Long term Balanitis

I’ve had what appears to be balanitis for 8 months now. I’m uncircumcised. I’ve tried ketoconaznole, triamcinolone, hydrocortisone, nystatin& triamcinolone. Also used basic lotions etc. basically nothing has worked. The most recent dermatologist I saw said that I have balanitis that turned into dermal hyper sensitivity/ a sensitized skin. He prescribed desonide ointment that didn’t work and also prednisone. Gave me some epiceram cream as well. I’ve been using the epiceram for a while now but still experiencing pain and balanitis. It seemed to improve a bit but still hasn’t gone away. I don’t use ANY soap and wash with lukewarm water once a day. I’ve never tried keeping it retracted for a period of time.
