Unzipping the jeans to discover a red penis can instantly cause tremendous alarm, especially if this redness is accompanied by other symptoms such as itching or pain. However, often these symptoms are easily treated, once the source of discomfort is identified. Here are some common causes of penis redness and how to treat them, increasing overall penile health at the same time.
Common Causes of Red Penis include:
1. Sexually Transmitted Diseases
There are some sexually transmitted diseases that can compromise penile health by causing redness, itching or pain. Such illnesses include syphilis, herpes or genital warts, for instance. There might be other symptoms noted, too, such as small lumps forming on the penis, fluid-filled blisters or flaking skin. The best way to deal with these illnesses and keep symptoms under control is to consult with a doctor who will prescribe the best medicine to treat the sexually transmitted disease and give advice on how to avoid transmission.
2. Jock itch
A fungus that grows in warm areas of the body, such as in the buttocks, inner thighs or groin, can cause Jock Itch. This fungus usually grows on or in the top layer of the skin and is caused by the same type of fungus that results in athlete’s foot or ringworm of the scalp. The fungus that infects the groin could actually have been spread from an athlete’s foot infection. This is why it’s so important to treat the primary fungal infection and prevent it from spreading. Jock Itch usually has symptoms such as itching, pain, or a rash in the groin area, inner thighs, buttocks or skin folds. Sometimes the edges of the rash could be distinct or reveal scales or bumps that resemble blisters. Anti-fungal creams are a must to prevent the fungi from growing or causing more discomfort. Consulting with a doctor will provide the correct treatment for the specific condition.
Eczema, otherwise known as dermatitis, is a skin condition that can affect any area of the body, even the penis. Symptoms usually include itchy, red patches that could also lead to flaking of the skin. It can sometimes be caused by coming into contact with an allergen, such as lubricant products, latex or fabric softeners. This is especially the case for men who have sensitive skin. It’s important to consult with a doctor to find the source of the eczema so that the proper treatment can begin.
4. Aggressive or Frequent Sex Occasionally, frequent sex or penis stimulation that is overly aggressive can lead to redness. The penis can become dry, red, sensitive, or even sore. Although this might be frightening, symptoms usually start to ease after a day or so. The best treatment is to give the penis a chance to recover on its own (skip rough penis stimulation for a while) so that the bumps, redness or soreness can disappear. It’s also a good idea to use a penile cream or oil that can soothe the area, rejuvenate the penis skin and help to get rid of any rashes or bumps that could have formed. A penis vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) may contain ingredients such as Vitamin E and Shea butter to improve penis moisture, prevent dry penis skin and ease the symptoms of a red or irritated penis. By doing this, such men can expect to see improved penile health.
