I’m using this product: https://www.amazon.com/Compound-Fas…B001G7QRE4?th=1
1) Rinse target area (in my case, a patch of foreskin, about an inch in diameter)
2) I slowly cover the area with the 17% salicylic acid gel, one small drop at a time (I try to avoid regular skin)
3) I let the gel dry into a white film (typically I leave it on for 10-15mins, and yes there is a pretty painful burning sensation)
At this point removing the white film is difficult, as it is stuck to your skin, removing it aggressively will result in more pain and redness.
4) What I found works, with minimal discomfort is, rubbing foam hand soap on the white film the gel makes, and then slowly scrapping it off (I personally use a blade of a scissor for this)
*I don’t use lotion afterwards but I’m going to purchase one that targets extra dry skin as I think it may be helpful with healing here
Other than that I would avoid masturbating or anything that puts that particular area under stress. Why? From personal experience because the skin gets really dry it looses elasticity, so stretching the skin can lead to cuts and therefore bleeding.
My schedule was inconsistent at first I tried 1 treatment every 4 days, which I wouldn’t recommend now, I found that it takes about 6 days to heal fully. So one treatment every week, is what I’m going with now.
As far as results go, the darker the discoloration the longer it is going to take. I’m going on treatment 4, most lightly discolored areas are back to normal pigmentation, but formerly heavily discolored areas are still noticeable (but significantly lighter).
I did take a before picture, and once I think I’m done with my diy treatment I might post the before and after results, somewhere on this forum if people are interested.
