Peyronie's Disease

| Modified on Nov 20, 2022

What Is Peyronie's Disease?

A condition that can have a number of negative effects on an individual’s overall health, Peyronie's disease involves the development of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis. This scar tissue causes a curvature in the penis, making erections difficult and even painful. While it is not entirely unusual for a man to have a curved erection, a man affected by Peyronie's disease experiences a significant bend typically associated by pain.

The onset of symptoms associated with Peyronie's disease may appear suddenly or may develop gradually. In any case, the most common symptoms include scar tissue that can be felt under the skin as flat lumps or a band of hard tissue, a significant bend to the penis, problems with erection, shortening of the penis, pain during an erection, orgasm, or anytime the penis is touched. Additionally, Peyronie's disease may prevent a man from having sex and cause stress and anxiety.

The exact cause of Peyronie's disease is not completely understood; however, a number of influencing factors have been identified. Researchers believe that Peyronie's disease is generally associated with the rupturing of tiny blood vessels in the penis, commonly caused by sex, athletic activity, or an accident. As the body heals, blood cells and other cells collect at the site and get stuck causing the development of scar tissue. Inherited traits may also be involved in the development of Peyronie's disease.

Natural Remedies for Peyronie's Disease

As Peyronie's disease is such a troubling condition, finding an effective remedy is important for developing and maintaining overall health. Many natural options offer safe, effective treatment. Castor oil applied topically to the plaque spots or areas of scar tissue dissolves the tissue and offers relief. MSM taken orally is also known for its ability to soften scar tissue. Additional treatment options include acetyl-l-carnitine, vitamin E, and DMSO.

I found out I had Peyronies about 1 year ago. I made the mistake of trying to manipulate it by rubbing it and digging away at it. This made it WORSE. So, I quit and started my online research. I was even considering buying my own shock wave machine after the big hype all over the internet about this Gainswave technology. Maybe it works, but the rip off price is outrageous for the 29 minute treatments offered.

So after dropping both of those options, I started looking into castor oil. I bought a bottle from a health food store and began wrapping my penis with folded paper towel and taping it on and then injecting the oil down into the package I made, put on briefs and went to bed. I did this for a week or so and nothing was happening...Until yesterday and today when I added a sock with rice heated in the microwave for about 20 minutes and then threw my newly purchased penis pump into the game and watched the "dent " improve slightly. I did this twice in the same day and, well I hope I am not doing any harm with the pump employed, but it seems to work. I figured, if it is hot now and softer, I may as well pull out the dent LOL. I will post in a week or so to let you know.

Castor Oil
Posted by Ashtown (Uk) on 11/18/2016

I've had Peyronies for over 4 years and it's been awful on so many levels from the pain to the psychological aspects and lets not forget the deformity itself. Some old guy on a forum pushed me to use a vacuum pump that was a disaster and took me from zero to over 90 degrees of upward curvature. This has been all consuming and virtually bankrupted me over this period.

Certain things like ginger have been useful, but every time I made progress it would seem to reverse with the smallest damage and recently I had a long bone like scarring appear along the entire length of my penis along the top. Curvature was around 45 degrees.

I discovered castor oil by chance after trying it for an eye problem and casually looking to see if it could help with Peyronies. I was hesitant to try because I know it promotes collagen and we have quite enough of that already with Peyronies, but it's been really, really good so far.

All of that hardened bone like scarring has gone after just two weeks and I cannot feel any at the top or bottom. In the middle there is still a fairly big chunk but it's much softer than before and the upward curvature has dropped to around 20 degrees.

I've been soaking the penis in a thick layer of cold pressed castor oil and then waiting a few minutes for it to partially absorb before applying a fur covered hot water bottle like kids often have that has been allowed to cool for about 20 minutes just to take the edge off the heat. I then leave it in place for up to 3 hours and it maintains a good temperature without burning if I keep it under loose tracksuit bottoms and a T-Shirt.

I do this twice a day and intend to keep going. I've had a couple false dawns in the past where I thought things would work and then progress stalled, but this seems really promising and it's so cheap. It may take months or never work entirely but so far it's about the best thing I've tried and much better than anything the doctors prescribed like Pentox.

