First thing’s first—dry skin on your willie is rarely a sign of an STD.
But that doesn’t make it any more comfortable. And you don’t want to be that guy repositioning his junk every 2 minutes… trust us, people notice.
So, what do you do to relieve the dryness and nix the discomfort? Since you can’t exactly ask your buddies, we’re here to help.
Your Skin Is Dry Because It’s Irritated
The skin on your penis is incredibly thin and sensitive. Because of this, it doesn’t take much for it to become irritated.
Common causes of dry penis skin include:
- Dry sex
- Dry masturbation
- Tight-fitting clothing
- Harsh soaps
- Certain lotions or lubricants
- Laundry detergent or dryer sheets
- Latex allergy
How to Heal Dry Penis Skin for Good
The first three causes of dry, itchy penis skin—dry sex, dry masturbation, and tight-fitting clothing—cause chafing. The best solution isn’t a temporary fix, but targeting the cause.
Most guys need lube during sex and masturbation. And while it might seem like a good idea to buy the cheapest lube or just go with a large bottle of lotion, a bunch of these contain irritating chemicals.
Look for a water-based lube. Try it out for a week or two. If the dryness fades, you know what your problem was.
If you’re a fan of tight-fitting briefs and jeans, you’re going to have to decide what’s more important to you—your look or your feel. 100% cotton boxers are your best bet. And give your manhood some space to breathe in your pants.
The next three causes—harsh soap, certain lotions or lubricants, and laundry detergent/dryer sheets—all contain irritating compounds.
While it’s tempting to buy the cheapest household items you can find, there’s a reason for the all-natural and fragrance-free kick. Those cheaper goods aren’t good for you.
If you have sensitive skin, you need to use:
- Gentle, mild body soap
- Water-based lube
- Fragrance-free laundry detergent (and nix the dryer sheets all-together; you don’t need them)
- All-natural lotions (try Burt’s Bees) or coconut oil
The last two, coconut oil and natural lotions, can also be used to expedite the dryness healing process, no matter the cause.
Finally, there’s the potential of a latex allergy. Don’t think this is an excuse to not use a condom—very few men have a latex allergy. And a dry penis is almost never the only symptom.
People with latex allergies experience things like hives, runny nose, wheezing, and trouble breathing when they encounter any latex or 100% rubber product. This includes not only condoms, but latex doctor’s gloves, rubber bands, bandages, and balloons.
If you think you have a latex allergy, talk with your doctor to make sure you’re avoiding latex-containing products. And opt for a latex-free condom, such as those made from polyurethane or lamb’s intestines. Just keep in mind that lambskin condoms don’t protect against STDs, just pregnancy.
