Skin cracking at my base. Help please.
Okay so I’m not new to PE at all, and definitely not new to Extenders. I purchased a Penimaster back in like 09 or something and used it until about the end of 2011.
Anyways after being off from 2012-2015 I decided to get back into it in February. I started doing a routine that had worked for me before which was 30 mins stretch, and 30 mins jelq, and 8 hours in Penimaster. Over the past month though I haven’t been able to actually get a routine started because of something that I never suffered before in all my years of using the Penimaster: my skin cracking at the base of my penis.
Now I have Psoriasis, and it originally started on my penis and scrotum when I was like 12. Man that was horrible. I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed me Desonide Lotion 0.05%. And it got rid of it quickly. For the past 10 years or so I have been putting the Desonide Lotion on once a day and the only time I ever get a break out down there is if I run out of cream and stop applying it. As long as I keep it on there it keeps it under control.
However, immediately after starting my routine in February I noticed cracking at the base and mid shaft, and it looked like Psoriasis was coming back. When I would strap on the Penimaster my skin would burn as I stretched it out, but after about a minute the pain would go away. Every time I would strap up the Penimaster the burn would get worse and worse as I continued to use it. My skin couldn’t handle it for some reason, and that was with me continuing to apply the Desonide once a day like I have been doing for the past 10 years. My skin was completely normal before I started PEing again. I couldn’t understand it. Back in 09-11 I never had this problem and I used to crank that thing up and wear it for 12 hours a day at times.
I then stopped all PE and applied the Desonide 2x a day and in 10 days my skin was back to normal. Last week I started using the Penimaster again without stretching or jelqing to see if I’d get the problem again from just the Penimaster. The first time I put on the Penimaster I didn’t feel any burn. It was amazing. Just a stretch. However as the week has passed it is getting red and irritated at the base again and it burns every time I put the Penimaster on. The burning when I strap the Penimaster on gets worse and worse as I wear it.
I don’t understand this. Is this even normal? I don’t think it is. This never used to happen to me before and I used to use the Penimaster all the time. I used to jelq and stretch too and never had a problem. It seems to just be happening at the base. Should I stop and let it heal up before trying again? I’ve been applying the Desonide the best I can. However I don’t think it will heal if I keep stretching it out.
Has anyone else ever had this problem? If so, how can you combat this? Or could this just be normal and stop if I just keep stretching it out? Has anyone else experienced cracking and burning at the base of the penis using an extender?
