Doubts he has Peyronie’s disease because he does not have a curved penis

Dear Dr. Herazy,

I have done a lot of reading on your website and am really confused, as to whether I am or I am not a patient of PD.

About a fortnight back, I have felt hardening of a vein, about 1-2 inch of it, below the penis skin, near its root.  However, as on date, I have not felt any curvature of Penis, neither in normal penis, nor while erect.  However, I do feel that I have lost Libido and do feel a little pain, at the point of hardened portion.   Moreover, I do feel that I am not able to maintain Erection, once the intercourse starts and unable to continue strokes.

My Urologist have diagnosed me with Peyronie's plaque and have recommended a daily dose of Vitamine-E cap. 400 mg plus Inj. Kenacort 40 mg +Inj.  Hyalase 1 amp (IV) – weekly for 6 wks.

After going through your website, I assume there could be some side effects of IV injections and would request you to suggest some alternate medicines, to address this issue of "Peyronie's Plaque".

I am a Govt. servant of 50 yrs, 5.5 Ft. height and about 72 Kg weight.

Anil Jain

Greetings Anil,

I must ask why you are confident what you find is actually a hardened vein, and not a Peyronie's plaque since your urologist has already diagnosed you have Peyronies disease.  Many plaques are long and narrow, like a vein. You can certainly have PD and not have a penile curvature at this time; it might develop in the near or distant future; some men never develop a curved penis because the plaques they have are balanced and do not pull the penis excessively to one side or the other. Reduced libido and reduced sexual performance are common to PD. 

Penile injections sometimes cause Peyronie's disease due to injury to the delicate tunica tissue of the shaft.  Having drug injections to treat Peyronies carries a certain level of risk; many MDs who come to me when they develop their own cases of Peyronies refuse to have drug injections into the penis for this reason.  You should talk to your doctor about this. 

Taking solo treatment of synthetic vitamin E is probably not going to help you.  You must use a combination of various therapies as outlined in the PDI website if you hope to impact your ability to treat your problem successfully.  TRH 

Could blood pressure medication cause Peyronie’s disease?

My wife and I wanted to know if blood pressure pills would effect PD as well.

Thank you


Greetings to your wife and you,

Yes, there is a category of blood pressure and heart medication known as beta-blockers that have long been known to cause Peyronie's disease as a side effect.   Other drugs that can cause Peyronie's disease are interferon, used to treat multiple sclerosis, and Dilantin, used as  an anti-seizure drug.  

Here is a partial list of beta blockers:

  • Acebutolol (Sectral®)
  • Atenolol (Tenormin®)
  • Betaxolol (Kerlone®, Betoptic®)
  • Bisoprolol (Zebeta®)
  • Carteolol (Ocupress®)
  • Esmolol (Brevibloc®)
  • Nebivolol (Bystolic®)
  • Metoprolol (Lopressor®, Toprol-XL®)
  • Penbutolol (Levatol®)
  • Pindolol (Visken®)

If you suspect your blood pressure medication is a beta blocker you should talk to your doctor about finding a possible substitute for it.   TRH

Genesen Acutouch Therapy

Genesen Acutouch pointers – professional office equipment for at-home use

Acupuncture is one small part of a 5,000 year-old oriental healing tradition.  It is performed by inserting fine needles into the skin to stimulate or sedate specific treatment points on the surface of the body.  Two main reasons people today who would like to try acupuncture do not do it: the cost and the needles. The availability of the remarkable non-needle Genesen Acutouch professional grade acupuncture equipment has changed all that.

Genesen Acutouch pointers – Acupuncture without needles

The Genesen Acutouch instruments are sometimes called Acutouch pointers or Genesen pointers because of the way that they are used during treatment; they are simply pointed toward an area on the surface of the body. To receive the benefit of acupuncture treatment it is no longer necessary to be concerned about pain, bleeding or fear of needles.   Just point the tips of the Genesen touch pointer and let them do all the work.

