Sack irritation treatment

A contributor to another thread of mine mentioned that he'd had some trouble with an irritated scrotum, in his case as a result of minor trauma brought on by an ill-fitting parachute harness. I’ve had the same problem myself on occasion, as I suspect many ball-stretchers may do, and I thought that I should share my own remedy. I’ve had excellent results with the use of a readily-available product called Bag Balm. This is an antiseptic ointment which was developed way back in 1899 to relieve irritation on cows’ udders after milking! However, it works very well on human skin also. It appears to be quite widely available in North America – I don’t know about elsewhere. Check it out at:

The stuff basically consists of 0.3% 8-hydroxyquinoline sulfate (the antiseptic) in a base consisting of a blend of petroleum jelly (vaseline) and lanolin. The base characteristics give it excellent soothing, waterproofing and lubricant characteristics, although its lubricant qualities don’t match those of Secretleather’s excellent Sheacoa Butter. It comes in a distinctive green tin containing 10 ounces, which will last for quite a while! As an aside, it's also a highly effective metal preservative!

I’ve found that if I smear Bag Balm on the inner surface of a leather stretcher and then wear that stretcher overnight, any inflammation of my scrotal skin is immensely relieved next day. The treatment can of course be repeated if necessary. This constitutes an effective way of helping irritated skin to heal while maintaining some level of stretching effort. Works for me, anyway, so I thought it was worth sharing.

Repeated use of a stretcher with this material as a lubricant will lead to some softening of the leather. However, it doesn't seem to affect the stretcher's functionality in any meaningful way. Moreover, it protects the leather from the effects of sweat or other moisture very well indeed.
