Balanoposthitis

Balanoposthitis: Symptoms, Causes, and treatment methods

About

A condition when inflammation occurs on both the penis foreskin (prepuce) and the head/glans.

Most studies have concluded that balanoposthitis is higher in the kids (0–5 years) and in sexually active males. [1]

- Affects only uncircumcised males
- Can appear at any age
- Indicates poor hygiene and a tight foreskin as main reasons
- Is treatable
- Only affects male

It is different from phimosis (difficult to retract and inflammation of foreskin) and balanitis (inflammation on head of the penis), as when a symptom of both is seen it is called balanoposthitis. Causes are mainly divided into infective, inflammatory, and precancerous conditions. It is caused mainly by infections like penile yeast infections, chlamydia, gonorrhea, fungal, and trichomoniasis; by having an increased risk of noninfectious conditions like eczema, injuries, rubbing or scratching, exposure to chemicals, and tight foreskin; or by everyday activities like swimming pool and sexual intercourse.

Symptoms:

Self-Diagnosable
Common symptoms include genital irritation/pain, penile discharge, groin rash, genital itching, foul smell, discolored or shiny skin, skin erosion or lesions, or dysuria.

People may experience
Pain area- genital
Penis discharge- thick white/yellow
Swelling- foreskin and glans
Skin issues- thick, leathery skin

Treatment

Self-Care: Maintain proper hygiene and regular cleaning of private parts. Cleaning needs to be done with a gentle hand or cloth through a mild soap and warm water. One should always keep the area dry.

Medications: Over-the-counter antibiotics (metronidazole cream), steroid creams or antifungal creams (clotrimazole cream) are recommended for decreasing inflammation and for tissue repair and growth.

Specialists: For more information, consult a urologist or dermatologist. At mfine, we’re here to help you with different areas of health issues. So, join us and get a holistic treatment program.
