5 Ways Men Should Care For Their P*nis
Many men have shared their opinions that most articles on hygiene are always about women but today, we will be focusing on how men can take care of their penis and other parts of their bodies.
Cleanliness is a major factor in the body and taking care of your penis will not only keep it clean, but it will also prevent your likelihood of testicular cancer and other penis-related issues.
When most people think about penis health, they think about sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and erectile dysfunction (ED).
While these conditions can certainly affect the health of your penis, penile health is about so much more than that.
There are many different things that can affect the health of your penis, including your hygiene practices, lifestyle changes, and any underlying health conditions.
Here’s what you need to know to keep your penis in good health.
- Always Clean up: The best way to care for penis health is that your penis should be cleaned daily. So should your bottom and the area in between, called the perineum. Use mild soap as these areas can be sensitive.
How to Wash Your Penis: You can wash your pubic area using warm water and unscented, mild soap. Don’t use harsh soaps or scrub the area too hard, as the sensitive skin in the area can be irritated.
Make sure you:
- Wash your pubic mound and the skin around the base of the penis, as well as the skin between your thighs and your pubic mound. Sweat can collect here.
- Wash the shaft of your penis.
- If you have a foreskin, gently pull it back and wash it. This helps to prevent smegma build-up, which can lead to conditions like balanitis.
- Wash your scrotum and the skin around it.
- Wash your perineum (the piece of skin between your scrotum and anus).
- Wash near your anus and between your butt cheeks.
2. Do Regular Examination Yourself: It is not just women who need to get their breast check to prevent cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men. To identify and prevent penis health problems. For this reason, every week you should examine each testis (the plural is testes) in turn between your finger and thumb by rolling the skin over them. The most common symptom is a lump of any size but you should book an appointment with your doctor if you have any new feelings in the scrotal area.
3. Erection problems: Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is, unfortunately, common from middle age onwards and it’s caused by a narrowing of the blood vessels that pump blood to create and maintain an erection. This narrowing may occur for a number of reasons but high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking are high on the list. Giving up smoking seems like a no-brainer, and maintaining healthy body weight and undertaking regular exercise reduces your risk of developing high blood pressure and diabetes.
4. Protect from sits: The best way to prevent sexual diseases and take care for penis health in terms of hygiene as sexually transmitted infections are invisible and often give no symptoms for many years so you won’t know if you’ve just passed one on, so you should always wear a condom. They significantly reduce the risk of the transmission of STIs.
5. Make good use of your penis: To keep your penis healthy & strong, make the ejaculation part of your daily routine. Here’s why: a large Harvard study of nearly 30, 000 men found the risk of prostate cancer was 33 percent lower in men who’d ejaculated at least 21 times per month, compared to those who ejaculated only 4-7 times per month. This included ejaculations during sex, masturbation and, um, ‘nocturnal emissions’
