Alcohol-related conditions in men

In Britain, almost 10% of men show alcohol dependency tendencies. And all that 10% risk complex health issues if they don’t ditch that habit. According to the NHS, men that regularly indulge in alcoholic beverages risk a series of conditions, among which cancer takes a leading position.

In the short run, alcohol can lead to injury, accidents, poor sexual performance and low energy levels. It can also increase the risk of heart failure, in case of prolonged use.

According to specialists’ recommendations, men should not exceed 14 units of alcohol weekly. Besides, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer recommends splitting the quantity you drink between multiple days and don’t exaggerate with the amounts you ingest at once. But let’s see what happens in men who exceed the recommended weekly amount.

Short term risk of injury

The short-term effects of binge drinking are different in both genders, mainly because they process alcohol differently. Although men tend to show fewer signs of intoxication than women do when drinking the same quantity, they are more exposed to all negative effects because they enjoy indulging more in similar beverages.

Besides, men’s bodies store significantly less water than women’s bodies do. This is one of the reasons why they process differently alcohol.

When intoxicated, men tend to show risky and aggressive behaviour. This makes them more vulnerable to alcohol-related accidents and injury.

To prevent similar events, men must limit their intake below their personal intoxication limit. Besides, specialists recommend spreading the quantities of alcohol that both genders ingest evenly between a couple of days.

Lowered sexual performance and fertility issues

While some men drink alcohol to get the confidence they need and ditch inhibitions, in large quantities, alcohol can lower sexual performance and lower their sperm count.

According to multiple studies, excessive alcohol consumption in men might lower the chances to conceive. However, once men break their excessive drinking patterns, the negative effects are lowered. Once they stop drinking, men can achieve again proper libido and improve their sperm quality and quantity.

While excessive drinking lowers hormonal activity, it can also keep sperm cells from reaching maturity. This makes the cells unable to travel to and fertilize the egg. When the liver doesn’t metabolize Vitamin A as it should, sperm movements become chaotic. This also contributes to infertility.

Sometimes, excessive drinking can also result in erectile dysfunction, mainly because it affects the nervous system. In this case, natural conception is nearly impossible.

Weight gain

Excessive drinking can make you look worst. Have a guess, how many calories does a pint of beer have? Well, somewhere around 300. That daily dose of alcohol s making you fat, and this is a fact. But the calorie count in each pint of beer is not the only thing that can make your BMI grow.

Your metabolism is getting slower with each measure of alcohol you drink.

Fun fact: your body is unable to store alcohol. Now, it works intensively to burn it. Burning up fat is not important anymore for your body. In the long run, you’re more likely to develop unattractive features. Man boobs or excessive growth of mammary tissue, hair loss and skin conditions are the most frequent results.

If you want to look your best keeping your alcohol consumption in line is one of the best suggestions we could offer.

Gout and an array of other health concerns

Gout is a terrifying condition, pretty similar to arthritis. Sufferers experience inflammation, pain, and swelling in their joints and the most exposed to developing it are middle age men.

But this isn’t the only complex condition you can get from abusing alcohol. Liver damage, bone disease, cancer, heart conditions, diabetes, depression and anxiety, pancreatitis, stomach inflammation are only SOME of the most serious health concerns you expose yourself to.

Tips to curb alcohol consumption

There are many strategies you could use to curb alcohol abuse. The easiest one is to admit that you have drinking issues and search for professional help, according to Help4Addiction.

Getting yourself admitted to a professional rehab centre can help you turn your life for the better.

Similar establishments can help you “re-wire” your brain’s normal functions and connections. Medically-assisted rehab centres can help patients overcome withdrawal symptoms and identify the root of their alcohol addiction. If you’re not in the phase where you’re addicted to alcohol, there are other strategies you can use to limit your alcohol intake. Here are some of them.

