The 24-year old is now paying a heavy price and once again is undergoing a surgical procedure to remove the hardened jelly or risk mutating the arms. The doctors are working on cleaning the mess from his triceps.

He said: "I'm only 24, and my immune system is so far coping with this inflammation, but I really do not know what will happen next.

"That is why I started the surgeries to get rid of this nightmare."

He added: "I bulked up my arms when I was 20 due to my own stupidity. I did not think about the consequences."

Surgeon Dmitry Melnikov gave Kirill the deadly warning that he was at risk of dying if he didn't remove the hardened petroleum jelly from inside his arms.

Kirill explained: "I am very lucky that there are doctors who took me on.

"The hardest surgery will be on my biceps... the nerve responsible for the arms' sensitivity is inside.

"God forbid something happens to this nerve and I cannot move my arm.

"I really worry about this. I am very afraid.

"I should have thought about this earlier, I know. I blame myself, I know I'm guilty."

Talking about Kirill's condition and his first surgery, Melnikov said: "Petroleum jelly saturates the muscles, under skin tissues and the skin itself.

"All that has to be removed, but we need to keep the vein, nerves and other functions of the limb."

He further added: "Petroleum jelly is not designed for injection, only external application.

"Kirill injected about three litres into each arm. It saturated the muscle tissues, blocked blood flow.

"As a result the tissue dies and gets replaced with a scar which is as tough as a tree, you can even knock on it and hear the usual sound. We have removed all this.

"He had high fever, strong pain, and weakness."

Kirill is expected to work to get operated on again this year to remove the remaining jelly from his arms.
