Manhood Health Primer

There’s no doubt about it: Member ulcers can be scary. Even a man who maintains the best male organ care, including careful daily cleansing and using a barrier protection during all sensual activity, might one day look down to see this unexpected sore on his male organ. So what is a member ulcer and how does a man get it? And more importantly, how does a guy get rid of it?

What’s a member ulcer?

Member ulcers are open sores on the male organ. It might be alone, just one strange sore in the midst of perfectly healthy skin. Or it might be one of several that show up on the male organ. Sometimes they are even accompanied by rashes, with the more significant part of the rash leading to the member ulcer.

When it comes to pain, member ulcers vary widely. Some are entirely pain-free; a man could touch it and not even wince. But others are very painful, even when they are not being touched by anything, even soft underwear. They might be accompanied by swelling and itching.

What causes member ulcers?

In most cases, a member ulcer must be brought to a doctor’s attention, as it can be caused by many things that a man doesn’t want to think about. These include:

1.Social diseases. Chlaymidia, herpes, and syphilis can lead to serious member ulcers. Another infection, known as chancroid, is rare in the United States but more common in developing countries, can cause member ulcers.

2.Mononucleosis. Yes, this is often called �mono� or �the kissing disease� because it spreads easily through saliva. Mono is usually accompanied by fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, fever and sore throat. In some cases it can also cause member ulcers.

3.Granuloma inguinale. This is a bacterial disease that is more common in tropical climates. If the ulcers from this do not get prompt treatment, the damage to manhood health can be permanent.

4.Yeast infections. The member ulcers from a long-running yeast infection will usually occur near the tip of the male organ, but they can also happen anywhere along the surrounding area.

5.Scabies. These microscopic skin mites can wreak havoc on a man’s body, and they tend to really like the midsection. Enough of them, given enough time, can create member ulcers, usually from openings in the skin as a result of itching.

6.Skin wounds. The simplest explanation, any sort of abrasion or wound on the male organ skin � perhaps from a rigorous round of sensual activity the night before � can lead to an ulcer.

7.Male organ cancer. While male organ cancer is rather rare, it’s important to get a member ulcer checked out to ensure that’s not what’s happening.

The only one on this list that might be treated without a doctor’s visit is the skin wound. That’s because a man will likely know exactly what happened � for instance, he will look down and see the ulcer, then realize it must have happened last night, when he was a little too enthusiastic but didn’t use enough creme. Otherwise, any skin ulcer without a perfectly clear cause must be checked out.

Ease The Sweat To Alleviate Manhood Itching

When a man is out and about � which is probably most of his usual day, whether weekdays or weekends � he is likely wearing at least two layers of clothing: underwear and outerwear. Depending upon the season or the event, he might be wearing more than that. So it’s understandable that a great deal of sweat can accumulate throughout the day in the area around his member. Usually, good member care takes care of that problem with a simple cleansing. But for some guys, that sweat turns into an itchy mess. Manhood itching as a result of sweat is one of the main reasons most guys feel the need to scratch throughout the day!

Therefore, it stands to reason that a guy can cut down significantly on manhood itching by simply cutting down on the sweat he has to deal with down there. But how can he do that?

How to stop the sweat

It’s important to remember that a guy doesn’t want to stop the sweat completely, as it’s important for the body to function properly. Sweat glands work to cool the body down, as well as to remove some waste products from it. In fact, not sweating is usually a sign of a serious medical problem that requires immediate attention.

However, most men have the opposite problem, in that they are drenched with sweat in certain areas, especially underneath several layers of clothing. The sweat glands on and around the member can release plenty of sweat throughout the day. Here’s how to prevent it from building up:

�Choose underwear wisely. Tight underwear forms a compression of the area, which might feel good at first, but can lead to a serious sweat situation by the end of the day. Look for underwear that are loose and breathable, such as boxer briefs. Better yet, choose underwear with a wicking fabric that will pull the sweat away from the skin.

�Air things out. One of the best ways to avoid an itchy male organ is to let everything swing free. When in the privacy of home, take off all the clothes and walk around bare. Sleeping in the buff can also provide lots of time for air to circulate around the equipment. This will help ensure a man wakes up dry and fresh in the morning.

�Shave things down there. The hair around the member area traps in heat and moisture, as well as sweat that trickles down through it. As the sweat accumulates, it starts to smell rather rank. But besides that, it leads to serious itching. Shaving the area can help the wicking underwear do its work and get rid of the sweat before it has a chance to settle in and dry on the skin.

�Change clothes often. A guy might be tempted to simply wear his workout clothes home from the gym, or might choose to go back to work right after his lunchtime game of pickup basketball. This is almost always a bad idea, as that sweat will then have a chance to sit around, gain some odor and of course, make his itchy manhood even more of a problem. Changing clothes after any sort of sweaty activity is a good idea.

After a man steps out of a shower feeling clean and fresh, he can hold onto that feeling a little longer with a small bit of member health crme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). He should look specifically for a crme that contains vitamin A. Also known as retinol, vitamin A is a powerhouse in fighting against member odor that might result from sweat. Manhood itching can also be alleviated with the use of Shea butter and vitamin E, two hydrating partners that keep skin smooth and supple.
