Penile Health: Penis Pain, Infections, Injury & Inflammation
Inflammation is a sign of infection, injury or irritation. When a part of the body is inflamed, it becomes tender, sore, red, and sometimes swollen. It may also itch. Just about any part of the body can become infected. The penis is no exception to the rule. However, many men may be too embarrassed to seek proper doctor care when this happens. In penile inflammation, either the head of the penis or the entire penis can be affected. If the penis is not circumcised, the condition can happen under the foreskin. This can make it difficult or impossible to pull the foreskin back. In an infection, pus or fluid may come from the opening at the tip of the penis or from underneath the foreskin. These symptoms can affect the functionality of your penis and cause great discomfort and pain. Although it may seem embarrassing, penile inflammation is a common occurrence, and your doctor can help. There are many different reasons for penile inflammation.
— gonorrhea sexually transmitted disease (STD).
— yeast infection, also called candidiasis (STD)
— Genital herpes (STD)
— “The Clap” chlamydia infection (STD)
— urinary tract infection
— allergic reaction
— masturbation injury
In most cases, the cause of the penis inflammation is an infection. Once the infection is diagnosed, it can be treated, usually with an antibiotic. Remember that trying to ignore an infection will just make it worse. It will not go away by itself.

Penile inflammation can also be due to irritation or allergic reactions caused by:

— new, unwashed fabrics
— chemicals in laundry detergent
— the latex in condoms or the chemicals in spermicides
There are now condoms made from thin polyurethane that may cause no reaction. Be sure to check ingredients before purchasing spermicides or lubricants – a condom-compatible, non-allergenic lubricant to use is VigRX Oil, which offer the added benefit of enhancing pleasurable sensation.
Good hygiene and the use of condoms during sexual activity will prevent most cases. Bacterial infections are easily picked up during unprotected anal sex.
Do not let embarrassment prevent you from getting care. Remember that your healthcare provider treats infections and inflammations of all kinds on a daily basis. His or her job is to treat you, not to judge you.
