Is Male Organ Odor a Sign of a Medical Condition?
Rank and persistent male organ odor is an unfortunately common condition and often is due to improper attention to male organ care, particularly in the area of hygiene. However, sometimes a persistent male organ odor, especially one accompanied by urinary stench, may herald a medical condition which will need to be attended to.
If a man pays proper attention to his hygiene issues and still has a persistent male organ odor problem, it pays to bring this to the attention of his doctor. The doctor can then see if an underlying or co-existing medical condition may be the problem.
Some of the issues the doctor may investigate are:
– A social disease. A strong odor can sometimes be linked to a social disease, which will of course need to be seen to immediately. Among the social diseases for which member odor may be a “marker” are chlamydia and gonorrhea. Most of the time, male organ odor by itself is not a symptom of a social disease; it is much more likely to be found along with a discharge or with pain during urination. However, it is better to be safe than sorry.
– Anaerobic infection. Anaerobic infections are fairly rare in the male organ, but they do occasionally occur there. These infections are caused by a bacteria called an anaerobe, and it really only thrives in areas in which little or no oxygen is present. Some of the more popular conditions caused by anaerobes are gangrene, tetanus and botulism. If an anaerobic infection occurs in the member, it is likely to indicate that there is dead tissue in the organ, and that can be very serious indeed. Again and fortunately, such infections rarely occur in the manhood.
– Dehydration. Sometimes male organ odor results from a urinary condition, often from simple dehydration or lack of sufficient water. Often urine-related manhood odor is due to consumption of foods with a particularly strong odor. If the urine in which these foods are passed has a high water concentration, it can dilute the strong aroma more effectively. When a man has not consumed enough water, there is less water in the urine to act as a diluter, and therefore a stronger odor.
– Diabetes. When well managed, diabetes tends not to produce its own bodily odor issue. But poorly managed diabetes may result in excess glucose (sugar) intruding upon the urinary system. The excess sugar thickens the urine and also produces a sugary odor that sounds pleasant in theory but is actually quite off-putting in practice.
– A bladder condition. As part of the urinary system, issues that arise in the bladder can affect the urine content which can in turn produce male organ odor. An infection is the most common bladder issue of this sort, but sometimes a condition called a fistula may arise. This means that the bladder and the intestines develop an improper connection which produces a bacterial overflow. Fistulas often require surgery.
Because male organ odor can be a deal-breaker with many partners, men want to seek prompt attention for any medical condition that may be responsible for the issue. In addition, they should make it part of their daily health regimen to apply a first rate male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Not just any crème will do; first, be sure that the crème’s ingredients list includes vitamin A. Also called retinol, vitamin A has wonderful antibacterial properties that can attack some of the bacteria most often responsible for a strong member odor. It also pays to find a crème that contains alpha lipoic acid. As a potent antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid battles free radicals that can cause oxidative stress. By keeping free radicals away, manhood skin is stronger and more likely to resist odor-causing conditions.
