Hi there ~

Thank you for bringing up your concerns. I would think that washing the head of your penis after masturbation or any sexual activity and while showering should be done as a routine. Try this and if you can avoid masturbation for about a week. You should see good results. If balanitis is due to a fungal infection, the creams prescribed by your doctor should have worked. However if it was a viral infection it is not going to be helpful. Have your HIV and WBC counts checked. Hope you visit with your doctor for the same.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
