In November 2004, I noticed a small bending to the left of the penis. I am currently taking vitamin E 600 units daily and I rub hydrocortisone 2% on the penis every morning. Do you think that the bending will get worse or will it stop?

It may be that you have an early form of Peyronie’s disease, which is either spontaneously recovering which occurs in less than 10% of cases, or may be responding to the oral and topical medicines that you are using. Unfortunately, there is very little evidence that vitamin E works at all and should be used at 400 units daily to avoid the reported vascular complications. Topical hydrocortisone is likely to have no benefit, and I do not recommend using it at all.

Previous I’m a 57 year old physician with an inflammatory plaque in my mid shaft of the penis but no curvature yet. I’ve been using Caverject for about 5 years with no side effects and had some penile trauma about 2 months ago. I’m currently taking vitamin E daily and ibuprofen without any results yet. Would a trial of ultrasound therapy be worth considering?
Next Is it safe to take L-arginine and low dose daily Cialis (2.5 or 5mg) at the same time? How long do you recommend I taking L-arginine? Is the recommended dose of L-arginine 1000mg twice a day or is it 500mg twice a day?
