Freaked out about rice sock
Guys, I suffer from Peyronie’s Disease (fibrotic scarring inside the penis). A few months ago I noticed an indentation on my erect penis that is a sign of Peyronie’s being active, so I began using a rice sock to apply heat to the penis, thinking increasing circulation would be helpful. I knew from lurking here that some guys use rice socks to heat up before PE.
I was using my Walgreens-bought rice sock just like I use it on my neck - I’d put it in the microwave for 90 seconds, then wrap the penis for about 20 minutes. I never felt any pain, or burned the skin or anything and all seemed fine. Then, I read a study on the Peyronie’s forum I frequent and it was about “Hyperthermia” treatment for Peyronie’s. The study warned very sternly that temperature should not exceed 104 degrees or it could cause “permanent cellular damage, including necrosis.” Well, this freaked me out and I decided to see how hot my rice sock was. I folded it over a meat thermometer after 90 seconds in the micro and it read 140-150!
This has really freaked me out wondering if I did some kind of permanent damage to my penis. It never felt painful and never caused any burning, etc., so I just assumed if it’s not uncomfortable, you’re ok.
Do any of you guys that use a rice sock get it hot like that?