Replied by Ashtown

Sorry for the late reply, but I've only just seen this. I am still not 100% Peyronies free at this stage, but it's down to around 10 degrees and the scarring is very jelly like with low levels of inflammation overall. I am continuing with the castor oil, but simply applying it and leaving it to absorb, which I do a couple times a day. There have been a couple occasions when I wasn't able to use castor oil for a few days and I then saw the scarring harden quite quickly, so something is definitely happening here and you need to keep going. It can be useful to apply heat first for say an hour using a hot covered hot water bottle, however I found that if the bottle is too hot it can actually cause damage. After a lot of testing I found best results from waiting 20-30 minutes after filling the bottle before applying heat to the skin and make sure the bottle has some sort of cover, so there isn't direct contact. Leave it on there for an hour or so before removing and then apply castor oil all over the penis, allowing it to absorb naturally.

Shane and Johnnie:

Just go for the highest quality natural castor oil you can find. They are all relatively cheap and 1 litre lasts me around 6 months. At the moment I'm using one from a company called Lubrisolve that I found on Amazon, but previously I had one from Naissance. Just go for the highest quality pure castor oil. It should be cold pressed and hexene free if possible. The colour is pale yellow.


Hi Ashtown, thank you for posting your replies. It has been a few years since your last post but I was hoping you might still be able to post here again.

My question : Re "I wasn't able to use castor oil for a few days and I then saw the scarring harden quite quickly"

... Do you find that the scarring still re-hardens when not using Castor Oil.

How is your progress? Has your condition improved?
I hope this message finds you well.

The problem is during bath I noticed my penis was erect and the tip of the penis curve to right side. When I move it to make it straight I felt a pain but it makes my penis straight then after touching my self and fully errect I noticed that my penis is straight like before but what I move to either side I feel pain in apart from my penis. When I touched that part just after the tip at Corpora Cavernosa I found that there is a dent inside my penis at both like circle means both side of Corpora Cavernosa upside and downside and it feels like hard tissue no sensation. When I google about this I found that yes there is a disease name peyronie's. Now I see many comments here that people cured or found some improvements from peyronies disease but before applying Castor oil I decided to see Urologist.

I went to Urologist actually he is good according to others. I told everything about my condition and he did some physical examination of everything like prostate, check peyronie or swelling. etc. After examination he said I had a little peyronie plaque on my right side and swelling and then he said I am 110% healthy. Don't do anything. When I asked him how to remove this plaque he said it will never go.

Now I didn't feel any hard tissue inside my penis but I do feel a dent round circle underneath my skin and I feel pain while errection. Actually a lot of pain, I found a this blog where people cured from peyronies by using castor oil. Now the problem is I dont know where the plaque is, my penis curve but when I move it looks straight to me but I do feel dent. I dont know what to do. I bought Castor Oil and used one time only. Any idea how to remove this dent? Is this a peyronie or I waste my time using castor oil. Any comments on my condition would be appreciated.

Novel treatment for Peyronies Disease:

Hi, My husband had been struggling with quite severe curvature and indentation of his penis for over a year. We researched all over the internet looking for treatment, relief and hope. All we found at that time were expensive oral treatments, surgery (ouch) or traction devices.

Then we discovered the benefits of using castor oil, topically (that is, rubbing it on the skin) to dissolve scar tissue and ease the pain of arthritic joints - mine. We wondered if castor oil would also work on plaque - which is also described as scar tissue.

My husband had two rather large areas of plaque in the penile shaft which were causing him pain and distress. Knowing that castor oil can do little harm topically, my husband decided to try it. So, for several weeks, before sleep, he massaged castor oil into the areas where he could feel the plaque. He also would apply a cotton bandage to keep heat and pressure on the area overnight.

Within a couple of weeks he started to notice improvement. The indentation lessened. The curvature reduced and he could physically feel the size of the two areas of plaque reducing.

He has continued to use the castor oil 3 or 4 times a week. The scar tissue that he could feel is almost gone, his penis is now almost straight and not indented. The pain is almost completely gone. He is carrying on using the castor oil and we are seeing continued improvement, week by week.

Before you spend a lot of money on proprietary compounds or consider something as drastic as surgery, which may result in having to use a prosthesis to obtain an erection, I would suggest that you invest $5 or so in a bottle of castor oil and try it.

