How to Deal with Sex Problems/Benzocaine


Hi I'm 24 and healthy I've never had erection problems until a couple months back I used a delay spray containing benzocaine since then I've been unable to get a proper erection and still feel less sensitive. The spray was only 7.5% benzocaine and I only applied 5 sprays as it stated no more than 8 I was wondering if everything would return to normal as these sprays are supposed to be considered safe to use.

That should not affect you for more than a few hours.  Benzocaine is the same anesthetic that you can buy to put on a toothache.  It wears off in a few hours.  Just don't use the spray anymore and you should be just fine.  Find other ways to deal with your premature ejaculation.
