The penis is truly a remarkable organ. It is the only organ that we depend on to alter its shape, size, and constitution in a matter of nanoseconds. We ask a lot of the penis, but we rarely spend any time caring for its well being.
Error: This is required. Error: Not a valid value. Maintaining good hygiene and care of your genitals reduces the chances of developing problems like skin irritations and some common infections.
The penis, the outer reproductive organ of the male, consists of 2 parts—the shaft and the glans. The glans is the tip of the penis, while the shaft is the main part of the penis. All boys are born with a foreskin, or a covering over the tip of the penis.
It is important to look after your child's penis and foreskin to keep it healthy and prevent redness, pain and infection. The foreskin is the loose skin covering the head glans of the penis. The foreskin cannot be retracted pulled back from the head of the penis in most newborns, but over time the foreskin separates and is able to be retracted. Most young boys will frequently touch or play with their penis.
In an uncircumcised penis, a fold of skin foreskin covers the head of the penis. If your baby isn't circumcised, simply wash his penis with nonirritating soap and water during each bath. There's no need to use cotton swabs or special cleansers.
It's important to keep your son's penis clean whether he has been circumcised or not. Keeping your young son's penis clean may help prevent infections and other problems. As your son gets older, teach him how to wash and care for his penis.
If you chose to have your son circumcisedthe procedure probably has been performed in the hospital on the second or third day after birth, but may be done after discharge during the first week of life. Ritual circumcisions for religious reasons are usually performed in the second week of life. Afterward, a light dressing such as gauze with petroleum jelly will have been placed over the head of the penis.
When most people think about penis health, they think about sexually transmitted infections STIs and erectile dysfunction ED. While these conditions can certainly affect the health of your penis, penile health is about so much more than that. There are many different things that can affect the health of your penis, including your hygiene practices, lifestyle changes, and any underlying health conditions.
The penis has 2 parts—the shaft and the glans. The shaft is the main part of the penis. The glans is the tip of the penis.
We explain how to improve your penis' health by cleaning it properly, steering clear of STIs and trimming it carefully. The British are a nation of stoics, often too proud to admit we have a problem, and too polite to bother anyone else about it. Men are particularly bad at piping up about health issues, especially when it comes to our penises.
