Sometimes maintaining good male organ health can lead a man to some confusion about whether some aspect of his member indicates a problem or not. For example, searching through menâ€™s health sites, one often learns that a red male organ can be a sign of a problem, such as an infection. Thatâ€™s definitely true, but itâ€™s also important to remember that not every red male organ achieves that coloration due to infection. In many instances, a red male organ may be the result of a healthy circulation system â€“ and thatâ€™s a good thing.
The â€œbadâ€ red male organ
Self-diagnosing can be tricky â€“ which is why consulting a doctor about male organ health concerns is advised. Very often when â€œred male organâ€ is listed as negative, itâ€™s referring to a redness which is fairly limited in scope. For example, when balanitis is the cause of redness (almost exclusively in uncircumcised men), itâ€™s generally localized in the head and top of the prepuce. In other instances, the redness may refer to a splotchy rash, which may have any number of causes, and which is generally not a consistent, even redness throughout the manhood.
There can be instances when a member is basically a deep red throughout the organ that indicates a problem â€“ such as a member which has received a sunburn after a day at the nude beach â€“ but more often, when the redness affects the entire manhood, it may in fact be a sign of good health.
The healthy red male organ
Why is that? Because in such instances, the redness is generally occurring during tumescence and is due to good circulation pumping blood throughout the manhood.
As most men know, itâ€™s blood flow to the member that is largely responsible for the physical act of tumescence. (Arousal and stimulation may help to set up the circumstances for the tumescence, but itâ€™s a rush of blood that actually creates the hardening of the organ.)
How much blood does the manhood capture during tumescence? As much as eight times the amount of blood that it uses when the organ is flaccid. Thatâ€™s why it is so important to keep male organ blood vessels healthy and able to expand fully, so that when the time comes, an adequate supply of blood can fill the member and make an impressive tumescence possible.
And itâ€™s that entrapment of blood which causes the manhood in fair-skinned men to achieve a healthy red glow. (In darker-skinned men, the hue is less often red but there is still typically some change in coloration.) Male organ skin is very thin, so the presence of blood is visibly represented by a reddening of the manhood.
And overall health
So a guy wants to have good male organ circulation in order for his tumescences to be firm. But itâ€™s also worth noting that a red male organ from healthy circulation often means is a sign that a gutâ€™s overall circulatory health is probably pretty good. (There can be exceptions.) By the same token, if tumescences are weak due to circulation problems, it may be a sign that a manâ€™s overall circulatory health may be under par â€“ and should be checked out by a doctor.
Good circulation can be indicated by a red male organ â€“ but in some cases a red male organ may also come about when the organ has been rubbed raw due to overuse or unlubricated use. Applying a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help provide relief. The best creme for this will offer a combination of moisturizers, such as a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a natural hydrating agent (like vitamin E). The moisturization helps heal rawness, and the presence of a potent antioxidant (alpha lipoic acid is an excellent one) helps strengthen the male organ skin against future damage by fighting excess free radicals that weaken the skin.
