Balanitis is swelling of the foreskin or head of the penis....The main cause of balanitis is poor hygiene . Poor hygiene causes harmful bacteria to overpopulate the area, which can lead to infection. The foreskin of the penis is an ideal place for bacteria to grow. Injuries on the tip of the penis or foreskin can also cause swelling...consult nearest dermatologist for clinical examination they will do the needful.
