Male organ ulcers - sores that can pop up on the manhood - are both painful and unsightly. And understandably, they often cause a man to panic. The presence of manhood ulcers may denote a serious male organ health issue, such as a social infection, but they can be caused by other things as well, such as Behcet’s disease.
About male organ ulcers
Ulcers are more often associated with body parts other than the male member. For example, many people are familiar with the mouth ulcers that accompany many colds and viruses, and stomach ulcers are often the subject of considerable discussion.
But male organ ulcers do exist and are classified as a dermatological issue. These open sores cause concern, as they tend to be associated with the presence of a social disease, such as syphilis or herpes. But they can also be caused by other things, such as tuberculosis or a reaction to some antibiotic treatments.
About Behcet’s disease
A condition known as Behcet’s disease may also bring about male organ ulcers. Behcet’s disease (sometimes called Behcet’s syndrome) is named after a Turkish doctor who first detailed it back in 1937.
Behcet’s disease is classified as an autoimmune disorder, meaning that the body’s immune system mistakenly perceives something in the body itself to be an "enemy" and attacks it. In the case of Behcet’s syndrome, the result is an inflammation of the body’s blood vessels, which over time can damage them.
Behcet’s disease is accompanied by numerous symptoms, including ulcers that may appear in the mouth or on the male organ area. Other symptoms include eye irritation, skin lesions, joint pain, headaches, loss of appetite, lethargy, fever and digestion issues.
There is a great deal scientists don’t know about Behcet’s disease. It is fairly rare, affecting about 20,000 people in the United States, and so little is known about what causes it. There are several theories, including:
- Genes. Many doctors believe there is a genetic component for the condition which may make some people more likely to contract it than others.
- Virus or bacteria. There is also some evidence that a virus or certain bacteria can trigger Behcet’s in an individual.
- Environmental. The area in which a person resides and its specific environmental characteristics may include triggers - but just what those may be have not yet been positively identified.
Fortunately, Behcet’s is not contagious, so it is not passed on by direct contact between people. However, men who develop male organ ulcers due to Behcet’s are likely to want to avoid sensual activity during the period in which they are present (typically 1-3 weeks), for a couple of reasons. The ulcers are likely to remind partners of a social disease, so their presence may affect a mate’s comfort level where coupling is concerned. Perhaps more importantly, the male organ ulcers are typically accompanied by a fairly significant degree of pain - and the friction associated with coupling is likely to irritate them further.
There is no cure for Behcet’s, which is chronic and tends to "come and go," so treatment involves alleviating symptoms. Corticosteroids, anti-inflammatory drugs, and immunosuppressants may be used.
Once the male organ ulcers from Behcet’s disease have healed and are no longer open sores, a man needs to strengthen the health of his manhood by applying a first class male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil,which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Make sure the crème includes vitamin A, well-known for its antibacterial properties. Ulcers often add to an already-existing manhood odor issue, and vitamin A is uniquely qualified to help stem that odor emergency. Scarring may result from ulcers, so a crème that can rehydrate the skin through a high-end emollient like Shea butter and natural moisturizers like vitamin E is needed.
