    This stuff burns to hell and back. During the first cycle I couldn’t sleep for 2 days from the discomfort. DO NOT wear tights jeans because the pressure and rubbing makes for a bad day. Overall the application is easy but be sparing with how much you apply. The gw gets red, scans and falls off. Where I have no idea. Probably out the bottom of my jeans pants. Weird day for someone else.

    Did as directed, on the am of the 3rd day on the second application, I could not take the burning. So I gave up. Maybe I quit to soon. Maybe I needed my penis to stop burning.
