Balanitis Treatments, Causes, and Symptoms
Balanitis is a medical condition characterized by inflammation or infection of the glans of the penis. Balanitis can occur at any age but is more likely to affect boys under four years of age, as well as adult men who have not been circumcised.
CAUSES OF BALANITIS
When bacteria or yeast spread under the foreskin and into the soft tissues they cause an infections. The body reacts to the disease by creating inflammation. Balanitis is most common in uncircumcised males and it can be caused by poor hygiene around the foreskin of the penis. Balanitis can be a result of an excess of a yeast on the skin called candida. Those who have diabetes are at increased risk of balanitis. That's because droplets of sugar-rich urine may remain on the foreskin after urination. The droplets enable bacteria to thrive and cause infection and disease.
TREATMENTS AND REMEDIES FOR BALANITIS
After a diagnosis with balanitis, treatment options include anti-itch, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory creams. There are even some balanitis home treatment remedies such as avoiding certain skin products like scented soaps. Other balanitis home treatment remedies include improved hygiene, better skin care, and better drying techniques. In other cases, an antibiotic is prescribed. Some will even recommend circumcision for certain people. Some doctors will recommend topical steroids with hydrocortisone instead of antibiotics or antifungals. These can be harsher on the body.
To relieve balanitis you need a medical grade solution that quickly cleans the area and kills the bacteria at the root of the infection.
