What’s Causes Dry patches on the male
organ and How to Cope
It starts innocently enough, a little bit of dry skin. Maybe it gets a little red.
No biggie. Once a man notices, he moisturizes. As it doesn’t get better, he
calls in the Badger Balm, thinking maybe the dry patches on the male organ
need something more powerful. Then it persists and keeps persisting. Soon,
it becomes an obsession an gets most of his attention. All out panic breaks
out; could it be an PTI? Could it be cancer? Thoughts begin to whirl out of
First, take a breath. Next, let’s run down all the possible reasons for seeing
dry patches on the male organ.
Diagnosis #1: Dry Skin
It seems like a too small diagnosis for such a big worry. Most times a doctor
will take a look and establish that it’s just what it looks like, dry skin. It’s
likely he’ll give out a stronger ointment for healing (ask for samples
instead!) and say to come back if it’s not cleared up in a few weeks.
Diagnosis #2: Allergies aka Contact Dermatitis
Those dry patches on the skin could be set off by a foreign agent that rubbed
up against or was slathered on the goods. It could be anything from body
wash to laundry detergent to a partner’s body lotion. Latex latex barriers
may also be to blame. Twenty percent of intimately active people have an
allergic reaction to latex barriers. If experiencing a runny nose, wheezing, or
sneezing, it may be to blame. Wash the member gently, but thoroughly,
apply a very neutral and natural moisturizer appropriate for the member, and
maybe take some Benadryl if the symptoms are too much to handle. Also,
think back and figure out what it was that caused the dry patches. See a
doctor for an allergy panel if needed.
Diagnosis #3: Jock Itch
If dry patches on the male organ are accompanied by a bright red, itchy rash
where the legs meet the private area, it’s a possibility it’s Jock itch. It’s
highly contagious and can sometimes take a while to clear up on its own.
Sometimes a doctor will prescribe a powerful antifungal cream. Switch to
regular boxers for a while (no boxer briefs, sorry) to air out the area, and use
a medicated powder, like Gold Bond, to keep the area dry throughout the
Diagnosis #4: Psoriasis
If a man sees a dry patch on his member that may be looking a little yellow
and bleeds when scratched, psoriasis may be to blame. He also may notice
similar patches on the elbows, knees, belly button, or scalp. Some people
suggest that swimming in salt water can clear it up. If he doesn’t have a salt
water pool at home or a nearby ocean, usually a hydrocortisone cream will
clear it up. If it persists like a champ, get a script for a topical steroid or a
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory cream.
Diagnosis #5: Skin or Genital Cancer
Admittedly, this is the scariest diagnosis of the five, but is successfully
treated if caught early. When dry patches on the male organ persist, it’s best
to see a doc (or start there). If medicated ointments don’t work (see
diagnosis #1), a trip to the dermatologist is usually the next step and they
will likely prescribe a stronger cream and a follow up appointment. If the
dry patches on the male organ stand their ground, it’s time for a biopsy. The
results may come back as superficial skin cancer which means it is Stage 0
for genital cancer in most cases unless there is other symptomology. The
doctor will determine the treatment plan at that time.
Dry patches on the male organ caused by dry skin, allergies, or jock itch can
be helped by a specially formulated male organ health creme (health
professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically
proven safe and mild for skin) which provides moisture and antibacterial
protection. The best crèmes start with an all-natural base, like Shea butter,
that is appropriate for delicate genital skin. They also include vitamins such
as A, B, D, and E, which provide healthy cellular function, skin turnover,
and shields against foreign invaders like bacteria and fungus.
