BXO treatment... Page 3 of 20

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I had the ring and this worked like magic for it. If thats your only symptom, try 50/50 tea tree oil and dmso. Apply a few times a day and see what happens. Usually, you start to see results (peeling) within a couple days.

I have also had BXO for some years. It started with a hard ring around the foreskin. It did not bother me much for a long time as it did not hurt or itch. It might have started after rough sex as a student when my foreskin was split.

However, the ring was slowly getting bigger and the forskin tighter and suddenly it was difficult to retract the foreskin over the gland.

Then things started going downhill rapidly since forcing the foreskin over the gland could lead to splits of the foreskin.

Now i have no chance of retracting the foreskin and a red area with very brittle skin has formed on the outside of it. I had to do someting so I turned to the internet and found this discussion.

I ordered the red clover, emu oil, tea tree oil and dmso. I started treatment last week and I saw the peeling after about a day or two, excactly as described here. Then I traveled a lot at work and did not follow the regiment, and last weekend I drank a lot.

I started with the treatment again on monday and the foreskin got really dry and sore and it split easily, so I stopped using dmso, frequently moisturized with coconut oil, and used fewer drops of tea tree oil.

Now it has started peeling again and the reddish outer area is getting really soft. It seems to be going in the right direction! I will probably start soon with the dmso again on the hard ring and hope that will be effective.

I think it is really important to eat healthy foods. I eat lots of vegetables, eggs, chicken, beef, fruit, butter, try to limit intake of gluten, nitrates/nitrites and fried food.

I am taking a full range of supplements to ensure that the body gets ALL the 90+ nutrient it needs. This also help tremendously against cravings for pizza, candy and other unhealthy foods (and also sex!) which is very helpful!

The supplements I am taking (per 100 lbs per month) is:

1 healthy start pack from youngevity
2 bottles of ultimate selenium

I do not think I will reorder the red clover when it runs out, but if I stop seeing progress I might have to reconsider. I have ordered betaine HCL with pepsin for my digestion as I suspect the stomach acid isn´t working properly. I have also ordered probiotics since I my stomach in general behaves very strangely, even when I eat healthy and avoid foods I might not tolerate that well. I hope this will increase the uptake of nutrients so that the healing will go faster.

Thank you so much for your help and sound advice. I will keep you updated on my progress!

Cool man sounds like you are taking every precaution. Definitely make sure you are consistent because that makes a big difference. I caught mine pretty early so I never had a huge problem with my skin being so brittle. I think I said it before, but I freaked out when it became hard to retract and within 3-4 weeks decided that tea tree oil and DMSO were my go to plan.

Diet is huge to continued success, no sugar and no fake sugar.
dfrance 8 years ago
Hi all,

First off, I want to say a huge thanks to everyone in this forum, you guys RULE!

I've had BXO for as long as I can remember. The foreskin was tight and overtime kept tightening. During sex and masturbation it would sometimes split and become very painful. This has left ugly scarring that doctors said would not go away. They recommended steroid cremes which only thinned the skin, making it easier to split! I thought circumcision was my only option..... I have been following the treatment for a couple of weeks now and I am so happy to see an end to this virus in sight!!

Here are a few tips from my experience.

1. Stop with the steroid creme! The mixture I use is 50% DMSO and 50% Tea Tree Oil. I am in Canada and got my bottle from Ebay. I apply it usually twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Sometimes I apply it 3 or 4 or 5 times a day. It will sting! But after the first couple times I now feel no discomfort.

2. When it first started to peel, I was impatient and tried to peel as much off as I could. This made some areas of the skin very tender, painful and raw. I strongly encourage you not to do this. It will peel in time and quicker if you keep it clean and dry. I applied 16+ Manuka honey to the foreskin and took a break from the treatment for a couple of days and it healed dramatically! One guy has had great results with Maunka honey, you can check out his blog 'BXO Balanitis phimosis natural treatment or cure' by searching 'BXO Manuka honey' in Google.

3. DMSO & Tea Tree Oil will heal you but diet is KEY. Take salmon oil and red clover and cut out sugar.

After only a couple of weeks my scarring is going away, the foreskin is beginning to loosen and sex is no longer painful. I am confident that anyone who follows this regiment will cure themselves. This is not a 'quick fix', it will take time to undo the damage, but it has given me dramatic results fast.

