Shedding the Snake: Peeling to Remove Discoloration

MCD,

I tried it at 10 minutes and 5 inches (is this a barometric measurement? Interesting to know) last night. I thought it was working when I was swollen, but later it was back to the same look for me. I think I have pretty much trapped the hemosiderin (rust) in between my dermis and epidermis, and unless I want to be the newest arch enemy in an Austin Powers movie (move over Gold Member, here comes Bronze Member — aka Black When Limp) I am going to have to do Hobby’s treatment.

I have done some internet research on it, and it looks like the professionals often use 30% strength for the peel. I found a seller on ebay with peel kits of both the 20% and 30% strength. I also found a site with salicylic acid in 8%, 15% and 25% strengths http://shop.kaviskin.com/catalog/Sa…o-p-1-c-20.html From what I have read, the 8% is too weak for a complete first time peel. Hobby said that he would have preferred 18% over the 17% that was in the wart remover. Another poster indicated that he used the liquid solution of salicylic acid with no results. I am curious as to how long he left it on. The site I listed above indicates 60 to 90 seconds for both the 15% and 25% solutions. Hobby left his on for around ten minutes, he guessed. He also said that he thought it would work better if he could see the “frosting”, thus knowing it was on long enough. I did find another site, seemingly intended for medical professionals, that also referenced leaving it on until the frosting occurred. Is Hobby or Huff out there? Which do you think is better — 15% or 25%?

My only experience is with Equate brand wart remover (the cheapest at Wal-Mart ;) ). If I were to use anything else I’d hunt down the 1/2 oz. sample sizes of salicylic acid I saw before. Someone had them for about $10 a bottle.

Wart remover bottles contain 1/2 oz. One would have been enough for all my burning if it hadn’t gummed up. I used two, for a total cost of about $6. If using wart remover, don’t leave the cap off any longer than necessary.

Money is not the issue. I already ordered the 15% and 25% solutions from the previously-posted site. Based on your earlier posts, I think that using one of these solutions, with a small soft-bristled paint brush, until I see frosting, is the plan. But, the question is which solution. I have an gal from the past that I have been talking to, and we are contemplating “rekindling” our relationship. Thus, and I want to take care of this problem quickly, without having a mottled penis. But, I do not want to have half of a penis because I burned off the rest, either. My research revealed that the pros use stronger solutions, and look for the frosting you described. I am inclined to use the 25%, let it frost up, and then rinse it off. Bad idea?

Don’t rush the process. You’ll have to learn how much frosting is enough to produce a good peel. The prudent approach is to gradually work up from not enough. You don’t want to burn too deep.

I generally gave the skin 2 weeks between burns, though toward the end I did some tougher areas weekly. The weekly burns were after my break. Maybe the skin was tougher from the previous round.

I’d start with the 15% solution on a small patch until a very light frosting occurs. If you don’t get a good enough peel, use the 15% again on a different area until slightly more frosted. And so on. You’ll learn the degree of frosting needed.

If a stronger solution is desired, make a small batch of 15% with some 25% added to kick it up a notch or two. Go from there. You have the option of every increment from 15-25%.

Not on penises. Keep in mind that most everything you’re reading out there is about peeling the face.

Also, pay close attention to exactly where you burn. Unintentional overlapping will make your asshole pucker. :eek:

This is very frivolous but since this is a thread dedicated to the appearance of the cock I might aswell ask - I have a few scars at the base of my unit. They are, however lighter then the rest of the skin instead of darker which most scars/discolouration seem to be. My dick is naturally tanned, and a few grazes (I think from masturbation as a kid) have left small white circular marks on it. Any ideas how to make the marks go away or just match the skin colour again?

Thanks Dude. The supplies should arrive shortly. I will take your advice. If this all works out, I may have to nominate your for the next president.

Not an expert on this topic at all, but in my computer searching, I seem to recall that there are problems with people of darker skin color developing lighter patches or areas, and for which reasons I do not remember. I think that that the sites said there was no medical remedy for this issue, but you may want to do the search yourself. The acid peel will not be a resolution for you, as it will likely cause a lightening of the skin, given your skin tone (I think), and the sites I accessed specifically said that the acid peel does not remedy some kind of scar — I forget — but I think it is a deep scar versus a surface blemish. But, I am not a doctor, nor have I played one on TV.

Huff is on to something here. I applied the acid in 15%, and then in 25%, last night. Using a Q-Tip swab I hit the affected (discolored areas. At first you could not see a difference. Then the white “frosting” started to appear. Problem was, it was not frosting up in the areas most affected (darkest). That is when I switched to the 25% for those areas. It took some doing, but I got most of those areas to frost, too. I do not know if it was because the skin was thicker there, or if it was because it was on the bottom side of the penis, and the acid was continually running down and keeping it wet — but I don’t think the wetness stops the frosting affect.

At first I thought I would need to re-apply, after a cold shower (damn that felt good after the burn). But I waited a bit, and I am glad I did. The skin became quite swollen and was obviously traumatized. It had a tolerable burning/aching sensation from the rest of the evening. This morning, eleven hours later, the skin is still swollen, but not much. The skin has the same traumatized look. The areas affected by discoloration (hemosiderin) that I hit extra hard have a generally dark grayish look — but not nearly as dark as the areas looked before. I am guessing that is because the skin is swollen (and when expanded the areas looked lighter), and the skin still has the whitish look.

Looking forward to the peel. Hopefully, by using the liquid and trying to get all of the areas to frost, I will get this all in one fell swoop.

