Of late, the topic of penis bleaching has been doing the rounds, especially among the men who are concerned about the appearance of their penis. Although it is relatively rare, often light skinned men find it odd that the color of their penis differs so widely from their skin color.
Penis bleaching might sound simple, but many medical experts advice against it as the procedure can affect one’s penis health negatively, if not done properly.
Let us first understand why the penis is of the different color in some men.
While in some men, there is no stark difference between the color of the penis and the skin, in others, the color of the former is substantially darker. What is the reason?
Firstly, the skin covering the penis is thinner as compared to the skin covering most parts of the men’s bodies. Secondly, blood flow is the main phenomenon in a penis, especially during the erection; the process of erection includes fast inflow and trapping of blood. The thinness of the penis skin determines the amount of blood that is visible, rendering it a brownish, reddish or purplish tinge, making its color much different from the surrounding skin.
What are the bleaching materials used for the penis
“Bleaching” the penis does not actually involve using the bleach. The chlorine contained in the bleach is a whitening chemical, used to lighten the fabrics. It is harsh and should not be used on the skin. On the other hand, there are bleaches with peroxide that are not as harsh as the former. However, use of the either on the skin can cause damage and pain.
One should always consult a doctor before using any kind of penis lightening ingredient. A professional help in managing the entire process is recommended. Having said that, natural ingredients are best to be used for bleaching the penis as they are mild and normally does not cause serious skin irritation.
Before searching for home solutions of remedies which could cause pain if applied in correctly, one should refer to creams or other treatments that have been tested and are safe to use on such a sensitive area.