Do some research into the healing properties of castor oil to see why it is so effective. Give it a few weeks and see if it helps you too.

This is not an overnight cure. It will take time, but I would suggest it is well worth trying.

A couple of helpful hints. Cover yourself with a towel or an old pair of pyjamas for sleeping. The oil may well stain your bedclothes.

Make sure that you can get into the bathroom to wash when your hands are oily - finding yourself with oily hands and being unable to open either the bedroom or bathroom doors is a little embarrassing.

Wow. This is actually working out really well. So I've had this issue ever since I can remember which makes me believe it is hereditary. So anyways, I started applying castor oil every single night since january 15 and than I wrap any kind of napkin around my penis to keep a bit of pressure. For the most part though it's so it doesn't get on my underwear. Its january 26 now and I can already see very good results and my penis is beginning to straighten out. This stuff works great! Also for anyone wondering theres a very good chance you'll see castor oil marketed as a laxative which it is so don't be confused. Oh, and I also apply it all over my penis... no specific reason or anything it only takes a few seconds.

Hi Mike,

So sorry for the delay in responding.

My husband's penis used to curve upwards and the tightening of the indentation also pulled the head of the penis to the left.

As Peyronie's seems to be an ongoing problem, maintenance of the castor oil treatment seems to be the way to go, for us, anyway.

So we continue with the application and massage, but not daily. More like 2 - 3 times per week to help prevent the plaque from becoming a severe problem.

As for the inflammation, no. There was no inflammation visible on his penis. However, we have used castor oil, topically, to relieve inflammation in other circumstances. For example, I have arthritic hips. Castor oil reduces the pain I have from that. I also have muscular spasms, again, castor oil helps to alleviate that pain. Also, I occasionally get red, inflamed, swollen ankles. Again, castor oil relieves the swelling, the redness and the pain.

We use the EFT mantra, "Try it on everything".

Best wishes.

Hi, I found this site and am not unsurprised by the comments.If you look at Edgar Casey's site, (Casey was a spiritual healer in the 39's in USA) he advocated castor oil packs, hence my thought to seek some info on the subject. Castor oil apparently has a unique ability to draw toxins out of the body particularly if warm. (Toxins are the cause of most ailments.) I guess the penis is a naturally warm environment anyway so the use of a hot water bottle wouldnt be required although you could try it for a hour at a time. Hope this helps.

Thank you much for this great information. Do you recommend food grade castor oil or the one that is for cosmetic and massage use (for aches and pains etc.?) I know Whole Foods carries the cosmetic/massage type but not the food grade. Also, do you recommend cold pressed or normal expeller pressed? I read an article on ncbi where they mention that if the oil is heat expelled it does not contain Riacin.

Hi, I will appreciate it very much if some one can tell me whether castor oil cured / helped Peyronie's many people or just a few lucky ones. It's not I don't believe the story that it cured some one. It could be just by chance some of the lucky ones who belong to the group of "spontaneous resolution" - only 4% of Peyronie's patients.

Thanks in advance!

Replied by David

I tried this for several weeks. Applied DMSO after each application of Castor oil to help with oil penetration. It did not help at all. Also tried Serrapeptase for a few months with no change. I believe the scarred tissue inside has turned almost bone like preventing the full and even swelling. I can't imagine anything but surgery can help at this point and I am not going there.


Even if castor oil could dissolve scar tissue, I thought it would be impossible for it to penetrate the skin and reach the PD plaque.


Did you start your DMSO and Castor Oil treatment after the plaque in your penis had hardened... or before, when the damaged area would have probably been softer and fibrous. If I remember correctly, it can take about 6 months to 1 year for the plaque to harden. If you applied your DMSO and Castor Oil before the plaque hardened, it would be difficult to determine how effective your chemical treatment would be.

Replied by Mj

Hi All,

Well let me start by saying PD sucks, it's very emotional disorder, that being said your not going to die from it, good news :). It's more then just breaking down the plaque with Castor Oil, which can soothe the area and yes it feels good not a bad thing. The cause of it is do to immune response and the bodies over all production typically of TGFB-1 which you can test for in your blood for. The higher the marker of this more likely you are going to keep producing scar tissue and your system is not going to down regulate TIMP's which block MMP'S from eating or if you will dissolving the scar tissue over time. If this is all foreign to you me too. Be patient with this condition if you just got it welcome to the club. If your down about this it's normal. Just cheer up sex is not over just delayed a bit. You will appreciate women in a whole new way, promise. Enzymes could help a bit to dissolve fibrin and or scar tissue although it's like a war with immune system. You need to boost it first and nothing wrong with enzymes too.

