5 Causes of Reddish Penis, from Balanitis to Frequency of Masturbation


Just like other body parts, the penis can also experience several problems, one of which is color change. Red penis skin or rash is one of the problems that can arise. Don't panic first, let's check the various causes below.

Conditions that make a penis red or a rash


If the penis has redness, don't just guess why. Understand each symptom and see a doctor if you are worried. Most likely, the penis becomes red because of the following conditions.

1. Balanitis



Balanitis is a condition when the penis head is swollen. This condition mostly occurs in uncircumcised men. Balanitis is usually caused by infection or chronic skin problems.

This condition is often caused by bacteria or fungi that thrive in the foreskin (head) of the penis. Especially for those of you who don't really pay attention to the cleanliness of the penis. In addition, balanitis can also be caused by irritation due to:


  • Do not rinse the soap cleanly from the penis while bathing.
  • Use fragrant soap to clean the penis.
  • Using soap that can make the penis dry.
  • Use a lotion or scented spray on the penis.

In addition, diabetes and venereal diseases such as syphilis, trichomonasis, and gonorrhea can also cause penis redness and swelling. The penis also feels itchy, sore, and the skin is like being attracted.

2. Tinea cruris



Tinea crusis is a fungal infection caused by clothing that is wet or damp due to sweat. Usually this condition is most common in athletes. However, this disease can also affect anyone, especially those who like to linger using clothes or damp pants.

People who experience tinea cruris usually experience redness, flaking skin, rashes, and burning sensation in the penis. In addition to attacking the penis, this condition can also affect the groin, thighs, and lower abdomen.

3. Contact dermatitis




Contact dermatitis is a condition caused by exposure to the skin to irritants (irritants). Usually contact dermatitis makes the penis itchy and red.

This irritation generally appears after you use certain soaps or skin care products that have never been tried before. In addition, this condition can also be caused by condoms triggered by chemicals in it.

4. Fungal infections




Fungal infections or also called candidiasis cause a red rash on the penis. Other symptoms that usually appear are itching and burning at the tip of the penis.

Fungal infections are generally caused by lack of hygiene of the penis. In addition, this condition can also be transmitted from couples who are experiencing vaginal yeast infections.

5. Masturbate too often




Masturbation is indeed healthy. However, another story if you do it too often. If you masturbate as much as 5 to 6 times a day for weeks, don't be surprised if the penis becomes irritated.

Dr. Seth Cohen, assistant lecturer in urology and gynecology at NYU Langone Health, United States, stated that irritation from masturbation too often usually makes the penis red, dry, and feels like being attracted.

Therefore, don't get too excited. Besides thinking about personal satisfaction, you also still have to pay attention to penis health.

If you already know the cause, then take action immediately. Keep the penis clean, wear sweat and absorb sweat pants, or see a doctor. The doctor can provide a diagnosis and treatment plan that is most appropriate for your condition.
