A Red Male Organ Sometimes Means Red Sacks Syndrome

A red male organ can be caused by a range of factors, including balanitis, jock itch and plain old irritation from friction. There is another cause, fortunately rare, that men may need to consider, the aptly-named red sacks syndrome. Even men who regularly practice exemplary male organ care may find themselves with this unpleasant condition.

What it is

Red sacks syndrome, sometimes called burning sacks syndrome, is a chronic disease which tends to affect men over 50 -- although it has been found in men of much younger ages as well. When a man has red sacks syndrome, his sacks (and usually the base of the manhood) turn a vivid shade of red. The redness is not usually accompanied by scaliness, but it is usually associated with a burning sensation. The burning feeling can at times be very intense.

In addition, the sacks and affected parts of the member became quite tender to the touch. Sensitivity is heightened, often to a painful degree.

Red sacks syndrome is classified as a form of erythromelalgia (also called Mitchell’s disease), which is a vascular pain disorder in which blood vessels become blocked, causing swelling and inflammation.


Red sacks syndrome produces a significant degree of discomfort in its victims. In addition to the burning and tenderness, many men experience severe itchiness in the area. Because of the tenderness, scratching the itch can cause pain. Persistent scratching may in turn lead to skin peeling.

In some instances, the burning and tenderness are such that the touch of fabric against the affected area can be painful. Whether clothed or bare, sitting can be uncomfortable, as the sacks rub against the man’s legs or the chair, and many men with the condition need to sit near the front of a seat so that the sacks can hang over and not touch anything.

While the red male organ issue associated with the condition tends to be contained to the base of the member, in some cases the redness does spread throughout the manhood. This also causes significant issues, due to burning, itching and tenderness.

Men with red sacks syndrome often find their sensual lives diminished, especially when the condition presents on large portions of the manhood. The friction on the member associated with sensual activity can be too painful for many; in turn, the movement of the sacks during coupling and its contact with other body parts also results in a higher degree of pain.


What causes red sacks syndrome? Doctors really aren’t sure. Some factors which may be involved in triggering this condition include the use of topical corticosteroids, fungal or bacterial infections, and socially-transmitted infections.

With so little information on the causes, doctors are also in the dark on other issues, such as why it tends to occur more often in men over 50. Some believe that it may have something to do with hormonal changes due to aging, but there is lack of research to investigate this possibility.

Because the cause is unknown, some doctors recommend that a man with this condition refrain from partner-based sensual activity.


Doctors tend to treat the symptoms through familiar methods such as mild soaps and detergents, anti-fungal medications and proper hygiene. In some cases, doxycycline may be recommended.

When red sacks syndrome includes the presence of an unnaturally red male organ, men can find some relief by regularly using a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) on the member itself. A crème that already helps to relive normal manhood itching is advised; those that promote moisturizing are best. If the crème contains both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and one of nature’s best hydrators (such as vitamin E), relief from itching is likely. It’s also wise to choose a crème with vitamin D, known widely as a "miracle vitamin." The overall health benefits associated with vitamin D can improve the general health of the manhood, making it more likely to withstand dermatological issues.
