Most men are quite familiar with their member, and as such, can spot problems as soon as they appear. One of the problems that might sneak up on a man, however, is male organ discoloration. Even with regular inspection and proper member care, sometimes male organ discoloration can be so gradual that a man doesn’t realize it is happening until one day he suddenly realizes, "Hey…something looks wrong here!" |
The good news is that most cases of male organ discoloration are caused by very simple reasons. Remember, the manhood skin is sensitive to many things. That includes things a man might take for granted otherwise, as the skin on the rest of the body is so much thicker than the skin on the member. Here are some of the most common reasons for manhood skin discoloration:
1. Friction burns. Though it sounds awful, most men have actually suffered friction ‘burns’ at some point during their sensual life. A man who gets into any kind of sensual fun without proper lubrication is at risk of member irritation and redness that occurs as a result of the friction that comes from that activity. The friction can lead to a darkening of areas of skin on the member. This can linger for a few days.
2. Bruises or hematomas. When the manhood sustains an injury, it can lead to bruising or in some cases, larger hematomas. Often the first sign of bruising is a change in member color from the usual to something green, yellow or even brown or black. In most cases a man is very aware he suffered an injury and is prepared for the bruising. Hematomas are larger and might present as bumps under the skin. If a man is worried about bruises or hematomas on the member, it’s a good idea to check with the doctor to make sure all is well.
3. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Known as PIH for short, this condition might occur as the male organ heals from an injury, such as a serious friction burn. The manhood skin might seem to return to normal, but then it changes color again, usually to a darker shade. This is because the immune response of the body has ramped up production of melanin in that area, which can lead to darker skin tones on the member. Though it is not a cause for concern and will fade with time, a man who is truly worried can bring it up as his next doctor’s visit.
4. Fungal infections. Some men might experience discoloration of the male organ in response to fungal infections. The most common culprit is a yeast infection, which can come with many symptoms, including pain upon urination, a thick discharge from the member and itching or burning. One of the first signs might be male organ discoloration; specifically, a darkening or reddening of the head of the manhood. This condition requires the help of a professional to treat.
Though there are other reasons for male organ discoloration, most of them are quite rare and would need a doctor’s evaluation to determine the cause and treatment. The good news is that most cases of male organ discoloration are very straightforward and remedied with time and good member care.
One way to help maintain the best manhood care possible is through the use of a high-quality member health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Look for a crème that enhances blood flow, which brings more oxygen-rich blood to the male organ. A crème containing L-arginine for blood vessel health and alpha-lipoic acid to fight against age spots is a great start. The best crèmes will contain nutrients and vitamins in a Shea butter and vitamin E base, which provides the hydration a member needs to stay smooth, supple and ready for action.
