A Tiktok that has gone viral has doctors warning people to not try this method as it can be “extremely dangerous for a number of reasons”.
With 3.5 million views Tiktok user Jerry Mal tried a method he saw in a movie where you put erection cream on your lips to make them bigger.
In the video Jerry attempted to put the cream on for five minutes however he only made three minutes because the tingling had turned into a bad burning sensation.
Despite the bad burning Jerry’s lips did look bigger, however is it really worth the risk?
Dr Ross Perry a GP & Medical Director told Metro “Putting erection cream on your lips in a bid for a fuller pout is utterly ridiculous and can be extremely dangerous for a number of reasons.”
He warned that you could suffer an allergic reaction like stinging, soreness, blisters, uncomfortable swelling and cold sores (if you’re prone to them).
“Other side effects from the absorption of the cream as it goes into the body can create headaches, blood pressure problems and even possible heart problems.”
Next time you watch a Tiktok lifehack make sure you do your research before trying it out and if it’s not obvious enough yet… don’t put erection cream on your lips!
