Dry Penis — Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
If you have a dry penis, then the most common causes of this condition are as follows:
Dry Penis Skin — Penis skin looks dry or feels dry to the touch. This is often caused by sexual activity that may be extended or rough, especially frequent or aggressive masturbation. A dry penis, in the majority of cases, is the result of continuous friction and the lack of lubrication or sufficient nutrients that all skin needs to be kept in optimal condition. In this situation, penis skin will require time to repair itself, which may take up to 7 days once sexual activity has ceased.
Symptoms — Penis skin looks and feels "dry." Skin may also be flaky or peeling and may be painful to the touch.
Treatment — Cease sexual activity for at least 24 hours and apply a nutritional penis créme (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to prevent the skin of the penis from drying out further. It is also highly recommended that you purchase and continue to use a penis moisturizing product that contains ingredients Shea butter and Vitamin E to keep penis skin healthy and supple as well as prevent dry penis skin from re-occurring.
Allergic Reactions — Detergents, soaps, latex, spermicides and deodorant perfumes can all irritate your penis and cause the skin to become dry.
Symptoms — Symptoms include skin irritation and dryness, redness, and, possibly, a rash.
Treatment — Wash your penis and, through a process of elimination, try and work out what could be irritating your skin and causing a dry penis. Then, use an alternative brand of the product that is causing the irritation.
Psoriasis — Commonly known as inverse psoriasis when located in the genital area, this form of psoriasis affects the genitals, pubis, upper thighs and thigh and groin area as well as the thigh, groin and buttocks creases and the anus skin.
Symptoms — This psoriasis differs from plaque psoriasis in that it is not scaly in appearance. Instead, it will appear as a dry lesion that may look smooth and red in color.
Treatment — Consult your doctor who will prescribe topical crémes or ultraviolet light treatment to rectify this condition. Do not leave the condition untreated as it can spread to other parts of your body and become unsightly.
