Peyronie’s disease which causes abdominal curvature of the penis can be treated, but it is always not necessary. This is because, the disease may disappear spontaneously after a few months or years. Nevertheless, treatment may include administering medicines or performance of surgery as guided by the urologist.
Some remedies that can be used in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease are:
- Betamethasone or Dtesthasone
These medications are typically administered through an injection directly into the fibrosis to reduce the inflammation and destroy the plaques that cause the abdominal curvature of the penis.
Treatment with vitamin E tablets or ointments is widely used since this vitamin stimulates degradation of the fibrous plaque which will decrease the curvature.
When is surgery required?
When the penile curvature is too large and causes pain or makes sexual intercourse impossible, it may be necessary to perform surgical treatment to remove the fibrous plate. Surgery may have the side effect of decreasing the penis length by 1 to 2cm.
Application of shockwaves, using a laser or a vacuum reaction devices are some of the options for therapeutic treatment for peyronie’s disease, instead of opting for surgery.
Home treatment option
One form of home treatment for Peyronie’s disease is horsetail tea, which has anti-inflammatory action.
- 1 tablespoon horsetail
- 180 ml water
Boil water and the herb for 5 minutes then let it sit for 5 minutes. Filter and take the tea while still warm, 3 times a day.
Another alternative natural remedy of peyronie’s disease is using herbs that will stimulate blood circulation and decrease production of fibrosis plaques such as preparation of ginkgo biloba, siberian ginseng or blueberry.
Homeopathic treatment option
Homeopathic treatment for Peyronie’s disease can be done with silica and fluid acid-based medicines, but also with the drug Staphysagria 200 CH, which is taken 5 drops twice a week, or with Thuya 30 CH, 5 drops 2 times a day for 2 months. These medicines should be taken according to the prescription of the urologist.
