Men's Health Issues – Red Spots On Penis And Penis Rash Symptoms

Posted: 12/09/2012 |Comments: 0 | Views: 104 |

A recent posting to a men's health forum described a young man with a common problem:

Hi, I am 18 years old, and I just had sex for the first time. We didn't use protection, but she said she was clean, and I know I don't have anything. After we were done, I noticed four or five red dots on my penis. The next time I masturbated, they came back, and the whole area around my head turned red. I went to the doctor for testing, but I am still waiting for the results. Should I be worried about an STD?

While it is impossible to know the cause of this patient's symptoms without more information and testing, redness and spots are not necessarily a sign of an STD. Numerous other penis skin conditions can present as a rash or red bumps, and it is helpful to recognize the signs of common penis problems. On the other hand, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as the saying goes. All men should use protection during sex, especially with unfamiliar partners. In addition, maintaining overall health of the head and shaft through daily care with penis-specific vitamins and minerals can help to guard against red spots on penis skin, as well as rash, irritation and other uncomfortable symptoms.

Some common causes of red spots on penis skin

• Fordyce's Spots - This benign skin condition presents as reddened or flesh-colored spots or bumps on the skin of the penis and/or scrotum. These spots are normally asymptomatic - they are not associated with bleeding and they are not transferrable. While some men are concerned about their appearance, as they can be mistaken for genital warts in some cases, treatment is generally not necessary except as a cosmetic preference. In addition, the use of vitamins and other nutrients essential to skin health may help to promote a healthy skin tone and minimize the appearance of blemishes and spots on the penis.

• Yeast and fungal infections - The genital area is a haven for all kinds of microbes, including yeast and fungus. While these are normally harmless and do not cause any symptoms, imbalances in body chemistry can cause yeast or fungal overgrowth, leading to infections that may present as red spots, rash, itching and burning of the penis skin. Maintaining skin balance through proper nourishment of the dermal tissue and keeping the area clean and dry can help to prevent these organisms from proliferating and causing uncomfortable and unattractive skin infections.

• Hair follicles - Often, men mistake the appearance of irritated hair follicles as warts or sores. However, red spots on the penis that occur around the base of the shaft may simply be due to ingrown hairs, especially in men who shave the genital area. Soothing the skin with natural healing agents such as vitamins A and C and keeping the area moisturized may prevent the appearance of reddened bumps after shaving or waxing.

• Aggressive handling - The most frequent cause of reddened bumps or spots on the penis is nothing more than assertive masturbation or sex. Overuse can create minute fissures in the skin's surface, making it appear reddened and rough. Maintaining the tone and texture of the penis skin through use of healing vitamins (A, C, and D are usually indicated) as well as all-natural moisturizers can help to sooth the skin and prevent irritation.

Maintaining smooth, clear penis skin

Avoiding and treating red spots on penis skin and scrotum means maintaining good hygiene, as well as wearing non-restrictive clothing and supporting skin health through use of vital nutrients and antioxidants. Health professionals often recommend care with a penis health formula (such as Man1 Man Oil) which contains skin nutrients and natural moisturizers that are effective in protecting skin health and maintaining a smooth, supple appearance.
