For even the most no-fuss type of guy, there is no denying that a little TLC can go a long way toward keeping the manhood up and running, and many guys turn to ordinary hand lotions for this purpose. However, while many moisturizing skin care products may be designed to soothe itchy, dry skin and improve its overall appearance, these often contain fragrances and other chemicals that can be too rough for the delicate male tissue. Here, a male organ health cream can be man’s best friend where male organ protection and treating minor problems is concerned. A male organ cream is different than other types of lotions and emollients that are available for general use, because it is designed with the specific requirements of the manhood in mind.
Here are just a few of the issues that can be addressed by adding a daily male organ nutrient formula to the male personal care regimen.

Dry skin – One of the most common complaints that men have about their manhood skin is that it is dry, rough, and dull-looking. This is no surprise, considering that the male organ is subject to some aggressive handling as a result of manual stroking, intimacy, or just the daily wear and tear that comes from rubbing up against clothing. Dry skin can be more than just unattractive, though; when the skin is lacking in moisture, it tends to develop microscopic tears that can allow bacteria or fungal spores to penetrate, increasing the chances of uncomfortable infection. Dry skin is also more likely to become sore and raw-looking following intimacy.
Raw, red male organ skin - The manhood skin is fairly resilient, but at the same time, it is subject to a lot of pressure, not to mention exposure to body fluids, lubricants and other substances that a man might rub on for one reason or another. All of these factors can lead to sore male organ skin that appears red, chafed and unhealthy. Keeping the area well-hydrated and nourished is a good way to speed healing and to boost the skin’s inherent ability to repair itself.
Cracks/fissures in the skin’s surface – Fungal infections like thrush (yeast infection), skin allergies, or too much self-pleasuring can all cause the manhood skin to become cracked and rough.
Friction-related injuries¬ – Skin that is dehydrated can lose its natural lubricating ability, increasing the likelihood that a friction-related injury may occur during intimacy. When the male organ is unable to slide freely against a surface, it can bend or twist, leading to torsion injury of the underlying connective tissue. Almost all men can use a little extra help when it comes to moisturizing the skin and increasing its innate protective properties.
Acne and folliculitis¬ – Most men can expect to develop acne on the male organ at some point, and folliculitis (inflamed, infected hair follicles) is also common in this area. While acne creams are not recommended for use on the manhood skin, a cream containing vitamin A that is gentle enough for the male organ can help to combat this issue.
