Itchy Penis And Bumps Appear On The Testicles?
Previously, my penis felt itchy, and shiny bumps appeared on the testicles. So for that I tried to apply salt to the area. When I applied it to my pubic skin I immediately reacted, it felt very sore. What do you think this is because of?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The skin around the penis is generally quite thin. Therefore, contact with an irritating substance, such as salt, can certainly trigger a very intense burning or burning sensation. In the medical realm, this condition is known as irritant contact dermatitis.
The appearance of itchy bumps on the penis can occur due to many factors, including:
Insect bites Allergic contact dermatitis Irritant contact dermatitis Infections, for example: Folliculitis (hair root infection) Tinea cruris (fungal infection) Scabies (mite infection, scabies) Genital herpes Syphilis Genital warts Molluscum contagiosum, and so on You should stop applying salt to the genitals so that the irritation does not get worse. Check with your doctor directly so that you can get the appropriate treatment. If it is true that the trigger is irritation, then treatment will be given by administering anti-inflammatory drugs. However, if infection or other triggers are suspected, other treatments can be given according to the cause of your complaint.
In the meantime, always clean your penis with clean running water after every time you urinate and have sex. Choose pants that are not tight, clean, and soft, absorb sweat. Do not scratch the itchy penis too often, especially peel off the bumps forcibly. Also avoid applying anything to the itchy bumps if not ordered by your doctor.
Hope this helps ..
