Yow! Itchy Male Organ from Neurodermatitis

Yow! Itchy Male Organ from Neurodermatitis
An uncontrollable urge to scratch an itchy male organ is a familiar sensation
for every man. When a guy is alone, of course, there’s no problem; but when
in a social, public situation, the last thing a guy wants is to be caught with
his hand rubbing his male member. If the itchy male organ is more than a
passing problem, it may be a male organ health issue that needs attention. In
such cases, identifying the cause of the itchiness is necessary.
Neurodermatitis may be that cause in certain cases.
What is neurodermatitis?
According to the Mayo Clinic, neurodermatitis is a skin condition that starts
with a patch of itchy skin. When it is scratched, it itches even more,
encouraging a person to scratch it again. Over time, this itch-scratch-itchscratch cycle results in the affected skin thickening and taking on a leathery
aspect. These areas may also have a raised, red, rather rough aspect.
Neurodermatitis can appear anywhere on the body, including the member
and/or sacks. It’s not uncommon for it to occur in several locations at once,
so that a man might have an itchy male organ as well as, say, an itchy foot
and an itchy posterior.
Neurodermatitis is considered benign, which is to say it is not life
threatening in any way. (However, persistent itching can in some cases
create an infection, which does need to be attended to.) But it is intensely
annoying, and it can cause significant sleep disruptions, as well as impact
quality of life and even, unfortunately, sensual function. In addition, because
it is physically unattractive, it can be a source of embarrassment and may
cause a person so afflicted to feel self-conscious or ashamed. This is doubly
true when the disease occurs on the manhood or sacks.
Causes and treatment
Doctors do not yet know the exact cause of neurodermatitis. It often begins
from simple skin irritation, like a mosquito bite or clothing rubbing the skin
the wrong way, and only develops into visible neurodermatitis from the
repeated scratching. Although women are more often affected, it is also
found with some frequency in men. It’s often associated with other skin
conditions, like eczema, psoriasis or dry skin, and stress can trigger an
outbreak. Perhaps most maddening, the urgency to scratch is usually strong
when a person is relaxing or trying to sleep.
Unfortunately, neurodermatitis is thought of as a lifelong disease. Rather
than being able to treat the disease itself, doctors have to treat the symptoms
– the itchiness, the dry, rough skin, etc.
There are numerous options which may be employed to stop the itchiness.
These include the use of corticosteroids, cold compresses, antihistamines,
and proper moisturizers. Since stress can bring about recurrences, antianxiety medication may be recommended for some. Specialized
phototherapy (using lights to heal skin) is recommended by some, as are
special medicated patches.
Especially when neurodermatitis is on the member and causes intense
emotional responses from a man, it may be beneficial to work with a mental
health professional to develop strategies for dealing with these negative
An itchy male organ which is accompanied by dry skin, whether due to
neurodermatitis or other factors, can benefit from the use of a first rate male
organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil,
which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). However, it is essential
that the crème selected is one with superior hydrating capabilities. For this
reason, choose a crème that includes both a high-end emollient (such as shea
butter) and an exceptional moisturizer (such as vitamin E). In addition, a
crème with a potent antioxidant can help to strengthen skin. One such
antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid, works to decrease excess free radicals which
will otherwise result in oxidative damage.
