Sores are an eye-sore, especially when on the member. They can happen for many reasons, some of them harmless and some of them even deadly. Whether they are filled with pus or are just bumps with a shooter of pain, they need to be taken care of and quickly. Be sure to treat male organ sores with care, and no matter their cause, see a doctor if concerned. |
Member Sore Causes
Here are some of the most commonly cited causes for male organ sores. The first five are non- STIs, and the second five are all STIs.
1) Friction Burn. Rubbing the mister too much and all that friction can cause sores. Avoid wearing any underwear, shorts, or pants that are too-tight and when commencing in amorous activities, be sure to properly lubricate.
2) Folliculitis. This can happen anywhere hair grows! Folliculitis in the male organ is when infected hair follicles create pus-filled male organ sores around the hair shaft. It’s nothing to be concerned about and will often clear up on its own. Some men opt to add razor burn serums, like Tend Skin, to the area to quicken the clearing process.
3) Psoriasis. Men who have psoriasis on other parts of their bodies may also develop it on their member. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
4) Allergic Reactions. Rashes and sores can result from all sorts of allergens and irritants. It can be anything new to him such as laundry detergent or body wash. To clear things up, clean the member gently with a soft, clean, damp cloth and follow up with a specially formulated crème for the member.
5) Candida. When there’s too much yeast in the body, it can overgrow causing itching, redness, swelling, chunky white discharge, and white sores on the member. Usually, treatment involves topical antifungal creams. It’s transmittable, so avoid coupling and let current artners know so they can be on the lookout.
6) HPV Warts. This STI is caused by a viral infection. Warts, which often look like sores, often show up on the glans, the foreskin, shaft, and entire pubic area. They may also have a discharge which will cause itching.
7) Lymphogranuloma Venereum (LGV). A somewhat STI, LGV starts as an ulcer that shows 3 – 10 days after infection in the first stage. It can often disappear or go unnoticed until Stage 2 begins in which the lymph nodes in the privates start to swell.
8) Chancroid. It’s a bacterial STI recognized by painful sores on the male organ. It’s only spread through sensual contact. Treatment usually includes drainage and a round (or more) of medications to clear up the infection.
9) HSV. This virus is one of the most common causes of male organ sores. It is spread through intimate contact and can cause watery sores which eventually burst and crust over, leading to itching and redness. Those with HSV will require lifetime treatment to control outbreaks as there is currently no cure.
10) Syph. Syph is another STI caused by bacteria. It leads to symptoms such as fever, skin rash, swollen lymph glands, and hair loss. If caught in the early stages, it can be treated. If left untreated, this disease can lead to blindness, loss of cognition, and even death.
How to Keep Male Organ Sores from Popping Up
Here are a couple of common-sense ways to avoid male organ sores altogether. First, when it comes to coupling, take a note out of Salt N Pepa's playbook and talk about it. Talk to intimate partners about sensual health before having relations. This creates a safe space to talk about any existing issues, past experiences that weren't so great, or trade the dates each person was tested for STIs and what the results were.
The next step is a little easier - have good hygiene habits. Wash daily (or more if you work out or are intimate) with a gentle cleanser and warm water. Pat dry with a soft towel and ensure the area is completely dry (bacteria loves moisture). Then condition the area with a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). Crèmes such as these not only restore and rejuvenate the delicate manhood skin but also keep the area fresh and bacteria free. Choose cremes that are built on a natural moisturizing base like Shea butter and vitamin E. Adding vitamins A, B, C, and D for their skin-soothing and cell regeneration properties is also a huge bonus as well.
