The penis and scrotum can fall victim to various health problems like infections and disorders. So, in order to protect them, simply follow these tips, which promise to improve your sex drive, fertility and ensure comfort.
Wash the penis daily with soap and water by retracting the foreskin, if you are an uncircumcised male. Failure to do so can lead to infections, inflammations and even tumours.
Ejaculation is a great way to maintain urological health. In men between the ages of 20-50, regular ejaculation helps maintain sexual health by exercising the prostate gland.
In our humid and hot climate, it is essential to be well hydrated. Drink plenty of water everyday, to reduce the chance of forming kidney stones.
Dry your genitals
It is important to keep the genitals dry, whether it is after a shower or on a hot sweaty day. Moisture encourages growth of bacteria, which can result in infections.
Grooming pubic hair
Trimming pubic hair will help increase hygiene, reduce moisture in the groin area and improve your sexual experience with your partner
Regularly check your genitals for lumps or discharge, during a shower. In addition, a regular medical check up will help control problems like STDs or testicular cancer.
