What Is Penis Infection?

Penis or foreskin infection is when the foreskin becomes discomforting and painful due to inflammation. It can be due to skin conditions, infections, or poor hygiene. Also, a person suffering from balanitis (inflammation of the glans penis) is more prone to posthitis.

Circumcision is the surgical treatment for penis infection. Circumcision is one of the best methods to avoid penile foreskin problems, and many parents choose to circumcise their children to avoid penis infection in the future. Although it is highly prevalent in children, adults can also opt for this procedure. However, it takes longer for adults to circumcise than children.
