How do I determine if 'nofap' is pseudoscience?

I'm only just entering undergrad, and I stumbled across this group that gives off the vibe of a cult called 'nofap.' Their homebase is a section of reddit called r/nofap, and they claim things like
"if you don't fap for about 90 days, your brain will reboot itself to its normal state"
"by not fapping for an extended period of time, I notice girls are more attracted to me, and I get boners more often, and I actually grew to like them"
"i have more energy due to higher testosterone, and I felt the effects of nofap even before I found out about it"
Of course, these are all paraphrisations, but I want to know what /sci/ thinks. There must be trained physiologists here, right?

Diagnosis time /sci/.
Itchy rash being the only symptom aside from diarrhea which is most likely unrelated.
Starting on the chest and neck, the rash has spread onto the lower half of the face along with over the entire torso and slightly down, starting on the extremities.
Aside from the rash, there are no other typical symptoms of meningitis (Not the right kind of rash), measles, etc.
Chlorphenamine (antihistamines) has been administered with no effect.
