Hi Dr. Herazy,
I'm using the DMSO, Super CP serum and Nattokinase for congenital curvature with some success however the skin on the penis is becoming extremely wrinkled. I also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome so my skin is more elastic than the average person.
I'm assuming this is due to the damage DMSO is causing to the epidermis. Is there anyway to counteract this and when I stop using the products will the skin return to normal? At present I'm using several drops twice daily.
Congratulations on making improvement with the congenital curved penis problem. Many people say it cannot be done, but we know that these things do improve when you do it correctly.
Well, first of all, for those who are not familiar with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, allow me to say briefly that it is a congeniral disorder in which loose joints, scoliosis (spinal curvature), easy bruising and sprained joints are common, along with skin that more stretchy or lax than normal, and a general weakness of most tissues. For this reason I am not surprised that you might also develop Peyronie's disease along the way, since the underlying abnormality of this problem is thought to be an inherited weakness or abnormality of tissue collagen, which is glue that holds tissue cells together.
You are the first person in over 10 years of doing this work who has reported that the skin has wrinkled after using DMSO and you are the first person who has used it who also has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. There is a correlation. No one else has ever reported this kind of response from DMSO.
DMSO would not affect normal skin in the way that your skin is affected. You must know by now that your situation is unusual and that you are not going to respond like other people to this simple DMSO therapy. Typically when DMSO is applied to normal skin it will bring the normal oil that is located on the skin surface and bring that oil down into the deeper strata of the epidermis; this causes normal skin to sometimes become dry and itchy and not much else. Simply reducing the frequency of DMSO application is all that is necessary to correct the dry and itchy skin response.
I would assume – and I stress, assume – that your skin is reacting in the same way and only becoming wrinkled by the lack of oil since DMSO is stripping from the surface and taking it deeper into the tissue. But, then again, even on a good day your skin looks and feels different than other people since it tends to be super-soft and smooth compared to most everyone else.
I ask that you please go to your specialist who you are seeing about your Ehlers-Danlos syndrome for an expert opinion. Please follow your treating doctors recommendation, and pose these same questions. Please let me know what you learn. TRH
