When his penis began to swell up, became painful and some parts turned black, the man went to King George’s Medical University in Lucknow, stated a recent media report. Doctors highlighted that the man did not have any drug allergies. A series of tests conducted on him showed that he did not suffer from any sexually transmitted infections.

A medical case report revealed that the patient was diagnosed as suffering from allergic contact dermatitis and gangrene of the penis which means parts of his penis started rotting away. It was observed that the new condom brand had a typical medication, benzocaine which, according to doctors, is used for extended pleasure latex condoms for elongating the duration of sexual intercourse and decrease premature ejaculation.
