Penis Health 101 – What Causes Penis Blisters?

Posted: 06/12/2012 |Comments: 0 | Views: 159 |

Penis blisters can develop for a number of reasons. Some of these can be easily treated at home, but it is important to see a doctor for a firm diagnosis before attempting to self-treat any type of blisters on penis skin or the surrounding area. Men who have signs of blisters or other open sores should abstain from sex until the condition clears to avoid passing it on to a partner. Making smart decisions about partners, using barrier protection and adequate penis care and hygiene are recommended for preventing chronic penis problems.

Some common causes of penis blisters:

STDs

While there can be other explanations for the appearance of watery blisters, penis blisters can be symptomatic of socially transmitted diseases such as genital herpes and syphilis. Even men who think they have been careful about their partners should be tested for these and other social diseases if they notice blistering on the head or shaft of the penis. Abstaining from sex until a positive diagnosis has been made and the condition has been successfully treated is urged to avoid spreading the disease to others.

Penis cancer

In rare cases, blisters on the penis can be an early indicator of penis cancer. Since early diagnosis is critical to the successful treatment of cancer, any suspicious spots, moles, sores or blisters should be checked by a doctor.

Rough masturbation

Frequent and/or aggressive masturbation, especially without the help of a lubricant, can cause irritation, soreness and even blistering on the head and shaft of the penis. Moisturizing the penis skin regularly and using a personal lubricant during manual stimulation may help to prevent friction-related blisters. If they do occur, it's best to take a break for a few days to allow the skin time to heal. Treatment with skin-friendly vitamins such as A, C and D may help to speed the healing process and prevent toughening of the affected skin.

Yeast infection

While less common than other symptoms such as itching, redness, rash and a whitish, lump discharge, yeast infection of the penis (also known as thrush) can cause the formation of white or watery blisters on the skin. Treatment with an antifungal cream is generally recommended for yeast infections, but men who are experiencing these symptoms for the first time, or who develop frequent yeast infections, should be evaluated by medical professional. Supporting the natural chemical balance of the skin through regular use of a penis vitamin cream may be helpful in preventing common penis infections such as thrush.

Folliculitis

Inflammation of the skin follicles (pores) can sometimes cause the appearance of blisters on and around the penis. While these generally subside on their own, cleansing the skin carefully every day, shaving with a clean, unused razor and applying a natural antibacterial such as vitamin A may help to prevent the development of folliculitis.

Scabies

Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by a parasite. It typically presents as itching, skin rash, and in some cases, the formation of blisters. Scabies is generally treated with a topical medication. While it may not be possible to avoid all incidence of skin infections such as scabies, keeping the skin smooth, well-moisturized and blemish-free may prevent the formation of microscopic skin lesions which allow microorganisms to penetrate and gain a hold in the body.

Preventing and treating minor penis skin conditions

There are no guarantees that men will not develop some type of penis skin condition such as blisters, rash, itching, and/or inflammation, adequate penis care can go a long way toward boosting overall penis health and protecting the body against disease. Bathing regularly, rinsing away the dead skin cells and body oils that accumulate under the foreskin, using protection during sexual encounters and nourishing the skin with a high quality penis health formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can be helpful in maintaining a healthy penis and decreasing the likelihood of contracting an unpleasant disease of the penis skin.
