There are many reasons why a man may find bumps on his erection. However, if that ‘lump’ appears to be hard, less tender to the touch, and considerable, it may be a corn. Corns are a thickened and hardened part of the skin or soft tissue. They are yellow or pale in color. They feel bulky, but surprisingly they are not as sensitive to the touch as one might believe. They are often larger than bumps or skin marks and do not appear to have sharp edges. They are nothing to get excited about and can be easily dealt with (spoiler: time is the only remedy) and prevented.
Callus on the penis? Let’s talk about causes, treatment and prevention
There aren’t many ways to get a callus on your penis, but here are a few to keep in mind:
1) rubbing or friction – Whether due to sex or too tight pants, rubbing and friction can harden the skin and cause a corn. Runners are at high risk for corns as 10-mile mornings can equate to a long skin-to-skin or skin-to-spandex time.
Treatment and prevention: When a callus appears on the penis, a man cannot just “walk”. Unlike corns on the feet that can accumulate and remain functional, a penis callus requires a man to kneel in all activities adjacent to the penis until the skin peels off and disappears. For those who suffer from prolonged sexual ability, use lubricant and use moderation in the future. For others, carefully consider the fabrics that rub against the penis and make any necessary adjustments. Also, make sure there isn’t too much compression or constriction. Runners should also wear a product like Runner’s Glide anywhere on the body where friction occurs.
2) “Death Grip” – These calluses form specifically due to excessive masturbation. This affects uncircumcised men more than men cut due to the presence of the foreskin.
Treatment and prevention: Take some time off of your own pleasure and the corn will eventually fade on its own. Like, a good time off. Men suffering from Death Grip need to give the penis time and space (like a clingy girlfriend) to relax and return to stasis. Only then can a man hope to regain sensitivity (but be aware that some damage may be permanent). Make sure to use a lube in the future (off the shelf or something natural like coconut oil if you believe the Reddit ad). Also, practice moderation with your own pleasure.
3) Pressure – Men who put a lot of pressure on their penises (physically, not emotionally) can also be susceptible to calluses on the penis. Cyclists often experience a problem with this due to bike seats and long-distance walks. However, a man does not have to be an athlete to experience this; Men who spend long hours with a laptop on their lap can also find a callus on their penis as a result.
Treatment and prevention: As with the previous two treatments, time without contact with the penis is a crucial first step in getting rid of callus. For athletes and cyclists, consider both cycling clothing and equipment; maybe a padded seat or padded shorts can help. For laptop users, limit lap time and get yourself a laptop table.
Another tip for men with corns on their penis
While men have corns on their penis, in addition to preventing them, they can choose to use a specifically formulated penis health cream. (Health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically shown to be safe and gentle on the skin) to hydrate and soften the penis. Packed with effective vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, these creams protect against callus creators, such as peripheral nerve damage, and promote collagen production that leads to new, healthy skin. Shea butter and vitamin E base also provide a natural and nourishing environment for skin to heal and regain suppleness.
