  • Canister method tape PEEL

    おはよう! So I'm new to restoring and have been at it less than a month. I am restoring to get rid of hairy shaft, just in case you wanted to know. I have been using the canister method due to lack of skin. So today at work, I had to run up flights of stairs quickly with a fire extinguisher. In short, stair-skipping caused the skin that was in contact with the tape to peel of some of my skin it seems. Where the tape was I have a red mark that looks like a carpet burn. No bleeding. Just curious if this has happened to anyone else. Hopefully just some antibiotic cream and time will heal without scaring.

    Hope you're OK... I can relate a bit to some of what you're experiencing, not to that extent though. At least I don't think??? Anyway, when I started a few months back I was using taped canisters too. I wore mine to work one day that was particularly busy. ( concessions) I was running around like crazy and kneeling and standing. I didn't notice any discomfort until I showered and removed my device. I had a red line across the top of my shaft that was slightly tender. I attributed it to being a point of maximum tension and that was where my skin was stretching a bit too quickly. It wasn't what I would describe as painful, just irritating for awhile. I'm trying to remember man, I'm sorry. I think it must've taken about 3-4 days to go back to normal. I only took one day off from restoration... Again, hope you're OK and back at it... KOT

      Yeah it seems to be getting better, scab came off in the shower and now I just have a pink mark where it happened, probably will fade in time. I had a similar situation to you with the red mark that took some days to go away. That canister method has more risks than I initially recognized, I guess we just gotta be careful at work. Hope you can move on to a device soon!
