Balanitis is an infection or inflammation of the skin on the head (glans) of the penis. In men who are not circumcised, this area is covered by a flap of skin known as the foreskin, or prepuce.
Balanitis can occur in both circumcised and uncircumcised men, although it occurs more commonly in men who are not circumcised.
Young boys generally are affected only if they have a very tight foreskin that is difficult to pull back (Phimosis).
Note: At Sidri International Skin Hair & Sexology Clinic , Phimosis / Tight Foreskin Treatment can be done without CIRCUMCISION (Circumcision is Removal of the foreskin from the human penis).
You don't have to get your Precious Foreskin Removed. We treat Phimosis without Surgery/ Without Circumcision.
A variety of infections and skin conditions can cause balanitis. These include:
Infections with yeast (Candida) or bacteria that live on the skin (the most common cause)
Sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes simplex
Irritation of the skin by soap, detergents or spermicidal jelly
Benign (noncancerous) skin conditions such as psoriasis
Some types of skin cancer (very rare)
While any man can develop balanitis, the condition is most likely to occur in men who have a tight foreskin that is difficult to pull back, or who have poor hygiene.
Diabetes can make balanitis more likely, especially if the blood sugar is poorly controlled. High blood sugar causes elevated amounts of sugar in the urine.
Sugar-rich urine that dribbles on to the glans and under the foreskin provides a friendly environment for yeast and bacteria.
Also, people with poorly controlled diabetes have a harder time fighting infections.
When balanitis keeps recurring, it may be caused by a yeast infection transmitted back and forth between partners during sexual contact.
Symptoms of Balanitis:
A red, inflamed rash on the head and shaft of the penis or under the foreskin
Itching or burning in the affected area
A white, clumpy or yellowish discharge from the affected skin or from under the foreskin
