Shedding the Snake: Peeling to Remove Discoloration
We have a few threads about using various creams and substances to remove discoloration. So far, none seem to work. However, there are anecdotal reports of nice pristine-colored skin returning after lightly burning the skin or removing the top layer by semi-accidental dermabrasion.
So, I figure chemical exfoliation to some depth should do the trick. We need something that is strong enough to do the job, perhaps over repeated applications, but not strong enough to leave our peckers raw and terribly sore. I hope anyone with experience with skin exfoliation of any kind, but especially on the penis shaft will chime in here. Maybe we can get a better idea of what chemical and strength will produce the desired results with either no or very minimal pain. The less down time the better.
Quite a while back I used some AHA lotion. The label says “8% AHA of 70% solution,” whatever that means. When the bottle was new my head, but not the shaft, shed a little skin after a few days. This was too weak to have any effect on discoloration in the few weeks I tried it. I think we need a deeper “burn.”
Today I tried using aspirin. Don’t laugh. Salicylic acid is used in some of the chemical exfoliators. Aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. I ground up 8 aspirin tablets, mixed into a paste with a little water, and rubbed it into my shaft skin. I kept it moist for about 20 minutes, then rinsed well. It made the skin silky smooth and soft. Near as I can tell so far, it didn’t do much else.
I suppose the next step is something stronger. There are beta hydroxy acids, alpha hydroxy acids, etc. all in varying strengths. Any suggestions?
