When I first got diagnosed with BXO, I didn’t think it was a big deal. My doctor just gave me some steroid creams and told me we’ll re-evaluate in a couple of weeks. As someone who has had eczema his whole life, this didn’t seem out of the ordinary.
It wasn’t until I got home and started Googling it that I realized how serious it could be.
Let’s face it, as men, if there’s one place we cannot handle being at full health it’s between the legs. We love that thing! The idea that it might be compromised is a mini horror story, one that we’d rather not think about.
Two things that alarmed me about the diagnosis were:
- It required the long-term usage of steroid creams to keep the condition under control. Long-term usage of any prescription medicine is not a good thing.
- If the steroid creams failed, circumcision was the only option left. I made a pact in my mind that I was never getting circumcised. That’s where my journey into researching BXO began.
When I began my Googling journey on BXO, what I noticed was there wasn’t much information on it. Studies were scarce. Most doctors had accepted that circumcision cured the disease, so there wasn’t any reason to keep studying it. Circumcision is not life-threatening, nobody ever died from it, people circumcised as adults still go on to live happy lives, so what more research is needed to be done? Better to spend our resources on cancer and diabetes research, right?
I guess they have a point, but that’s not where my head was at. I wanted to find a way to cure it safely, without long-term meds and without mutilating myself.
The wonderful thing about the internet is, there’s always something on there, as long as you look hard enough. I did eventually find a few forums and blogs where people talked about their BXO experience. And I learned that there was anecdotal evidence that the skin could be cured naturally and safely.
Essentially, BXO is a skin condition. It is not an autoimmune disease as once previously thought. It is more like an allergy. If you can clear up the root cause of the allergic reaction, you can alleviate the symptoms. Once you’ve alleviated the symptoms, you can go about reversing the damage it has done, which has most likely occurred over a number of years.
What this means is we need to peel away the BXO skin, and allow new fresh skin to generate underneath. What I’ve learned is, this is a long process. If you’re BXO isn’t too advanced, it might only take a few months. If you’ve let your BXO worsen over many years, it can similarly take many years to heal. But in my opinion this is all worth it.
