A daily rinse with cool water, when the sheath is completely retracted, should be enough to cleanse away bacteria. No soaps, powders or deodorants are required, and often, these sorts of ingredients can irritate male skin, so they should be avoided altogether.
Using a male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) could also be beneficial. The moisturizing agents in these products can keep skin soft, so fewer dead cells accumulate to feed hidden bacteria. The vitamins in products like this can also nourish the disease-busting cells that line the male organ, which may help them to fight off invaders. A daily application might be one great way to keep the sheath healthy and free of pain.
