    Suggest ways to rule out balanoposthitis

Posted on Mon, 10 Jul 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: My spouse used hydrogen peroxide on the head of his penis, and ever since then the head of the penis is very reddened and he has cracks on his inner foreskin. It is painful and won't heal. It's been a few months with this issue. What can he do to get it back to normal?
