Dr. Levine answers: If you can obtain collagenase, which to my knowledge is not at all available, it would be absolutely contraindicated to place this agent on the skin as it could cause a significant injury in that area. Injectable collagenase, in time will hopefully be available in an upcoming multi-center study to determine whether it can result in a chemical breakdown of a Peyronie’s plaque, but these studies have not begun.

Previous When I take Viagra I notice that it gives me a full erection and improves my “weak” erection from my Peyronie’s disease. I only took it a couple of times and then heard not to take Viagra and stopped. It seems to help my erection and makes sex possible for me. Can Viagra make the disease worse or do damage?
Next Will the combination of Dupuytren’s contracture and Peyronie’s disease make a cure or improvement less likely?
