Itchy Penis Relief Hints for Soothing an Irritated Member Photo by John Dugan

Few things are as universal as the fact that every man suffers at some point - often daily - from an itchy penis. There are many things, including bathing, that a man can do to keep from scratching his tool all day; appropriate penis care demands that a guy do what he can to eliminate the itching.

Bathing is essential

There is a difference between washing and bathing. Washing in this instance would refer to applying water, with or without soap or another cleanser, to the penis with the purpose of initiating cleaning, usually as part of a regular hygiene routine. Men should do this to remove the bacteria and dirt that can easily accumulate on the penis.

On the other hand, bathing in this instance means something a little different. First, it implies an actual bath in a bathtub, as opposed to a shower or a quick rinsing at the sink. A bit more is required with bathing: more water, more time, more care.

Second, the aim is not cleanliness per se, but comfort and soothing. The penis may enter the bath dirty and exit it clean, but curing the itch is the real goal of this kind of bath.

Third, for de-itching purposes, the bath will need to contain something more than just water. It is the addition of something extra that creates the conditions that will soothe the over-itched penis.

What are some of the ingredients that can be used to create this soothing environment?

1) Salt. Adding Epsom salts to a nice warm bath can create a mixture that is balm to itchy skin, especially that which is caused by psoriasis. Psoriasis causes the skin to develop a thickness, called plaque, which is especially susceptible to warm salt water. Soaking for at least 15 minutes is recommended for best results.

2) Oil. Adding olive oil is another way to attack the plaque and get psoriasis on the run. An especially itchy penis may require the use of both oil and salt in one bath.

3) Baking soda . This common household cleaning product can be used in two ways. First, it can simply be poured into the bath and allowed to disperse throughout the water as one soaks in it. Second, it can be mixed with a little water and applied as a paste to the itchy penis; let it soak into the skin for a few minutes before getting into the bath and then letting it disperse into the water.

4) Oatmeal. Oatmeal is a popular ingredient in many skin care products nowadays, and with good reason: it's an excellent way to soothe and treat itchy skin without drying it out. Adding about one cup of oats to a bath can help not only dry skin and common dermatological issues like eczema but can also help with itchiness related to poison ivy and chicken pox.

5) Cornstarch. Adding cornstarch to a bath is believed to be an especially good way of stopping itching in places that tend to absorb a lot of water - such as the penis. (It's also good for itchy underarms, by the way.)

While a man may enjoy fondling his member, he usually wants to do it for pleasure, not because he has an irritated, itchy penis. In addition to bathing, a man can fight common penis itchiness through the regular use of a superior penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil). Essential in the selection of the right cream is its moisturizing capability: one that includes a double combination of moisturizers, such as shea butter and vitamin E, is best. It also is beneficial if the chosen cream includes vitamin D, often referred to as a "miracle" vitamin because it is so good at fighting diseases and enabling cell functionality.
