The lighting is romantic, the mood is atmospheric, the clothing is peeled off – and then a potential bedmate asks, “What is that on your member?” Yes, male organ rash strikes again, destroying another near-perfect evening. Often, a male organ rash results from only a minor male organ health issue, such as a reaction to medication, and would cause no harm to anyone else coming in contact with it. But in other cases, a male organ rash can be a sign of something like a social disease. One of the lesser-known social diseases that causes a male organ rash is called Bowenoid papulosis.

About Bowenoid papulosis

Named in 1977 in honor of American dermatologist John Templeton Bowen, Bowenoid papulosis is a rare social disease that is thought to be caused by a particular type of the human papillomavirus (HPV). If a person has sensual activity with a person with HPV and catches this strain of HPV, then they are likely to develop a rash – on the male organ if a man, on the female organ if a woman. (HPV is also the culprit behind midsection warts.) In men, the rash may appear on the head of the member, the shaft, ...
... or the hood; it sometimes also occurs in the back.

There can also be other causes of Bowenoid papulosis. For example, some other viruses may cause it. People with weakened immune systems are more likely to contract this disorder. It is not at all uncommon for Bowenoid papulosis to occur in conjunction with or following the acquisition of HPV, herpes simplex, HIV, or viral warts.

The male organ rash caused by Bowenoid papulosis is generally made up of reddish-brown or flesh-colored lesions. They are small, raised (like bumps), and solid. Some people have described their feel as “velvety.”

Although Bowenoid papulosis is a partner-transmitted infection, due to its method of transmission, it is generally considered a benign one; that is, it’s a rash., it may have an unpleasant appearance and may itch on occasion, but it doesn’t usually get worse than that. The exception is when, as happens only rarely, it becomes what is known as Bowen’s Disease. This is a precancerous skin growth that can progress to being cancerous, a situation that must be avoided.


In most cases, Bowenoid papulosis resolves of its own accord in a few weeks or months; however, because it is linked to HPV, it is possible for it to recur throughout a person’s life. In some cases, there are no recurrences, where in others they may be frequent.

In mild cases, a topical cream called 5-Fluorouracil has been effective in treating this rash. More stubborn cases may require surgical intervention, via electro surgery, cryosurgery, or laser surgery.

Because it can be transmitted sensually, men with Bowenoid papulosis should avoid sensual activity until the rash has cleared up. If they do not wish to avoid sensual activity, any partners should be informed of the risk, and latex protection should be used to cut down on (though not eliminate) the chance of spreading the infection.

Bowenoid papulosis is a rare and unusual male organ rash, but all such rashes do a number on delicate male organ skin. That’s one reason a man should apply on a daily basis a top-notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Male organ rashes tend to exacerbate other skin issues, so choosing a crème that contains both a high-end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E) is key. The better crèmes will also include vitamin C, a key component of collagen (a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity) that is also necessary for proper blood flow.