Here is some good things to start you off with.

1) DMSO is great for inflammation although I'm using it at the same time you use castor oil simply because you are doing two different things, DMSO is a solvent which can help draw things into blood stream quickly so wash hands keep surface area clean and don't add anything like essential oils and or crazy items. when you use castor it draws toxins out and softens skin etc., So you are doing two different things at the same time, you want a systematical approach at the same time. You want 1 band playing same song at a time no too different ones.

2) You can use DMSO with SOD from melon, a capsule open and apply to skin.

3) Serraflayzme empty stomach away from food 3x daily or as recommeneded by dr.

4) L-carnatine tartrate form or proplinate 2 grams that about 4 - 500mg tabs caps empty stomach, mean no food for 1 hour. this will help the pain and inflammation.

5) Bromaline enzyme again around 1.5 grams or 1,500 mg emepty stomach.

6) Boost your immune system herbs like propolis 1,000 mg's a day

7) Andrographis 1 capsule daily

8) Ginseng Korean 1 capsule something good quality.

9) Garlic fresh good to eat will boost immune system. Can get order free.

10) Exercise more yes, good things don't be lazy and cry about forget about it as they say in Brooklyn.

11) Stretch penis outward hold at base count to 10 seconds do 3 times day every other day. Pull out slow dont attach a building or tow truck slow easy it's your man hood respect it.

12) Shower place a wash cloth on penis and let heat hit area for a few mins and then apply your DMSO w/ SOD.

13) Seek help don't be shy this is a condition not so much as a disease. You will stabilize yourself over time and yes, the condition is like a roller coaster ups and downs, don't worry you will adjust and it will be okay. Get love and support and if your partner doesn't get it or feel for you screw them, you will find someone who does. It's your life and things happen you will be okay.

14) CO-Q10 200-300 mgs

15) Fish oil Omega 3 2 grams +

16) Grape seed ok 150 mgs +

17) Need to get better erection failing you go for L-Citrulline 1 gram up to 3 grams before boom boom will give you natural wood safe unless you have a medical condition then get help. This will increase nitric oxide.

This is a good start and always seek medical advice for supplement health, this is some info to get you on track.

Is it safe to have intercourse after using castor oil topically for peyronies disease?

Replied by Hailey

Yes, topical castor oil use and intercourse are not contraindicated. But some would say that oils should not be used with condoms because of the risks of them breaking from the combination of plastic and oil.

The only other concern is that intra-vaginal use of castor oil can cause a laxative effect.

Hi David, My husband had an area of thick, wide plaque at the base of his penis, and another thick and wide area towards the head of his penis. The castor oil did reduce both areas in width and thickness. The curvature reduced. The indentations went away and the curve to the side also went away. It seems that sometimes the plaque regrows, so we keep using the castor oil. To answer some other questions, yes we use heat, even using just a warm washcloth to wrap the penis after application of the oil. Sometimes he'll apply a cloth soaked in oil and bandage it on, overnight. As the plaques have reduced and he now has NO restriction or pain with erections or ejaculation - which was the problem in earlier times. He's also started to use a suction cup device to extend and further straighten his penis. It seems PD is a chronic condition, with no easy or fast answer, but there is hope, there is relief and there is very pleasurable sexual activity.

Hi Twinsauntymom, I am glad that your husband had good results by using castor oil. My scar tissue is a long cord that covers the entire shaft (from glans to base). The cord is about 1/4" wide and a bit less than 1/4" thick, like an electrical wire under the skin. I have an upward curvature about 32 degrees. From your description of your husband's PD condition, he had two plaques, one near base the other near glans. Did they both go away after the castor oil treatment? I also have a slight indentation because the scar tissues are pulling. I have been rubbing castor oil for about 2 months. I have not seen any results. I am also trying to use DMSO in the same time. I believe DMSO can transport / deliver the castor oil to the plaque. Thanks in advance.

