Male Organ Bumps Could Be Ingrown Hairs

Male organ bumps can cause a partner to find the manhood unattractive. In some instances, these bumps may be the result of ingrown hairs, especially if a guy manscapes.

Male Organ Bumps Could Be Ingrown Hairs
Male organ bumps can be caused by many different factors and, depending
on what the root cause is, may signify something serious. Very often,
however, male organ bumps are a sign of a relatively benign issue and don’t
mean a serious manhood health crisis is present. One reason for male organ
bumps that may surprise men is simply ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs are hairs that get under the skin, become inflamed and create
bumps. Most often ingrown hairs occur after a hair has been shaved or
tweezed off. They are most frequently found in men with curly hair, as the
curvature of the follicle makes it easier for it to grow back under the skin.
When a razor cuts a curly hair, it creates a sharp ending; if the hair is cut at a
point where it is curving inward, the sharp end is able to pierce the skin and
grow inward. This is more likely to happen if the skin is being shaved while
dry and if the skin is pulled tight while being shaved.
Known medically as pseudofolliculitis barbae, ingrown hairs that cause male
organ bumps are much more common among men who shave their
midsection area. (They also occur more commonly on the face and can occur
on the torso, arms or legs, if a man shaves any of those body parts as well.)
With manscaping becoming more popular, the potential for more male organ
bumps from ingrown hairs is increasing.
Ingrown hairs can be recognized from the following symptoms. Remember,
a man does not need to have all the symptoms to have an ingrown hair.
 Small, rounded bumps
 Small lesions that are filled with pus
 Skin darkening in the affected
 Pain and itching
 Embedded hairs
In addition to the possibility of male organ bumps, ingrown hairs can cause
other complications. Because the bumps tend to itch, scratching too much
can lead to irritation and a possible bacterial infection. In some cases,
scratching may also lead to small cuts in the skin. For people who are so
inclined, these cuts may turn into keloids, scarring that occurs in a “raised”
form that tends to spread out over a greater area than the cut itself.
Men who manscape should take some precautions to help prevent ingrown
hairs (and subsequent male organ bumps). These include:
 Be sure to wash the area with warm water before shaving.
 Find a gentle lubricating shaving cream (or gel); be sure it doesn’t
contain harsh chemicals which might irritate the sensitive skin.
 Only use a sharp razor, never a dull one. After each stroke of the
razor, rinse it clean.
 Don’t pull the skin too tight while shaving.
Ingrown hairs often resolve on their own. However, if the bumps continue,
or if they become infected, contact a doctor to determine the best way of
treating them.
Male organ bumps due to ingrown hairs are often accompanied by other
male organ skin issues. Keep the member in better general health by
regularly utilizing a first rate manhood health crème (health professionals
recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for
skin). Male organ skin needs to be moisturized, so select a crème that
includes both a high-end emollient (Shea butter is very good) and a natural
hydrator (such as vitamin E). In addition, enrich the skin by choosing a
crème with a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid. This will enable the
skin to fight excess free radicals and thereby better avoid the heavy damage
caused by oxidative stress. Keeping male organ skin strong and healthy can
help keep the manhood strong and healthy.