The Acutouch pointers are ideal for both the professional acupuncturist and the layperson for three reasons:

  1. Acutouch Pointers are totally safe because they do not penetrate the skin and bleeding cannot occur.  The instrument uses only natural atmospheric infrared, magnetic and ionic energy.  It provides a simple, non-invasive, self-administered treatment that is totally unique in both traditional and Alternative Medicine because it uses no artificial or external power source, with no wires and no batteries to replace – it is totally mobile.
  2. This instrument produces a wide treatment area.  The tissue area that is affected by the galvanic energy field of the Acutouch pointers is huge compared to an acupuncture needle.   The treatment area of an acupuncture needle is about the width of a human hair; the treatment area of the Genesen Acutouch Pointer tip is one inch or 25 mm.  For this reason a person only needs to be roughly close to an acupuncture point for the Genesen device to be effective.  Experts and novices get similar results using it for this reason. This instrument has such a wide area of impact or effectiveness, and it tells you when you are on the correct treatment area, that you cannot make a mistake with it.
  3. Your Genesen pointers will last a lifetime because it has no moving parts, it will never wear out, and it has no external power source.  This is certainly space age technology you can hold in your hands today.  It operates on an infinite supply of natural atmospheric energy, providing the home user with a compact, portable and convenient response to more than 220 ailments, injuries and conditions.
  4. Effectiveness of point stimulation.  The Genesen Acutouch instrument is manufactured to ISO9002 standards; the product carries CE certification as a Class 1 medical device. It causes penetration of chi to pass down through the gold tips (coated in 20 microns of 24K gold for optimum hygiene, performance and response) into the body to a depth of 25mm (1 inch).

Most people do not realize there are many methods to effectively stimulate acupuncture points; pressure, heat and electricity are just a few different ways that are commonly used instead of needle stimulation.   With the recent development of the Genesen Acutouch pointers everyone can safely and easily stimulate various acupuncture points on the body, and do it with just as much accuracy as a highly skilled acupuncturist.

By following the simple instructions that come with this equipment it is now possible for a layperson with no formal training to perform a rather sophisticated acupuncture treatment without encountering any of the problems and limitations of traditional needles.  The Genesen pens (they are often called this because each one looks very much like a ballpoint pen) will indicate to the user when an active acupuncture point has been located and if it is in need of treatment. It is this aspect of the Acutouch pointers that make them so easy to use and effective even in the hands of a total novice.

Acutouch pointers for at-home use

There are several great reasons anyone who is interested in Alternative Medicine would use Genesen Acutouch at-home therapy in place of traditional needle acupuncture.

  • Safety – no needles involved
  • Results – the three forms of naturally occurring energy focused by the Genesen pointers spread out an inch wide and penetrate an inch deep into the tissue to stimulate every acupuncture point for treatment
  • Cost – with professional acupuncture office visits costing anywhere from $75 to $200 each, the Genesen instruments will pay for themselves after just a few uses.
  • Convenience – treat yourself or family members in the privacy and comfort of your home at any time of the day or night, as often as you like
  • Ease – simply look at the pictures in the 160 page instruction book and place the pointers on those same areas of the body. The Genesen Acutouch pointers will tell you if you are on the correct or not; if not, simply move to another spot until the pointers indicate you have located the correct area for treatment.

The Genesen Acutouch instrument was invented by a South Korean engineer, Chi Kyung Kim, in 1999.  It carries several international patents and earned him awards from the governments of several countries.  The Acutouch pointers use a combination of 1200-G focused magnets; a pinpoint far infrared beam (between 6 and 14 micrometers) that is focused down the length of a hexagonal barrel of the device; and a negative ion emitter in a ceramic powder chamber.  These three energy sources are tuned to precisely merge at a gold plated point of the Acutouch device. The gold pointers of the device direct this composite of natural energy into the body, stimulating the body’s inherent ability to regulate and heal itself.

