Male Organ Rash from Shingles? It Happens

Shingles is not just an old man’s disease – even a young guy can get it, and when it happens in the mid-section, a painful male organ rash may develop.

Male Organ Rash from Shingles? It
Good male organ care is essential for maintaining a guy’s favorite body part
in its best condition. Not only is a healthy manhood better positioned to
perform at appropriate levels, but it also tends to be more handsome and
appealing. And sine first impressions are important, a man wants to have a
piece of equipment in his pants that looks good and healthy – not one that is
sporting an off-putting male organ rash. Taking good care of member skin
can help prevent a male organ rash, but there can be other causes of skin
conditions, like shingles, which can still pop up unexpectedly.
For young guys, too?
But, wait – isn’t shingles an old man’s disease? Should a healthy young guy
really be worried about it? Well, worried, no – but he should be aware of the
possibility, because shingles is NOT something which occurs only in old
age. True, about half of all shingles cases occur in people age 60 and over,
but even children can come down with it.
So what is it?
People talk about shingles, but do they have more than a vague idea of what
they are talking about? Shingles is a viral disease featuring a skin rash that
tends to be localized but occurs in a fairly wide swipe. The rash can be
anywhere on the body, including the member, sacks and general midsection
area. Many people report feeling a tingling sensation in the affected area for
a few days before the rash appears. In some instances, there may also be
fever, headache or pains associated with the shingles outbreak. Many people
find the rash, which may turn to blisters, to be painful to the touch.
Most cases of shingles clear up within a few weeks, but in some cases there
may be lingering nerve pain which can last for months or even years.
What causes it?
Shingles is actually caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. If a
person contracted chickenpox as a child, the virus remains in their system in
an inactive state – and it can be activated later in life and cause shingles.
A person can also contract the virus if they come into physical contact with
the blisters on an infected person. For this reason, a person with a male
organ rash caused by shingles should abstain from sensual contact with
another person until the rash has cleared up, to prevent the risk of spreading
the virus to a partner. Of course, since significant pain is often present in the
area that is affected by shingles, the manhood may be too sensitive to
withstand sensual contact anyway.
A man with shingles on his member should consult with a doctor to
determine treatment. Pain medications (often basic over-the-counter kinds)
may be recommended, as well as antiviral tablets or corticosteroids. If nerve
pain is present, the doctor may recommend wearing loose-fitting underwear
and trousers. Some men find that cold compresses applied to the manhood
can lessen the pain during an outbreak. Oatmeal baths and calamine lotion
can help if the male organ rash results in excessive itchiness.
The male organ rash caused by shingles is but one of many potential skin
conditions which can affect one’s male organ health. Rashes with a topical,
non-viral base are more likely to be prevented by regular application of a top
notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1
Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). It helps to
find a crème that contains both a high end emollient (such as shea butter)
and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E, which together can create a
moisture lock to keep member skin properly moisturized. A good crème will
also include a powerful antioxidant; alpha lipoic acid is a superb example of
one. The antioxidant helps fight excess free radicals which otherwise may
cause oxidative stress that weakens sensitive manhood skin.