Be patient and you will be healed!

Hey everyone, glad to hear Gemeni's post. Thats great news and its a blessing to him and other people looking for help. Thanks for the testimony bro.

Just wondering because this thread has become pretty quiet if the rest of you guys are healed or close to being healed? What were your results and please share? I'm guessing no one came back because they are all healed, but it would be nice for people who look at this in the future to see people who started come back and give a testimony.

I have tried to be faithful to this forum since I kind of gave direction on the program and recommended it to you all. I want to help in anyway I can because I don't want anyone to waste money on, or needlessly suffer from this disease.

Hi dfrance and congrats with superb progress gemini!

I myself have been dishearted at times, but sometimes it feels worse before it gets better.

I did react somewhat negatively with the 50:50 dmso and tea tree oil solution in the beginning,so I reduced it to tea tree oil and emu oil, about 1:4 maybe. In the weekend I peeled of almost everything left of the thick foreskin, so only tea tree and the emu works wonders for me.

The problem now is the tight foreskin that has developed because of the thickening ring that has now dissapeared. It is difficult to stretch without it breaking up, and the foreskin gets very sore, dry and puffy if I have it pulled back for a long time.

I think I will let it rest now for a while and see how it goes. If it does not improve I will start with dmso and tea tree 50:50.

Anyway,very encouraging. I can pull the foreskin back far more now when the thick ring of the foreskin has dissapeared.

I also thank all of you for the wise suggestions and encouragment. It feels empowering to heal yourself with natural remedies! It also makes me question the approach of the MD's...!

Hi Radiator,

Try Manuka honey when the skin gets painful dry and uncomfortable.

Manuka and Tea Tree are two names for the same plant. Honey is known for anti fungal and healing properties!
gemini33 8 years ago

I will try that!Thank you for the advice!

Just came back from the urologist. He said I have phimosis but not quite yet bxo. Told me the only cure is to get circumcised and that the condition can only get worse.

I got the white patch of skin on the glans where the skin is uncovered by the foreskin, the tight ring around the foreskin just like you guys.

I'm currently taking a multivitamin, fish oil, and eating a paleo diet. (cut out the sugar) right now I'm just moisturizing the area with 100% shea butter. keeps it from cracking and sh*t

Good luck to all you guys.I have some tea tree oil and I ordered some DMSO and it should come in the mail 3-4 days and I appreciate dfrance's posts on here for giving me hope.

look forward to hearing from ya'll

Hey guys. I'm a 22 year old male with similar symptoms to what is described here. I first noticed about 6 months ago, hard white spots (like hardened skin) on the foreskin near and around the tip of my penis and frenulum. They do not itch or cause any direct discomfort thankfully.

I was hoping they'd go away on their own but over the last 2 months they have spread and caused my foreskin to get really tight to the point where I have a band around my penis. When erect it is impossible to pull my foreskin all the way back (was pretty easy before all this) and when flacid it is possible but painful and difficult due to the tightness. I feel as if the hard white spots have caused my foreskin to become less flexible/elastic.

I went to my doctor and he said I have phimosis. He said it would not get better and my only option was to live with it for as long I can until surgery becomes necessary.

I'm keen to start the 50/50 DMSO & Tea Tree Oil mixture to rid myself of the white hard skin on the foreskin. However will this help with the phimosis too? Will it help to soften/loosen the skin? I'm assumming that it will get rid of the hard white skin, so the skin should return to normal? Is that correct?

Thanks guys.

sorry to hear your troubles...in many of our experiences, the mixture that is described has helped with everything. by getting rid of the layers of white skin it allows normal skin to grow back. even if it doesn't 100% fix the problem, it makes it 99% more liveable. As long as you stay consistent with the DMSO and Tea Tree oil I see no reason why you should return to normal.

Be advised that you will most likely go through periods of peeling and re-application. As I said before, it took a long time for that white skin to layer itself so it takes a little while to get rid of them as well. Give it a shot it sounds like people have had great success...many people haven't returned to the forum after trying this so I would assume they don't need to anymore ;)

I had great success and removed all the white, thick skin only with tea tree and emu oil. My foreskin have become pretty tight since I went along time without treating it.

