Swelling Of The Male Genitals Suddenly?
Night . I want to ask about my genitals which suddenly swelled up by themselves, that’s why when I woke up and wanted to take a shower suddenly my genitals swelled in the ring of the head where the stitches were circumcised. When I wore my underwear, the swelling increased a little more . If you remember, before the swelling I experienced pain in the upper part of the genitals near the right groin but it didn’t hurt too much. How to deal with it and what is the cure
Hello Chous, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Swelling in the neck area of the penis may be caused by inflammation of the head of the penis called balanitis. Balanitis can occur for many reasons, including:
Poor penis hygiene Irritation of the penis due to cleaning the penis too hard or using harsh soaps, soap residue that is not cleaned after bathing, using certain creams, deodorants or perfumes on the penis Sexually transmitted infections Fungal infections Allergy to certain substances used or applied on the penis and so on. Some other possible causes of swelling in your penis besides balanitis include:
trauma / injury to the penile dermatitis in the area of the penis, Peyronie's disease which can give the appearance of an enlarged penis, penile cancer. To find the right therapy to treat the swelling in your penis, you should first know the cause clearly. Therefore, it's a good idea to see a Urologist for further evaluation. The doctor will ask more clearly about other symptoms you experience besides a swollen penis, a history of sexual intercourse, the use of certain drugs, creams, or deodorants on the penis, etc. The doctor will also perform a direct examination of your penis.
Some of the things you can do right now:
Keep the penis clean by washing the penis every time you shower. Use a gentle, unscented soap to wash the penis and make sure you rinse it thoroughly. Do not use perfume, deodorant, or apply any cream to the penis. Soak your penis in warm water to help reduce swelling.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