  • Find better stress-coping mechanisms.
  • Turn from alcohol to self-care practices.
  • Keep track of your alcohol intake with the help of a smart app.
  • Alternatively, use a journal.
  • Get into exercising. It’s nearly impossible to work out while intoxicated.
  • Pick up a hobby.
  • Set daily and weekly alcohol limits.
  • Have someone keep you accountable for your alcohol consumption.
  • Counselling might work, but find an addiction counsellor.
  • Change the way you think of alcohol. If you see it as a social outlet, have a drink for social interaction purposes and switch to non-alcoholic beverages after.
  • Understand how alcohol consumption can damage your relationships and interactions.
  • When searching for specialised centres, find the ones that offer a holistic approach.
  • Mental health issues can sometimes be the root of alcohol addiction, so get yourself checked by a professional.

Apart from having huge drawbacks on men’s health, alcohol consumption can lead to serious mental issues in both genders. Alcoholics’ personal relationships also have to suffer. These people tend to isolate themselves and find their happiness in drinking.

They might say hurtful and hateful things to their loved ones while under the influence. Make sure you evaluate your drinking habits periodically. Ask your friends and family for feedback on how much you drink. Sometimes, it can be difficult to keep track.

If they seem to all agree that your drinking habits do more harm than good, listen to their advice and get yourself admitted to a rehab centre. This may be the easiest way to overcome such issues.

Erectile Dysfunction

Sildenafil vs Tadalafil – Which ED Drug Works Better?  

According to the Urology Care Foundation, at least 30 million men experience erectile dysfunction in their lifetime. Among the known causes of erectile dysfunction or ED are stress, age, medical conditions such as diabetes and heart problems, and physiological condition. Most culture look at Erectile Dysfunction as a condition that reflects a man’s weakness. Because of this, men with Erectile Dysfunction often suffer alone and rely on online drugs to treat themselves.

 

Top Two Erectile Dysfunction  Drugs

There are two popular ED drugs known in the market today. These are sildenafil citrate (marketed as Viagra) and Tadalafil (marketed as Cialis). Viagra was the first FDA approved Erectile Dysfunction medicine approved in the late 90s while Cialis was approved in the early 2000s. Both medicines were heralded as miracle drugs though, in the medical world, miracle drug is mostly associated with Viagra.

How to choose the best ED drug? Here are some factors that you should consider.

Price of Erectile Dysfunction  Drugs

One of the first thing that you can check when choosing an ED drug to trust is the price. Viagra from Pfizer is sold for £ 85.74 for a pack of four while Cialis from Eli Lilly is sold for £ 103.7 for a pack of four. Depending on your country, the price might vary. Take note that Cialis is sold at a higher price though because of its effect.

Sildenafil vs Tadalafil

Availability of Erectile Dysfunction  Drugs

Both Sildenafil and Tadalafil are sold in most markets. These are FDA-approved drugs hence you can easily find them from your local pharmacies. You can also order these ED drugs online.

When ordering online, make sure to trust reliable online pharmacies only.

 

The Effectiveness of Erectile Dysfunction  Drugs

 

When it comes to effectiveness, Sildenafil Viagra works 30 minutes after taking it. It is the same with Cialis. The only difference is how long each drug stays effective. Viagra is known to last for four hours while Cialis lasts for up to 36 hours. If Viagra is the miracle drug for ED patients, Cialis is the weekend pill.

Side Effects of Erectile Dysfunction  Drugs

Although Sildenafil and Tadalafil are two different synthetic chemicals, they work in the same way. These ingredients act as a PDE-5 inhibitor that leads to an erection. When used incorrectly, these drugs have the same side effects. Common side effects associated with ED drugs are headaches, nausea, and back pain.

Conclusion

 

So which ED drug works better? It will depend on your doctor. Before taking an ED medicine, talk to your doctor first. Your doctor would know the best ED medicine for you based on your medical history and current medical condition.

When it comes to training for better health, and well-being, many gym-goers have a person in mind that they aspire to look like. Packing on some serious muscle to fulfill your body goals, however, can be quite a challenge, even with an inspiration in mind. Luckily, putting on muscle doesn’t have to be the headache you may think. Here’s our guide to building muscle naturally and leave the “s” word where it should be – on the shelf and away from the gym! Let’s begin where any underpinning principles of building muscle naturally should: nutrition.

