Hi, thank you for contacted us. I am happy to help you with your current condition.

For your information, balanitis is an inflammation that caused by infection or chronic skin diseases.
It is ofen caused by an overgrowth of bacteria or yeast. The foreskin of the penis is an ideal place for these organisms to grow because it can trap moisture around the penis head. This infection might cause irritation to your skin hence itchiness happened.

Symptoms of balanitis may include:

  • tightened foreskin
  • discharge
  • itchy genitals
  • pain in the genital area
  • painful skin on the penis

Get that perfect skin with the right skin care.

Treating balanitis is about to eradicate the causes of irritations like discontinue the use of all perfumed soaps, lotions, or powders, as they are often are a cause of foreskin irritation. If the cause of balanitis is an infection, your Doctor might hive youantibiotic or antifungal. For over-the-counter medications, antifungal cream may help you but the key of treatment is eliminating the cause. You need to know what causing your balanitis first before using any drugs or ointment.
