  • Dry skin on the glans from hanging

    Hello. I am reaching out to get some input on a side effect I am getting from hanging. I have the LG hanger and have had it for a few years. I have been doing PE for several years also. In April I restarted hanging after a year off. I have had dry skin in my glans for the last few months and I think it is effecting the sensitivity of my glans. It has the texture as if I spread elmers glue on my hand and let it dry. It is only on the top half of my glans near the hole. I am currently hanging at 9 pounds. I do appx. three 20 minute sessions in the morning and three 20 minute sessions in the evening on average. I have not had too many other problems. Everything is going good and have gained about 1/2 inch. I do a little jelqing and a little pumping and manual stretching. My wrap style is three 1.5" strips of a beige "Nexcare" tape similar to the white curad tape you sell, across the glans in a star pattern and that completely covers the glans. Then I wrap appx. 8-10" piece in a spiral from the glans down to appx 1"-2" below the glans. I vacuum the hanger so I am snug to the top inside of the hanger and I am usually very comfortable for the 20 minutes. I have gone longer than 20 minutes on the lower weight as I was progressing up to where I am at now. On new weight I would usually do 2 sets at 20 minutes for starters and slowly progress up to close to 30 minutes with three sets and after being at this weight for a while I would increase weight and go back down to two sets at 20 minutes. I have been using vitamin E oil occasionally but it does not seem to help..
    Do you have any advice for me to help get rid of the dry flaking skin? Thanks in advance.

    Follow these steps to alleviate dry skin:

    • Moisturize. Moisturizers provide a seal over your skin to keep water from escaping. Apply moisturizer several times a day and after bathing. Thicker moisturizers, such as Lubriderm, Eucerin, and Cetaphil work best. If your skin is extremely dry, you may want to apply an oil, such as baby oil, while your skin is still moist. Oil has more staying power than moisturizers do and prevents the evaporation of water from the surface of your skin. Another possibility is ointments that contain petroleum jelly (Vaseline, Aquaphor). These may feel greasy, so you might want to use them only at night.

    • Use warm water and limit bath time. Long showers or baths and hot water remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower to five to 10 minutes and use warm, not hot, water.

    • Avoid harsh, drying soaps. It's best to use cleansing creams or gentle skin cleansers and bath or shower gels with added moisturizers. Choose mild soaps that have added oils and fats. Avoid soaps with antibacterial detergents, fragrance, and alcohol.

    • Apply moisturizers immediately after bathing. Gently pat your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains. Within a couple of minutes of bathing, apply moisturizing cream or ointment to trap moisture in your skin. A product in which petrolatum is one of the top three ingredients may be best. Products containing glycerin, lactic acid or urea may also help.