Nutrition. When looking to build muscle mass, your body needs excellent nutrition that includes the right amount of calories. You wouldn’t expect a plant to grow without feeding it! However, this does not mean carefree eating and consumption of calories but instead eating more healthy fats and proteins. Over 3,000 calories can be a starting point if paired with the right workout routine that can adequately burn and regenerate these calories. Include more carbohydrates than fats as well as high protein intake. This is harder than it sounds and the idea is to teach yourself how much it takes to grow – the natural way. You can fine tune your intake at a later point and adjust your diet to avoid gaining fat. Eating is a skill and believe it or not, your body needs to get used to a hypercaloric diet.

Keep in mind that calorie intake won’t be the same for everyone. Some people will struggle to eat as much as expected while others will eat what is needed but won’t be able to burn it properly, potentially causing fat weight gain. However, if you are not a big eater or if you struggle to access this amount of calories during your busy day, then read on for your next top tip.

Supplements

If your hefty diet is on point and the calories are there to be consumed, then supplements will boost this progress to no end. Furthermore, if you’re not maxing these calories and you haven’t got the time or access to this amount of intake, then here’s another place where supplements can be your friend. Adding supplements to your diet can really transform your progression towards naturally building muscle. Whey protein is a classic supplement to help meet your required protein intake but also to help support, rebuild, and recover muscle mass when training and exercising. Creatine monohydrate is also a must as well as multivitamins. In addition, caffeine or coffee can give you a great pre-workout boost before hitting the gym. Lastly, natural testosterone booster supplements can push your body forward and help with adding those stubborn extra pounds of muscle mass.

Workout

There’s no possible way to gain weight without the right workout regime. Exercise and workout routines need to be specifically in tune to your goals, and if your goal is to build muscle mass naturally, then you need access to volume training. This requires lifting heavy objects, however, we don’t necessarily mean strength training but instead lifting heaving things over and over again. This repeated volume training means lesser weight but higher reps.

Another exercise tip is to focus on using compound movements and exercise during your workouts. These are your squats, deadlifts, bench press, and overhead presses. Find out what your one rep max lift is and use weight that is around 70% of this with high reps. Aim for six rep sets of one exercise and hit around 8 to 12 reps for each set. If you can do more, then increase the weight. If you’re only pushing out 3 or 5 reps, then lower the weight. This way you are aiming for hypertrophy training where gaining muscle mass is actually the primary goal.

Recovery

Let’s go back to nutrition, the staple to the muscle-building process. If you’re not feeding your body, it will be very hard to recover after a hard workout and ever more difficult to get up the next morning ready to workout again. Lots of rest and recovery will help you grow and build muscle. Training with plenty of volume and weight three times a week is a requirement. The rest of your time should be spent eating well, sleeping, and relaxing as much as possible.

As we all know, taking steroids helps bodybuilders pack on muscles in super quick time. Give the terrible mental and physical consequences of using steroids, it’s unquestionably better for your overall health to stick to a plan where you can gain muscle naturally. Plenty of natural bodybuilders who train just as often and as hard are reaping the rewards of the above process, so stick with these tips and you’ll be on your way to the body you’ve always wanted in no time.

In this day and era, a lot of science and research has gone into the medical field, and specifically the sector dealing with human sexual health, as well as reproduction. Since the invention of Viagra, it has been a godsend product for many men all around the world who suffered from erectile dysfunction. Viagra which goes by the scientific name, Sildenafil Citrate, is a medication used in the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension and erectile dysfunction. The drug was patented in 1996 and approved for use as an erectile dysfunction treatment in 1998, becoming the first approved oral treatment for erectile dysfunction in the United States. Since it’s sales have gone on rising all over the world, signifying its unimaginable demand and importance. Its common side effects include heartburn and headaches, while its adverse effects include prolonged erections, which may lead to damage of the penis.

