Skin Infections and keeping it clean while stretching

Postby tundraman » June 4th, 2012, 10:32 pm

Almost all of us have gotten or will get a mystery rash under weights or leather. I'd like to prevent almost all of them. Do the easy stuff anyway, the rest is in the event you are having a problem.

Most of this is obvious but hygene has to change a little since the sack skin no longer lives in a dry climate with stretching.

Your anus is real close to your hang - Duh - not a real issue before stretching. Even a trace of feces will cause a rash, a skin infection or inflamed hair folicle if it's between the weights/leather and the scrotum skin due to the continuously damp climate between sack and stretcher.
One of many nasty components of feces is e-coli. Healing means removing weights and/or stretchers, cleaning, doing first aid and allowing the rash/infection to heal for at least a day or more. (Jarod covered this well in his guide.)

The tips:
1. Always wipe from front to rear. Even the best wipe is just a smear job.

2. Use a dedicated dry washcloth for your hang to dry it. The bath and hand towels end up all over your body collecting a lot more than water.

3. Soap traces have caused rashes for me when I did'nt rinse under the weights well enough. There is caustic lye used in making soap and the little bit left in most soaps will create a caustic burn if not rinsed off.

4. Wash your hands before handling the hang.

5. Wash, rinse and dry hang (with dedicated cloth) 2 or more times a day. I flop mine in the bathroom sink to clean and rinse with warm water using a plastic cup to pour rinse water on as I move the weights around so that all is well rinsed. Check the underside up high it's easy to miss the soap there as you are trying not to get water on the floor and the drying towel you are using (from tip 2) will spread the soap to the rest of your hang. I cup my fingers around the underside of the upper hang against my body and pour the water between my hand and hang then switch hands and do the other side. This way you can rinse the underside and channel the water into the sink instead of on the floor. Don't forget that with all the washing of the hang using soap and a well done rinse job to use shea or other preperations to keep the skin nice and elastic and also so it doesn't get dried out.

6. Wash your rear. I do after a movement when at home and before bed. If you sleep like I do, back or side, with the hang between your legs your balls are kissing your arse... I use the same sink sitting rear first on the counter over the sink with the hang up on the counter or over the edge. I redirect warm faucet flow with my hand onto the anus to rinse it, if things were messy, soap the same hand with a mild soap and use to clean rear staying away from hang. Then rinse the hand well and redirect water onto rear to rinse well. Then dry. I use another dedicated wash cloth for this that I keep at the other end of my towelrack. Find a way to keep from mixing them up. After a few times this routine is almost as fast as wiping with nary a drop on the hang. I use a mild facial bar of soap (Cetaphil Antibacterial gentle cleansing bar - it's in the cosmetics section of stores) to avoid "chapped lips" of the anus with all this washing that it isnt used to - I use same bar of soap for sack washing after using it to wash my hands first. If the anus gets sore omit the soap unless the movement was real messy and just rinse well.
Check the sink bowl there is almost always a few brown flecks visable. Rinse them down the drain. I then spray sink with a couple of squirts of shower cleaner after each rear wash to sterilize it as it is the same sink used to wash my face and the hang too.

5 and 6 are easy in the shower. But old farts like me and some not as old crap more that once a day.

nvioxos posted a good idea of using baby or adult wet wipes when away from home for #6.

After Jarod, etal,s good comments, let's restate that some of these tips are overkill especially if you are not currently having problems. With normal hygene you won't. But if you are having problems use them to see if it's the poop issue or a reaction to something else.

I love 'the old man' doing a bit of snorkel!
I agree with the comment about 'wet wipes'. They are as good as a bidet, which not many people have the space for, apart from central Europe, and they are very convenient for hygienic cleanup at the rear.

Checked them and Amazon out for other brands of bidet seats also. My big concern is I sit forward to rest my hang, WMCs sleeve and sock on front of the seat to keep from tea bagging the water and fishing for brown trout. Concerned that the jet will either soak my hang or nail me in the back of the neck. Sticking my butt over the sink, I can control where the warm water goes.
More thought needed here.

There are some shower head ones that you put in place by hand but looks as if only cold water don't think that would do your hang any good.
