits a guy to let his penis have fresh air regularly. Sleeping in the buff is an easy way to do this, or just walking around the house naked for an hour or two on a regular basis.

- Stay loose. Tight fitting clothing may accentuate a guy's physique, but if the pants and underwear are too tight, it makes more heat and moisture, which encourages jock itch. Go for boxers rather than briefs and trousers that don't cling directly to the crotch.

- Shower and dry. Shower frequently to keep the skin clean - and dry it thoroughly.

Taking prevention tips to heart can decrease the odds of getting jock itch, but sometimes the yeasty beast comes for a visit anyway. The penis will better meet this danger if it's in its best health; daily use of a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help maintain that health. For best results, make sure the crème contains a wide range of vitamins, including the all-important A, B5, C, D and E. In addition, the crème needs to feature L-carnitine, an amino acid with valuable neuroprotective properties that help ensure continued sensitivity in the penis.

Common Penis Problems That Fitness Buffs Should Be Aware Of!

Common Penis Problems That Fitness Buffs Should Be Aware Of

There's no doubt that regular exercise is good for the mind and body. But a regular gym goer has a host of penis problems that they're more susceptible to than those sitting on the couch. Between less than sanitary conditions, communal bathrooms and lots of sweat, your typical gym is ripe with bacteria that can leave your penis vulnerable to discomfort. But with a little knowledge, many of the most common penis problems found at the gym are easily diagnosable and treatable.

Here are the three most common penis problems found at the gym and how you can solve them:

1) Yeast Infection - Most commonly thought of as a female health problem, men can also find themselves with a yeast infection, especially if they're frequenting the gym. This type of infection is caused by a fungus called candida. While candida is usually present on the body and perfectly healthy, an overgrowth of it can be the cause of a penile yeast infection. Symptoms of a male yeast infection typically includes itching and a burning sensation accompanied by a red rash or white, shiny patches on the penis. In some cases, a thick white substance may be present.

Candida thrives in dark, warm and moist conditions, making it essential to change out of sweaty gym clothes as soon as your exercise is over. Spending the day in used gym clothes can make one very susceptive to this common problem. Curing a male yeast infection will require an over the counter antifungal crème.

2) "Jock Itch" - Tinea cruris, the fungus behind "jock itch," is another common ailment for the regular exerciser. Like candida, tinea cruris flourishes in dark, warm and moist areas, making the groin and inner thighs especially vulnerable after a vigorous workout. Because tinea cruris is a form of ringworm, it has a distinct mark, making it easy to identify and diagnose. A man dealing with "jock itch" will suffer from a red, scaly, circular rash with raised edges that often itches and burns.

Like yeast infections, "jock itch" can be easily avoided by swapping soiled gym clothes with fresh, clean options after a workout. It's also essential not to share damp towels or be in close contact with others that may be experiencing tinea cruris. Over the counter antifungal crèmes will clear up this very common infection.

3) Chafing - In and out of the gym, penis chafing is a common problem that affects many men. However, gym conditions can make active men particular vulnerable to this uncomfortable condition. Damp skin is more likely to cause friction, making excessive sweat a top culprit for a chafed penis. Unlike yeast infections or jock itch, penis chafing is marked by red, flakey skin and, while uncomfortable, won't cause the acute itching and burning common with infections.

To combat chafing, opt for looser, breathable clothing. Synthetic materials tend to be best as cotton can trap moisture. In the case of chafing, a delicate moisturizer can also be applied to relieve uncomfortable symptoms. A cool compress with a clean, dampened towel can also quickly relieve irritation caused by chafing.

Relieving symptoms

While waiting for an antifungal crème to work, those afflicted with a yeast infection or jock itch can quickly relieve their symptoms. Delicately wash the infected area with warm water and a mild soap. If the infection is particularly severe, just water will work as soap may irritate the area even more. After washing, gently pat the area dry and apply a high-quality penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) designed to soothe and protect the sensitive penis area. While penis problems at the gym are common, they don't have to get in the way of an active lifestyle.

Foot Fetish? Beware Of Jock Itch

Foot Fetish? Beware Of Jock Itch

Foot Fetish? Beware of Jock Itch

Lots of men are sole men - dudes with a particular "thing" for feet. As a matter of fact, some experts believe that a foot fetish is the most common fetish, especially among men. But does a foot fetish come with any potential penis health concerns? Actually, depending upon how the foot fetish is played out in practice, there could be an increased risk of jock itch among men with this proclivity.

The foot fetish

A 2006 research study found that fetishes that involve body parts (or objects associated with body parts, such as shoes) are the most common, and that feet and/or toes are the most popular body parts for sexual fetishizing.

When most people think of a foot fetish, they tend to picture a man who worships the foot. He may touch, stroke, sniff, or kiss a foot which he finds attractive. As he does this, he becomes more and more aroused. Often he masturbates his penis while touching or kissing the foot in question, achieving a more intense orgasm as a result of the contact with the foot.

But there are other ways in which the foot fetish may be acted out. For example, sometimes the fetish focuses on the shoe which has contained the foot, and he may fondle or kiss the shoe as he masturbates. Or rather than masturbating himself as he kisses a foot, he may instead ask the owner of the foot to rub his erect penis with the foot, or may position himself to rub his penis against a stationary foot.

The jock itch concern

It's in this latter type of scenario - one in which there is direct physical contact between the foot and the penis itself - that the potential concern about jock itch more likely arises.

To understand why, it's necessary to know a little about jock itch. Also called tinea cruris, jock itch is a fungal infection that can affect the penis, scrotum, buttocks and crotch. It presents as a red rash and, as its nickname suggests, can be extremely itchy.

As a fungal infection, jock itch thrives in hot, moist places - such as the crotch. And it's very contagious (which is one reason a guy shouldn't share underwear with another guy).

But here's the thing: the fungus that causes jock itch is basically the same one that causes athlete's foot. And so if a man is rubbing a foot all over his penis, or is rubbing his penis all over a foot, and that foot has a fungus - it may easily get spread to the penis and cause a case of jock itch. (There is also a similar risk if a man places a sock, stocking or shoe on his penis; if the wearer of that item has athlete's foot, the fungus may have spread to the item and may then spread to the penis in question.)

Similarly, a man with jock itch can pass his fungus off to a partner's foot by physical contact between the two.

Treatment

Men with a foot fetish should ideally ask the owner of any feet they fetishize if they have any foot conditions. Barring that, a man should inspect the foot for signs of a fungal infection, and avoid penile contact if signs are present.

But, though an annoyance, jock itch does respond well to treatments. Keeping the area dry and free from irritation and using any number of jock itch treatments (most of which are over-the-counter) generally brings relief in a few days. A doctor may also be consulted.

Whether from a foot fetish or not, jock itch can dry the skin, so using a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is advised. Find a crème with both she abutter and vitamin E, two well-regarded moisturizers that can help treat dry penis skin. It also pays to find a crème that contains vitamin B5. Also called pantothenic acid, B5 provides a boost to cell metabolism and helps maintain healthy penile tissue.