Acupuncture is not one thing. There are many styles of acupuncture and many ways of stimulating acupuncture points. Some of the best acupuncture treatments are those provided using innovation and the ability to respond to the needs of the individual.  The Genesen pointers allow you to do just that kind of self-care treatment.  You can hold in your hands a truly revolutionary treatment device like the Genesen Acutouch pointers even as a layperson and deliver to those you love an effective acupuncture treatment, without the costs, problems and limitations of traditional needles.

Are all lumps involved with Peyronie’s disease painful?

Hello doctor, I am 18 and was wondering a couple things. First, are all lumps involved with Peyronie’s disease painful?  Does PD always result in permanent length loss? If so how much usually and or how long til it stops. And more importantly, I think I may have PD and was wondering if kegeling could cause further damage as it helped my erections. I stopped a couple months ago tho. Also more importantly, I have been taking fish oil for about 6 months now and vitamin e for a week. Since I started taking vitamin e my erections have gotten much harder and I was wondering if that could make my PD worse like Viagra would. Finally, my lump is more noticeable at certain states of the penis than others, and moves with the skin kinda looks like a new vein? It is not hard. Please answer all of the questions I’m nervous :((


Please first get a definite diagnosis of your problem.  You seem to be over analyzing what is happening to you and in your effort to understand your problem without good knowledge or background I am concerned that you are perhaps creating problems that do not exist.  Please go see a local urologist.  TRH

Best Peyronie’s disease treatment, Neprinol 300 or Neprinol AFD?

Neprinol reduces inflammation and tissue damage

Neprinol is a completely vegetarian blend of several different enzymes that have tested to have over six time’s stronger activity to break down fibrin than the leading animal based enzyme blend product.  The enzymes in Neprinol have been shown to be clinically effective in supporting C-reactive protein (CRP) levels when taken as directed.  In this way Neprinol promotes normal levels of anti-inflammatory markers in the blood stream that are part of the physiologic response of the body while  dealing with acute (sprain, strain, overwork) and chronic (arthritis, most soft tissue disease, stroke, blood vessel disease) injury.  As a result Neprinol enzymes will assist the body in its effort to eliminate from the blood stream damaged red and white blood cells, fibrin, any protein material that is part of the inflammation process, as well as other cellular debris and foreign protein that can accumulate in the blood.

Neprinol AFD important in treatment of Peyronie’s disease because it affects fibrin

Fibrin deposition in Peyronie’s disease plaque

Immediately after injury occurs in the body, a protein called fibrin is deposited at the site of injury to act as a meshwork to trap and collect important blood cells and helpful components that create a clot that stops bleeding and promotes healing and repair of the recent injury.  This is normal.  After a period of time this mass of fibrin with it cellular collection changes so that the fibrin is removed and another protein called collagen fills in the spaces and changes the area of repair so that it resembles a fresh scar.  This is normal.  However, in Peyronie’s disease two abnormal things occur, for reasons that are not understood:  the fibrin does not leave the clot, and an excessive amount of collagen forms in the young scar so that it takes on a different name, a Peyronie’s plaque.  The way this fibrin and collagen collect and remain at the site of injury is consistent with repetitive injury to the small blood vessels of the penis.

The benefit of Neprinol AFD to Peyronies treatment is that it can break down and assist the removal of the fibrin that remains in the Peyronie’s plaque or scar.

Neprinol 300 most popular systemic enzyme sold by PDI

The ability to break down fibrin with enzymes, and to do it as economically as possible because it is a larger size bottle, is the reason some people call it Neprinol 300.  The high potency of two key enzyme ingredients, nattokinase and serrapeptase, address the concern about aggressively placing a systemic enzyme product as the foundation of treatment. Start by taking only four Neprinol 300 capsules daily, then slowly increase dosage while monitoring the size, shape, density and surface features of each Peyronie’s scar.  This is a great way to use this Alternative Medicine therapy for treatment of Peyronie’s disease. Neprinol 300 is recommended for both clinical use and therapeutic applications.

