Hi,

This is a condition called balanitis.Balanitis is inflammation of the glans (glands) penis. Lack of aeration and irritation because of smegma and discharge surrounding the glans (glands) penis causes inflammation and edema.More common in uncircumcised males.

It is usually caused by poor hygiene in uncircumcised men. The inflammation can be due to infection, harsh soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing.
One common organism associated with balanitis is a yeast known as Candida albicans.  Balanitis may occur because of excessive growth of Candida, due to moisture and warmth under the foreskin.

It can be treated by applying Miconazole, an anti-fungal medication.Most cases of balanitis can be controlled with medicated creams and good hygiene.

Inflammation has many possible causes, including irritation by environmental substances, physical trauma, and infection by a wide variety of pathogens, including bacteria, virus, or fungus—each of which require a particular treatment.

Retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. Apply bacitracin (not Neosporin) for pediatric patients if bacterial infection is suspected.
Apply topical clotrimazole for adult men with probable candidal balanitis.

If the symptoms persist, you would need to consult your doctor.

Let us know if you need any other information.

Regards.

Im an 18 year old male.  I have not had sex yet.  About 8 or 9 months ago I got a cut on my penis just below the head which will not go away.  I have abstained from masturbation for a week or so at a time but it just does not get better.  In fact, if I masterbate more than once a day,  it gets worse.  Sometimes, my head gets cut.  I think I got the cut due to hard masturbation and not excessive masturbation.

What do I need to do or who do I need to see?

21/male circumcised,     I have a similar problem, i have ruff calloused hands and noticed some irritation on the end of my shaft bellow the head, it then became small cuts  or breaks in the skin, so i stoped all masterbation (masturbation) and it started to itch but now it is like a swollen rash its been 5 months and this is my final option, every thing else has been `` inconclusive`` any help would be nice. i dont care about geting to become sexually active any more i just want comfort back         p.s. its not fungal or due to improper cleaning.

Hi,

I ripped my skin on the underside of my penis earlier this year.

I tried waiting and not having sex for months while putting on conventional lotion but that didn't work.

What did work was diaper rash cream that I applied every night for a month.  I used Desitin but I'm sure any diaper rash cream would work.  I essentially picked the product with the highest zinc oxide content, which I believe is the active ingredient.  Desitin had a zinc oxide content of 37%.

I didn't have sex or masturbate for a month and allowed the skin to completely heal.  During the process, the skin scabbed and peel but I continued to apply the cream till the skin color was the same as the rest.

I hope this works for you.

I will post this answer to similar questions because of its success and I noticed a lot of people are searching for a solution.
