Could an Itchy Member Be a Sign of Diabetes?by John Dugan Owner
There are so many potential reasons for an itchy member. Most of
those reasons are easily solved – for instance, itchy skin caused by a dry
manhood can be remedied with regular use of a male organ health crème. However,
if the skin is constantly dry and itchy no matter what a man does, and the
usual suspects like psoriasis, eczema or an allergic reaction have been ruled
out, it might pay to take a look at other medical issues that might be causing
the issue. Diabetes could be one of those reasons.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes has become a serious epidemic in the United States and
many other countries. There are two types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Those
with type 1 diabetes can’t produce their own insulin, which is a hormone that
keeps blood sugar levels under control. Type 2 is made up of those who do
produce insulin, but perhaps not enough to make up for their needs. Diabetes can
lead to high levels of blood sugar, which in turn leads to many physical
One of the most common problems encountered with diabetes is dry
skin. That’s why a dry manhood might become a cause for looking deeper into the
diabetes connection. But diabetes can also cause other problems for the male
organ skin, such as:
- Yeast infections. Though any man can
wind up with a yeast infection, those who have diabetes are especially prone to
it. The symptoms include swelling and redness, a white or yellowish discharge,
and dry, itchy member skin that doesn’t seem to get
better with any amount of moisturizing. One yeast infection can be treated with
over the counter remedies; however, recurring infections might be a sign that a
man has diabetes.
- Fungal skin infections. Issues such as
jock itch can become quite serious. The redness, scaly appearance and itchy
member that often accompany it might be very hard to treat with the usual over
the counter remedies. Fungal skin infections that keep occurring no matter what
a man does to prevent them are a sign he needs to have his blood sugar checked.
- Bacterial infections. Diabetes does
quiet work behind the scenes to suppress the immune system, which means
infections are much more likely to take hold. Though this often happens with
areas that are used quite often, such as the hands or the feet, infections can
also take hold in the male organ skin and surrounding area. A painful condition
known as carbuncles can lead to swelling, itching and even pain; antibiotics
are a necessary treatment.
- Circulation issues. Poor blood flow can
lead to a whole host of conditions, including – but not limited to – hardness
dysfunction. Diabetes can lead to issues with the circulatory system, and thus
men might experience a tingling sensation in their extremities, dry skin
everywhere, and even an itchy member as a result.
- Male organ rash. Men who have diabetes,
especially Type 1, might experience small, hard, yellowish bumps on their skin.
These bumps often have a red ring around them. Known as eruptive xanthomatosis,
these bumps often occur on the hands, feet and arms, but they can show up
elsewhere, such as on the dry manhood skin. These bumps are quite itchy, and so
can be bothersome in day-to-day life. Again, the best treatment is keeping
blood sugar levels under control.
Dealing with the Dry, Itchy member
Diabetes is a serious condition that can sneak up on anyone, so
it’s important to know the symptoms and get regular checkups that include blood
sugar monitoring. For the dry, itchy member, a man can reach for a good male
organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically
proven safe and mild for skin). It’s highly beneficial whether he is suffering
from diabetes or not. The crème should contain ingredients like Shea butter and
vitamin E, both of which are great for keeping skin very hydrated, smooth and
