I do love the scent of poppers so I got burnt under my nose despite uisng chapstick, lipbalm, even liquid band-aid. any ideas ? pls?

I got burn marks under my nose as well about a week ago. I let it heal for a few days, but I regrettably used poppers again while it was still healing and made the burn even worse. It was really red and was blistering. If yours is blistering, apply antiseptic cream to prevent infection. I did that and thankfully it didn't get infected. Once it has healed enough that it doesn't leak fluid, use aloe vera to speed up the healing. It'll become really dry and start to peel as well, but make sure you don't scratch it or deliberately peel it. Mine still hasn't full healed yet (it's currently in the peeling phase), but most of the redness has gone. Just refrain from using the poppers at all while it's healing, don't do what I did.

and in terms of avoiding the burns, I've started to always wipe the rim of the bottle with a tissue before inhaling. Sometimes when you store the bottle away on its side, some of the liquid stays on the rim. Also, don't stick your nose too far into the bottle. I had a big 30ml and once I had used half of it, it was difficult for me to get the fumes since the liquid was so far down the bottle. If that becomes the problem, transfer the poppers to a smaller bottle, so you won't be shoving it up your nostril.

I converted a dust mask by cutting off the filter, taping over the unnecessary holes, fitting a neoprene tube that would fit in the neck of the bottle. One can then put the mask on and place the tube in the TOP of the bottle, NOT in the liquid, and snort away for a big safe unburning hit! Have fun with your DIY skills!

To prevent poppers burns stick a small piece of masking tape right over the area which usually burns. Remove after your session is complete. This ridiculously simple solution is 100% effective even though it might make you look like Hitler jackng off!

One trick that I found effective is to take an empty water bottle, throw some cotton balls in it and pour the popper liquid. The cotton balls absorbs the liquid and that works great. No nose burn. The problem though is its only great for one session. Once it dries up you won't get much of a high. So if your looking for multiple uses maybe the masking tape idea might work. Though that wouldn't be so hot in a hook up lol

Hi Jwpalm - I did feel self conscious at first using the tape trick with others, but after a hit or two they don't seem to worry about it.

I've mostly inhaled from the bottle but this year I thought of putting some cloth in a glass spice bottle and droppering (or pouring in a hot pinch) some of my isobutyl (English Premium) and giving it a moment. The high was better and more efficient and the external skin burns and spills were eliminated.
But another posting on this site said to use "hemp cloth" and not to use white cloth as he said the bleaching interacts and creates Dioxin!
I am not a chemist but if true, this is a very dangerous carcinogen.
So I ended up with a piece of a tan sock and about to try it out. Hope the synthetic in the sock's fabric won't kill me. Where does one find hemp cloth anyway?

RadS said on Sun, 5 Mar 2017 at 06:47...

Hemp cloth is burlap - available at the hardware store.

I use poppers regularly and I accidentally got some on my penis, I now have a burn, what can I do?

RadS said on Fri, 10 Mar 2017 at 03:37...

maxx - What part of your penis was affected?

Incognito said on Tue, 28 Mar 2017 at 07:44...

Masking the affected areas is best way to prevent popper burn. I really enjoy using "Bears Own" for masturbating to anything digitally, whether it being cam girls or tube videos. It's like a different reality. However, unprotected areas cause this popper burn all the time. It's ingredients are Isopropanol, Isopropyl Nitrite.

I think the best solution would be to make a latex nose mask that also covers the top lip, with two tubes that insert into the nostrils. This shall prevent the bottle opening and any liquid / fumes directly contacting the outer skin. The vapours would go up the nostrils through the tubes.

I get burned all the time. I think it's due to the fact that I'm often trying to get maximum mileage out of my bottles, so I often have bottles that are a couple months old, and (like rabbit mentioned) I have to work a little harder to get fumes, so I'm more likely to touch the bottle to my face.

I should try to remember to wipe off the rim more often, as this is usually happening when I'm jerking off to porn.

I also think the shape of my nostrils is part of the problem. They're not particularly unique to look at, but they slope down quite a bit at the base, but curve and flare up a bit in the center, so it's hard to get the bottle close enough to be able to get the fumes without accidentally having the bottle touch my face.

When fucking (I'm versatile, so I've experienced both sides of the equation) it can also be pretty hard to get a good whiff, depending on what position you're at, how slippery your hands are, etc, without angling the bottle in a way that's likely to spill or get the rim wet.

I was bottoming once, and a clumsy too dropped the bottle on my chest and it all spilled all over my chest and torso. He just picked it up and screwed the lid on. I had to repeat myself a few times that I needed to rinse it off and wipe off with a towel, which I wasn't happy about, but that's kind of another story.

