Post-void dribbling is typically a sign of bad habits during urination. While there are circumstances where dribbling is outside the control of the man, such as post-surgery, you haven't indicated a known cause.
Let's assume briefly that your husband has bad toilet habits. If your husband is not following the correct method of urination, he may have always or over time developed a problem with post-void dribbling. This is not normal.
When terminating urination, it is essential to bear down, as if to pass gas, and NOT to clench. By clenching, he terminates the urine flow before it has finished, and some amount is trapped in his urethra and can leak out after he relaxes or moves. Secondly, any barrier to his penis, such as the waistband of his underwear, is a problem. Many men pull down the top of their waistband or have pressure from the fly of their pants and create restricted access to urinating freely. This over-the-fence pressure also traps urine and leads to dribbling. His penis must be free of pressure when urinating, even if it requires unbuckling pants and pulling underwear down more fully. Lastly, if he resists the urge to urinate when he feels he has to go, particularly if he waits too long, sits on his foot, or holds it in, this also leads to damage of the musculature that controls flow, sometimes also damaging the valves that regulate control. This is bad behavior and he should always go when his body gives him the signal, instead of waiting.
After a couple months of re-training with the proper urination technique, post-void dribbling should stop.
If his dribbling is the result of surgery (such as TURP), then discuss it with his urologist, and ignore what I just said above.View Thread
Cecete, Itch is often a signal of healing, particularly in skin. It may take several weeks or even months to notice a significant change in lymph channel inflammation. What you're watching for is that it doesn't get worse. There's no predicting how quickly it will get better.View Thread
Alcohol, no direct effect. Exercising, YES! When you jiggle unnecessarily, you're adding strain to your penis. This has already been covered in earlier discussion. No jumping, running, or anything extra that makes your penis bounce up and down or rubs on the area (or requires support in that area). If it's an activity that requires changing clothes for freedom of movement, take it off the list, it's too rough. Biking, jogging, lifting weights, swimming, situps, dancing, skating, climbing, etc. all no-no's.View Thread
You should be able to retract your foreskin and wash every day. This is how you know that unpleasant germs aren't growing. Outside this issue, I'm sure anyone in contact with your penis will appreciate that you wash it daily, whether it seems clean or not. Most people cannot detect their own state of cleanliness as someone else in proximity. You become somewhat immune to smells and sensations that you deal with daily, like wearing a ring, or a beard. Other people are much more sensitive when it comes to not washing your hair, reapplying deodorant instead of taking a shower, and things that may not bother you personally.
Handling for washing is considered necessary, like urination. Just be gentle and be done with it.
If the skin is inflamed and preventing retraction of your foreskin, you should receive medical attention, perhaps a steroid cream to reduce the inflammation.
There are some risks to using steroid creams in your genital area, so this is a discussion to have with your urologist and to take with some caution, if it is deemed appropriate for your specific circumstances.View Thread
No. There's no reason to try to stop naturally occurring erectile responses. A typical body is going to get 7-15 erections a day whether you want it to or not.
No. And I don't recommend sexual stimulation of any kind, because as much as you're thinking you're avoiding affecting the area, you're not. It's all interconnected. So while you can't stop the erectile response that happens on its own, you CAN stop causing them on purpose, and avoid those.
Just leave it alone entirely except to pee, please.View Thread
vipink, You will not cause cancer by breaking the structures of the penis. You have however, probably permanently broken the structures of your penis through a dangerous technique, and there may not be any treatment for it.
If there is hope, you need to see a urologist right away. When corrective measures can be taken, they can only be taken very early. This is not the same as lymphangitis. You have probably broken the blood vessel or blood containment system/structures in your penis, possibly leading to permanent damage. The technique you describe, sometimes referred to as jelqing, is extremely risky, and relies on the hope that you do not exceed your body's ability to repair itself when you purposefully damage your penis.View Thread
An_253786, I don't know where you've read anything about the cream. It's not covered in medical texts. And blood spotting is NOT normal. That would be concerning to me. The cream lasts for 6-8 hours. If you're using it once a day, this may not be sufficient. It has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as the benefit of stimulating your body's natural healing processes. But, the penis is a unique structure, and the cream can only accelerate what would naturally occur, if it helps at all. It is not a treatment. There is no "treatment" for lymphangitis.
It is not something you should attempt to move the lymph manually or through jumping. Your penis is a dead-end path, not like other parts of your body where massage and jumping and muscle action move the fluids. This is why lymphangitis in the penis is complicated.
There is always lymph in the channels. The problems occur when the channel walls become inflamed and restrict the flow of the fluid or trap it.View Thread
