Men's health and hygiene

Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and hygiene


Avatar n tn Lack of aeration and irritation because of smegma and discharge surrounding the glans penis causes inflammation and edema. More common in uncircumcised males. It is usually caused by poor hygiene in uncircumcised men. The inflammation can be due to infection, harsh soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing. One common organism associated with balanitis is yeast known as Candida albicans.
Avatar m tn No change and after taken off I was already bed/couch ridden with very little energy. Then I began a quest to research this myself and found like most that all hygiene products have 3 to 20 or more chemicals a challenged liver cant deal with. Changed all those products to near nat. as possible, then began to seek natural supplyments and having them all approved before by my Dr. before taking. Including a change in diet, this has gotten me up and going for over 8 years.
1002520 tn?1251582386 In my observation, women can discuss sexuality and sexual health issues much more openly than men (That might be why we are called MEN… not women or gays. DUH!)" So does that mean guys avoid the subject altogether? Not exactly. "Certainly men think about it, but women verbalize it." (But… do women want their men to become women? I’m sure they don’t… feminine problems mandate their acceptance to indignities when it comes to their health… men don’t, and haven’t… DUH!
202436 tn?1326477933 Judge orders circumcision ban off SF ballot. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A judge on Thursday struck a measure from the city's November ballot that called for a ban on most circumcisions of male children, saying the proposed law violates the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of religious freedom and a California law that makes regulating medical procedures a function of the state, not cities.
Avatar n tn I totally agree with you about Men's Hygiene , i think it's what you are used to doing , Myself i wash hand's after every visit but Shower Daily Please don't worry about it , Take care
Avatar f tn I have received emails from his teachers expressing their concerns about his hygiene and remarks being made by his classmates. My husband isn't home alot due to his job which has him travel alot. So it leaves these talks to me. Would it be harsh if I started taking his time away on the Xbox and computer, until he starts taking care of his personal hygiene?
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar m tn Men usually have open shower bays. It creates all types of nuerosis in boys. If you don't believe me check the men's health section sometimes. It is almost all questions that I am certain result from size or hygiene.
Avatar m tn I had never heard of this condition, maybe because I am a female and have never worked in Men's Health. Therefore I did hours of reading and research and came up with some interesting theories. As you apparently know this condition is notoriously difficult to treat. There are some theories that this has a physiological component. One of the treatments when nothing else seems to be effective is called "Skin Deep.
2132141 tn?1335681674 You having Group B strep does not mean you got it from your fiance, Group B can exist in both men's and women's digestive tracts and intestines, and sometimes it pops up and other times it does not. You could have had it for a long time, and also, you could give it to her and not the other way around. She should get tested for it.
Avatar f tn you take gel caps the ones you can open. you can get empty ones at the health food store or you can go buy so cheap vitamins and empty and refill. they come in different sizes but let us say the normal standard size. not to tiny and not to large. then you carefully fill them with boric acid. you can fill them all the way or half way. the reason is that half way you would insert vaginally all the way in as far as you can up 2x a day or once a day for the reallly filled capsules.
Avatar f tn I've tried every deodorant on the market, women's and men's. I've even tried clinical deodorants. I find the one that helps the best is the men's version of the classic deodorant Mitchum. Notice I said works the best, it's still not satisfactory. I also take more than one shower a day. I have tried many different soaps. I use a feminine body wash. I use special shampoos for my head and hair. I use baking soda, peroxide, and witch hazel to combat bacterias. I have tried essential oils.
Avatar n tn Hello, I read on another men's health site that these bumps are overactive sebaceous cysts because I had gotten one too about 2 weeks ago and it initially was very sore but the soreness went away on the base of my penis but the red/purple bump was still there. I am not and havent yet been sexually active so I ruled out STD's.
1395422 tn?1308019851 Just wanted to let you know, we chose to do it for religious reasons and for health reasons. My husband and I sat down and wrote out all the pros and cons. We took a week or two, talked to some family members and friends before we made our final decision and researched it quite a bit. With our first boy we didn't hesitate to have it done, but then we started to question whether it was really necessary when I was preggo with boy#2.