I was super lucky, though. Even though I had direct contact to a large portion of my skin on my stomach, chest, and collar, and it stayed there for a good minute and a half, almost nothing happened. Part of the area turned a little bit red, like a very mild sunburn, but it never crusted, scanned up or peeled.

I used poppers over the last week and I've managed to get a burn from it due to someone catching my hand whilst trying to inhale, what's the best solution for the burns on the top of my lip and on my nose as I am in a bit of pain with them and how long do they take to heal?

youngguy567 said on Sat, 26 Aug 2017 at 09:19...

I was cruising and sniffing poppers with a sexy older daddy and I put the bottle into my pants (ck briefs) which were around my ankles, once I had finished sniffing. I think some of the liquid may have leaked out perhaps lido not on properly as when we had cum I got dressed got back to my car and realised the bottle was still in my pants! Took it out and my balls stung a little so I think it must of got into contact. Now a few days later I've looked again and I have like a dark red scab on my scrotum which I think must be where the poppers burnt my skin. I've been putting e45 cream on it and washing regulary. Anyone any other advice? Or how long it will take to heal? Is say it's about 5 cm long

ralph said on Mon, 28 Aug 2017 at 19:34...

Been using poppers for years. My experience with burns on the nostrils is that they seem to occur if the popper bottle's rim touches your skin. I use a drinking straw also - one end in the bottle (NOT in the liquid) the other end in my nose. Fumes can burn also. Older poppers also seem to cause more burning but not sure why. The best first aid is to put some salted warm water in your hand and soak your nostrils for a minute or so. To camouflage popper burns try a little calamine lotion on a Q tip - lightly dab. Will help dry the burn out.

Wash your face after a session. A lot of these chems will break down skin cells even after inhalation.

Ralph said on Mon, 2 Oct 2017 at 17:49...

Popper burns are chemical burns. Put some Lavender essential oil on a Qtip and dab the burns around the nostrils. Will help then skin heal quickly.

Dont play with fire.It is the best way to avoid skin burn.


All poppered out!l said on Mon, 23 Oct 2017 at 05:48...

OMFG! Finally a forum to discuss too. Crap the dreaded popper burn on your nose!
First Aid:
I find that Vaseline helps with the irrational and he skin from getting at crusted.
Not gonna lie I totally peel any thing I can at the first sign of crust.
I also then use make-up (that foundation crap that's liquid) hey when you have to go to work and deal with the public you'll do anything!! .
-lot of good ideas will definitelys try the whole salt waterMC c thing

While inhaling :
I'm conscious of wiping the bottle before inhaling or handing off to another person. Definitely helps
Cotton balls in an orange medicine script bottle seems to do the trick and you can always refill as are into it.. (Definitely has been the best trick to date)send

That DIY tip- buddy mind creating a DYI video? cuz I totally got overwhelmed just from reading your directions. Please& thanks

A gas mask w/ hose and canister - ok I this once year ago and it was AWESOME! However the equipment was not mine and never really looked up where to purchase that equipment. Hot scene though!


Lol said on Fri, 29 Dec 2017 at 07:30...

Ugh thank god I'm not the only one who have had this problem I thought it was something else. Some friend of mine made me sniff some poppers with him just for fun and he SPILT the bottle all over my nose! I look like a burn victim

Ineedfisting said on Sun, 31 Dec 2017 at 13:16...

Use your lube arsejuise etc to lather the outside and inside of your nose don't inhale real hard,along with the other mentioned wipe the top of the bottle etc. and just love it lol

Ineedfisting said on Sun, 31 Dec 2017 at 13:23...

I did forget to mention keep it cold(far longer and better lasting I have an ice bucket to put mind in between hits )and if your real keen net search popper training porn

Righel said on Sun, 7 Jan 2018 at 06:02...

I got it the first time many years ago.

Since I did not know what it was I did not treat it right and it actually evolved to something similar to chicken-pox and the only thing that stopped it was antibiotics.

Now I learned that zinkpaste is very effective directly after so I have a tube in my bag just in case always ;-)

Though I also experienced more burns the longer the bottle have been opened so that is definitely something I need to research, got some great tips here so hope that the zinkpaste will help someone as well :-)

Nova2 said on Sat, 3 Feb 2018 at 10:54...

Just liberally dab some Vaseline around your nostril before your session. As long as you're not hoofing so much up your nose that you rub all of the Vaseline off then you'll be fine. Even if you do, reapply.
Genuinely better than looking like Hitler - I really hope that no one tried to do that.