Hi John,

It seems that this is a chronic and progressive condition. Our experience has been that diligent application of the castor oil, with warmth and wrapping the shaft of the penis and just leaving it alone for a while to work, seems to be the best way to reduce the thickness and width of the plaques. Unfortunately, I have to say that when he's managed to get rid of one plaque, another one starts to form - maybe in a different area.

So you keep going.

We haven't used DMSO, just castor oil, a warm or hot flannel pad soaked in oil to keep the castor oil on the area, and a cotton bandage to wrap the whole shaft of the penis to keep the pad in place. Perhaps overnight.

As for penetration of the oil, castor oil has very small molecules which easily penetrate the skin. I have topically applied castor oil to my hips to greatly relieve arthritis pain in my joints. I am not a skinny person, so the oil is getting in there somehow. You may find this link to be informative.

I spent thousands of dollars on doctors for that wart and then read about a simple home remedy Apple cider vinegar with (mother).

My husband has Peyronies. His symptoms sound like your husband. I've read there are many causes. He was on a high blood pressure medicine, for 20 years, but a year ago added large amounts of Vitamin C, and collegen powder. 4 months later, the Peyronies developed. The first two have been associated with Peyronies, and I've read it's a collagen build up. Did you husband consume any of those products?

Hi Donna,

No, he hadn't taken any of those products at all. His Peyronie's was caused by injury, we believe. He's continuing with the castor oil treatments, maybe once every two or three weeks, but has now added traction treatment using either a vacuum pump or weights to help straighten the curvature - with considerable success. We're also taking small amounts of Borax each day which seems to help break down his plaque and my painfully arthritic hips. Please see the articles on Borax on this site for how to take it.

I wish you and your husband good luck in your search for relief from this distressing and painful condition.

Serrapeptase, a protease enzyme, can cure Peyronie's disease. It does this by dissolving the scar tissue. This was an accidental discovery. I took Serrapeptase to remove plaque from my carotid arteries which were 40 percent blocked. Not only did it clear the carotids, but my Peyronie problems disappeared, too! I don't think it was spontaneous. A childhood scar that I had on my leg practically disappeared, as well. More recently, I had a deep cut on my forefinger that required 5 stitches. That scar has virtually disappeared, too.

Plaque is held together by fibrin, which is a protein. Serrapeptase dissolves that protein. Blood clots are also held together by fibrin. After clearing up these problems, I continue to take Serrapeptase as a "longevity pill", because blood clots are what cause heart attack and strokes. Blood clots can also be produced by so-called sticky platelets. Ordinary aspirin takes care of that and is often prescribed following a heart attack or stroke.

A single 120,000 SPU daily capsule of Serrapeptase, plus 81 mg of aspirin, does the trick. Doctor's Best brand of Serapeptase is one such source.

Caution: Serrapeptase MUST be taken on an empty stomach -- not having eaten for several hours -- in order to be effective. Serrapeptase is an enzyme, not a drug, and there are no side effects other than possible diarrhea if you take too much. For some people, 40,000 SPU daily (low dose) is all that can be tolerated.

Slow digestion, acid reflux or other digestive issues can spoil the uptake of Serrapeptase. So it may not work for everyone. The problem is not Serrapeptase. It's the blocked uptake. Then again, everyone's body chemistry is different. There are no guarantees. But enzyme therapy, which is widely used in the Orient, is worth a try.

This used to be my problem as a school child. I wore normal old school (white underwear). During puberty and I would get erections in class contantly as normal kids do, well it always went to the left because it had to pick a direction in my pants. Because of that constant happening for me when I was naked and got an erection it would always go to the left slightly in a curve. This stopped when I became more hippie style and stopped wearing underwear. I would get hardons but it wouldnt be so resticted by the underwear and it became straighter and so then I helped it along by trying (not too hard) to straighten by bending it back whenever I got a hardon.

Vitamin K2 MK4

Vitamin K2 MK4 for Peyronie's?

I have recently learned about Vitamin K2 MK4 while looking for a way to decalcify my pineal gland. Articles I have read claimed that it redistributes calcium in soft tissue. The effective dose in Japanese studies is reported to be 15mg, three times a day. I have no idea if it will help with Peyronie's, but if I had it, I would give it a try. For more information, look it up in your favorite search engine.
