dear, give me a moment

Dear customer, it is a pleasure to serve you, Today I want to tell you that penile pain of this type is closely related to highly energetic sexual intercourse or trauma triggered by extreme masturbation, the recommendation in these cases is to start with analgesic and anti-inflammatory treatment such as ibuprofen in soft capsules of 600 mg every eight hours for three days accompanied by adequate sexual rest for at least three to five days approximately, It may be helpful to start cold therapy by placing local ice for five minutes in the morning and evening which will provide a potent anti-inflammatory action locally, with these recommendations the situation should improve satisfactorily. However, I would like you to keep me abreast of your health situation in the coming days to know about your progress; it will be a pleasure to assist you and guide you in everything I can.
