Male Organ Bumps May Be from Manscaping

Male Organ Bumps May Be from
Manscaping – shaving the hair on and around the male organ and sacks has
become much more common in recent years. Some men like to manscape for
purely aesthetic reasons, as they (or their partners) believe it makes their
manhood look even better. Some men get into manscaping for more
practical reasons. For example, a partner may be object to giving oral
sensual activity because the hairs get in their mouth, or all of the hair may
make the midsection too hot, causing excess sweating and adding to member
odor. In general, manscaping has no male organ health issues, provided one
practices enough care with the razor. But in some cases, it may lead to male
organ bumps – in a roundabout way.
Why male organ bumps?
Why should shaving the thatch of hair on and around the male organ and
sacks bring about male organ bumps? There are a couple of reasons.
One, sometimes the skin is irritated by the shaving process or is allergic to
one or more of the shaving products used. In most cases or skin irritation,
keeping the skin moisturized will help the irritation to go away within a few
days – sometimes a few hours. The same is true of minor allergic reactions
to shaving products. If the reaction persists for several days, it’s a good idea
to see a doctor. Many people experience these reactions from their first go at
manscaping but don’t for subsequent shaves; others may find that these male
organ bumps come about each time they shave.
Two, often the bumps that result around the midsection from manscaping are
due to ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs can happen at any place on the body,
not just in the midsection. And while they can occur naturally, more
frequently they are the result of shaving.
After a hair has been shaved, it starts to grow again, usually poking onto the
skin and growing upwards. But sometimes the hair will start curling back
before it breaks through the surface and continue growing underneath the
skin. (This is more common with midsection hair, which tends to be coarse
and curly to begin with.)
As it grows beneath the skin, the body interprets it as a foreign object that
isn’t supposed to be there. Swelling, redness, itching and sometimes pain
result – and the combination of the hair growing underneath the surface and
the body’s response to it creates the male organ bumps.
Most of the time ingrown hairs resolve on their own, but if they are
persistent, a guy may need to do something about them. Dermatologists
recommend that the first step is to stop manscaping – at least in the area
where the bumps are occurring. Continuing to shave over ingrown hairs will
simply irritate the area.
A guy can also apply a warm compress to the area, which can soothe it and
also help pores to open up so an escape route may become available for the
hair. When the hair starts to peep out, use tweezers to grasp it and try to pull
more of the ingrown portion out into the open. Keep the area well
If the ingrown hair has become infected, a doctor may prescribe a steroid
cream or an antibiotic.
Male organ bumps from manscaping are an annoyance and can sometimes
cause itching and soreness. Regular use of a superior male organ health
creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is
clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help make a difference.
Selecting a crème with a combination of moisturizing agents, such as
vitamin E and shea butter, can help keep the skin properly hydrated, which
also diminishes itchiness and soreness in the area. The crème should also
include vitamin A, the properties of which can help to gently clear away
dead skin cells, better enabling ingrown hairs to break through the surface.
