What Is Balanitis?

Balanitis is redness and soreness in the head of the penis. It can cause extreme un-comfortability at the end of the penis and the loose flap of skin surrounding the tip. However, it can be treated and is often easy to prevent. Balanitis can affect men of any age group. But those who are circumcised are at a significantly lesser risk of getting the disease.

While balanitis is not an STD (sexually transmitted disease), certain STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia may contribute to the disease.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Balanitis

Balanitis Diagnosis

Balanitis is usually diagnosed during a physical examination because most of its symptoms are visible. Tests can include:

  • a swab of the urethral opening to check for STIs and other infections
  • urinalysis to check for signs of diabetes or infections
  • blood tests to check for signs of infections, diabetes, and other medical conditions
  • a skin scraping sample to look for mites under a microscope

Balanitis Treatment

Balanitis treatment begins with improving genital hygiene by washing and drying the foreskin. Other treatments that can be used to treat balanitis include:

  • Antifungal creams: Creams like clotrimazole or miconazole might be prescribed if a yeast penis infection causes inflammation.
  • Anti-itch creams: Over-the-counter and anti-itch creams can help with irritation and redness.
  • Steroid creams: Creams containing corticosteroids can help reduce itching and inflammation.
  • Antibiotics: If caused by a sexually transmitted infection, antibiotics can also be prescribed. The kind of antibiotic and duration will depend on which STI you have.
  • Circumcision: If you develop recurrent balanitis symptoms, your doctor might recommend laser circumcision or stapler circumcision to remove the foreskin and prevent future symptoms and complications.

FAQs About Balanitis Treatment

What is the cost of balanitis treatment in Kochi?

The cost of balanitis surgery in Kochi ranges between Rs. 26,000 to Rs 35,000. However, the final cost of surgery is estimated after considering various factors, like the choice of city and hospital where the surgery takes place, the experience of the urologist, the types of the surgery, cost of lab tests, underlying health condition, postoperative complications, etc.

Can balanitis spread to others?

The answer depends on what caused balanitis. If balanitis is due to normal bacterial infection or the usage of any chemical, it is considered non-contagious. However, if an STI causes it, the infection and the microbes in the foreskin can transmit to the other person. In this case, only the microbes are transmitted but not the disease. Certain bacteria or viruses cause balanitis, and that is contagious.

How to avoid balanitis?

Some of the best ways to avoid balanitis are:

  • Keep the penis and the glans clean. When washing the genitals, pull back the foreskin (if uncircumcised) and clean the head of the penis with mild soap and water so that all deposits of smegma are washed away.
  • Use a condom when having sex. It can prevent you from acquiring STIs.

When to see a doctor for balanitis?

If the head of the penis or the foreskin is inflamed and does not subside or go away in 3 to 4 days, you should consult a good urologist to treat balanitis. Also, if you have had unprotected sex anytime in the past, you must mention it to your urologist.

Pristyn Care urologists in Kochi are not only trained in providing balanitis treatment, but also in diagnosing and treating other penile disorders such as phimosis, paraphimosis, balanoposthitis, tight frenulum and many more.

Is balanitis a serious medical condition?

No. Balanitis is not a serious medical condition. However, leaving balanitis untreated can spread the problem to others and may be painful.

What are the complications associated with balanitis?

If left untreated, balanitis can cause chronic inflammation and lead to complications, like:

  • Lichen sclerosus:Also known as balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO), lichen sclerosus arises when white, hard patches develop on the skin. It can interfere with the flow of urine and semen through the urethra.
  • Scar tissue:Prolonged balanitis can lead to scarring around the glans and make the foreskin extremely tight to retract over the glans.
  • Ulcerative lesions:Balanitis can lead to painful sores and blisters that ulcerate and bleed and ultimately cause scarring. Open sores raise the risk of introducing other viruses and bacteria into the body.
  • Increased risk of cancer:Chronic inflammation increases the risk of several types of cancer.

Postoperative Care After Balanitis Surgery

Postoperative care is essential after circumcision surgery for balanitis. After the surgery, the urologist will give you tips on preventing complications after surgery. Listed below are some post-surgery care tips that you must follow for better recovery:

  • You might experience pain after circumcision. However, it should not be a huge cause for concern. Your urologist will prescribe medicines for pain management. Make sure you take all the medicines as recommended by the doctor.
  • Only wear loose-fitting clothes after your balanitis surgery. Doing this will reduce the risk of pain and swelling in the operated area. In addition, wear supportive underwear that would keep the penis protected.
  • Do not overexert yourself, and avoid heavy activities for some weeks after the surgery.
  • Avoid harsh soaps or lotions that can irritate the skin.

When to see a doctor for balanitis?

If the head of the penis or the foreskin is inflamed and does not subside or go away in 3 to 4 days, you should consult a good urologist to treat balanitis. Also, if you have had unprotected sex anytime in the past, you must mention it to your urologist.
