The possible causes of manhood bumps appear to be endless Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Nets Jersey
, so much so that even an expert in member health matters may not know all of them. Take, for example, syringomas. Most men would be forgiven for never having even heard of these little guys, let alone not recognizing them as the cause of anxiety about manhood bumps. So with that in mind, here’s a little information about syringomas.
What they are
According to Wikipedia, syringomas are “harmless eccrine sweat ducts.” (Eccrine Nik Stauskas Nets Jersey
, by the way, means that something is multicellular and retains its cytoplasm when it secretes fluid.) They are typically 1 to 3 mm in diameter, which is pretty small – an inch has about 25 millimeters in it. They tend to be skin-colored or yellowish, round in shape and pretty firm, not a squishy bump.
Although syringomas are more often found in women, men do get them as well. The most common location for them is the eyelid or nearby on the face Julius Erving Nets Jersey
, but they often show up on the neck, chest, scalp, stomach and, of course, the member. When on the manhood Jeremy Lin Nets Jersey
, the shaft is favored but the head can sometimes present them as well.
Syringomas usually appear in clusters, as few as two or as many as a dozen or more.
Fortunately, syringomas are essentially benign. Often a person is unaware he has them until he spots them – and that may happen after they have been there for a long while, especially because they tend to blend into the skin, color-wise. However, some syringomas – those known as “plaque types” – can cause itchiness or irritation.
While syringomas themselves are benign and usually painless Jarrett Allen Nets Jersey
, they sometimes show up in conjunction with other conditions or disorders. For example, syringomas are often found in a person with Hailey-Hailey disease, a genetic disorder that causes painful skin blisters. Fortunately, the syringomas and blisters associated with Hailey-Hailey disease rarely appear on the member.
People with diabetes mellitus may also develop syringomas, although again they tend to occur elsewhere than on the male organ. With this form of syringoma, the bumps tend to be clearer and contain glycogen Jahlil Okafor Nets Jersey
, a kind of sugar.
Syringomas are also frequently found in individuals with Down syndrome, as well as in people with several rare genetic disorders.
Because syringomas are benign, most doctors do not recommend treatment; in addition, several forms tend to come and go, so a man may experience these manhood bumps only rarely.
When treatment is required, most therapies focus on removing the bumps themselves rather than on treating the cause Drazen Petrovic Nets Jersey
, which is difficult to determine. Among the removal methods used are surgical excision, carbon dioxide lasers, and chemical peels. Sometimes topical approaches using retinoids or atropine are tried.
When the syringoma causes itchiness or tenderness, lotions or crèmes are frequently suggested to provide relief.
Whether caused by syringomas or other factors, manhood bumps often cause irritation or itchiness for a man. Frequent topical application of a top drawer member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help provide some relief. The itchiness and tenderness is often related to dry or unhealthy skin DeMarre Carroll Nets Jersey
, so be sure to select a crème that packs plenty of moisturizing punch. One with both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E) should do the trick. Oxidative stress also affects male organ skin, making it more prone to irritation. Therefore, a crème with a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid is needed. Alpha lipoic acid fights the free radicals that cause oxidative stress.
Philippine authorities ordered a criminal investigation Monday into a shopping mall fire that authorities said likely killed 37 people, including call centre staff from an American firm.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre announced the inquiry as firemen prepared to enter what remained of the NCCC mall in the southern city of Davao where they hope to retrieve those who perished in Saturday's blaze.
The fire compounded the Christmas misery in the south of the mainly Catholic nation where tens of thousands were also displaced by floods and landslides from a storm that also killed more than 200 others on Friday.
"The loss of lives and the resulting damage... underscore the need to determine if someone is at fault and should be held criminally liable," Aguirre said in a statement.
"By punishing those responsible, we can set an example to others so that D'Angelo Russell Nets Jersey
, hopefully, there will be no repetition of those tragedies," he added.
Deadly blazes occur regularly in the Philippines, particularly in slum areas where there are virtually no fire safety standards.
Relatives of the missing said many of those still unaccounted for were staff from a call centre for the US-based market research company SSI that occupied the building's top floor.
Local authorities on Sunday said no-one trapped in the fire would have survived but firemen have only managed to retrieve one unidentified body so far.
