Do i have allergies?please replys is needed!!
How about not using any soap...just water? In the future, when everything calms down, you can try and unscented hypoallergenic soap, but I'm not sure that soap is actually necessary.
so just cleaning my penis with water is fine??it is sure to get rid of the smell and all..and no need for water?
I can't give you first-hand advice, but one pro-intactness Web site gives these instructions:
1.) Gently pull the foreskin back.
2.) Rinse with warm water only. Soap under the foreskin can cause irritation and swelling.
3.) Pull the foreskin back in place over the head of your penis.
Some people say it's OK to use a mild soap. If you're concerned about an allergy, I'd give the soap a rest until everything clears up. Then you might try a mild, hypoallergenic soap. I find that Dove soap for sensitive skin doesn't seem to bother my sensitive areas, but you have to find what works for you.
> ..and no need for water?
I assume you meant "soap". I don't know, but I'd give water alone a try. If it works, then you should be all set. If not, then you can think about soap.
If you just use water to wash it you will have to wash it for longer and more vigerous to stop it smelling etc.
