An unnamed man in the South Pacific islands had his penis rot after he injected it with petroleum jelly in a bid to make it bigger, doctors have said.
According to doctors, the man had visited the hospital feeling sick and complaining of itchiness on his penis for five days.
When asked about his sexual behavior, he recalled injecting himself with petroleum jelly ( the main ingredient in Vaseline) about two years ago.
Doctors said the penile shaft was ‘severely damaged due to an ailment known as Fournier’s gangrene, with rotting flesh and a build-up of pus.
Fournier’s gangrene is a life-threatening infection that causes skin and tissues on the genitals to rot.
He (the man) was rushed into emergency surgery, for two more operations in order to save the remains of his genitals.
