How often does a man feel an itch in his groin and discover, upon examination, that he has a penile rash? Unfortunately, it happens more often than most men would want to admit. While the rash can sometimes be associated with a serious penile health issue such as an infection or STI, there can be other causes as well. One of the more common, especially during the hot summer months, is the eruption of those who bathe in the sea.
The hot days of summer naturally inspire people to spend some time on the beach, surf and tan on the sand. Naturally, people have to take precautions against common “dangers” like sunburn, but there are some problems that are difficult to protect – and sea swimmer’s eruption is one of them.
A swimmer’s eruption is a rash that occurs on covered areas of the body when a person goes swimming. In other words, not on the exposed skin, but on the area covered by a swimsuit (and/or shirt if wearing a shirt in the water) – and that means the penis is high. List of possible explosion sites.
The eruption is caused by stings from “thimble” jellyfish and sea anemones that have not grown but are still in the larval stage. These larvae are very small – less than a centimeter – and therefore difficult to see. Stings usually don’t start until a person is out of the water. The evaporation process may initiate stinging, and if not removed, the larvae may remain dormant and not hurt for several days. The sting sites produce a rash that can be very itchy. In some cases, the condition may result in fatigue and/or fever.
Other than avoiding swimming, there are really no effective measures for the eruption of swimmers. Because the larvae are so small, their presence in water is difficult to detect. They swim close to the surface, so swimmers are more at risk than scuba divers.
To treat the eruption, it is best to remove the swimsuit as soon as possible. Rinsing with fresh water actually tends to irritate stings, so if you have a bucket of clean, larva-free sea water that a person can use to first rinse the affected area, this can be helpful. This can then be followed by a fresh water shower to cleanse the body more properly.
Rubbing the affected area with a towel also causes irritation and can worsen penile rash. Instead, an affected person should try to dry the body with a towel.
After cleansing, it’s fine to apply rubbing alcohol or diluted vinegar to the rash. Hydrocortisone or calamine lotion may also be helpful in relieving itching. If the rash is severe, especially the symptoms may be fever, malaise, etc.
A doctor may suggest that a penile rash from the rash of a person bathing in the sea would benefit from keeping the skin moist. Daily use of premium penile health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, clinically proven to be mild and safe for the skin) This may be a good way to achieve this goal. The best creams aim for proper skin hydration through the use of ingredients like Shea butter (a top emollient) and vitamin E. These ingredients form a “moisture lock” that keeps the skin supple and healthy. It doesn’t hurt that the cream also contains vitamin D, the “miracle vitamin” known for fighting disease and promoting healthy cellular function. The healthier the penis in the first place, the more likely it is to resist penile eruptions and heal quickly.
