Itching in the intimate area

What causes itching in the male intimate area?

Sensitive Skin Factors

The skin in the intimate area is more sensitive and prone to irritation due to its delicate nature. Additionally, with humidity and sweat, it is an area prone to the growth of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms.

Itching can be the result of a reaction to inappropriate hygiene products , tight clothing, or even excess humidity.

As far as hygiene is concerned, only use a sulfate-free men's intimate soap .

The regular use of a very aggressive hygiene product can be the cause of irritation and annoying itching.

Fungal infections

A fungal infection can be a cause of itching in the male intimate area. These organisms thrive in warm, humid environments, and can cause intense itching, redness, and rashes.

If you have these symptoms, go to the doctor immediately to prescribe an anti-fungal cream or ointment for the intimate area .

Again, it is essential that your intimate area is clean before applying any cream or ointment .

Wash your intimate area with an intimate gel for men that is natural and respectful for your skin like our Downstairs Fresh .

Bacterial Imbalance

The imbalance of the natural microbiota in the male intimate area can lead to skin irritation and redness. This can occur due to the use of:

  • Generic shower gels with pH mismatched to the man's intimate area .
  • Soaps with sulfates or agents that are too aggressive for men's intimate areas.
  • Intimate soaps for men that contain sulfates or other ingredients that are too aggressive for a man's intimate area.

Allergic reactions

Contact of the intimate area with irritating substances or allergens present in soaps and intimate gels that contain these synthetic and aggressive substances could trigger an allergic reaction, causing itching and redness.

For this reason, we recommend that you only use a 100% natural intimate soap , which does not contain petroleum derivatives (such as paraffins or silicone oils), or controversial preservatives (such as parabens, triclosan, phenoxyethanol...), or synthetic perfumes with phthalates, etc

Only use an intimate soap formulated for men that is certified as a 100% natural and ecological product like our Downstairs Fresh .

How to Treat and Prevent Itching in the Intimate Area

Below you will find 4 tips to avoid itching in the intimate area :

  1. Proper Hygiene
  2. Breathable Underwear
  3. Avoid Scratching
  4. Use of an intimate hygiene gel and natural lubricant


1. Proper Hygiene

Wash your intimate area with an intimate hygiene gel designed specifically for men , as this ensures that you use a product with the appropriate pH, avoiding an imbalance of the bacterial flora.

Also, make sure your intimate gel is natural and does not contain ingredients that are too aggressive for your intimate area.

2. Breathable Underwear

Opt for breathable cotton underwear instead of synthetic materials.

This helps keep the area dry and reduces the accumulation of moisture that could be the cause of the proliferation of bacteria, responsible for bad odors in the intimate area, as well as annoying itching.

3. Avoid Scratching

Although it may be tempting, scratching only makes the irritation worse. Keep nails short to avoid possible injuries, and wear loose-fitting underwear to reduce friction.

4. Use an Intimate Gel for men and a Natural Lubricant

In the same way that you usually use a specific hair shampoo in your shower, you should also use a specific gel for the male intimate area .

This way you ensure that you use a product with the appropriate pH that will be more respectful for your skin.

Consider using a natural lubricant in your intimate relationships. This will reduce friction that can be the cause of irritation and itching, in addition to achieving more pleasant relationships.

5. Consult a Professional

If the itching persists or worsens, it is crucial to consult a dermatologist or doctor so that they can diagnose any underlying problem and recommend specific treatment.

In any case, remember to perform good intimate hygiene with an appropriate product before applying any cream or ointment, whatever its purpose.


Facing itching in the intimate area can be uncomfortable, but you are not alone in this experience.

Whether the causes are irritations, infections or allergies, remember to always maintain good intimate hygiene with an intimate soap formulated especially for men .

This intimate gel will help you prevent future discomfort by maintaining a healthy balance in the skin.

Remember that taking care of your intimate area with the right product is an essential step towards long-lasting comfort and well-being.


Hola Brayan, puedes rasurarte la parte íntima perfectamente. De hecho, el rasurado de la parte íntima te ayudará a prevenir malos olores y mantener una buena higiene. De todas formas, cuando el pelo nace, es más duro y es posible que ello te cause una irritación y picores. Por eso es importante, usar un gel de higiene íntima, que sea lo más respetuoso posible, para mantener la barrera de protección natural de tu piel, como nuestro Downstairs Fresh. Así evitarás picores indeseados.


Saludos, actualmente tengo mucho picor y sudoración en los genitales. Me hago limpieza todos los días y me cambio la ropa interior. Uso interiores de algodón, pero la picazón sigue. Alguna pomada que me ayude a solventar este problema- Gracias por su atención.

Estaría bien si me depilo o rasuro la parte íntima?


Buenas tardes, me
gustara saber el nombre del picor del pene y con bolitas blancas dentro.
Muchas gracias
