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...

To ccone,
What mixture are you currently using? If the skin is really wrinkly, you can go ahead and give it a day or two of rest and see if any of that skin is getting ready to peel. There isn't really a special amount that I put on. I usually would use a q-tip for application and just make sure you soak the areas you are focusing on, decently.

I would absolutely follow the no sugar and no FAKE (I'm heavily linking fake sugar this) sugar. I thought the red clover was instrumental in stopping this problem at the source, especially if you have any itching. The tea tree oil gets rid of the current issue, but our goal is to make sure it comes back.

To pc1890,
I use tea tree oil from the melaleuca tree. I order it from Naturessunshine.com because I trust their quality. Make sure you are cleaning up your diet and avoiding the fake sugar especially. Its very necessary...you can't just do the tea tree oil and expect everything to go away. You have to give your body a chance to heal from the inside.
dfrance 8 years ago
I agree with dfrance about the diet. Tea tree may fix things, but if you do not clean up your diet it will eventually come back.

It might be hard to stay away from sweets, chips and pizza, but if you supplement with plant derived minerals I promise you will stop having the munchies. I now can forget to eat because I do not have cravings anymore!
I recommend the beyond tangy tangerine!

Also be aware of all things that cause inflammation in the body, like nitrites in processed meat, burned fat and meat, oils...etc. Also be aware of foods you react badly too. With skin problems gluten is the usual suspect.
radiator 8 years ago
to pc1890 - the treatment sounds very promising it must have brought up the white parts previously hidden under the surface.

to dfrance - I am using 3 tablespoons emu oil and 15 drops malaleuca TTO. I've just about used up that entire quantity too. I'll give it a rest for a couple days as suggested. In the meantime I'll order DMSO

I've been following all the recommendations except salmon oil I couldn't find one labelled pure. But do you just mean no artificial and refined sugars? Are honey and natural sugars are ok?

Well since I stopped using the mixture the skin has been peeling like others have said. New skin is exposed and coming through which is great! The bulk of the hard white spots are still there unfortunately. The skin is still peeling so it may take longer for those spots to go with more applications of the mixture. I'll keep you guys posted on how I go but I'll probably need to add some emu oil as I think the 50/50 TTO+DMSO is too harsh for me for regular use anyway.
pc1890 8 years ago
Yes natural sugars are just fine.

Remember it took a long time for that white skin to form. The longer and more serious your condition is the longer I'd bet it takes to get rid of it.
dfrance 8 years ago
i just want to report that after stopping the treatment for less than 24 hours the skin seemed to tighten. also I have pain on the tip from tightness that I didn't have until I started the treatment. it really did work very well to provide relief. So I will continue the regime until I can start the DMSO treatment.

I read that the sulfur in the DMSO makes skin more permeable so toxins go out and nutrients in. Also without natural sulfur skin loses elasticity, becomes inflexble and scar tissue forms. this explains the cause of the phimosis. In my case I had phimosis first then balantis due to inability to clean under the foreskin.

also regarding the DMSO it needs to be 99.9% pure to use on humans and in a glass bottle to avoid leaching of plastics. They say more than 0.1% impurity can cause health problems.

In my country (Australia) the medical cartel made it illegal to sell 99.9% DMSO. (meanwhile steroids and body mutilation are the legally prescribed treatments - go figure). I think MSM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methylsulfonylmethane) might work in it's stead though, its DMSO(O2) DMSO with another oxygen. Also because it's crystalline it might dissolve better in the TTO. I might have to use it since I can't get 99.9% DMSO here

Ccone I live in sydney and purchased DMSO. I went to a chemist and asked for it but they said I needed a prescription...so I bought it online from vitamingrocer.com.au.

99.9% Pure Dmso...comes in a glass bottle and cost roughly 28 bucks for 8 fl oz. (Or around 230ml)

They are an australian site but get their ingredients from USA. Took about 20 days to get here.

Here is an update from me. I'm on day 7 =)

Days 1 and 2: I used the mixture at least 4 times each day. Not much pain or discomfort compared to what was to come.

Days 3 and 4: I used the mixture only once each day due to an increase in the pain and discomfort. Skin started peeling slightly.

Days 5 and 6: Didn't use the mixture at all due to the pain. The pain peaked on these days and it was because of freshly exposed skin after peeling. A lot of peeling occurred initially on the skin that didn't have any hard white spots. Eventually the skin began peeling near the hard white spots. Then some of the white spots began peeling too.

Day 7: Didn't use the mixture again. After having a long hot shower probably 40-50% of all the hard white spots have peeled off. I peeled off a lot of them manually and the warm shower definitely helped in softening the skin.

That's where I'm at right now. Super thrilled about the progress. Considering I only used the mixture for 4 days I think it has been really effective. I've peeled off some of the hard white skin in large pieces and I've noticed how HARD and INELASTIC that skin was...feels kinda like a really hard rubber! Underneath that hard white skin is new skin that is soft! I know for sure now that the balantis has caused the phimosis because I'm already noticing that the foreskin is a lot more flexible.

