First of all, there is no evidence whatsoever that topical verapamil gel penetrates down to the target tissue of the scar within the tunic of your penis. Even if it did, the question would be – does it attain a satisfactory level? Therefore, there is little support to indicate that topical verapamil gel should be used. With respect to masturbation, so long as this is not causing you any additional pain and there are no excessive forces being placed on the penis, such as bending it vigorously in a direction opposite to the curve, there should be no problem with masturbation or sexual activity.