Avatar m tn also this really isn't a std related issue. I'd look for a forum for men's health or men's prostate/urethritis issues for better follow up. we help with getting a proper diagnosis and testing and something that's an issue for 10 years, isn't an issue for this forum.
Avatar n tn Some people have eyes that are not perfectly in the same plane, some people have crooked smiles, and in the case of sexually related areas, some women have one breast that is larger than the other or one nipple that is not perfectly in the center of one breast yet it is on the other, some men have one testicle that is larger than the other and some men's penises, in fact, MOST penises are not perfectly straight.
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar n tn It was a way to manipulate and control women! For men's pleasure! And 2out of 5 girls would die from the procedure!
Avatar m tn If you want to be sure, wait a while longer to see if any symptoms arise and avoid unprotected sex. You can also go get tested for Gono and Chlamydia and NGU at this point if you're really worried. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
Avatar n tn Apparently it can happen if semen backs up into the prostate due to interrupted ejaculation, reverse gravity position, etc, and then hardens (could be hours to days later). They suggested over-hydrating and then "rubbing it out", but I usually just take a couple of Advil and sleep on my stomach.
Avatar n tn OMG!!!! I cannot believe what I'm reading! Are freakin crazy! I, and most guys and girls that I know - we love large labia! Love it, love it, love it! As a matter of fact - It's almost a must-have. It's so damned sexy and hott. It makes for great sex. Girl's please don't let any guy tell you otherwise. If you're young and inexperienced, please wait! You'll soon realize that you have a Diamond, and young guys are sometimes just intimidated - afraid that they don't know what to do with it.
Avatar n tn When I put tissue paper to the affect area, there's blood but not period blood, just dabs of blood and its always worst when i urinate.. Help me out..I've never had any health issue, esp in that lower area..I'm over 21 and am still a virgin and don't do drugs nor do I drink or smoke..So, I'm confused and scared and I CAN'T afford to see a doctor, not if i want to go into debt..Help!!
Avatar f tn I am lethargic, have aches and pains in the lower back and abdominal cramping. I am very conscious of hygiene and am worried. I am so tired all the time. Is this normal for someone with a prolapsed bladder? My GP had no answers.
Avatar n tn I know this is a really embarrassing topic for women; and that so many of us are living with it and no solution only cements that fact. Let me clear up a few things here: 1) The most pivotal piece of information here, as mentioned by one smart mama above, is what the actual smell is~ different odors signify different issues. So it is important that you confirm the unfortunate odor fits with the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Sorry, I forgot to mention that I was also on Diflucan to prevent yeast infection during this 2 weeks of Clinamax. GOOD LUCK! Don't forget to google desquamative inflammatory vaginitis.
Avatar n tn Seriously, what guy wants a mouth full of perfume when he does the deed. Men's penises have a smell too and can really be offensive if they don't bathe, especially if uncircumcised! PS make sure you drink enough fluid during the day or your urine can become concentrated and really smell bad too, which can leave an odor after going to the toilet.
Avatar f tn I had upper and lower jaw surgery 3 years ago and my health has never been the same. I was given 4 plates and screws in the mandible and maxilla and got the same story about the bioavailability of titanium, but I question it. I have done some moderate research over the last few months and I found one excellent study about a very small percentage of patients having significant health systems since receiving Ti implants.
Avatar n tn I have the same foul odor problem after my fiance ejaculates inside of me. I shower and have very good hygiene. If he ejaculates inside of me, it doesn't smell until the next day, but the smell is strong and actually disgusts me. It is definitely not my natural smell, so I thought it must have came from his sperm. Glad to know others have this experience. I am in my late 20s...why hasn't anyone ever talked about this to me? Why have I never read about this in Cosmo?
Avatar n tn // To start, look at the treatments listed, but don't forget to look through the prevention page as well since these tips are also useful in conquering this troublesome issue. It is important to stay clean and dry, wear loose clothing (especially underwear), and to treat both partners thoroughly.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