No difference between Neprinol 300 and Neprinol AFD

Whether you choose to call it Neprinol 300 or Neprinol AFD, these two terms are simply different names for the same potent enzyme therapy supplement that most people simply call Neprinol.

Neprinol continues to be by far the commonly used Peyronie’s disease therapy product.  Many times I have seen men who are following a particular plan that does not include Neprinol, and they experience slow or totally stalled results.  After adding Neprinol to that same plan it is common to learn that their recovery greatly improved from that point forward.

The name Neprinol 300 refers to the fact that Neprinol is bottled in either a 300 or 90 count bottle, for your benefit.  With the larger Neprinol 300 size bottle it is possible to take advantage of the reduced price of a greater supply and to purchase it fewer times; this is especially helpful for those who use Neprinol for chronic health problems that require prolonged treatment.  With the smaller Neprinol 90 count bottle it is possible to keep a smaller amount on hand for relief from occasional and mild overwork injuries or to simply get acquainted with the Neprinol product by taking a small amount of it.  By far, Neprinol 300 is a much more popular product.

The name Neprinol AFD refers to the primary purpose of Neprinol, as an Advanced Fibrin Defense therapy product.  Neprinol AFD is a name that tells the story that reduction and elimination of fibrin from the blood stream and tissue is what this product is all about.

Neprinol is safe

In over 10 years of use through the Peyronie’s Disease Institute there has been no report of any serious complication or adverse side effect associated with taking any systemic enzyme product like Neprinol, when it is taken in the way that we suggest.  Worldwide experience during this time has revealed, as well as clinical studies have demonstrated, that taking extremely large doses of this product does not result in a toxicity reaction.  Anyone taking a prescription for blood-thinning medication should consult with his treating physician prior to taking Neprinol.

Neprinol for Peyronie’s treatment

As good as Neprinol is when used to reduce Peyronie’s plaque material, it is almost always necessary to use several other in addition to the Neprinol to support and sustain the desired tissue changes.  Neprinol is best taken as part of an already good therapy plan, often used as a substitute for low dose nattokinase and serrapeptase supplements, although some men use all three products with very good results.

Neprinol AFD contains primarily serrapeptase, nattokinase, bromelain, and co-enzyme Q, plus a few other lesser ingredients. Other products also contain serrapeptase and nattokinase, individually, but few put these two in combination and none in the concentration of Neprinol AFD.  It is a more potent form of nattokinase and serrapeptase than if you would buy each in individual bottles, and the Neprinol 300 bottle itself is three times larger than most others that contain 100, to say nothing of smaller bottles with 60 or even 30 capsules.

However, in regard the idea of successful PD treatment is to not focus on any one particular therapy, even if it is a great one like Neprinol because the goal is to attempt to create a synergistic effect with several therapies taken at once for maximum therapeutic effect.  For this reason the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has always maintained that even if someone believes Neprinol (or any other) is a key PD treatment it should not be taken alone but combined for greatest therapeutic benefit.

No one knows how any one will respond to any or all of the 13 Alternative Medicine therapies found on the PDI website.  Some men report some positive results with just one therapy, but more men report better results when they take multiple therapies.  That is what the whole therapy concept of synergy is all about:  the more you do, the larger your plan, the greater the likelihood of promoting a favorable metabolic change to support and encourage scar reduction.  The PDI idea is not to “treat the scar” as a medical doctor would do, but to “treat the man who has the scar” so that his body can heal what is wrong with it.  This is a major concept shift for most medically indoctrinated people.  For this reason, as good a single therapy as Neprinol is, it is not recommended that anyone who is interested in earning good results in treatment of his PD scar should use just Neprinol – or just any one product – but several to create synergy.

