I have PD and fortunately do not have difficulty with erection. I have heard about taking erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra to promote “penile health.” Does this help?

At this time there is no clear evidence to show that Viagra enhances penile health on the long-term. The other PDE-5 inhibitors, including Levitra and Cialis, have also been shown to improve blood flow into the penis and there is some suggestion that long-term use of any of these three drugs may reduce the risk of cardiac events over time. Until a properly done study is completed, I would not recommend taking daily PDE-5 medication for future penile health, as there is the possibility of side effects and this is quite an expensive medicine. On the other hand, for the man who is experiencing erectile dysfunction, daily to every other daily dosing with these medications may be in order.

Previous I have heard a lot about Peyronie’s disease, but nowhere did it mention if this is a temporary or permanent condition. Is it possible for the body to dissolve the tissue that causes the curvature?
Next I was diagnosed in 2000 with PD. My original doctor suggested I let time pass and see what happens. Luckily, I listened to others and went to a specialist. I was treated with medicine for a year and the pain eventually went away. About 3 weeks ago, I began noticing a burning pain, but it had come from time to time as I healed, but I have no other problems. My question is, can the pain that I am feeling now be the result of some remaining scar tissue loosening, or am I headed for another bout of PD?
