As I write this, I've been wearing a Chinese A358 cage (copy of Evotion's Cage 8) for a little over five days straight. I've been using mineral oil to lubricate the ring. I had read to use baby oil, but when looking it up online, sources said that baby oil was just mineral oil, and I already had some, so I've been using that. It's hard to just put it in one specific area as it ends up all over my fingers and then the rest of my scrotum. I use some toilet paper to wipe off the excess and the areas that don't need it, but it still tends to end up all over. Plus I'm sure my underwear spreads it around some. Anyway, I've been getting that burning sensation that I had always attributed to the ring chafing, and there's definitely some of that going on, but I've also come to realize that a fairly large portion of my scrotum on the underside is irritated and burning/itchy, even though it's not in contact with the ring. I've tried putting some moisturizer on it and that helps for a while, but eventually it starts to bother again. Is this a consequence of repeatedly putting oil on my scrotum for several days in a row and having it get on most of the skin, or is something else going on here? The ring itself is snug, but not painfully tight, I can slip a finger between the ring and my scrotum in the center, but it's fairly tight and I can't do that off to the sides where the testicles are. There's no testicle pain at all, it's just the skin that feels raw. Color and warmth are fine as is the feeling, other than the irritation. Using the next largest ring caused even more problems as the larger size allowed the skin to slip through it more easily and it always felt like it wasn't positioned right.
