Are you suffering from penis acne or penis pimples? If your answer is yes, then first of all make this thing clear that it not because of a sexually transmitted disease. In most case it is perfectly normal. I know it is extremely embarrassing. The most common reason of experiencing penis pimples is consumption of fatty foods and excessive sweating. Sometimes the underlying cause is the lack of hygiene.
There are many things that can be done for getting rid of penis acne. Generally it goes away at its own. Sometimes the change in the diet is the most important part of the cure. The first step in the diet change is switching to plain drinking water. Drinking plenty of plain drinking water helps to flush away the toxins from the body. Juices are good but caffeinated drinks like coffee worsen the condition. It is also important to cut the amount of processed and fatty foods. You must substitute these fatty and oily snacks like chips with dried fruits and rice cake.
Another reason of getting caught by penis acne is “underwear”. Tight fitted undergarments cause the area to sweat more. This triggers the outbreak of acne. Loose fitted underwear and breathable cotton is best as it can draw excessive moisture from the area. Try using baby powder in crotch area. (If you are not circumcised keep it away from your foreskin.)
You can try using some antibiotic cream on your penis pimple but never try the one that you have been using for your facial acne. Generally facial crèmes have alcohol in it; this may irritate the penis and genital area. Only use antibiotic cream with greatest care and only on the exact spot. Never try to pop or squeeze the pimple. It only worsens the situation.
