Dear sir,

It appears that you are having balanitis with results are fine then you need to get yourself further investigated with urine examination and ultrasound KUB.

In the meantime you should drink plenty of fluids and cranberry juice. You can also apply XXXXXXX emollient on the tip of penis to provide relief.

Take care

Sincerely

Dear Sir,

Balanitis can happen even with circumcized penis. Red and puffy glans suggest infection of the glans and you should take treatment for the same.
