The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given marketing authorization to the gel that promises to get a patient’s erection within ten minutes.
What is the Complete Story?
According to a Consultant Urologist at University College London, David Ralph, an over-the-counter gel, Eroxon, will be applicable for mild to moderate Erectile Dysfunction patients who are looking for a fast onset of action.
On Monday, it was announced that the first-ever over-the-counter gel for Erectile Dysfunction launched in the US has received marketing authorization from FDA. However, Eroxon has already received approval from the European Union and Middle East parts and has been around in Belgium and the UK for some time.
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
It is a common condition in which a patient finds difficulty in getting and keeping an erection. According to a report, more than half of men between the ages of 40 and 70 are affected by this condition.
According to the World Health Organisation, in 1995, around 15 million men worldwide were affected by ED. It is expected that the numbers will touch 322 million by the year 2025. However, there are about 30 million people affected by the condition in the US only.
Erectile Dysfunction not only affects your erection, but it also affects your sex life, a sign of both psychological and physical condition.
The FDA-approved Eroxon, a hydro-alcoholic gel, is the best treatment for Erectile Dysfunction. However, it is the first-ever gel for treating the condition.
How the Gel Works?
If you’re suffering from an Erectile Dysfunction condition, you can apply the gel to the head of your penis and keep it for 15 seconds. According to an FDA report, the volatile component of the formulation of alcohol and water evaporates to create a cooling effect on the glans of your penis, recovering the slower warming effect.
As a result, it stimulates the nerve ending, and you will get a satisfying erection after 10 minutes of application.
How Much It Costs?
A Futura Medical spokesperson said a four-pack of Eroxon gel would cost around £24.99 in the UN. On the other hand, it will be around $31.22 in the United States. However, he claimed that these numbers are not confirmed yet.
