How to Identify and Fix These Annoying Agitators
Ingrown hairs pop up everywhere. And why? Well, because most men have
hair erupting all over their bodies. While not limited to shave-only places,
ingrown hairs happen most often in areas where men shave. This includes
the pot of gold that is a man’s family jewels. An ingrown hair on the male
member is the exact same thing as it is on any other part of the body; it
happens when the tip of a hair curls and grows back into the skin or hair
follicle. This little hair can cause a painful, itchy bump to emerge.
Sometimes it can even fill up with pus when it gets infected. Less than
awesome, right? Let’s talk about ingrown hairs on the male member, from
how they happen to how to fix and prevent them.
Ingrown Hair on the Male Member: Symptoms
In this particular region, ingrown hairs can present as red bumps on the male
organ. They can show up anywhere in the area and are often painful to the
touch. They can resemble pimples or cysts. Some are pretty minor, while
others can fill with pus of many colors and ooze when irritated. If a man has
eagle-eye vision, he may be able to see the small semblance of the unruly
hair in it.
Ingrown Hair on the Male Member: Causes
Ingrown hairs on the male member can be caused in several ways. The
biggest reason would be, of course, shaving, but other things can cause these
red bumps on the male organ. Here are some things, besides shaving, that
can erupt these pesky buggers:
1. Dry skin – When the hair follicle is clogged up with dead skin cells,
the hair can’t grow straight and usually gets pushed sideways back
into the skin.
2. Thick and/or curly hair – Sorry, all of you dudes with massive manes.
3. Keratosis pilaris – Also known as chicken skin, this skin condition
causes excess keratin in the skin, which can turn into bumps and close
up hair follicles.
4. Shaving protocols – In addition to just shaving, doing it too much or
without the right prep and technique can also increase a man’s risk of
getting ingrown hairs on his male organ.
Ingrown Hair on the Male Member: Treatment
Most times, ingrown hairs take care of themselves. However, if you want
immediate relief, here are a few ways to help the hair emerge:
 Wash the area and your hands with antibacterial soap before touching
the parts to be shaved
 Use a warm compress to relax the follicle and try to coax the
offending hair closer to the surface of the bump
 Treat the area with an acne product made with only salicylic acid or
benzoyl peroxide, which will reduce swelling and encourage the
follicle to open up and free the hair
 Using a pair of tweezers or a pin (be sure to sterilize first), drain the
pus and guide the hair out of its shell, but don’t pull it all the way out
at the root
 Apply tea tree oil or antibacterial ointment to keep bacteria out
 If it itches, use a hydrocortisone ointment
 Don’t shave or wax the area until it is fully healed
Ingrown Hair on the Male Member: Big No-Nos!
Ingrown hairs can be itchy and irritating, and it’s natural to want to destroy
them. Here are things you DON’T want to do, however, or else you could
make matters worse:
 Don’t scratch
 Don’t pick or try to pop them
 Don’t wear tight underwear
 Dry off immediately after swimming, bathing, or sweating
Failing to obey that in the above list could lead to:
Bacterial infections
Fungal infections
Midsection boils
Swollen lymph nodes
Staph infection (specifically sycosis barbae)
Ingrown Hair on the Male Member: Prevention
There are many ways to avoid ingrown hairs on the male member. Start by
waxing or shaving the area less often, and when you do shave, be sure to do
so correctly and carefully. Always use a sharp blade and a shaving gel or oil.
Soften the hair by soaking it in warm water for at least 5 minutes. When
shaving, shave in the direction of hair growth, not against it. In between
shaves, be sure skin is gently exfoliated to remove dead skin. Use a product
like Tend Skin immediately after shaving or waxing to minimize ingrown
hairs. If you shave or wax a lot, consider investing in laser hair removal.
Finally, use a specially formulated male organ health oil (health
professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically
proven safe and mild for skin) to prevent ingrown hairs on the male
member. It has vitamins and nutrients that gently exfoliate the skin and keep
bacteria at bay. Use at least once per day for the best results.
