Erection in 22 hours may for some sound like an interesting and nice thing, but it can be worse, extremely painful.
It had a 41-year-old man from Scotland is true, when he shot the illegal drug 'melanotan' into his body with a needle to be brown on the body a little faster.
The illegal substance, however, had also an unusual severe adverse reaction to the 41-year-old man who got a hard erection in the entire 22 hours.
It writes the prestigious journal, British Medical Journal
The 41-year-old man, who had purchased the illegal drug melanotan in a bodybuilder-business, had to be treated at the hospital in order to get rid of his massive erection, and to have subdued the pain.
The synthetic hormone, which is also in the vernacular is called the 'Barbie drug' put the time in the anonymous scottish man's illness with so-called priapism, the medical term for prolonged erection.
the Case of priapism usually lasts from four to six hours, but in this case, it came almost to last for a day.
The 41-year-old patient had to endure several injections in his sore penis in order to alleviate the pain and get made his erection less. He was very close to having to have been operated, reads the explanation on the case in the British Medical Journal.
Four weeks after treatment had the 41-year-old man from Scotland problems with erection. It can be a serious side effect after treatment for priapism.
the Doctors who treated the man, has told me that they have never ever seen such a serious game of priapism. And they are now warning that people keep from engaging in illegal and non-approved products, when they try to buy products that can make them tanned.
The medical teams, who were responsible for treatment at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, was led by the doctor Barend Albert Dreyer.
the Doctors also reveals in the report that the patient through the months had made use of 'melanotan' in order to be more brown. And it emerged that the patient was quite sunburnt in the period in which he was treated.
The 41-year-old man had previously had erection for two hours in connection with that he had taken the substance melanotan. But when he last time sprayed the substance into the stomach, it went totally wrong. He penis quickly became extremely sore and was in constant erection for about 22 hours, before he went to see a doctor.
the Hormone melanotan was developed in the u.s. state of Arizona in the 1980s of kræftforskere to achieve pigmentation without solar exposure. Thus melanotan provide a protective skin, without a vinterbleg skin exposed to forårssolens radiation.
the Extra Leaf has also contacted the tv-doctor Peter Qvortrup Geisling to hear whether there have been similar cases here in Denmark.
- We know well here in Denmark, that the substance melanotan can increase both sexual desire and sexual lust. There is also someone who calls the substance for Barbie-the pill, tells Qvortrup Geisling, and adds:
- But I have not even heard about a similar case here in Denmark with increased priapism because of the substance melanotan. But there of course have been some cases.
Geisling says, moreover, that the substance melanotan may increase the risk of cancer in the pigment-cells, which, via the substance becomes overstimulated.
