When a man has member pimples, he might not be sure what to do. This primer helps him decide how to handle the situation.

Member Pimples: What Every Guy Needs
to Know
When a man looks down and sees member pimples, he might be more than a
little concerned. That’s especially true if the pimples are accompanied by a
sore, red manhood that might indicate something more than a benign
condition. What’s a man to do when he’s facing such a conundrum? Should
he simply step up his male organ care, or should he go to the doctor to figure
out what’s really going on? And if he does choose to ramp up his male organ
care, is it okay to pop the pimples in an attempt to make them go away
faster? Here’s what a man needs to know.
Most member pimples are benign
Fortunately, a man who looks down to see member pimples is probably
seeing run-of-the-mill acne, the same type that he might develop on his face
or back. As he probably already knows, the acne will resolve on its own.
Acne like this usually shows up as small white bumps surrounded by a little
red coloration, just as he might see on his face. They will often appear near
the base of the male organ.
Some men might notice member pimples that appear in a line, almost like a
tiny string of pearls right underneath the male organ skin. These often appear
around the glans. Though they can look rather off-putting for some men,
they are nothing to worry about. These “pimples” are actually pearly
papules, an entirely benign condition that afflict many men at some point in
their lives. Since they don’t cause any problems, most doctors don’t
recommend doing anything to remove them.
However, it’s important to recognize that sometimes, acne and papules can
mimic the look of socially shared infections. Herpes is one socially shared
infection that can mimic the look of member pimples at first. Therefore, if a
man is encountering member pimples or papules for the first time, it’s a
good idea to visit the doctor and get a second opinion on what those really
How to handle member pimples
Many men will be very tempted to simple squeeze member pimples to get
rid of them, but this is actually the last thing he should do. Squeezing or
otherwise disturbing member pimples can push any small infection deeper
into the skin, which can result in a broader infection and a painful, red
Rather than popping the pimples, a man should step up his male organ care
regimen. He should carefully wash the area, taking care to get the areas with
the pimples very clean. Then the application of a physician-approved
medication that contains salicylic acid is a great idea. This will help reduce
the appearance of the pimples and allow them to heal faster. However,
because male organ skin is so delicate, a guy should never opt to use an over
the counter medication for acne until it is approved for use by his physician.
It’s important to note that if the member pimples are accompanied by an
excessively red manhood, itching, pain, discharge or other problems, a guy
should seek a physician’s attention immediately.
The use of over the counter medication (or prescription, depending upon the
situation) can leave the male organ skin dry and red. To help relieve that
problem, a man can reach for a specially formulated manhood health crème
(health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically
proven mild and safe for skin). Applied on a daily basis to the male organ
head and shaft, a good crème will contain Shea butter and vitamin E, the
better to hydrate the male organ skin and ensure it stays supple and smooth.
In addition, a guy can look to a wealth of vitamins with antibacterial
properties, such as vitamin A, and alpha lipoic acid, which is known for
fighting against the free radicals that can make male organ skin look old,
tired and dull.