However, in recent years results of studies have shown that one of the ingredients in the drug can cause blindness. These findings show that Viagra can cause permanent damage to the retina and the researchers say that the drug is not as safe as many people thought it was before. The studies have found that the drug can not only cause loss of eyesight in men with previous eye problems but also in those with seemingly normal vision. Some research carried out by Australian researchers showed that Viagra could cause blindness in men with an inherited eye condition by the name, retinitis pigmentosa, as well as those with normal sight, but who carry the gene for the condition.

Viagra and blindness
Viagra and blindness

One theory supporting this is that erectile dysfunction drugs, which Viagra falls under, may obstruct an enzyme which is important in the transmission of light signals from the retina to the brain. Reports from other studies show that this is a rare condition and is caused when blood supply is reduced to the optic nerve, hence causing permanent nerve damage. Though scientific research shows the connection between the drug and blindness in men, others argue that it is rare as over twenty-three million men have used Viagra since 1998, and the reported cases are minimal compared to a large number of users.

 

Some researchers around the world are now pushing for the manufacturers of the drug to include this mention of the rare cases of varying vision loss on the drug labels, so as to caution the users, however, this has found opposition from the makers of the drug, Pfizer Inc. The manufacturers argue that those are rare cases, compared to the over 23 million users all over the world since 1998. The condition of sudden loss of vision known as NAION (Non- Arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy), which as mentioned, occurs when blood flow to the optic nerve is blocked, is also considered a very common cause of sudden vision loss among elderly people, hence complicating the issue more. The risk factors for this condition include heart disease and diabetes, which constitute two of the leading causes of impotence.

The manufacturers of Viagra, Pfizer Inc. already have warnings on the labels of the drugs about, one having temporary vision changes, where one can have difficulty distinguishing between green and blue or seeing blue tinges, showing the drug apparently has temporary effects on the retina, but that is a totally different issue from NAION. There isn’t widespread concern over these findings by several studies, but calls are slowly increasing to carry out more and bigger studies to clarify and ascertain the already existing findings.

The results of gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction are meant to be permanent since the glandular tissues, skin and extra fat will be gone for good. However it is vital for you to follow a few instructions and guidelines during the gynecomastia surgery recovery period so as to have the most hassle free post-surgical experience.

Recovery time:

The total gynecomastia surgery recovery time generally varies between 4-6 weeks depending on how the patient’s body is healing. You need to undergo total bed rest for the first 3 days so as not to disrupt the healing process. Just after the surgery the patient might feel pain, discomfort and tightness in the area which can be managed with pain medications. The stitches will be removed within a week or ten days after the surgery after which there is a possibility of swelling.

One of the key factors behind a successful gynecomastia surgery experience is a proper understanding of the do’s and don’ts during the post-surgical period. Keep reading this article to find out all you need to know about what to expect after your gynecomastia surgery.

Things to expect after male breast reduction surgery:

Nausea:

This is one of the most common problems which can result from the anaesthesia, antibiotics or the pain medications. Always ensure that you take the medicines with proper food. If the problem persists then your doctor might suggest you to stop the pain medications.

Bruising and swelling:

The bruising and swelling are a normal occurrence after a gynecomastia surgery. The bruising can either be limited to the area around the breast or it could expand to the chest and abdomen. The bruises are usually red, black or purple or a combination of all these colours. The bruises would keep increasing in the first 3-4 days after the surgery and then slowly become yellow in colour and fade within another 7 days.

The swelling can be either localized or diffused. Localized swelling doesn’t require any kind of treatment. However in case of diffuse swelling you need to apply cold compress for two days followed by warm compress for another few days.

Severe Swelling:

Severe swelling which can often accompany the surgery can be of the following kinds:

Hematoma: Is like a severe accumulation of fresh blood which might happen within ten days after the surgery. It leads to rather painful swellings on the breast area which might feel sore and hard to touch. While cases of severe swelling calls for immediate treatment, the next day treatment is okay for less severe cases.

Seroma: The seroma is a mixture of blood products and body fluids which is generally taken out through a large syringe puncture with local anaesthesia. The patients need pressure dressing for three to five days after the treatment of hematoma or seroma.

