Leathery skin on right side of glans

Leathery skin on right side of glans

Quickly, on the right side of my glans, the skin feels leathery.

I have started hanging again & have been hanging for the last week. 3 sets 20 min.

I have never noticed or experienced this before. But I must say, I have a tendency to get a bit numb from hanging. Which is why I likely have very little gains because I don’t seem to be able to sustain a routine very long before a problem pops up.

But I am wondering if anyone has experienced the leathery skin thing I am experiencing? I just did a google search for “tissue death symptoms.” It turned up something on gas gangrene. I don’t think that is it. No swelling.

I have only noticed this over the last two days. And I would say sensation is muted a bit, but that is not uncommon w/ hanging.

I’m thinking something along the lines of compromised circulation in some way?

I don’t know? But any thoughts, similar situations and/or solutions would be welcome.

Where is Westla when you need him? :-k

Westla? Paging the ever informative Mr. Westla??

Well West, when ever you find the thread, thanks for what ever info you can offer.

And this isn’t limited to West, anyone else feel free to chime in.

I have been hanging with a noose style hanger for about 9 months now. The only thing allowing me to do that is allot of wrap. I know this is very dangerous, but my glans are not in proportion with my girth(smallish head) so a fat shoe lace is the only thing I can use, hangers cause me to much pain. It took a while to condition to handle this, and it caused this lethery skin your talking about. It hasn’t been a problem for me it’s more or less a calus. It’s still soft enough during sex that it isn’t a problem.

Hmmmm.

You got a callous where?

I don’t have a callous, just leathery skin on the right side of the glans. And I use a Bib, so it’s not a noose that is causing a problem.

But I did/do have a tendency to twist in the Bib. So I probably tend to tighten more than is necessary for the weight. And I think that may be related to some of my tendency to get a bit numb. But twisting can lead to numbness, so it’s kind of a choice there. I need to find a happy medium for sure.

And Knee, I would recommend that you find something other than the noose hanger. They can be dangerous. Even w/ a lot of wrap, the noose is applying pressure on the nerve bundle. Not good.

Hey anon, I think Knee might be saying that your “leathery skin” sounds like the beginnings of a callous. It would not likely look or feel the same as a callous on your hands because the tissue is different. Can you offer anything more descriptive? Is there generally a loss of some sensation where the skin has become leathery? Does it seem thicker and less resilient? Has the color of the skin changed?

Knee, Anon’s warning is fair, but you know your circumstances better than we do. I wear an ADS with a noose-type attachment and I also wrap the glans and shaft well with a special medical tape before I apply the tension (adjust over 2 pounds). I have been wearing this setup for abut 3 months at an average of 6-10 hours a day. I never have circulation problems but the sensitivity of my glans has changed. The extra sensitivity is not permanent (it comes and goes) but I am wary of it. I am actively looking for a new method of attachment that is more of a wide, semi flexible strap. Do what works for you, but do be careful.

Descriptive?

Leathery on the whole right side, from the center point over. Whole way around.

Loss of sensation?

Yeah. But to completely put that in perspective, for me, that is not uncommon when I begin to hang. Usually there is some area on the glans that ends up w/ muted sensation. And the area that gets numb varies. Maybe it’s a me thing. But probably related to the twisting and related level of tightening.

W/ all that said, the leathery skin is completely new.

Thicker, less resilient?

I don’t know about thicker? Definitely more wrinkled & crackly, but not dry at all.

Color change?

I would have to say no.

There are so many variables that it’s difficult to say what is happening. My first thought is that the spongy glans tissue is being compressed and that might drive enough water from around the cells to compact the tissue. Repeated hanging only keeps it from returning to normal. My second thought is related to the twisting which might be rubbing the surface of the glans and creating a callous (as you discussed). The third thing, but least likely, is that somehow the reduced circulation is causing a change, but it’s odd that it’s only on one side.

I guess we’d be better able to help if you could post a photo. If you can we’ll move this to the injuries forum for viewing by members only. You might also stop hanging for a week and see if it clears up. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. :shrug:

Thanks anyway west. I’ll monitor it & see what happens. I have only noticed it for the last two days, so maybe it is just whatever?

I am relieved to hear that nothing alarming jumps out at you. Like I need to cease & desist from whatever immediately or ………… So, I’ll play wait and see.

Also, as far as a pic, it really wouldn’t help in diagnosing. Nothing looks different. I just feels odd to the touch.
