Sometimes a man can feel extra sensitive to his partner. In rare cases, this is actually true and it can be said that he is allergic to his partner. After intimate play men can break out into rashes, hives and itching localized either on the male organ skin or on various other parts of the body. For some men this is a minor irritation but for others it can become a major health problem. Male organ-specific vitamins and minerals, skin crèmes, and allergy testing can go a long way to restoring romantic harmony. In some cases a man may have to avoid contact with his spouse for long periods of time, or just during certain times of the monthly cycle. However if irritating and painful symptoms persist visit a healthcare practitioner at once.
The symptoms experienced may vary, but should usually begin during or directly after personal contact with a partner. Symptoms may include:
If the inflammation or itching is chronic and/or ongoing it may not be an allergic reaction at all but a condition known as balanitis; a form of contact dermatitis that affects the male organ. If there is discharge coming from the male member then infection from bacteria, viruses or yeast is also a possibility. If symptoms worsen progress to the point where breathing becomes difficult or the inflammation spreads, seek out medical attention immediately.
In 2005 the Daily Mail published a news report concerning a man who was diagnosed as being allergic to his girlfriend. After ruling out various skin products, doctors determined that his body was producing antibodies in reaction to particular hormones in his girlfriend's skin and bodily fluids during particular times of the month when her hormones were changing. However this sort of allergy is extremely rare and in the majority of cases the reaction may be caused by something else. Lubricants, male member gel products, latex, skin care products, soaps, deodorants, perfumes, shampoos, and laundry detergents are all possible allergens.
The problem may also be caused by a food allergy. Doctors from St Helier Hospital in England published a case study in 2007 of a woman who was allergic to Brazil nuts who would experience skin reactions after having intimate relations with her partner. Although this was a case of a woman with an allergy to her male partner it is of course possible for a man to experience an allergy to food proteins in a female partner's bodily fluids and tissue.
Treating a man who is allergic to his girlfriend can be challenging. If the problem is due to hormonal changes occurring during the girlfriend's cycle then the symptoms can be almost completely eliminated by reducing physical contact during certain times of the month. Using polyurethane protection and switching to low-allergenic skin care products intended for sensitive skin may also help considerably.
However if the reaction stems from foodstuffs the girlfriend is eating it won't make any difference which products are eliminated or what days of the month you spend together. Allergy tests such as hair analysis, skin pricks and EAV electro-acupuncture testing can be very effective in diagnosing food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances
Health crèmes are natural products that can help to treat inflammation, itching, hives and allergic reactions on the male organ skin. Containing natural vitamins, antioxidants and oils that benefit tissue integrity and immune health, health crèmes can be applied to speed the recovery of skin cells and possibly calm hypersensitive tissues. Specialist formulas (most professionals recommend Man1Man Oil) contain vitamin C as a natural anti-histamine and immune support, vitamin E as an anti-inflammatory, alpha lipoic acid for male organ nerve health, and shea butter for anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
