One of the most common urological problems in male is itchy penile head. It is very unpleasant to experience because of those inconveniences it triggers. In most cases, it’s being just a symptom of more serious disease. A patient becomes uneasy, shy and out of habitual daily life, while his state of health is worsening. The irritation occurs unexpectedly and causes a lot of discomfort.
The Main Reasons
To ascertain the source of unpleasant feelings is the first thing to do in case you confront this symptom. Frequently, the itchiness is entailed by the following deviations:
- Not keeping to the rules of personal hygiene;
- Too tight and uncomfortable underwear;
- Allergic reaction, redness and puffiness;
- Consuming too much spicy food;
- Vividly expressed nervous overstrain;
- Mucous membrane trauma;
- Intense sexual contact;
- Yeast infection;
- Chronic alcoholism;
- Significant overcooling.
Itchy penis head doesn’t necessarily mean the presence of some sort of illness. Sometimes it’s triggered by showering too seldom and not washing this organ deliberately. Acids contained in urine, sperm and vaginal liquids from the partner serve as the best place for infections to develop – staphylococcus and streptococcus are among them.
Sometimes the reason of crotch discomfort is as simple as wearing very skinny panties made from unnatural materials. Such underwear causes irritations, chafes and even sores. Moreover, you should always stick to tested and approved soaps for intimate hygiene, because they often are very aggressive, that hugely affects delicate penis skin, provoking allergic reaction.

That’s why pills don’t have to be taken without doctor supervision.

That happens because of corrected blood ingredients due to emotional changes.
