Smegma Infection Symptoms and How to Clear it Up

Smegma Infection Symptoms and How to
Clear it Up
People may want the funk, but not the chunky white smelling kind. That's
right – smegma. Smegma didn't start out as all bad. Smegma is actually the
end-result of the body's masterful self-cleaning skills and is an odorific
concoction of oil, dead skin cells, and other fluids. However, elves and
fairies won't come to clean it up for a man; he has to do it himself. And
when he doesn't…it isn’t pretty. Not only does it stink, but it also can lead to
infections and embarrassment in more intimate moments. The good news,
however, is it’s easy to clean up and even easier to prevent.
Smegma Infection Symptoms
Unlike wondering if the barista at Starbucks is interested or just providing
excellent customer service, smegma is pretty apparent. It’s also one of those
conditions that doesn't show a lot of variances. Since it’s physically seen,
smegma infection symptoms are pretty unswerving. There are a few
common smegma symptoms which include:
 A foul or sour odor coming from the male organ. ‘Nuff said on that
 An off-white and dense texture with a cheese-like consistency.
Nope, it’s not cottage, it’s head cheese (as it’s known colloquially).
And the aforementioned smell will go toe-to-toe with the finest
 Burning and pulsating urination. Nope, your member didn’t turn
into a dragon; it’s the smegma. Men who experience this may also
find they feel the urge to pee more frequently as well.
 Irritation. The skin on the privates gets red, irritated, and angry.
Smegma Causes
The cause of smegma is pretty much one and only one thing – not cleaning
the region thoroughly or often enough. When a man neglects his nether
region and doesn't correctly and meticulously wash his privates (or his body
for that matter), all the layers of sweat, dead skin and body oils unite to
infect the body. In simplest terms, the absence of a properly performed
hygiene regimen will result in smegma. Men who don’t wash daily, don’t
wash after workouts, don’t wash after intimacy, or don’t wash with purpose
(looking at those guys who get in the shower and wash their hair think the
sudsy flowing down their body will do the rest of the work) are prone to
While not a cause of smegma, being intact puts a man at higher risk for
having smegma simply because under the sheath is smegma’s favorite place
to live. To avoid smegma and hygiene issues, some of these men decide to
get cut.
Treating Smegma Infection Symptoms
How do you treat smegma? If you don’t know, now you know. It’s easy.
Simply perform a daily grooming ritual. This ritual should center around
precisely cleaning the male organ, including around and under the sheath.
Then rinse, dry, and moisturize. For the more detailed fella, here's a detailed
how-to for cleaning up and keeping the area smegma-free.
1. Gently pull back the sheath. If the smegma has hardened, it may not
be possible to retract it all the way. Don’t force it! It can cause pain
and tear the skin and that may lead to infection. Soak the area in warm
water for a prolonged period of time to loosen the smegma. Oil can
also help. Do not use a scrub or scrubber though. That will tear the
delicate skin, inviting bacteria and causing intense pain.
2. Use a mild cleanser and warm water to wash the entire area. Be gentle
but thorough. If the smegma hardened, again rub some oil (olive or
coconut is great) on it first to break down the smegma gently.
3. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry when done cleansing.
4. Condition the male organ with a specially formulated male organ
health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil,
which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) after every
cleansing. Choose a cream that has a natural moisturizing base like
Shea butter and vitamin E to nourish the male organ. Then add
vitamins A, B, C, and D for their skin-soothing, elastin, and cell
regeneration properties.
5. Repeat daily until the smegma disappears and continue to follow this
new process to prevent smegma.
If the smegma isn’t better after a good week of thorough cleaning, or if it’s
getting worse, see a doctor for treatment. Otherwise, get to washing!