I also was a little lazy following up after my initial success, so when the foreskin was so tight it was easier to break the skin and then the ring started forming again.

Now I use a mix of emu oil, tea tree oil and DMSO and as before it works great. I also do stretch exercises after application when the area is moist from the tea tree oil to loosen the foreskin - even conventional medicine has found this useful for phimosis. For me I made huge improvements with the stretching the first two days, now a little slower. I guess it takes some patience, and you should try not to stretch too hard so the skin cracks, as that in my experience will be a step back.
radiator 7 years ago

I also had great success in the beginning.
I used a 50/50 solution of DMSO and Tea Tree Oil.

I was also lazy once I started seeing results and then got frustrated when I stopped improving!

What helped me was keeping the foreskin clean and dry. After the initial success I now have a more concentrated Tea Tree Oil solution.

It has been working better and I will post more progress.

Cut out sugar!
gemini33 7 years ago
Has any of you cut gluten out of your diet? I read somewhere that BXO could resemble crohn´s disease and I´m pretty sure that´s caused by most probably gluten or milk allergy.
radiator 7 years ago
It is funny you mention that because I could have sworn that my BXO had a lot to do with Whey Protein. I consumed whey almost everyday for the better part of 3 years (I love the gym and most protein drinks are made from whey these days). I quit whew probably 3 months before I got rid of the BXO. I basically went through my entire diet and eliminated anything I had been doing for a long time.

With that said, I don't think stopping my consumption of whey would have reversed the BXO, but I do believe quitting it was key to becoming fully healed and a reason the BXO has not returned. I choose beef, soy, or pea protein now as my drink of choice after work outs.

I guess I never mentioned that because I can't really prove that it was the sole cause, but in my mind, I think it had a lot to do with it.
dfrance 7 years ago
I haven't changed my diet at all as of late so I tend to think this all has nothing to do with my diet. If anything I'm eating much more healthy food (mainly less fast food) than what I was eating 2-3 years ago.

The ONLY thing that coincided with the white bumps beginning to form was that I began taking multivitamins. I first noticed the bumps maybe a 1.5-2 months after I started taking them. I've been off them for about 1.5 months now and have seen no improvement (it has got worse mainly). It may be a reaction to the multivitamins? I stopped taking them because they were upsetting my stomach...
pc1890 7 years ago
An update from me.

Since last week I have made great improvements. Most of the thick, white skin is gone and the foreskin is rapidly expanding - at this rate I will be completely fine next week!

I went back just using emu and tea tree oil. I added colloidal silver to avoid secondary infections since my skin was breaking. This might have helped healing of the skin and also reducing the inflammation. I have also been taking 2 caps of the clover three times a day.

I want to thank everyone for great advice, especially dfrance!
radiator 7 years ago
I must add that this condition has been bothering me for several years now although im only 25. Lately it became very bad so something had to be done - i am glad i chose to figure it out myself rather than go to a doctor who probably would have cut the whole thing off!

Only thing annoying me now is that i totally blew it yesterday with a swedish girl that was clearly into me..
radiator 7 years ago
I'm suffering from this too, I have the white hardened tissue at the tip. The treatment seems to work for most people in days. I've been using the emu oil/tea tree oil mixture as recommended 4-5 times a day for 5 days so far. But I haven't seen any improvement at all except i think it got a little less tighter. What I am doing wrong? Could I have more information about how exactly to apply and how much to apply? I've been taking the red clover as directed on bottle 3 capsules, 3 times a day with meals (3g/day). Also does this treatment cure the phimosis as well?

Hey bud, you may have missed the other two pages...this forum goes on and on. Go back to the beginning of the thread and read everything. We have hashed most everything over and over again. I think you may be missing the DMSO in the formula you have been using. The DMSO provides extra penetration through the hardened tissue. This also helps with phimosis.

If you read everything and still have questions, let me know. Best of luck...this recipe has been saving our lives, literally.
dfrance 7 years ago
Yes ccone you asked many questions similar to mine earlier. From some people's reports it does help with the phimosis too.

