How do you remove urine odor from skin down there?

How do you remove urine odor from skin down there?

Hygiene: If you are talking about usual urine odor that is present in some folks, I would suggest to exercise proper hygiene, to begin with. After each urine passage, you will need to wipe yourself from front to back, either using a wet hand or toilet tissue. If it is still the problem after you've done it, you will need to use more water (get in the shower) and rinse whatever remnants of urine are hiding. ...Read more

My 1.5yr old son poured dettol liquid over his body we washed only after 4-5 hrs. Later we found swollen, brown, burnt skin around urine organ.

Chemical burn: Dettol is just a brand name — not sure which liquid it was, a topical body wash or a stronger disinfectant for the household. Regardless, it sounds like he has a chemical burn of the skin in the area you describe. Flush area hourly with clear, cool water. Make sure he is able to urinate ok. If skin starts to break down, peel, smell or drainage, then needs to see doctor immediately for burn care. ...Read more

Normal variation...: We are not born equal — likewise in any parts of body with no exception for the penis. What you described about your penis is real to reflect having inborn short and tight penile suspensory ligament, which is clinically considered as a normal variation which requires no practical need for surgical correction. In reality, learning to adopt and adapt to whatever the life might have brought to you. ...Read more

10month old has a temp of 39.4, very unsettled, sleepy, diarrhoea, mottled skin, not passing much urine and not taking his bottles. What could this be?

10month old has a temp of 39.4, very unsettled, sleepy, diarrhoea, mottled skin, not passing much urine and not taking his bottles. What could this be?

It could be ER time: It could be time to see his doctor right now, or visit the hospital ER which takes care of young children. A baby with diarrhea who has mottled skin and has little urine means he may be dehydrated. If he is too sleepy and not taking his bottles, he may be getting weaker and cannot rehydrate himself orally... which is bad. Thus, time is of the essence. 103 fever means there is likely an infection. ...Read more

How to get rid of frog fugus hair in the head and face? Soft hair is growing from the places that was touched with frog urine.

How to get rid of frog fugus hair in the head and face? Soft hair is growing from the places that was touched with frog urine.

Oh : Oh my. I think I am stumped. There are studies in ireland regarding the skin secretions of the waxy monkey frog and the giant firebellied toad and angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels). I am familiar with bufotoxin since one of our dogs had a run in with a bufo toad (not in the us). I have heard tales about toads causing warts if handled. But, I have never heard of frog urine causing growth of fine hair on the face. If you don't mind me asking, why did you have frog urine on your face?
Maybe another doctor will respond to your question who is familiar with this. In the mean time, I am left wondering if this is a myth and that possibly you grew more aware of pre-existing hair growth after application of frog urine? I am sorry that I can't be more help. ...Read more

New hair growth: I don't know why you would get new hair growing on your skin after touching a frog, or frog urine, and I think that you are mistaken. Even if the frog or its urine had some germ, like a fungus or a bacterium, touching it could not possibly cause hair to grow. What you see is likely not hair, and you should go to your doctor for a checkup. ...Read more

Hi doctors. My penis gland have a chap skin. It is dry and its look like an old man skin. I don't feel any different and my urine is fine.

Dry Skin in Penis: It can be due to dermatitis or eczema skin. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. Hydrocortisone as dermacort), while more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid. But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a physician. Moisturizers such as cerave cream are helpful. ...Read more
