How do I manage male genital problems on a daily basis?

The first thing you can do to manage male genital problems daily is to follow any advice from your doctor regarding treatment. If your doctor recommends any over-the-counter or prescription medications, make sure you take them according to the directions. At-home remedies may also help you manage genital problems. Rest and ice the affected area if it helps, and wear supportive garments like jockey shorts instead of boxers, and even jock straps if it helps. Practice good hygiene by washing and drying the genital area thoroughly and by wearing loose-fitting pants. If you've been diagnosed with a sexually-transmitted disease, it's important to avoid sexual contact till you've been treated, and notify any sex partners of your diagnosis so they can be tested and treated if necessary.
