Summer Male Organ Syndrome: An Itchy Red Manhood Situation

With hot weather here, it’s time for guys to get outside and enjoy the summer. It also means some guys may come down with an itchy red manhood problem, perhaps despite their best efforts at controlling their member health in the proper fashion. While sometimes that red male organ may be caused by sunburn obtained by frequenting a clothing optional beach, in other cases it may be what is called Summer Male Organ Syndrome.

Summer Male Organ Syndrome

Sometimes called “Lion’s Mane Male Organ” and scientifically described as seasonal acute hypersensitivity reaction, Summer Male Organ Syndrome is classified as a pediatric condition; however, there are limited cases of the condition occurring in adolescent and adult males as well.

So what is Summer Male Organ Syndrome? It typically is marked by a very swollen and very red male organ and/or sacks. It also is usually accompanied by an intense need to scratch. Sometimes the condition lasts only for a day or two, but in other cases it may go on for two to three weeks.

What causes this itchy, swollen red male organ? In almost all cases, it is caused by being bitten by a chigger on the manhood or sacks.


A chigger is a tiny little red bug (sometimes called a red mite or a harvest mite), usually too small to really be seen without a magnifying glass. They are arachnids, meaning members of the same family as spiders. They have tiny claws that enable them to dip into the skin of a person and really hang on. When they bite, their saliva enters a person’s body and kills skin cells, which the chigger then feeds off of. This causes the redness, swelling and itchy associated with Summer Male Organ Syndrome.

Chiggers live outdoors and are all over the woods and fields that people roam through during the summer months. Since people tend to be dressed in shorts and short-sleeved shirts in the summer, the chiggers can easily access the skin they desire. They will crawl on a person until they find an area that seems right to them – thus, it’s easy for a chigger to get on a guy’s leg, crawl onto his member and bite down.


As stated, most times Summer Male Organ Syndrome occurs in young boys rather than in men. It is presumed that something in the maturation process, perhaps the release of male hormone in copious amounts, somehow prevents chigger bites on the male organ from developing into an itchy red manhood.

However, while adult cases are rare, they do occur, and men who experience an itchy red manhood after spending time outdoors should consider that a chigger may be responsible.


The condition often resolves itself after a day or two, but some cases can persist much longer. Consulting a doctor is advised. The doctor will most likely recommend some mild treatment, typically in the form of an antihistamine and cold compresses.

There can be other causes for an itchy red manhood than Summer Male Organ Syndrome, such as dry skin. Regular application of a first rate member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help deal with many common manhood skin issues. Itchiness, redness and flakiness are less likely to occur if the skin is well moisturized, so using a crème that includes a combination of a high-end emollient (like Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) is suggested. The skin will also be healthier if a crème contains a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid. This helps fight the oxidative stress that can early on age and wrinkle manhood skin.