Peyronies disease is a tough and terrible thing to happen to a man.  It takes dedication and persistence to overcome it.  Call it Neprinol 300 or Neprinol AFD, but definitely use it in a well diversified plan to break down the fibrin network of your Peyronie’s plaque material.  Success over this problem is never an easy victory, but always worthwhile.


What are your thoughts on Pentoxyfilline for Peyronie’s disease treatment?

Hello Doctor,

I’ve been dealing with this crazy Peyronie’s condition for about 18 months. In that time, I’ve visited 4 different urologists. The first was when I first experienced mild pain in the left tip of my penis. The doctor diagnosed it as prostatitis and send me on my way with some antibiotics. A second urologist several months later diagnosed me with superficial vein thrombosis. Finally, several months after that, I was diagnosed by a third urologist with peyronie’s which seemed to appear as long bands of inflammation from the base of the penis to the tip on both sides. I was told surgery was the only option, and was sent on my way.

Not satisfied with the suggested treatment plan of surgery, I decided to surf the web and do my own research. I found a site that promoted Neprinol as the only known cure. So I bought into it. I think I tried 2 full months (9 pills a day). The only result was a substantial hit on my wallet. So I went back to the web and found another site ( where members talk about various treatment options. The consensus on the site was that Neprinol was in fact a huge scam, and I stopped using them. Members also praised the use of Pentoxyfiline as being an outstanding product for softening scar tissue and alleviating curved penis. So I went back to a fourth urologist and asked for a prescription, but was denied. Instead, i was recommended to try the Andropenis traction device.

I’ve been on the device for 5 full weeks now, but I think I’ve decided to stop. Your website recommends against it, as well as another site. My urologist described it as working in a manner opposite of what a Nesbit procedure would be. For instance, rather than shorten the penis on the site opposite the scar tissue, traction would elongate the scar tissue to correct curvature that way instead. Made sense to me at the time. But now it sounds as if traction does not work because it’s not really stretching the scar tissue, rather only healthy tissue.

So if I stop with traction, I’ll be happy to not deal with that contraption any longer. It reminded me of having my penis in a mousetrap for 9 hours a day. Not to mention I always worried about whether people could see it jutting out through my trousers at work, and despised having to take it off every two hours to relax. That’s not always easy in the middle of a busy work day.

In any case, I came across your web site again. I’ve decided I’m going to give your “Medium” package a try, so I placed an order. I admit I’m very reluctant because you seem to be a heavy proponent of Neprinol, and I’ve heard people state emphatically that the product is a scam. I also ordered your Handbook. It’s expensive, but maybe there’s something in it that I can learn.

I do have a few questions if you wouldn’t mind responding. Today, I have two “knots’ in my penis. One that feels about the size of a dime on the right size near the base of my penis. Another is about the same size, also on the right size, but towards the tip. But my penis bends to the left when flaccid (sometimes 10-20 degrees, sometimes 45 degrees like after masturbation), and I can’t figure that out. That’s seems counter to everything I’ve heard before, that the bend is on the same side as the plaque.  So if you have any insight as to why my bend is to the left when my plaque is on the right, I’d be very interested. Regardless, that leads to my first question, how will I know where to apply the topical treatments? Would I apply to the right side where the “knots” or “bumps” are located, or should I be looking somewhere on the left side for plaque? Or should I just apply the treatment to the entire penis shaft? Maybe directions come with the kit, but any advice you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Second, can you share your thoughts on Pentoxyfilline and it’s effectiveness for Peyronie’s. Not sure if I’m spelling that correctly.

Finally, who can I find a coupon code? I noticed when I placed the order for one medium package and one book, that there was a place to enter a coupon code. I did some web surfing to find a code, but was unable. If you can share a code, or apply a n appropriate discount to my order, I’d greatly appreciate that.

Hope you’re doing well. Looking forward to your thoughts.


Greetings Mike,

Thank you for your informative letter and specific questions.  I will reply with comments and answers in the order of your email.

