A physician, Dr Aigbe Eghosa has advised Nigerians to shun the use of penis enlargement creams.
He disclosed this in a press release obtained from PUNCH HealthWise.
Eghosa said that penis enlargement creams do not enlarge penises and may have side effects.
The physician revealed that though penis enlargement creams are beneficial to:
1. Children with small penises and are going for surgery.
2. Children with certain penis conditions.
Yet, in the two circumstances, Eghosa said that the creams are only used for a short period of time.
The physician advised men looking to grow their penises to do so naturally. Among the natural techniques are:

i. Weightloss- which helps to make the penis appear bigger due to belly fat reduction.
Eghosa maintained that even such techniques do not necessarily enlarge the penis.
His words: “No cream works in adults. It’s a scam and people are falling for it. Generally, the penis stops growing once it’s puberty and this is around 18 years. If the penis were to be growing even after this time, then my grandfather’s penis will be as long as an electric pole.
“We use penile enlargement cream or injectable in children that have a small penis and are going for surgery. It’s used for a short period and has some side effects,” he said.
He hinted at the possibility of mistaken a normal-sized penis for a big sized penis.
According to Eghosa, some men believe that their penises are small due to what they have seen, when in fact they are normal-sized penises.
He emphasized that the length of the penis is not the only factor for pleasure but the width.
Eghosa continued; “Some men use the cream because they believe it will increase the length of their penises.

“Note that it’s not only length that determines pleasure, the width is also important. In the quest for a solution, they go for these creams that do not work.
“There are some pills that enhance erection. The stronger the erection, the bigger the penis and even longer. This has not increased the size of the penis but only enhanced them to have a good erection,”
Eghosa further said that these creams do not necessarily have any side effects. This is because they contain parent forms of testosterone discouraged for adults.
“The amount absorbed through the skin is usually minimal and so they may not have any side effect. Parenteral form of testosterone is discouraged for adults,”
“The average penis should be from 9.1cm and above if the penis is not erect and, 13.1cm and above when erect.
“Any penile length lower than the values given above is abnormal or smaller.
“It’s important to note that there is no relationship between the length when it’s not erect and when it’s erect. That is the penis can appear small when it is not erect but has a normal length when erect,” he concluded.
