I believe I have balanitis caused by poor hygiene. I also believe the poor hygiene is caused by phimosis. I can t properly clean under the foreskin. My question is do you believe I should try some suggested creams and see if it is cured or go to the doctors?

I have been diagnosed with balanitis 10 days ago, Dr told me to apply zinc oxide 2/3 times daily. Not much effect. Occurred after a 10 day treatment with Cephalexin for a leg wound. I had an upper respiratory infection on Memorial weekend so I started a course of Azithromycin. That doesn t seem to help either although I don t have the chest infection. Plan to see the doctor next week what do you think?

Just under two years ago I contracted Chlamydia which then resulted in reactive arthritis. I had the typical symptoms of swollen joints and also circinate balanitis. Within ten months or so all symptoms had ceased with the exception of the balanitis. It is treated successfully with a cortisone cream but I've read that prolonged use can actually make the condition worse. Is a prolonged period of balanitis normal after chlamydia caused reactive arthritis? Are there other more effective meds available. Are there other causes, bacterial or fungal, that might be causing this? Any help is appreciated.

I think I may have balanitis, what are the treatment options. It is the result of poor hygiene rather than contact with thrush. Symptoms inc. splochiness, irritation, small blisters, bad smell, smegma. Should I be thinking steroid creams or antibiotics?

Hello, about 2 weeks ago I had sex with a young lady. I wore a condom but it slipped off and i didnt notice it until after. I am uncircumsized. About a day or so later I started to have an irritation -- this has progressively gotten worse. It feels like burning on the head of the penis and around the testicles. I havent seen anything that looks like herpes but i did notice today a stain on the head, like red/brown. I am thinking it is a form of candidas balanitis perhaps? or Could this be herpes?