There is no direct known cure for Peyronie’s disease.  Neprinol is not a cure, but is is not a scam.  In my opinion, after working with many hundreds of men from around the world who are undergoing Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronie’s disease, I know Neprinol is an excellent enzyme product.   It cannot be counted on as a solo therapy for Peyronie’s disease since none of the products found on the PDI website are by themselves able to change the PD scar or plaque material.  None of the therapies found on the PDI website are good solo therapies – they all must be used as part of a larger plan to support the natural healing process that is the only known form of cure for Peyronie’s disease.   When Neprinol is combined properly and taken aggressively the results can be dramatic.  I do not know how any of the experts on the various Peyronies forums actually used Neprinol when they took it, but many times when I communicate with men about their failure with  Neprinol I learn that they “tried it for a few weeks and it did not work,” or “I took two pills a day and it did not work,” or some similar manner of use that is doomed from the start.   In order to get results from Neprinol it must be used correctly.  If you bought your Neprinol from PDI we warned you not to use it that way; if you bought it from someone who does not know anything about PD you did not get that kind of help so you would know better.  Peyronie’s disease is a tough and tenacious problem to treat.  I am not surprised at your lack of results after using Neprinol as a solo therapy.

Here is a simple example that just occurred to me about Neprinol and PD:   Beans are a great food.  I like beans.  But by itself beans make a lousy chili – it is just beans.  For a good chili you have to add meat, garlic, onions, tomatoes, lots of different spices and a few other items.  It is only by combining the beans with all the other ingredients that you create chili.  None of the ingredients by itself is chili.  It is in using the correct technique (there are rules for bringing the ingredients together, you cannot just throw everything into a pot) when you bring all these things together to develop the magic that becomes a great bowl of chili.  Same with combining Neprinol with the other things your body needs to help it overcome and correct your curved penis and Peyronie’s disease.  

Pentoxifylline is popular with some urologists and not so much with others.  I think that those who actually prescribe pentoxifylline do so because they are tired of dealing with the other drugs that do not work and only use this one because they do not know what else to use.   Perhaps I am being overly skeptical and blunt in my assessment.   Some time back I wrote two articles that might be helpful on this subject, Pentoxifylline, Niacin and Peyronie’s Disease and Pentoxifylline and Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Every month I hear more horror stories about the mechanical penis stretcher devices.    You did not indicate what problems you were having that you wanted not to deal with it any longer, but it usually has to do with pain as well as skin abrasions and blisters, and the fact that it does not work for the large majority of men.

The two plaque or internal scars you have located do not explain your deviation to the left.  My experience is that Peyronie’s plaque are usually multiple.  I suspect that the two you have found on the right are not the only ones that you have.  I suspect you also have one or more plaque on the left that are far more aggressive and instrumental in distorting your penis that those you have found on the right.   Let me know if you need help locating the other scars and I will assist you.   If you can not locate those scars on the left that are causing your distortion pattern I suggest that you apply the therapy at the deepest or lowest point of your concavity on the left. You could apply the DMSO, Super CP Serum and Unique-E vitamin E oil to the entire shaft if you wanted to, but it is unnecessary and wasteful; be as specific as possible.   I trust that the detailed DMSO instructions you received with your order cleared up this point for you. 

When you received your order you were given information about the use of a discount code for subsequent orders.

Let me know if  I can help you in any way.  TRH 


Does glucosamine and chondroitin aggravate or cause Dupuytren’s contracture?

I read that glucosamine and chondroitin makes Dupuytren's contracture worse.  Is that true?  I have it in my hands, as does my mother and we both stopped taking glucosamine and chondroitin because of what I read.  Should we go back on it?

Valerie Kurokawa

Greetings Valarie,

The question about the association between glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate and Dupuytren's contracture occasionally arises.  I can tell you that i have not found any clear and compelling research into this area on which to base an opinion, so the best I can do is fall back on what makes sense and what I have read over the years about the experience of others with Dupuytren contracture when taking  glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.

