Balanitis not cured for 4 yrs

Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

4 yrs ago had sex with prostitute. Contracted the balanitis. Had done blood test for hiv, syphilis,hsv and all negative. Rule out hpv as well. I always don’t believe the blood test, so i did 3 times blood test. But now the glans is still red and got red spots on it. What could that be? I had been treated with anti fungus cream, steroid and anti biotic these years. Still red, why? I almost went crazy thinking that there is some hidden disease doctor can’t diagnose because of my dirty sexual history. Would that be infectious? Why still red? I hope Dr can gv me a very clear answer. Thank you.

Greetings, thank you for your question.

We sincerely understand your concern with the discomfort. Generally Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans, or the head, of the penis, due to infection or another cause. Balanitis can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful, although it can be relieved with topical medication, a solid working diagnosis must be made prior to any form of treatment.
