That Itchy Member May Come from Time in the Hot Tub By John Dugan

Summary

Relaxing in a hot tub – or having a sizzling time with a partner in one – can be fun. But men should be aware that an itchy member could result.

Full Content

Spending time in the hot tub can be an excellent way to relax and let sore muscles get the heat and jet-provided massaging action they crave. But what if a guy comes out of that hot tub with a regrettably itchy member? Unfortunately, this can sometimes be the case, and the condition can go even beyond male organ health, often creating an itchy rash all over the body. 

Hot tub fun 

Hot tubs have become a big part of the American social scene over the last few decades. Although hot tubs are often

used solely for “family friendly” recreational activity, they also have a reputation for being an especially rewarding place to have sensual activity. The stimulation provided by the pulsating jets of water, combined with the heat, can combine to make sensual activity in the hot tub irresistible. 

Unfortunately, unless properly and regularly cleaned, a hot tub can also become a breeding ground for bacteria. The hot water is very attractive to bacteria, and unless a proper amount of chlorine is added at appropriate times, bacteria can grow and get all over the skin of people in the tub. And ironically, the rash tends to be more prominent on and around the male organ, as wearing a swimsuit traps the bacteria against the skin more directly for a longer period of time. (Hot tubbing bare, however, does not totally protect against the rash; it merely means it may be less severe.) 

Hot tub folliculitis 

One of the more common causes of an itchy member (and of a rash in other parts of the body) is something called hot tub folliculitis (often called simply hot tub rash). This is an especially unattractive prickling rash; although it can be contracted from bacteria in any hot tub, it is more common in tubs made of wood. 

Hot tub folliculitis usually appears a few hours after using the tub, but there can be a delayed reaction, resulting in its appearance a few days after exposure to the bacteria. This rash tends to develop around hair follicles, as the bacteria nestles in at the root of the follicle and starts infecting the area. 

This rash strongly resembles chicken pox in its early days, although as it progresses it comes to resemble a field of pimples. Like chicken pox, hot tub folliculitis is extremely itchy; in some cases, people report it can be painful, often producing a burning or stinging feeling when aggravated. 

The good news is that the condition usually resolves itself within a week or two; the bad news is that it is uncomfortable and unattractive while it persists. That itchy member is not likely to get much pleasure while the rash is present. A rash that lasts beyond two weeks may need antibiotic treatment. 

Yeast, too

In some cases, a hot tub can also be a breeding ground for yeast. While yeast infections are more common in women than in men, they do occur on the manhood – and can produce a mighty itch. 

In order to reduce the chance of a hot tub-related itchy member, men need to be sure that the tub in question has been properly cleaned and disinfected. It also helps to limit the amount of time in the tub; longer exposure increases the risk of infection. Finally, showering after using the tub can help to displace bacteria. 

An itchy member, from a hot tub or from other sources, needs to be moisturized. Daily use of a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) with a combination of moisturizers is required. Look for one with both Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (a natural hydrator) for good results that keep the skin supple and smooth. It’s a plus if the crème also contains alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that fights oxidative stress, leaving manhood skin stronger and less prone to infection.