Maybe the goo from the collodian stuff saves the active ingredient - the salicylic acid - from evaporating? Who knows.

Alffie,

Please keep us informed of every devolpment. I’m going to be going down this route, but not for a while (want to hit some PE goals first). But I feel like I’m next behind you in the queue to a doctor’s office, listening out for any screams from inside. But I’m rooting for your peel to work.

One other thing. Has anyone out there done a chemical peel on an uncut dick? I’m wondering if there should be any special considerations for peeling a foreskin…?

Glad to Chad66. I feel so thankful for discovering this forum, where I learned of the (definite/probable/possible?) solution to my dilemma. My discoloration had become so bad that it was causing me real stress for my next relationship or even encounter. Hobby’s excellent thread is great. It got me doing a lot of research on this, and I think it is going to work.

It is coming up on 24 hours since application. The skin on top is definitely affected and working out the way that Hobby posted — swelling is gone and the skin is dark and sort of hard. The skin on the bottom side — where the real discoloration was located is also dark, which is also how it was from the hemosiderin deposits, but it feels hard in the same way the top skin does. So I hope it too will peel. I’ll post more results as they happen.

Go Alffie!!!! I wish you all the best on your experiments. I’m right there with chad66 in wishing you great results and your pushing the envelope on this method. Although I’m certainly a proponent of using natural methods to cure/heal/repair the body, this method of getting back to a more natural shade promises to alleviate what I see as one of the potential drawbacks to PE- and certainly, being succeptible to discoloration myself, I am *personally* pulling for this to work out.

I’ve got a feeling I’ll be looking back at this thread a year from now and searching out many of the supplies and techniques alluded to in this thread.

Happy peeling, and may the “hard dark” be replaced by the soft pink. ;-)

First of all, great accolades to Hobby (and Huff). This stuff really works. I used the 15%, then the 25%, all in liquid form. I had a hard time getting some of the areas to “frost” and I went way over the prescribed times (60 to 90 seconds) to achieve the “frosting” effect — as much as 12 minutes, and I hit it again! It was scary after that. First, my penis became puffy, sore and inflamed. Then, it turned dark brown. Then the dark brown skin became hard and brittle, eventually falling off completely at day five (and it was scary before that — imagining scarring, disforming, losing my penis, becoming a priest, etc.). Then, after it peeled, I was greatly relieved. The discoloration was gone by 4/5’s — I am no longer Bronze Member. The discoloration is still there in most of the same areas — but much lighter, and not visible when erect. Some of the areas seemed to be hit hard enough that the new skin is truly pink and pristine. On the other areas, I am hopeful that one more hit of the acid will work. I regret that I again started pumping at low levels to remove the hemosiderin a few days back, as I feel that I may have reintroduced the hemsiderin to new sub levels. The pump will be GONE!!

In doing my “treatment” I did fry my outer skin on the scrotum, from the liquid running down as I kept applying it to the bottom of the shaft. It is healing nicely, and I think it will be like new in a few days. I will have to devise a way to keep the solution off the scrotum the next time I do this — maybe pulling on the penis, then taping the base, and then putting on a plastic shield?

I think that part of the problem is that the skin has multiple levels, and the hemosiderin gets trapped in these levels. If I had to do this over, I would follow the directions (60 to 90 seconds), let it peel, then hit it again in a week or two, until all of the skin has peeled. I think that it needs two (or three) peels because of the layers of skin.

This is really, REALLY cool news alffie. Since the only drawback for me regarding PE is the fact that I seem kind of prone to discoloration, knowing that there’s an avenue of repair excites the shit out of me! One thing I’ve definitely taken to heart is the reccomendation to make sure and warmup EVERY TIME. I think pretty much all of my discoloration (just a little band between circ scar and glans) came from doing PE without warming up/warming down. IMO warming down is just as important as warming up where people prone to discoloration is concerned. Thanks for your posts alffie and keep us posted on your touchups and whatnot. Congratulations!!!!

Oh, and btw, there’s something you can buy at sally beauty supplys called “barrier cream” which is an oil based, you guessed it, “barrier cream” which they put on the scalp when giving perms to people with sensitive skin. I think if you coated your nutsack with this stuff prior to application it just might do the trick as far as keeping the acid from burning your scrotum is concerned. Of course, as with anything, a patch test is reccomended to make sure that the salycilic and the barrier cream are not reactive. Vaseline might also be a go-to for this kind of “barrier” effect.

Good for you.

>Then the dark brown skin became hard and brittle, eventually falling off completely at day five (and it was scary before that — imagining scarring, disforming, losing my penis, becoming a priest, etc.).

Yeah, earlier peels had me worried I might have done something really stupid.

Be sure to resist the urge to pick at the dead skin. I once helped it along in one little spot, and the new skin stayed pinker than the rest for longer - almost like scar tissue.

Vaseline helped keep the dead skin moist so the jagged edges were less prone to catching on my underwear. 5 days is quicker than mine took. Usually I’d rinse the last bits off in the shower on the 7th day.

>Then, after it peeled, I was greatly relieved. The discoloration was gone by 4/5’s — I am no longer Bronze Member.

On the other areas, I am hopeful that one more hit of the acid will work.

Don’t be surprised if the lightened areas redarken slightly, or at least seem to, as the peeled skin regains its natural skin tone. I suspect the pink hue makes it appear a little more pristine than it really is.

I’m a little disappointed plain acid didn’t take the darkness out evenly. You’re probably right about the scum being in different layers.
