Are Those Scabies on Your Member?: What They
Are and How to Treat Them
Any time a man sees a rash on his junk, it is cause for alarm, even if it’s not
a severe cause. However, how can a man tell whether he just has a harmless
rash or if it’s scabies on his member? Let’s look very closely–because
they’re microscopic–at what midsection scabies are, how to tell if you have
them, how to get rid of them, and then how to prevent them in the future.
Scabies on the Member: Definition and Symptoms
Scabies is a highly contagious, itchy rash on the member caused by
microscopic mites called Sarcoptes scabiei. The first major sign of infection
is intense itchiness in the midsection with small, pimply bumps that take up
residence around the entire reproductive area. This rash shows up in between
4 to 6 weeks after a man is infested with these itty-bitty bugs, which is how
long it takes them to bury into the skin and lay eggs. The rash is actually an
allergic reaction to the mites. They sometimes leave tracks on the skin where
they bury themselves.
Itching can worsen at night, and a man can also open himself up to
secondary infections if he scratches too much due to midsection scabies.
Scabies on the Member: Transmission and Diagnosis
Scabies is highly contagious. It is spread most often through skin-to-skin
contact, such as during sensual contact. A man can also get scabies if he
comes in contact with infected bedding and clothing, though this is much
less common.
To see if the rash is scabies on the member or if it is something else, see a
doctor as soon as possible. In addition to a physical exam, the doctor may
take a small skin sample to review under a microscope. If the doctor sees the
mites and eggs, it’s midsection scabies.

Scabies on the Member: Treatment
There are several ways your doctor may opt to treat midsection scabies. You
may be encouraged to take hot showers and baths each day. The doctor also
may prescribe a topical ointment or steroid cream in addition to antibiotics
or antihistamines to reduce the chances of infection and clear the midsection
scabies faster.
To stop scabies on the member from spreading, wash all towels, bedding,
and clothing in hot water that’s at least 122 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by
drying on high heat for no less than 10 minutes. Vacuum things that can’t be
washed, such as carpets and your mattress. Then be sure to clean the vacuum
with bleach after disposing of the bag (if your vacuum uses one) to kill any
leftover mites, as they can live up to 72 hours after leaving the body.
Of course, limit skin-to-skin contact and activities while healing.
Scabies on the Member: Prevention
The simplest way to prevent midsection scabies is to practice abstinence or
safe intimacy. Don’t share towels or clothing with others. If you see the
beginning of a rash, get it looked at fast to try to stop the spread.
Another way to prevent scabies is the practice of good member hygiene. Be
sure to wash the member thoroughly daily (multiples times if needed) with
warm water and a gentle cleanser. Rinse well and pat or air dry. Apply a
male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil,
which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) that has been
created expressly for delicate male member skin. Look for an oil with
vitamin A to protect against bacteria and infection, as well as other vitamins
and nutrients to fortify and calm irritated skin.
