I am still wereing a sock and and still have a sore about the size of a pea. I continue to lube up with a silk strip and a sock, but those fucking night time erections are killing me. It opens the sore and the sore bleeds. This is maybe one of the first times I hoped not to get an erection. I must say, I used Compound W and that shit will burt the hell out of you. When I went to wash it off, I kinda turned to a plastic and was hard to get off.
