Fabry Disease May Produce Penis Bumps

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, September 13, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Penis health should be a top priority for men, especially as it doesn’t require a great deal of effort. For example, men already handle their penises at least a few times a day, when they are urinating (or, of course, when masturbating). As long as the hand is already on the penis, it makes sense to give the penis a health check, provided one is alone. When doing a check, look for something unusual – such as penis bumps, perhaps. Most men already know whether any penis bumps they possess ...

Hives Could Be the Cause of Penis Bumps

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, August 9, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Lots of men have penis bumps that adorn their manhood with little or no repercussions. For example, Fordyce spots are quite common, and these benign bumps that present no penis health concerns are often so lightly colored that many people don’t even see them.

And if they itch or cause other inconveniences, they become a nuisance at best. Hives...

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, July 22, 2019, In : Men's Health 

When a man unveils his penis for a partner, he wants to be met with an appreciative “Wow!” rather than an inquisitive “Hmmm….what are those?” Yes, penis bumps can mar the attractiveness of even the most manly penis – not to mention can put a partner’s mind to wandering over penis health and what they know about symptoms of sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) and whether those penis bumps mean they should develop a headache and slip out early.

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, January 17, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Manscaping – shaving the hair on and around the penis and balls has become much more common in recent years. Some men like to manscape for purely aesthetic reasons, as they (or their partners) believe it makes their penis look even better. Some men get into manscaping for more practical reasons.

Who wants to unveil their pride and joy – whether to a new potential sex partner or to the guys hanging around the gym locker room – and have people see that their manhood is covered with penis bumps?

Penis Bumps? Look Into Purpura as Cause

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Although penis skin is generally smooth, penis bumps are not uncommon. Sometimes they can be pale and hard to see, which is often the case with benign Fordyce spots. Other times they may be large and obvious, as is often the case with hives or warts. And although they are harmless, sometimes they can be a signal that something is not right, which is why searching for and examining penis bumps is part of a good penis care strategy. One potential cause to add to the list is purpura, a fairly c...

Penis bumps can be caused by many different factors and, depending on what the root cause is, may signify something serious.

When Penis Bumps Are Due to Hives

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, September 8, 2017, In : Men's Health 

One of the primary reasons a man should be concerned about good penis health is that he wants his equipment to make a good impression when it is unveiled for the gaze (and appreciation) of a partner, especially a new one. When a man has a healthy penis, it presents a more imposing and impressive picture, pleasing the partner and giving the possessor of that penis extra confidence and pride.
