Male Organ Chafing: Everything You Need to Identify and Cure This Comm By John Dugan

Summary

Male organ chafing is a common issue for men, especially those that exercise regularly. Even though it can be painful and unsightly, chafing is usually a harmless problem and easy to fix. Some common causes for chafing in the private area and solutions are explained here.

Full Content

As any exercise enthusiast knows, male organ chafing is a common and unsightly problem. Even though it’s largely innocuous, the discomfort caused by chafing can limit activity if not handled properly. Luckily, when given the right treatment, a chafed member can be cured quickly. The following are ways to identify a chafing, find the cause of the problem, and alleviate pain.

Chafing or Rash?

To stop the pain, it’s essential to figure out whether you’re dealing with a chafed member, or just a rash. Each of these are caused by entirely diff

erent factors and require different solutions to fix. A rash is usually caused by exposure to bacteria and is often accompanied by an insatiable itch that won’t go away on its own. In the case of a rash, often the skin will be raised. Chafing in the private area, on the other hand, is marked by red, flakey skin caused by excessive friction.

Here are a few of the most common causes of private-area chafing:

1) Restrictive clothing – One of the most common reasons for chafing is nothing more than restrictive clothing. Tight garments can cause the member to uncomfortably rub against the upper thigh or clothing and that excessive friction will often be the cause of a chafing. Opting for a looser style of pant can usually fix this problem, as can switching from close-fitting briefs to looser-style boxers.

2) Irritating materials – Rough, uncomfortable materials are another common culprit for chafing on the member. Those prone to chafing should never forego undergarments, especially when wearing pants made of wool, denim or other fabrics that can easily cause friction. The sensitive region should always be protected by materials that won’t stretch or tug on the privates. When choosing undergarments, pick materials that are smooth and allow for easy movement. Cotton is usually a good choice for everyday wear, whereas a synthetic material is a better choice for strenuous activities.

3) Profuse Sweating – Damp skin is more likely to cause friction, making excessive sweat another common cause of chafing in the private area. In this instance, be sure to pick moisture-wicking materials when participating in high-intensity activities to keep the area dry. Though a common material, cotton traps moisture making it a poor choice when exercising. Instead, opt for synthetic materials that will wick sweat away from the member. After vigorous activities, it’s also important to change out of sweat-soaked gear and into dry, clean clothes.

4) Harsh Detergents – Even the best choices for undergarments can cause chafing if it’s washed with a particularly harsh detergent. Dyes and fragrances in laundry soaps contain chemicals that disinfect and deodorize clothes. For those with particularly sensitive skin, those ingredients can cause the clothes to be irritating, causing chafing. To combat this, pick detergents advertised as “fragrance-free” and “dye-free”.

Relieving the pain and healing the skin

No matter why you’re experiencing chafing, it’s usually an easy problem to fix. For immediate relief, start by cleansing the area with a mild soap, or even washing with water alone, depending on how severe the chafing has become. If your chafed member has become particularly irritated, just water may be enough given that soaps can sometimes cause further discomfort. After washing, make sure to thoroughly dry the area, as damp skin can cause further friction and chafing. Using a clean towel, dry the area by patting, instead of rubbing, to prevent more irritation.

As a final step, a male organ health creme (most health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) can be applied to sooth the affected area. When selecting a crème, look out for vitamins known for their healing properties, like Vitamin A, C, D and E. Chafing is a common problem in men, but its symptoms can be relieved easily and effectively.