Lack of energy:

Your energy level is going to go down for up to eight weeks. Make sure to have a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. Also try to get as much rest and sleep as you can for quick recovery.

Scarring:

The incisions are going to fade out slowly though it might take up to a year for them to properly heal. Continue using the surgical take as instructed by your doctor. Incisions generally take some time to heal so you need a bit of patience. You can make use of scar reduction creams after consulting your surgeon.

Swollen chest area:

Your chest area is going to be tender and swollen for a few weeks after the surgery. There is no need to be bothered by this since the swelling is going to subside with time. Remember that your body heals asymmetrically which is why one side of your chest might be swollen while the other side is not. Consult your doctor if there is a marked difference in the swelling on the sides.

Scar tissues:

A few weeks after the surgery you might start to notice a few lumps in your chest area. This is nothing but the scar tissue formation which is one of the commonest side effects of a male breast reduction surgery. The scars might feel like a hard bumpy area around the nipples or towards the armpit.

Emotional ups and downs:

It is common for patients to go through emotional disturbances immediately after the surgery. The emotional ups and downs could continue for up to a week or ten days after the operation. Know that this is a very common side effects so try and reach out to your close ones.

Things to do and avoid after gynecomastia surgery:

Activity:

Immediately after the surgery restrict your movement to less than 15 minutes a day. Try not to lift anything heavier than five lbs and avoid having sex for at least two weeks.

Sleep:

After a breast reduction surgery the patient needs to rest at an angle of 45 degree for a minimum of three days after which you can sleep normally if you want.

Sun exposure:

Direct exposure to sunlight should definitely be avoided for at least a month and half after the surgery. Contact with the sun rays would prolong the swelling and might lead to permanent discoloration. Moreover exposure to sun in the early stage can make the scar more noticeable afterwards because of hyper pigmentation. Make sure to apply a sun screen while going out topless for at least six months.

Shower:

It is recommended that you don’t take a bath in the first 2 days following the surgery.

Medicines:

Make sure not to take any kind of blood thinners including aspirin coated items for at least 7 days.

Work:

You can get back to the sedentary jobs within three days after the operation. However jobs which are physically strenuous needs to be avoided for one or two weeks. Ideally you need to modify your jobs or get a helping hand.

The complications of atherosclerosis

The disease is also known as atherosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD) which is thickening of the arteries due to fats build up. After a period, the arteries harden and become narrower such that blood flow is a problem. When not attended fast, the disease can lead to other complications which might include the following:

  1. Heart attack

This can happen when the fats found in the artery melts down. The fats can lead to a complete blood cut off supply to your heart which leads to a heart attack. Without blood, the heart shuts off completely because its operations are dependent on the blood supplied.

  1. Angina

When your muscle isn’t getting enough blood as required, there are a number of operations which cannot function normally. The low blood supply causes pain or a kind of a discomfort due to the tissues straining to cope up with the low blood supply.

The complications of atherosclerosis

iii. Stroke

Stroke results from a blood clot preventing blood to reach your brain. If your blood supply to the brain is limited, a mini stroke can occur where some organs fail to operate normally. If the fat melts down completely, a blood clot can form which can cause a complete organ failure and eventually a stroke.

iv. Peripheral arterial disease

This happens when your legs cannot get enough blood. You might experience a lot of pain around your hips or thigh when walking because the tissues needs more blood (oxygen for respiration) than available amount.

The disease is very common in old people who have attained 65 years and above. In addition to age, the following factors can be predisposing factors:

  • Regular and heavy smoking
  • Being physically inactive
  • Eating food with high cholesterol levels
  • Being overweight or an obese
  • Having a high blood pressure condition
  • Being diabetic (type 2 diabetes)
  • Being born in a family with complications of atherosclerosis over time

Most people do not notice they have this disease until they experience the first signs of infections mentioned above. Having regular check-ups with your doctor is very important because you can be able to start the treatment process earlier.

