The solution to Penis odor

There have been a lot of questions about penis odor and a lot of bogus replies such as suggesting circumcision as a solution.

I have the solution to penis odor; it is simple and cheap.

I am not circumcised and have always noticed a bad smell even after washing. Now there is absolutely no smell. How? The smell is caused by bacteria. Washing removes some of the bacteria but doesn't kill it. You need an antibiotic for this. A common household antibiotic such as Neosporin that you may use on a small cut works well. I use a generic antibiotic from a local drugstore which works fine. After washing I apply a small amount all around the head. Doing this about once a week completely eliminates the odor. I don't get any adverse reaction to the antibiotic but if you try this, watch carefully to see that you don't get a rash, itching, etc.

Re: The solution to Penis odor

I would like to second this. I apply neosporin once a week or maybe even less (only when I notice the smell coming back a bit) around and under the foreskin (uncircumcised) and it completely gets rid of the bad odors. I don't wash the penis with soap but I make sure I dry it really good after showering.

I tried a lot of things before this, mostly anti-fungal because i thought it was some sort of fungal infection. This is the only thing that worked for me.

I read that neosporin can cause irritations for some people so make sure you're not one of them first.

been doing this for a month now, if it comes back i'll update.

I'm using Tea Tree as part of my PPP regiment, and the smell has gone away (but replaced with the tree tea smell). I will try NeoSporin once a week like you guys say as well.
