This is a condition called balanitis.Balanitis is inflammation of the glans penis. Lack of aeration and irritation because of smegma and discharge surrounding the glans 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.
Thank you for your explanation.
I found there are quite number of Miconazole, anything specific?
By the way, how to do treatment? Just put the cream in my penis? In this case, can I still wear my underwear? Or I should lay down naked during this treatment.
I am sorry for asking this funny question :)
You should look into using a penis health creme every day. The good ones with all natural ingredients are made to combat dry, itchy skin down there and they really work. And if you get one with natural ingredients (Vitamin A and E) there will be no side effects either. Only relief. Check them out. Good luck!
Can you please help me with such cream made of natural ingredients (Vitamin A and E) there will be no side effects either. Only relief.
