While men may not use all the tonics and potions created for the facial skin, preferring a more rugged look, when it comes to their members, men notice immediately when something seems to be off. Discoloration on the manhood is one of those issues that often makes a man take notice of his skin and can lead to unnecessary panic. Most reasons for a discolored manhood are results of a small injury, and the coloring fade with time; although there are a few potential reasons for worry. Here are a few of the most common causes of discoloration on the manhood and how to manage them. |
1) Bruising - One of the quickest ways to get a discolored manhood is through injury. After an injury, bruising can appear in a variety of discolorations, from purple to blue or even a greenish hue. If there is an excessive pain post-injury, seek medical attention immediately. It could be a more serious issue like a fracture.
2) Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) - It’s completely normal for men to have some variance of skin coloration. However, if a man notices that skin has darkened suddenly or within a short span of time, it’s understandable he may worry. Most times it’s just post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is simply an overproduction of melanin, the body’s skin pigment maker. The skin can appear in a wide variety of colors including blue, gray, or dark brown.
Overproduction generally happens after an injury to the skin, the most common being excessive rubbing of the manhood from vigorous coupling or self-pleasure. It will fade over time, or if a man is bothered by it, topical treatment with retinol each night before bed can accelerate healing.
3) Vitiligo - Vitiligo is known as the "white skin patch disease" made most famous by the late Michael Jackson. This skin disorder is caused by a loss of melanocytes from the epidermis. Vitiligo most often occurs as a discoloration on the foreskin. It must be diagnosed by a doctor through a physical exam. It can be treated with medication, creams, lasers and surgical techniques.
4) Hematoma - If a man is seeing red, blotchy skin or blood vessels under the surface of the skin, he may have a hematoma. This happens after an injury to the organ. The discoloration on the manhood will fade in time; however, if he feels pain or discomfort, medical attention should be sought.
5) STIs - Sometimes purple sores on the member can be evidence of a partner-transmitted infection. STIs may accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, fever, itchiness, burning, and fatigue. Head to a medical clinic or see a physician as soon as possible to be tested and get treatment.
Preventing and Caring for a Discolored manhood
First and foremost, practice safe contact. Use barrier protection to prevent STIs and always have an open dialogue about social and medical history with partners, even if it ruins the mood. Next, wear appropriate protective gear during group or adventure sports so that the manhood is not an unfortunate casualty of a pick-up basketball game. Also, be sure to monitor the vigorousness of coupling and self-gratification so pleasure doesn’t turn painful.
In addition to those tips, practice good grooming to keep the manhood in top shape. Cleanse regularly and thoroughly with a gentle cleanser. Follow up cleansing with a specifically formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to soften and soothe the skin. These specially created crèmes should have a nourishing, natural base like Shea butter and include vitamins and nutrients like vitamins A, B5, C, D, and E to promote healthy skin and cellular function, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid to reduce the signs of cellular damage and aging. These crèmes leave the member hydrated and promote healing.