Really great news. I hope the progress continues and I'm so grateful I found this forum/thread =)
pc1890 8 years ago
Great news pc1890!

I have had, as mentioned before, great success with only tea tree oil and emu oil. I did not notice any increase in effect by using dmso, only burning when using to much.

The dmso I bought was on a plastic bottle, so I might want to try another for maximum effect in the future?

However, I am still on my way to recovery with the regiment I am on.

I now think it's sad with all the people who does not know about this remedy :(
radiator 8 years ago
thanks for that link pc1890 one site said they used to sell 99.9% DMSO (http://www.plantessentials.com.au/store/dmso.html) but they stopped due to government harassment. btw thats awesome news on your progress!

I was only able to find 70% but it was made from 99.9% and diluted down with pure water. Apparently it has to be that dilute to use it on skin anyway. I've been using 70%DMSO and 100%TTO in a half/half mixture for 4 days these are my results:

Day 1: Used once for the day due to intense pain I didn't think I could stand putting it on again.

Day 2: Woke up pain was gone so I applied again. Again intense pain the whole day about the same as yesterday.

Day 3: Woke up pain was gone again. I applied again and this time the pain was about twice as bad as the first two days. Later on in the day I noticed some wrinkling but also considerable redness in one spot. Like it got burnt from too much TTO. Problem is it doesn't mix in the bottle say I take liquid from both layers into a eye-dropper and drip onto cotton tip the entire contents to try mix it. But it didn't work this time it seems.

Day 4. Today. There is still pain from yesterday. Today I applied only 70% DMSO. Only mild pain, still incredibly red on one spot. I think the wrinkling increased but no peeling yet. the redness is a bit worrying though I don't know if I should keep going

to pc1890 - did you have any redness accompany the pain before it started to peel? also before said you had trouble mixing the oil and dmso before how did you end up doing it?

to radiator - you mentioned you had results with the TTO and emu oil mixture. did that mixture alone initiate peeling? If so after how many days did it occur?

Hey ccone. I had a lot of redness and plenty of soreness. This was both before and after the skin peeled. hard to explain but i think they were burns from the tea tree oil initially. I may have been using the mixture too often though. I had trouble sleeping due to the irritation/soreness down there so I haven't been game enough to re-use it although I probably need to in order to get rid of all the tough skin.

I had the same mixing problem. I found a small bottle and put half of each in it. Before applying i shook the bottle for a long time to make sure i was getting both TTO and DMSO. So just shake a lot and it should be 'mixed' for at least a minute before the liquids separate again.
pc1890 7 years ago
For me TTO and EO has worked wonders alone. I have tried with dmso as well, but if i used to much I too got the burning, so I washed it away immediately.

With TTO and EO it took me maybe a week for it to scale significantly. In the first two-three days it is easy to be fooled as the areas are dying off, making it looks worse than it was, but hang in there.

I was traveling last week and forgot my toilet bag at the hotel - it started itching tremendously! Luckily i got the bag back today!
radiator 7 years ago
thanks for the help - the shaking does help if you work fast. I found that the intense pain is only the first few times then it's nowhere near as bad. so I've been applying the 50/50 TTO/DMSO mixture 3 times daily for the past 4 days. I have noticed some minor peeling or scaling on the outside of the skin on the red areas. I've noticed the foreskin hole get smaller and tightness discomfort now though not sure if it's because I ran out of red clover or stopped applying emu oil. but will try getting back on both. hopefully it is in the initial stages now of peeling the skin to expose the white spots - seems promising

hey guys. I wasn't sure if the treatment was working I was getting some minor peeling but not directly on the white ring. I'm not sure if this is what was supposed to happen I thought the white ring would peel off in large pieces as people here have described. I lost confidence of the treatment because no-one replied to say either yes it's working or no it's not. I honestly can't tell but I thought it would peel more and more each day and be obvious if it was working.

anyway I decided to try treatment from a local homeopathist who said I have to stop the tea tree oil as it will interfere with the homeopathic drugs. I really wanted to pursue both treatments but I could only choose one. So now I am off it until the homeopathic treatment runs it's course (he said 2 months), I hope I made the right decision. Anyway I took a photo when It was peeling I would be ever grateful if one of you guys who were cured could have a look at it and tell me if the treatment looked like it was working or not.

Ccone, I don't think that it is going to work exactly the same for everyone. I'd say use it for at least 2-3 weeks before you give up on it. If your skin is peeling then that is a good sign. If I could describe how the mixture worked for me I'd say that it caused the skin to peel (any redness was probably a result of new/fresh skin being revealed). By causing the skin to peel it made the hard white areas also peel...for me the mixture made the skin softer and clearer. It's kinda like the skin is newer/fresher now because the old skin has been removed.

