What is Genital Psoriasis? Psoriasis is a condition in which skin cells
grow faster than normal, resulting in an accumulation of thick patches of skin or other skin abnormalities. The condition can affect specific regions
of the skin or it can be widespread all over the body. One localized category of the condition is
genital psoriasis, in which the excessive skin cells build up around the genital region. This form of psoriasis belongs to a category
of psoriasis known as inverse psoriasis. Inverse psoriasis occurs in skin folds and
also tends to affect the areas near the breasts and armpits, in addition to the genital area. This category is not as common as other forms
of psoriasis and has different symptoms. More common forms of psoriasis usually have
symptoms that include patches of hard, dry skin that itches, but the symptoms of genital
psoriasis and the other varieties of inverse psoriasis typically include smooth, puffy
red patches on the skin’s surface near the affected areas. Since moisture tends to accumulate in skin
folds where the condition occurs, the skin does not become dry or scaly like it does
with other forms of the condition. Genital psoriasis refers to any instances
of the condition that develop near the genital region. It may include the skin on the upper thighs,
the area above the genitals near the hipbones known as the pubis, and the crease between
the genitals and upper thighs. The buttocks and anus may also be affected
by the condition. In women, the condition can occur on the outer
labia, the thick folds of skin that cover the vagina; however, it does not develop near
the vulva or inside the vagina because the areas are covered with mucous membranes that
are not susceptible to the skin cell abnormalities. The shaft of the penis is the genital area
that is usually most affected by the condition in men. The causes of genital psoriasis are often
the result of a person being overweight or obese, and the friction of constant rubbing
or chafing of the genital area. Sweating can aggravate the condition and make
symptoms even worse. Visit the website. Click Below

    In my opinion, the best thing to use for dry skin down there is a creme called Man1 Man Oil. It contains several vitamins and nutrients that are especially beneficial to the penis skin. Just rub it into the skin once a day and it will stay moisturized, smooth and healthy. Think of it like hand creme for the penis. It's good stuff.

    I had red itchy patches combined with dry flaky skin. I've tried a hundred different skin products for this, Maximum Strength Cortizone 10 Hydrocortisone mixed with a little Clotrimazole is what worked for me, it's a 2 fold problem the psoriasis causes it to be hot in the area and then fungi can wreak havoc causing a second problem. The Hydrocortisone does most of the healing, very important that it contains this. Your situation may be different but this cleared everything up in a few days for me after battling it for months. I tried the man 1 oil but it didn't work for me, I came back to post this.