I have read on various Dupuytren's forums that people who have DC report that when taking glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for osteoarthritis that their hand lumps and cords become thicker and their hand mobility is worse.  Further, they also report after stopping the glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplements that their hands improve.   Of course all of this is greatly anecdotal, but most of the good things we do to help Dupuytren contracture are anecdotal in nature because we lack the kind of research we would like to have and rely on common sense and observations of cause and effect.

 While I do not have a solid answer to give you, I suggest it would be prudent for you and your mom to find a better way to help your arthritis problem  that using  glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.  TRH

What are your thoughts about Peyronie’s disease after second prostate biopsy?

I never had a problem with my penis til the last year. I am 63 yo, WM who has had two prostate biopsies over the last 6 yrs…each biopsy came back negative. After this second biopsy I notice my cock bends towards my tummy when erect and that it has lost about 3/4 of a inch…this is substantiated by my wife. Also, I have trouble obtaining and maintaining a erection even with the use of ED drugs.  Please help with your thoughts.

Thank you,

Peter Martin

Greetings Peter,

Your upward distortion and lost of penile length suggest the possibility of Peyronie's disease.  I suggest you have yourself examined to see if that is true or not.  I also suggest you go to a urologist different than the one who did the biopsies to assure a more non-biased and straightforward discussion.

Many men with Peyronie's disease develop it as a result of repeated catheterization associated with prostate surgery and biopsy.  Please refer to "Possible Peyronie's Cause:  Catheter and Cystoscopic Trauma."   Much abuse to the shaft and urethra can and does take place during these procedures and this could lead to Peyronies disease developing; since this traumatic effects tend to accumulate, all the more so.  

Further, repeated use of ED drugs (PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra) can also lead to a curved penis.  For more information you should read "Peyronies and Viagra" and "Peyronie's Disease Plaque, Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and Blood Supply."

There are some good things that Alternative Medicine can offer you in the way of Peyronie's treatment.  Please read the PDI website for information on a way out of using more drugs and procedures that can make your problem worse than it is now.   TRH  

Information about using DMSO for Peyronie’s treatment

Does wiping off the DMSO and other topicals after the first five minutes reduce the effectiveness of the treatment?


When you received your order of DMSO you were given detailed instructions about application and cleaning up afterward.  The instructions told you that after the first 5-7 minutes all DMSO would be absorbed into the tissue along with the other topical therapy you are using to treat Peyronie's disease.  After this time you can safely wipe it off since all DMSO is gone.  Any oily film that remains is simply the gel that is used as a carrier for the DMSO solution.  TRH

Can this problem with my penis be cured?

Hello Doctor,
I am 14 years of age and my name is Mo.
I've always thought my penis is normal until further investigation,
that shaft going down my penis has always worried me, and the curve started getting me researching,
so after finding out I probably have it since my penis arches and I have a shaft, I started thinking why,
it shouldn't occur in people my age. Well my sister kicked my penis when I was younger and I went to
the hospital after it went really black, they stitched back up my penis and since that day there's been a shaft,
cant really remember how long that was, but definitely years, then as I was growing up my penis starts curving,
I really need help. I'm EXTREMELY scared of what this can do to me, and I just want to be normal.
Also can this be cured? Can I over-come this and have my penis normal shaped?

Thank You,

Greetings Mo,

The way you use the word "shaft" confuses me.  You use it as though it was an abnormal structure.  Most people use the word to indicate the primary long cylindrical mass of the body of the penis minus the head or glans portion.   For this reason of uncertainty I cannot respond to this portion of your concern.

You are asking important questions without providing enough information that would allow me to offer suggestions to you.  Do you have Peyronie's disease as a result of the injury you received? 

If you are that concerned about your current condition I strongly suggest that you speak to your parents or an adult family member you trust to explain that you have a medical problem for which you want help.  When you are asked you can explain that your problem is of a personal nature and you would only feel comfortable discussing it with a doctor.     TRH