I was lucky to see results pretty soon but it all depends how severe it is. My foreskin only just recently got back to full health (in terms of there being no irritation from the treatment)...took a long time to fully heal after using the treatment but I'm better for it. There is still 2 hard spots left that I want to get rid of...so I'll use the mixture again.

Thanks for this treatment and the experiences with it. I'm about to start using it. I'm not 100% sure what I have to do with a bottle of vitamine A and 100% PURE salmon oil. dfrance, can you be more specific? I will report any progress of the treatment.

Thanks in advance,

What do you mean you aren't sure what you have to do with it? Take it! Its all about bringing your body back into balance...start eating a healthy balanced diet. If you put antifreeze into your gas tank, your car is going to run like crap or not at all. Its the same rule of thumb when you stick crappy food into your body's system. Fuel it right, live well. :)

I just started using this 'mix' (tea oil and emu oil)
will try it with dmso, but gotta wait couple weeks for it to arrive.

Just one question though, should i avoid the cream touching the glans? I don't have the BXO/LS on the glans.
jomppa 7 years ago
and one more question, would it be safe to use tea tree oil without the DMSO?
jomppa 7 years ago
jomppa - it's impossible to avoid it touching the glans, it won't do any harm except maybe some irritation. the DMSO helps penetration into the skin, its safe to use without it

dfrance- if youre still there could I have more information of the diet you were on? are alcohol, caffeine, gluten, ok or not? did you avoid all processed foods? I'm going back on the TTO now, I used it for over a month as you can see from my previous post without any improvement but will try again for longer this time. I'm taking lots of supplements now to try fight it off - Salmon oil, Red clover, B12, Probiotics, Chelated Magnesium, Kelp/Iodine, General Immune tablets, Zeolite, MSM organic sulfur. Getting back into martial arts for regular excercise. Eating organic foods as much as possible, drinking raw unpasteurised unhomogenised milk, using celtic sea salt and himalayan salt instead of regular artificial salt, having a green smoothie daily. I'm thinking of cutting out gluten, caffeine and alcohol. Don't know what else to do. Also I've ordered this salve lichen-sclerosus/..." rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank">http://www.aidanceproducts.com/skin-repair/lichen-sclerosus/.... which contains TTO among other natural ingredients which help skin repair. I wish the best of luck to everyone and if you have success please report back to help others

I noticed alcohol seemed to make the symptoms a little worse. The big factor for me was to quit drinking dairy products..especially whey protein. Keep your diet as natural as you can.

Are you sure you are using high quality TTO? Try Naturessunshine's it is the best quality I've found.

Question about food diet Is dark bread ok? im kinda like eating bread on mornings and evenings and im having hard time thinking other what i could eat on the mornings beside eggs, cause everything seems to have sugar nowadays <.<

The ones im eating seem to have 3g sugar to 100g. dark bread ok or should i change it to something else?

And sausages seems also to have sugar on them, should i not use them?

Hi all.

Thanks for continuing to post to this thread. I have made a lot of progress.

After the initial wave of results I was disappointed when my healing started to slow.

If you experienced this, try adding more Tea Tree Oil to the solution. This helped me.

Also a few tips for anyone using the treatment.

1. Shake the mixture prior to applying it. It seems the DMSO and Tea Tree Oil do tend to separate.

2. Keep the area clean and dry.

3. Diet is key. You need to alkalize your system because it is in a state of dis-ease. Cut out animal protein, dairy and other acid forming foods and eat simple. Greens like kale and spinach, brown rice, and other whole fruits and vegetables. CHEW. I can not stress this enough. The glands in your mouth produce enzymes that greatly enhance digestion.

Be moderate with any diet change!
If you eat a lot of red meat, try eating a little less. Do not stress your body by diving into an intense diet.

Sugar is a culprit but it is not the ultimate cause. If this is a problem you suffer with think about the long term. You need to look holistically at your health.

This is not a quick fix, it will take time!

Be patient and healthy,

A update from me.

I have gotten big progress and now the white skin is almost fully gone. i used the Tea oil emu oil mix first, but it took like +2 weeks so the skin would peel. (Yes i was impatient, but i think anyone wants to get rid of this disease asap. :) ) So i gave the TTO and DMSO mix a try for and applied it about 4 times a day.

After about a week the skin became hard and the tip of the foreskin became white color and really sore. Gave it a couple days rest and only applied emu oil to it for couple of days. Then foreskin got really tight like the size of a little finger.

The next day it finally happened the skin peeled and lot of it and now the there is no white skin *hurray* just that foreskin is still quite tight but will stretch it so it should be fine. (had a tight foreskin even before this disease).

For a diet i mostly just ate eggs, salad with chicken, pasta with bacon sauce (cream, onions and bacon) and ate the vitamins: salmon oil, red clover and vitamin-a. with coffee i use sugar, but i changed it to sweetener.

I just wanna say thanks to anyone for the information and help i've gotten from this site.

Hope you all get rid of this disease! :)
