Spots, bumps or rash on penis skin and the surrounding area can be caused by numerous different skin conditions. Most of these are minor and non-contagious, but any sign of penis rash symptoms should be checked carefully. Soothing irritated skin and healing minor rashes on the penis is often a matter of proper skin care, using all-natural cleansers, as well as moisturizers containing penis-specific vitamins and minerals, in order to improve the resiliency and healing ability of the erogenous tissue.
The following descriptions may be useful in identifying common causes of penile skin rash, bumps or spots. It is important to remember that penis rashes and other skin issues that do not clear up after a few days could be a sign of a more serious condition requiring medical treatment.
Symptoms: Dryness; itching; swelling; and raised, spreading rash on penis
These symptoms are often caused by a penis skin allergy or sensitivity to materials in the environment. Clothing dyes, detergents, plants, deodorants and fragrances are common causes of allergic reactions. Many men are also sensitive to the latex used in the manufacture of many types of condoms.
Avoid contact with the material in question. Wash the area thoroughly and dry completely before dressing. To soothe discomfort and boost healing, apply a penis vitamin creme to the area at least once per day; continue application after the rash heals to improve the tone and texture of the penis.
Symptoms: Red rash with well-defined borders; dryness and flaking
These symptoms are often an indication of a chronic skin condition known as psoriasis, which also affects other parts of the body. Psoriasis symptoms may be worsened by masturbation or sex. While this condition is not contagious and cannot be passed on to a sexual partner, it can cause embarrassment, as it may be mistaken for an STD or other communicable disease.
Psoriasis may be treated with steroids in some cases. However, vitamin A, also known as retinol, has been used successfully in the treatment of this common, yet problematic skin condition. Men who want to avoid the use of steroids, which can have a variety of unpleasant side effects, should talk to their doctor about using a penis vitamin cream containing vitamin A and other healing nutrients.
Symptoms: Red rash, swelling, crusty blisters, sores
These uncomfortable symptoms may indicate a skin infection such as impetigo.
In general, an infection will need to be treated with medication. However, treating the penis skin with a healing vitamin formula can help to keep the area moisturized and boost the natural healing properties of the dermis, preventing microbial agents from entering through tiny lesions in the skin and causing infection.
Symptoms: Flesh-colored or red bumps at the base of the penis and/or on the scrotum
These are most likely nothing more than ordinary follicles, although ingrown hairs may also cause similar symptoms.
Treatment in this case is mainly for cosmetic purposes and may include applying a vitamin formula to the area to support healthy skin texture and tone, as well as to help prevent bacteria from entering the follicles and causing infections as described above.
This list of symptoms and treatments is not exhaustive. There are multiple other types of penis rash symptoms that are common in men of all ages. Any rash symptoms of the penis that are accompanied by flu-like symptoms such as headache, fever, or cough should seek immediate medical treatment.
Avoiding penis rash symptoms
As with any other medical condition, prevention is always the best treatment. Keeping the skin balanced and well-nourished and supporting the natural immune properties of the outer dermal tissue are the most effective means of keeping the penis healthy and supple-looking. Applying a penis health formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) containing nutrients such as vitamins A, C, E, D and B5, as well as all-natural moisturizers, can help to maintain the condition of the penis skin.
