Most Common Men's Health Concerns

There's no shame in a little post-workout body odour or morning breath but if your body stinks all the time then it is a big issue. Body odor comes from bacteria that thrive in a moist and warm environment. Bathing twice a day, clean clothes, and antiperspirants will help you get rid of body odor.

An ingrown toenail is a common issue among men. It happens when your nail grows into the skin around it. Commonly affecting the big toe its symptoms pain, redness, swelling, and infection are unavoidable. Avoid cutting nails too short, use nail clippers specifically designed to cut toenails, and wear shoes that are not too tight.

Another common issue is bad breath, or halitosis. It can be caused by smoking or eating strong-smelling foods, but most often it is caused by bacteria in the mouth. Common dental hygiene like tooth brushing, flossing, and mouthwash will help you get rid of bad breath but if none of these are working then you should contact a doctor or dentist. Gum disease, dry mouth, acid reflux, sinusitis, or diabetes can cause bad breath.

Small red bumps that appear after shave form when hairs curl back into themselves and grow into the skin. One way of preventing them is by taking a hot shower before shaving to soften the hairs and open the pores. You can also use thick shaving gel and shave in the direction the beard grows. Do not stretch the skin while shaving and keep a cold wet cloth against your face after you are done with it.
