Itchy Penis from Masturbation

By: J Dugan


It’s very hard to be cool and chill when an itchy penis is demanding some attention and scratching. Unfortunately, the occasional itchy penis is something all guys have to deal with - although simply by paying proper attention basic rules for penis health and hygiene, most men can cut down significantly on the need to scratch. While most guys know about itchy penis causes like eczema or scabies, it’s surprising that a lot of men don’t realize that in some situations, that urge to itch can come about due to that perennial popular pastime known as masturbation.

How can engaging in a little otherwise-harmless masturbation bring about that itch in the penis? There can be several ways, such as:

- Not using lubricant. Often, a guy will enjoy self-stimulation without the benefit of lubrication. If all that is involved is a quickie with a few strokes bringing an aroused member quickly to ejaculation, that’s less likely to be a problem. But if the stroking continues for any real length of time, the lack of lubricant is likely to create a raw skin situation, which in turn can easily lead to itchiness in the aftermath of the masturbation.

- Using the wrong lubricant. So using a lubricant is a good idea - but for some guys, not all lubricants are created equal. Every person is made differently, and there are some men who may have an allergic reaction to a specific lubricant. So if a dude notices an intense itching or rashing after masturbating with a specific lube, he should try different ones to see if the itch is related to the chosen lube.

- Using a non-lubricant as a lubricant. Sometimes a dude can be really anxious to self-gratify, but may not be able to get his hands on a typical lubricant - and may make do with something else at hand (e.g., shaving cream, dishwashing liquid, etc.). Delicate penis skin may not respond well to a DIY lubricant, with an itchy penis one possible result.

- Masturbating with dermatologically unsafe hands. When a guy is really excited, he may not be able to keep his hands off himself - even when he really should. Masturbating if his hands are covered in eczema or another dermatological reaction runs the risk of transferring the issue to the penis - and creating a rashy, itchy situation on the manhood.

- Not washing after masturbation. Especially when masturbating in bed, some men neglect to wash away stray ejaculate from the penis. In some cases, this can lead to bacteria being attracted to the penis, which can often lead to scratching.

- Masturbating near (or among) plants. For men who have pollen or other plant-based allergies, masturbating near plants - even those of the indoor variety - can cause allergens to land upon the penis, with predictable results.

- Neglecting to clean the mouse. It’s not unheard of for a man to masturbate while surfing the internet looking for appropriate visual stimulation. Often the hand that manipulates the mouse will then be used to touch his penis - and if the mouse has not been cleaned, he runs the risk of bringing potential allergens or irritants from the mouse to the penis.

Most of these masturbation-related itchy penis causes can be addressed through using the proper lubricant or practicing sensible hygiene. But when an itch does occur, it often pays to make use of a reliable penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Since dry or damaged penis skin often causes the itching, select a crème that can re-moisturize the penis via hydrating agents like Shea butter and vitamin E. The crème should also include alpha lipoic acid, as this potent antioxidant can protect against free radical damage that weakens and mars penis skin.