I finally received my DMSO today. It is 99.9% pure DMSO and on the bottle it says 'May cause skin irritation. Avoid contact with skin and wash thoroughly after handling'. This makes me a bit cautious. Did I get the wrong stuff or is this how they all are?
pc1890 7 years ago
Hey pc1890,
The bottles do say causes skin irritation. The skin irritation is a bit like keeping your hand in a hot tub too long. It wrinkles slightly...depending on how often you put on the mixture. Other than that, I haven't noticed any effects regarding the DMSO.

I was skeptical of it at first, but do some of YOUR OWN research on it. I found out its used for many sports injuries, and I apply it for sprains or inflammation that I incur from playing basketball. Its not approved by the FDA so they do put that warning on there. Its also important to note that DMSO is a carrier of liquids. Its main purpose is being a solvent. This means that you want to wash your hands after you use it and don't mix it with anything poisonous because its will carry that poison straight into your skin and past the protective barriers of your skin.

However, as horrible as it sounds, this is why its so effective in carrying the tea tree oil into that tough white skin that seems impenetrable. Thus after research, why I decided it was worth the 'risk' of mixing tea tree oil and DMSO.

Think about the risks of not fixing the problem... circumcision, infections, sex (or lack there of), etc? I'd say a little skin irritation was well worth it considering the other options that have been tried at the Dr's office (with few results). Having had ACL surgery, I'd say getting surgery is much riskier than this approach.

Don't do anything you aren't comfortable with but take the time to do the research yourself. I'm not a doctor, but I understand what you are going through because I had it too. All I know is what worked for me seems to be helping other people.

I could be mistaken (I did hours of research online regarding BXO). Prior to this thread, no one had much of an idea on how to stop this thing/disease/virus from spreading.
dfrance 7 years ago
Cheers dfrance. Appreciate it buddy. If all of you guys have used it then it should be fine with me too. My skin is usually good with this sort of thing anyway...it's not very sensitive.

EDIT: Just used the 50/50 mixture for the first time. A tiny bit of stinging/tingling going on which is consistent with what others have said...Didn't occur immediately when I used it but about 15-30 minutes after.

Also I'm questioning the tea tree oil and DMSO mixture I have. I put half of each into a small bottle and shook the bottle however I'm finding that the two liquids do not mix very well...it is kind of like mixing oil with water. They do not want to mix even after shaking a lot (I think the DMSO is sinking to the bottom while the tea tree oil is staying up top). Did anybody else find this?
[message edited by pc1890 on Fri, 22 Feb 2013 06:13:14 GMT]
pc1890 7 years ago
I'm guessing this is normal though because the density of tea tree oil (it is an oil after all) is less than that of the DMSO. I'll just make sure I shake a lot before using every time so that the DMSO is getting used as well.

I think it is working for me actually I am seeing wrinkling of the skin. I can't wait till i start to see it peeling. I have been using every day 5 times and not skipping a day as suggested. at what point do I need to switch to DMSO mixture? Also yes some of my questions were answered but not how to apply and how much. I've just been using a cotton tip to spread the oil and it only takes like 10 seconds. Also some inevitably lands on the urethra and stings a little but I've gotten used to it. But it seems like 50% TTO would sting a lot more. Also wondering if other people needed the no-sugar diet, salmon oil and red clover to see results?
ccone 7 years ago
Ccone that sounds good! I'm using 50% TTO and 50% DMSO...been on it for 4 days now but it is really strong. I'm trying to mainly focus on the spots where the hard white skin is but often some lands on good skin and burns. My skin is getting a little infected so I'm laying off the mixture for a few days to let it heal. Have I seen any positive results? Sort of...The white spots have really come up and gone even whiter. It is really clear to see where all that hard white skin is and there is a lot more than I could see before using the mixture. I think the mixture has made them more visible. Some of the spots I have been able to peel off but this has been rare. I know it has only been 4 days but I need to stop for a while.

To dfrance:
I've been researching Tea Tree Oil. There are 2 types: Manuka and Melaleuca. I've been using the pure Melaleuca oil. Which do you suggest is better to use for this application? See the link below for a comparison...