There is no known cure to the disease but there are therapeutic and preventive measures which can be put in place by health technicians. Among the preventive measures are smoking cessation and diet restrictions which have been proven to be very helpful to patients. In additional to treatment, a physical assistant is very helpful in fighting cholesterol, obesity and fat problems.

Unfortunately, rectifying baldness isn’t always possible. This will force some men to find ways to hide their baldness. As mentioned above, a cap will sometimes do the trick. However, some men will want to consider using a toupee. A toupee will hide the problem in a cost-effective manner, but it won’t fix the problem. Nonetheless, it is still a good solution for many.

 

Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgery is the best solution to hair loss. Its many benefits also come along with a few downsides, including pain, expensive, and very time-consuming. However, once the scalp is numbed with local anesthesia, you will not feel any discomfort throughout the procedure. The procedure involves removing a patch of healthy scalp from one site to a bald spot. The reason men and women choose this option is because it renders permanent hair.

In order to be a candidate for hair transplant is there must be enough thick hair on the sides and back of the scalp. Since most hair loss occurs on the top and front of the scalp, this is not normally an issue. If you have the extra money to invest, you should definitely consider this method, because the result is excellent hair growth that can be groomed and cut.

Man Boobs also known by its medical term as Gynecomastia which is Greek for women like breasts, is a wide spread condition and effects around 40 to 70 percent of all males. It may affect only one breast or both and it is an extremely embarrassing condition for those suffering from it. Teenage boys or adult males can be burdened with this condition and typically, self-consciousness and obsessive thinking becomes the norm.

people with gynecomastia work overtime to camouflage their unwanted protrusions. They wear loose clothing and avoid any activities that want baring their chests in public places.

Men with gynecomastia generally have a deep seeded desire to get rid of their manboobs or moobs as they are commonly known, and often withdraw socially to avoid exposure and in spite of their anguish, have a reluctance to talk about their condition with anyone.  They feel abnormal, can be sometimes confused about their masculinity, and frequently suffer from social embarrassment and psychological distress. Understandably, such a condition can also have a devastating effect on personal relationships and intimacy with members of the opposite sex.

The first point of consideration for those closest to a sufferer, especially in the case of a youthful male, is to acknowledge the symptoms mainly through any obvious changes or changes in a kid’s behavior, and be well prepared to offer as much support as possible.

To the end, the first step to helping them take care of the solution is to encourage them to learn about the condition: it is prevalence, its causes and its remedies. This will help those to view their unwanted breast development as the common male condition that it is, somewhat compared to an unusualness. Then a trip to the doctor would more than likely be their next move to determine the type and severity of the condition.

Gynecomastia-grades

Causes of Gynaecomastia or ‘man boobs’

Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. The cause of this decrease can be conditions that block the effects of or reduce testosterone or a condition that increases your estrogen level. Several things can upset the hormone balance. however, once its causes have been identified, gynecomastia can usually be reversed with a few simple changes to their everyday lifestyle.  The causes of gynecomastia are numerous, for example:

  • Gynecomastia can develop because of unhealthy weight (OBESITY)
  • In body builders who often use muscle-building bodily hormones
  • In athletes as a result of steroid use.
  • From smoking marijuana and alcohol ingestion in excess.
  • From the prolonged use of certain prescription drugs or perhaps the misuse of other drugs.

Health Conditions Can Cause Gynaecomastia or ‘man boobs’

Several health conditions can cause gynecomastia by changing the regular balance of human hormones. For instance:

  • Hypogonadism. Any of the conditions that obstruct with normal testosterone development, such as Klinefelter problem or pituitary insufficiency, can be associated with man boobs.
  • Hormone changes that occur with normal increasing age can cause gynecomastia, particularly in men who are overweight.
  • Some tumors, such as those involving the testes, adrenal glands or pituitary gland, can produce hormones that alter the male-female hormone balance.
  • In this condition, the thyroid gland produces too much of the junk thyroxine.
  • Kidney failure. Half of people being cured with regular hemodialysis experience gynecomastia due to junk changes.
  • Liver failure and cirrhosis. Hormonal fluctuations related to liver problems as well as medications considered for cirrhosis are associated with gynecomastia.

