There can be many reasons for dry skin on penis. Dry penis skin on its own is usually not a cause for concern and tends to be easily treatable.
It is though important to get the condition formally diagnosed, as penis dry skin can be indication of more serious problems and the consequences could be serious if left untreated.
Likely Causes For Dry Penis Skin
Penis dry skin is quite common and can happen to men at any age. It is usually the penis shaft or penis head that is dry, but dry testicle skin or scrotum are also well known.
The penis skin is sensitive and can easily become sore and dry, e.g. rubbing the penis against clothing during foreplay, or not using lubrication when masturbating, can cause the penis to become dry and sore.
In many cases, dry skin on penis is caused by how we treat our penis skin on daily basis, i.e. before, during, and after sexual intercourse and masturbation. This is usually easy to treat, e.g. by moisturizing, wearing loose fitted underwear, and resting the penis until the condition has improved.
When To Get Worried Over Dry Penis Skin
As we have seen, the most common causes for dry skin on penis are not serious and easily treatable. It is still important to treat dry penis skin, as if left untreated it can result in more serious issues.
Usually moisturizing, wearing loose fitted underwear, and abstaining from sexual activities for few days will clear your dry skin condition. If you suffer from skin allergy or penis skin condition, then you might need some prescribed medication to help you get over it.
However, if the dry skin on penis does not heal and if it starts to spread or you have other penis problems, then you might suffer from some more serious condition, like STD or penis cancer. 1