Male organ pain, discharge from your penis, and testicle pain that co-present in a male patient are typically caused by one of four common infections. Guys who are experiencing any or all of these symptoms should schedule an appointment with a physician for analysis and treatment; in general, these conditions can usually be treated quite easily with the right medications.

Although not all attacks can be prevented, a common-sense approach to personal care and penis health can help men to reduce the chance of contracting a painful condition.

Testicle Pain, Penis pain and Discharge

urinary tract infection (UTI)

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection of the urethra and/or bladder. A UTI is normally caused by bacteria moving up the urethra, or urinary tract. Different symptoms besides penis pain, discharge from the urethral opening, and testicle pain may include burning on urination; frequent urges to urinate without much released; and pain in the low back, under the steak.

Urinary tract infections most time are difficult to treat; treatment includes taking antibiotics, drinking plenty of liquids – particularly normal water and/or cranberry juice, and urinating often to clear the bladder and remove the infection.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is considered the most commonly diagnosed STI, (Sexually transmitted infection). As the first sign is often a burning or itching sensation on peeing, men may mistake this condition for an UTI. Other symptoms include a watery or slimy release from the penis, foiling at the end of the penis, and pain in the testicles and anus.

Chlamydia is curable with the appropriate antiseptic therapy. However, an estimated 90% of men who are carrying the disease never show any symptoms, so those who are sexually active should be screened regularly to avoid passing the infection to a partner.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is another bacterial disease that is often propagate through intimate contact. The highest rates of disease are among teenagers who have multiple sexual associates. Symptoms include itching or burning during urination; over cast urine; a yellowish-green or white discharge from the end of the penile; aching or pain in the scrotum; fever and sore throat.

Testicle Pain, Penis pain and Discharge

Much like chlamydia, gonorrhea can be cared for using antibiotics. These STIs can generally be averted by practicing safe making love and frequent screening for common STIs.

Shingles

Contrary to the other conditions defined here, shingles is the result a viral infection. It generally occurs in adults who have not had the chicken pox, although individuals who have had the chicken pox may also be infected. Aside from penis pain, discharge, and testicle pain, men who develop shingles may have an unpleasant, severely itchy rash that develops into blisters. these may burst and develop a crust. Treatment generally consists of anti-viral and pain medications.

Avoiding infection and caring for the male organ

Short of never leaving the house and living in a completely sanitized environment, there is virtually no magic bullet when it comes to contracting the occasional bug that can cause some unpleasant symptoms. Nevertheless, using common sense when it comes to hygiene and sexual practices can help to reduce the risk of infection.

First and foremost, attention to daily hygiene is essential. Cleansing away the buildup of body oils and excretions lowers the probabilities that any associated bacteria will make their way into the urethra or penetrate the outer layers of the skin.

Second, although most men understand the risks of sexually transmitted infections, it can be easy to throw caution to the wind in the heat of the moment. However, while unprotected sex may give momentary satisfaction, it can come with long lasting consequences. Being open and honest with potential lovers about any STIs they could be carrying – and making it mandatory on always using safeguard – should become a habit for all intimately active men.

3) Hair Follicles. Hair follicles are more prominent in some individuals than others. They have the appearance of several small, unformed nodules under the epidermis of the scrotum and at the base of the shaft of the penis. Occasionally, one may become infected with an ingrown hair and take on the appearance of a pimple-like bump that may also be filled up with white pus. This is no cause for matter, and the bump should resolve itself in several days.

4) Angiofibromas. As well known as pearly male member papules, these small dome-shaped or jagged bumps look throughout the head of the penis. A common condition, occurring in 10-20% of all men, they are really more likely to afflict uncircumcised men than those who are circumcised. These penile bumps aren’t infectious and do not require medical therapy.
5) Psoriasis. Psoriasis appears as a red patch with a clear border, it might have a scaly or smooth structure. Psoriasis can result from friction while masturbating or sexual intercourse. It may require treatment with a steroid cream to totally clear up, but it is not an attacks condition.
